PEN15 Animated Special
Client: Starburns Indsutries/
Studio Meala was approached to help create an Animated Special for the Emmy nominated show ‘Pen15’ alongside Starburns Industries for AwesomenessTV and Hulu. The concept and style of this one-off episode really intrigued us and we had a lot of fun pushing the creative boundaries not possible in its Live-Action episodes while posing, animating and compositing.
Pen15 is a ‘Traumedy’ show created for Hulu telling the story of middle school through the eyes of Anna and Maya; two 7th grade girls dealing with the awkwardness of being a teenager in the year 2000. In the animated special ‘Jacuzzi’ while on vacation in Florida, the girls are introduced to a brand new set of insecurities. While they try to ignore them, a mystical turn makes their self-doubt impossible to forget.
