Passion Pictures Enrolls in Jamie’s Dream School

Your guess is as good as mine as to how the team at Passion Pictures used Flash in this TV promo. This is a teaser for Jamie’s Dream School, which is airing on Channel 4 in the UK. It was directed by Marc Reisbig, while the Flash animation was handled by Nick Appleton, Cako Facioli and Grigoris Leontiades.


  1. Sounds like a pretty cool school to me.

  2. The textured style of this is so different to what one would expect from Flash, it’s wracking my brain on how something like this could be done.

    I’m thinking maybe it’s png textures brought into Flash, but even then the clean edging would be very difficult to hide without a lot of repetitive layering.

    But then I think it could be a post production effects too. Either way it’s very convincing work.

  3. It’s not very hard to use Flash animation as a mask in after effects and apply a different texture to the stroke or to the fills. But being Passion Pictures, the composition work is really top-notch.

  4. well, it’s lots of work I guess but they animated over still images. The simple camera moves are done in after effects and so are the textures. It looks really nice!
