How to make a Boovie: part 1 overview

Ok, first things first, what's a Boovie?

It's our word for something that's not a book and is not a movie, it's a hybrid of both.  Every page has an animated illustration, a short looping movie that brings rich and colourful images to life (basically a very enhanced ebook -but we are not keen on the word 'ebook').

One of the double page spreads from Galdo's Gift -The Boovie

We've developed various inventive techniques for creating an animating these illustrations and were asked recently about the process and how it could help children learn when producing our first Boovie, Galdo's Gift.

So we decided to make a short video to explain ourselves.  It's one of our first, so please be kind.
