BBC Sport loved the timings and animation ideas. I moved onto animate each cyclist while Sean Womersley created wonderful painted backgrounds. I had to create each cyclist silhouette and build them so they could be easily animated and posed in different positions.
Finally it was a case of compositing everything together using the animatic as a guide and building each scene. After seeing the final animation there was a great reaction from the producers at BBC Sport.

An Epic story about not just any chicken, a ThunderChicken!!!
ThunderChicken has one crazy-ass night out with his partner in crime, D-Dog. It's adventures of the blurred-times when these two get together in this 1981 classic that has been restored from VHS for you to now enjoy!
Recommended for the mature viewer as this cartoon features violence, drug use and pretty graphic sex references. You have been warned. NSFW!!!
Track produced by Command Chi (Rob Clarkin)
Lyrics written and performed by Mc Entity (Matt Johnson)
