Hardy Perennial Pizza was produced by Minds-Eye Productions Ltd for the BBC as a promo for a possible christmas special. The original story and artwork was created by Andy Catling. The 2D animation was produced by a London studio (I forget who) and the 3D CGI backgrounds were created by Sean, Andy and me at Minds-Eye. We combined the 2D and 3D by mapping the 2D animated sequences onto planes in the 3D scene. This technique allows the 2D animation to cast raytraced shadows in the scene and allows the scene lighting to tint the 2D. Overall it makes the two gel more realistically.
Sadly, the promo never went anywhere and the project got canned.
