Waterproofing Animations

Over the past few weeks we have been making a series of 6 short films, which explain some of the consequences of failing to properly waterproof a property at the designing and building stages.

And if you don’t know much about those consequences, let me tell you now that they’re pretty darned scary – over the course of these 6 films we’ve had characters being electrocuted, drowned, gassed, flooded and had a building fall on them. It’s a good thing we don’t get too attached to our characters!

The films were made in a classic style of animation, reminiscent of the UPA style from the 1940/1950s, with a strong colour pallet, wonky angles and characters designed in profile.

They were created for RIW (Remember It’s Waterproof), who make a wide variety of waterproofing products and advise architects and builders about the best tools and techniques for the job.

Of the 6 films, it’s hard to pick a favourite. Some were more technical, and had very specific information they had to give, and some were more warning stories that allowed us to run with a theme. This one belongs in the latter category, and we had a lot of fun with it. It explores the consequences of failing to properly waterproof a plant room.
