Chuggington Gives Green Light to Redboard
London, UK (PRWEB UK) 10 October 2012
Ludorum have adopted Redboard's storyboarding and animation pre-production system for their 4th Series of Chuggington. Chuggington follows the exciting adventures of young trainees Wilson and his friends Brewster and Koko as they learn to ride the rails. The show is broadcast on CBeebies and is a truly global property aimed at 2-5 year olds, shown in over 178 territories and translated into 27 languages.
Redboard is a revolutionary pre-viz technology that allows you accurately plan and manage your animation production. Starting at the pre-production and storyboarding stage, you can seamlessly transfer design, camera and scene data into your CG workflow. Much more than a simple storyboard application, Redboard benefits directors and producers alike by maximising the clarity of pre-production data, thereby eliminating the need for time-consuming corrections later in the process.
The Head of Technology at Redboard, Neil Marsden, explained some of the issues involved: Chuggington represents a significant challenge from a pre-production perspective. There are a huge number of characters who inhabit a complex dynamic world with a considerable number of sets and environments. In addition most of the main characters need to operate on a seemingly limitless number of tracks. Ludorum wanted an easy-to-use solution that would allow them to accurately transfer the storyboards and pre-production data to their studio in China.
