    Comments Below Intro Animation – COPA90

  • About

    How we made the COPA90 Comments Below Intro

    Youtube channel sensation Copa90 needed an animated intro for their weekly show Comments Below. Hosted by Poet & and David Vujanic aka Vuj, the pair discuss the weeks goings on in the world of football.

    Inspiration

    The brief was inspired by Roy of the Rovers comic strips and strangely; the old animated intro from BBC kids show Grange Hill. Dah, dah, dah daaaaaa.

    During the course of the animation we track Poet and Vuj as they embark on their way to the studio, naturally via Wembley stadium for a head to head shoot out between the two hosts.

    Illustration for the project came from the immensely talented Roger Wade.

    Wondering where the inspiration and reference for Poet’s kick/shoot scene came from? From┬áhours spent watching this famous moment in history as David Beckham secured England’s place in the 2002 World Cup. Here’s the storyboard for the COPA90 Comments Below Intro:

    Safe to say if was fantastic fun working on this. All in all, we loved mixing the artistic, cartoony style with the on-pitch football shot. Check out the animation we did at the top of this page, or on any Comments Below video on the COPA90 YouTube Channel.
