Making Magic (and Method) in the Digital Studio

We are pleased to announce Katapult are now the official sponsors of the Digital Studio at QUAD, to mark the occasion the Katapult team decided to test out some of the equipment last night when we took part in one of QUAD’s team-building animation workshops.

We started off with an introduction by Darius Powell, QUAD’s Digital Resources and Training Officer, by which point we were all itching to start creating and the ideas began floating around the room.

Within 4 hours we were aiming to come up with a stop-motion animation piece for our Method and Magic values to replace the Flash animation we currently have on our website. After a brainstorming session, storyboard and a bit of a debate along with lots of paper cutting, plasticine moulding, doodles and illustration the Method and Magic finally came together to produce a fun and quirky animation.

Apologies to QUAD for any plasticine clouds or worms we may have left behind!

The animation is currently undergoing a few tweaks from Phil, applying his post production k-motion magic and we expect to have a version on the Katapult site soon.

Courses range from learning Digital SLR Photography, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Animation, Screenwriting, Film Production, Music Production and Graphic Design. The studio also works on a wide range of education and community projects which can be seen on their blog.

The Cycle Blackpool website is now live.

Like existing client Cycle Derby, Cycle Blackpool is also a ‘cycling demonstration town’ funded by Cycling England, each town has slightly differing priorties but they are all tasked with encouraging take-up of cycling and improving cycling infrastucture.

We have worked closely with the team at Cycle Blackpool in the design and build of the new Cycle Blackpool site which includes the latest news and events, routes and cycling clubs in the region, social media, a blog and a forum. Katapult are currently in the process of adding more features to the site including a cycle route logging system using Google Maps and a ‘cycle to work’ challenge which allows companies to set goals & log trips.

We are working on a number of other cycling projects at the moment: a recent pitch win to work on the Tour of Britain South West Stages and a Cycle to School Challenge with Cycle Derby.
