Burkardt Adds Visual Language to Idiomaniacs

Sam Burkardt, an animation director based in Paris, recently put the Adobe Creative Suite to the test. Along with French production company 3xplus, Burkardt designed and animated this pilot presentation for a multilingual series titled Idiomaniacs. Aimed at the 8 and up crowd, the 1-minute episodes explore and compare the idioms of 4 foreign languages – English, German, French and Spanish. The series comes complete with an interactive website with games and descriptions of the origins of these idioms. Burkardt used Illustrator and After Effects, but animated in Flash.


Distribution for Idiomaniacs is being handled by MegaFilms.
