Jimi Vs. Mitja

German reality TV champions, Jimi Blue Ochsenknecht and Mitja Lafere are pitted against each other in an assortment of bizarre challenges in this six episode series for Cartoon Network. 

In unusual locations like amusement parks, outdoor areas or the local Knights Festival the two friends battle to see who will be crowned the winner and who will be left in shame.

​We were asked to create an iconic animated introduction featuring Jimmy and Mitja facing off in a mighty clash of magic, kung fu and roller coaster rides.

Working from the basic storyboard provided by Cartoon Network, we created a more refined and detailed animatic to define the look of each frame and set out the action. Each set of frames were then animated and brought to colour, adding in the 3D elements before bringing the whole sequence together.
