EARLY LEARNING LANGUAGES AUSTRALIA
Millipede for the Australian Federal Government & Department of Education & Training
The Australian Government funded the ELLA program Trial to test the effectiveness of providing preschool children (ages 3-5) with exposure to a language other than English.
Millipede was commissioned to lead the learning design, language recording, creative direction and technical build for the program, as well as a system for tracking and displaying the Trial data.
The success of the original trial has seen it expanded in 2016 and 2017 to further childcare centres and additional languages, with a projection to ship nationally in 2018.
ELLA is a wonderful project to be apart of. It's extremely collaborative and brings together a team of designers, animators, developers, learning designers, producers and kids! The style of The Polyglots universe had already been set when I joined the project back in 2014 and I was responsible for the following:
- Character & Background Design
- Asset & Prop Design
- Character Rigging & File Prep for Animation (Adobe Animate)
- 2D Character Animation
