Working with the wonderful digital and education team at Shakespeare's Globe, we developed a cast of characters to inhibit their new educational space ‘The Globe Playground’! featuring games and activities for 5-11 year olds.
We created a character bible so that the characters could be adapted and brought across from screen to print. The bible featured facial expressions and poses, colour palettes, ‘how to draw’ illustrations and guides on creating backgrounds in the same style.
As part of the project we also created a short film to introduce our cast as they prepare for a performance. The ramshackle company of animal actors each play their own part in the day to day running of the Shakespeare’s Globe. Each Beast has their own skill, whether it’s costume design, prop making or play writing, which aids the creation of the plays they perform. The animals personalties match a different Shakespearian archetype, which determines their role on stage.
