HISTORY OF EARLY CIVILISATIONS: MAYA AND ISLAM
LizardfishTV had been commissioned to produce 10x short films for BBC Teach, an online learning resource for teachers.
The videos commissioned were to cover the history of early Mayan and Islamic civilisations in a fun and engaging way. This was achieved through creating spoofs of popular factual entertainment shows such as Dragons Den, Masterchef, Grand Designs, How to Look Good Naked and The Apprentice. We were approached during pre-production to pitch and quote for the post production for these 10 films, initially to offer CGI backdrops for each film and motion graphics but we took the decision to also offer a complete post production package, covering VFX supervising during the shoot, editing, compositing along with the CGI backdrops, motion graphics and additional 3D animation elements.
