Description

The appointed animation studio will design and produce two animated educational videos working from scripts that will be developed by the Royal Observatory Greenwich's learning team.

They should both be 3 minutes long but will be aimed at different ages.

For primary students, the video will be about the planet Mars and, for secondary students, we will be focusing on the properties of stars.

We like to have lighthearted elements in the videos to help our audiences engage with the content and welcome creative input from the animation studio for this but we need to ensure the visuals created are factually correct and therefore the learning team will provide the script and input on the design too.

To help us select an animation studio for our project we are inviting applicants to submit a creative response on a given astronomy theme to show us how they would approach animating it with associated visuals of their animating style.

This project is most suitable for companies with an annual turnover of at least £50k
