BETWEEN THE LIONS is a popular children’s education television series designed to foster the literacy skills of its viewers, while playfully demonstrating the joys of reading. Teaching is done through the use of catchy songs and often animated shorts. This particular segment combines live action puppet characters, music and animation.
The main characters were videotaped against a blue screen. The idea is to replace the blue screen with animation. It was our job to create the animated sequences while maintaining sync with the provided video and ultimately deliver the final product suitable for high quality broadcast television.
Between the Lions is produced by WGBH Boston, Sirius Thinking, Ltd. and Mississippi Public Broadcasting. ...
