Fun films featuring the Beasts of Shakespeares Globe.
Published:
 
We were delighted to create this fun little film to introduce our ramshackle animal cast of the ‘Globe Playground’ to kids.
 
We find our company in full force, preparing for a performance at the Globe, break a leg! 
 
Client: The Globe 
Direction & Illustration: Persistent Peril
Animation: Ginny Jones, Emma Wakley, Garth Jones, Mark Billington, Jonny Clapham
Producer for PP: Sam Bourner
Creative director for The Globe: Harper Ray
Music: Jim Fowler
 
Following on from the success of the ‘Globe Playgrounds’ launch, the Globe asked us to excerpt a scene from five classic Shakespeare plays and create a series of short 40 second films. 
 
Excerpting a scene into a fun bite size short without dialogue was a great challenge. Keeping the action on the Globe’s famous stage we find our characters in the midst of a performance.
 
Once again we worked closely with the Globe’s Education team as we sourced textures and based the backgrounds on the iconic Globe theatre itself.
