William Smith - Colours Beneath Your Feet

Tentacle Project

arrow1

Colours Beneath Your Feet, tells the story of William ‘Strata’ Smith, who created the first detailed geological map of England, Wales and parts of Scotland. The centrepiece is an 1815 copy of Smith’s beautiful, hand-coloured map of parts of the UK on loan from Dudley Museum and Art Gallery and the Larwood family. 

The exhibition hosted at the North Lincolnshire Museum looks at Smith’s life and times, how he created the map and why he is remembered as the ‘Father of Geology’.

We had the chance to work with the great people at the museum to produce a series of short social animations to help promote the exhibit.

The Making

A little insight into our minds!

arrow1

The original William Smith Map was the biggest inspiration to the look and feel of these animations. We wanted something that would sit along side the map and depict the time that William Smith was around.  

We looked through old historic material collected by the museum to help develop William Smith into a character for the animations and used colours from the map to link and build  certains areas of the landscape for him to sit within. 

Heres some artwork starting from the basic linework all the way up to full colour.

We used atmospheric sound scapes to make it feel like you are part of the scene with William Smith, watching him at work. 

Animation Passes

Heres an interesting little snippet of how the animation was built up over a series of different passes. 

We hope you enjoyed the animations. Why not head over to our main page and check out our other Tentacle projects!
