Animals’ ailments animated by Brass for new CBBC series

Brass has produced a series of digital animation sequences for a brand new CBBC children’s television programme ‘The Pets Factor’. The series is an observational documentary in which vets are treating a whole host of loveable pets with a huge range of animal ailments. There’s everything from a constipated snake, a balding chicken, a massive operation on a tiny goldfish and a dog that’s swallowed a smelly sock.

‘The Pets Factor’ is a 2 x 10 x 20 series, produced by True North for CBBC which gives the audience an access-all-areas glimpse into life behind the scenes of some of the very best and most animal-friendly vet’s practices in the UK. The first episode aired on Tuesday 20th June on CBBC at 5.30pm and is available on iPlayer and Children’s IPlayer.

Brass was appointed by True North, the production company behind ‘The Pets Factor’, to animate scenes within each episode.

The animals appear in the show at the point where they are ill or injured. We were asked to bring out the personality of the animals and tell the stories that led to their visit to the vets. We’ve also developed the title sequence and branding aspects for the shows.

Previous work by Brass for CBBC has included animation work on an episode of the award winning documentary series ‘My Life’ and an original online game for the CBBC characters ‘Hacker and Dodge’, which was shortlisted for both a Webby Award and a Children’s BAFTA.
