The Fritz is a pilot TV show project that was produced at QUT. It’s a panel-format TV show that discusses, pokes fun at, and parodies all the news, trends and developments in television entertainment.
Creating the idea involved discussion with The Fritz’s producer on style and mood, culminating in a storyboard pitch that was accepted. Production involved sourcing stock images, and taking assets made in photoshop, illustrator and Maya into After Effects. The resultant animation was used in a pitch by The Fritz producers to get the idea funded. After The Fritz received production funding from QUT, the animated sequence was updated with higher resolution images of the cast and guests – and more work introduced in the form of interstitial animations used to introduce show segments, and parody mockups.
