Animation: Monkey business at the BBC

It’s great to see that the BBC has come up with a very striking animated film to promote the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, which get under way this week.

The characters, adapted from the Monkey stories, are designed by Jamie Hewlett, and the music is by Damon Albarn, his partner in the animated pop group Gorillaz. Monkey and his pals will be the face of the BBC’s Olympics coverage.

The BBC Sport website has a gallery on the the making of the trailer and you can see more on the BBC Blast site.
