Smile! You’re on Candid Camera!
Smile! Your’e on Candid Camera! Was a one-off special retrospective looking at the history of the American series Candid Camera. The title sequence, designed by Paul Peppiate, take a quirky 60’s cartoon style and follows our hero as he goes about his day, unknowingly being filmed at every turn.
The sequence was commissioned by ITV and produced by Peppie / Sharpe. I was character / prop designer and oversaw and co-animated the characters, designed the props and story-boarded the whole sequence. Principle character animation was provided by Rozi Fuller.
The main animation was penciled by hand, scanned then inked in Flash before being combined with illustrator backgrounds in After Effects. Production time from start to finish was ten days,
The creative director and background artist was Paul Peppiate, with Jamie White (now at Motus TV) providing the after effects savvy and the final edit being completed at Mezzo Studios.
