Here’s to teamwork.
In any realisation of an idea, there’s the torturous process of navigating through all the approvals, the “can’t we just” slackers, the “no way” damners, and the inward gasps when you suggest what you need.
It’s with this in mind that the Children In Need animation montage spearheaded by Peter Kay is even more spectacular. As this goes on you begin to realise how seemingly impossible it must have been trying to get characters from the past 30 years animated, some of which have never even been considered in colour before. They span TV and film both from Britain, through to the most recognised forms in Animation Hollywood.
A credit to the vast teams involved in pulling this together, and for making a success of what could easily have been a mess of varied styles, perspectives and colours.
As Honda would say, “Difficult is worth doing”.
