The guiding principles for our animation was to maintain the clearest possible form of animation to enable the project to fulfil its educational goals. All animations share a number of features.
The action takes place on our viewer’s ‘virtual desk’. In the foreground there is an exercise book in which we illustrate the content of the lesson being read by the voice over.
The primary purpose of the left side is to communicate strictly technical information – the place for things like calculations and charts.
The right side serves to illustrate the content of the lesson in an attractive and slightly humorous way. This is also the playground of our protagonist – ONG. It is his ‘adventures’ that keep the viewer interested.
Notes are written on colourful sticky notes around the exercise book. They usually contain the key information the viewer should take away from the lesson.
