Insurance Emporium

— Mr Benn

Bringing the much-loved children’s television character Mr Benn out of the 1970’s and into the 21st Century in two handcrafted adverts for The Insurance Emporium, in collaboration with The Chase Creative Consultants.

To capture the original essence of Mr Benn for the films, the team used textured paper, ink pens and watercolours.  All of the of the characters and environments were drawn by hand and the artwork was then scanned and animated by the in-house team. Watercolours were painted onto paper and then incorporated for the authentic Mr Benn look. Both adverts use the iconic original soundtrack from the 1970’s and a voiceover from BBC Radio 4 favourite Miles Jupp.
