Brand-new children’s animation, The Sound Collector, produced by Eagle vs Bat has arrived to ITVBe and ITVX on demand! The first of 60, 5 minute episodes premiered on the 20th February with further episodes available everyday at 10.20am on ITVBe.
Narrated by Keira Knightley, the show’s central character has a passion for sound, despite being very hard of hearing. As his name suggests, the sound collector spends his days collecting the sounds that he finds on his adventures of the world around him; from hissing tides, to the snores and snuffles of his best friend Mole.
The quirky new show is a delight to both the ears and the eyes, with beautiful stop-motion animation by the multiple award-winning Mackinnon and Saunders, who have bought some of the best-known animated characters to life - including the Academy Award-nominated Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio and Netflix’s hit The House.
Narrator Keira Knightley says “As a viewer and a parent, The Sound Collector is a welcome relief for me. It’s a real hit with my own family – something 3 generations can sit down and enjoy together. I love the space it allows – every time we watch an episode, we feel soothed.”
OnSight had the pleasure of working with Eagle vs Bat’s Creative Producers Tom and Erica Angell on The Sound Collector, with Post Producer Jade Townsend managing our involvement in the project. Our Colourist Emily Russul-Saib completed the final grade and handed the project over to Andrew Fisun for the Online Edit.
