NZ COVID lockdown – Jack stays safe and @ home for it!

What does an animator do when in a lock down? Stay calm and keep on animating!

Since we’re all in this together, Cirkus produced these animated shorts supporting each of the 4 NZ lockdown phases. The spots  were uploaded on various channels including to the New Zealand government “stay home for it” awareness social media campaign as a light hearted call to arms during the COVID pandemic.

Curtains up for:

Animation Direction: Human Cannonball Romain Borrel

layout/comp: James Turnbull

Music and sound: Marshall Smith @ the Sound Room
