Jellyfish Pictures were at the forefront in heading up the production, handling design, and animation.

Headed up by Jellyfish Pictures' series director, Kitty Taylor, the look had to reflect that of the colourful world Bitz, Bob and their sidekicks, Purl, Bevel, Zip and Pop inhabit. Art Director James Grant created a series of environments and characters for the show, all encapsulating the eclectic inventions Bitz has created.

Moving from the designs and storyboarding stages our asset, modelling and layout teams got stuck in. Working on up to three episodes at any time, our animators started breathing life into the characters and their surroundings.

Finally, our compositors and lighters finished the look to deliver an inspiring show, encouraging a younger generation to get involved with S.T.E.A.M subjects.
