Napkins? Plates? Knives and Forks? What are they, and where did they come from?
This innovative comedy series needed some cool graphics to explain the history and etiquette of contemporary dining. A retro-inspired character and device set brings this comedy-documentary to life.
Eatiquette is a 6-part TV intersticial series that imparts information on dining etiquette in a comedic yet factual way (all episodes are now available on YouTube here!).
While the majority of each episode is filmed, there is a short breakaway – which delves into the historical aspects of the theme – delivered as an animated sequence.
The motion graphics are a combination of original hand drawn elements and historical images spliced together to deliver the story in a dynamic and entertaining way. There are pompous waiters, flying knives, exploding wine barrels, five-pronged forks and cavemen with dirty faces.
