This is a busy time. Not only is Ker-Boot getting a make over but so are the Rainbow Dragons! Only now they are more aptly named, Tridragonals Set Go!
Buddhi from Beyond Motion is working with me in making the dragons a little bit less primary coloured, and more suitable for motion capture!
Last week I got to put on a motion capture suit and interpret my own characters for a test. It was pretty physical work pretending to be dragons that are kids!
I am looking forward to seeing Bossy Goo, excitable Tina and cautious Rhomby strut their stuff.
Here I am all suited up opposite Buddhi Munasinghe and in the middle is Nick Lowe who came in to have a look at Buddhi's mocap set up.

New Look Ker-Boot by Alan Murphy

Kit and Ker-Boot is getting developed and it is so much fun! Kit is such a 'real' kid, most of all I like the fact that she gets into trouble for all her investigative behaviour but it doesn't stop her. The episode lengths have grown to ten minutes so Kit gets to make lots of discoveries with her constant companion, comforter and hapless assistant Ker-Boot. Ker-Boot has had a makeover thanks to designer Alan Murphy and he now looks like a fuddy duddy but caring grand fatherly figure that he is.

Kit and Ker-Boot is developed with the assistance of ScreenWest and Lotterywest.
