Barbara Bredero made a movie called ‘Dikkertje Dap'(2017), based on a rhyme of Annie MG Schmit. It’s a story about the friendship between a little boy and a Giraffe.
The Titlesequence was the perfect place to tell a bit more about the friendship of the two friends.
We based the artwork of the sequence on the beautiful drawings of Fiep Westendorp, who illustrated all the story’s of Annie MG Schmidt.
The client wanted as little animation as possible, so mainly stills. A little bit odd for us, cause normally a client wants as much animation as possible.
Thank you so much Hilde Buiter for all your help and the beautiful animation.
