Powerhouse has had many opportunities to work with the NFPA’s lovable and informative mascot Sparky the Fire Dog over the years. This project was unique from the outset when we initially began talking about how to incorporate the 5 foot live action puppet into a 2D animated world via green screen filming and compositing. With a combination of live action, Flash animation, After Effects, and Photoshop, we were able to create a world full of various styles, textures, and colors. The final product is an incredibly fun, whimsical, educational, and most of all entertaining.
