dock10 Completes Animated Music Videos For Sky Kids

News Image
dock10 has completed full post production and delivery of 10 x 3-minute animated music videos for Sky Kids.

Labuntina Sing-along, from animator and songwriter Valentina Ventimiglia, was developed as a song-based way to entertain and educate her young daughter. The series, featuring three characters, Judi Bee, Kodi Fox and Lili Fish, launched on Sky's Kids app earlier this year, with new music videos added regularly since then.

Originally a Kickstarter funded project, the team at dock10 worked with Valentina to help develop a pilot to take to market. The project was commissioned by Sky Kids' head of kids’'content, Lucy Murphy, on the final day of the 2017 Children's Media Conference in Sheffield. It was also backed by Creative England. Launched in April 2018, it is now available across Sky Kids' on-demand platforms, including Sky Q, Sky+, the Sky Kids app and the Now TV Kids Pass.

dock10 provided voice recording facilities, to record the children’s singing, along with music mixing, sound FX and final audio mixing. Vision-wise, the Salford-based post production team provided After FX compositing on certain shows, Flame online finishing, and QC and AS-11 deliverables to Sky.

Head of VFX Operations at dock10, Damien Lynch, commented: "It was a fantastic project to work on. It is a simple but lovely concept, and Valentina's enthusiasm, commitment and hard work made it a no-brainer to get involved with. To see a Kickstarter funded idea grow from a concept to a delivered commission has made the whole team proud to be part of its success."
