Lead Balloon Studios - Taking Off!

Updated: Jul 28, 2021

Hello everyone,

Yes we are aware of the absurdity of the title of this post but it's true! We've had our first commercial animation displayed on the GIANT TV on DMU's Vijay Patel Building.

Co-Founders of Lead Balloon Studios at the animation launch of the DMUworks rocket promo

This animation features a rocket, hence the puny title (sorry, not sorry). It was developed to advertise the Leicestershire Entrepreneurship Day, a Leicester Business Festival event hosted at DMU.

This animation was a lot of fun to work on and was a new experience having to work to such a tight deadline! We delivered and the animation looks great if we do say so ourselves.

The rocket itself was already a part of the DMUWorks brand but it was amazing to model and animate it. A great big thanks to Simon for this opportunity to see our work come to life and fly across campus.

See you soon and don't forget to smile! :)

Lolo & Dee

P.S. If you haven't seen the animation yet, you can watch it right now, it's only a few seconds.
