Swan Lake On Ice
Posted 4 years ago and submitted by Katy Davis | Share link: http://illo.cc/29922


Last month I completed a short character design animation for the wonderful people at Dead Ready Productions.

They had the brilliant task of creating digital set animations for the Imperial Ice Stars’ production of Swan Lake on Ice, which has recently completed a run of 5 shows at the Royal Albert Hall.

The unique interior of the Hall led the show’s producers (Lunchbox Theatrical Productions) to replace their usual touring set with an impressive LED wall measuring 50 feet wide and scaling over 12 feet in height. The wall stood along the back edge of the ice rink, and displayed a wide range of scenes designed specially for the performance, all at an incredible clarity and brightness.

Part of the set backdrop consisted of a scene where a stag grazes in the midst of the woods, looks up shocked, bucks, and gallops off. Dead Ready called me in for this part of the job, and I happily went on my way to create 350 seperate illustrations of the stag.

As I'm based in Australia, I've never even met Katy who has already produced one short animation for our company, with two more on the way. To have someone that professional, enthusiastic and motivated that we've been able to complete a project just via email is amazing. Her artistic direction has been a great attribute to the production and her drawing styles and initiative are fantastic. She's been a pleasure to work with and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending her to anyone else looking for an animator.
