Animated work by Norwich students will be viewed on television sets across the county as regional freeview channel Mustard TV launches this week. The new channel, which features local news, sports and entertainment coverage, commissioned BA Animation students at Norwich University of the Arts (NUA) to produce a series of animated stings centred on the Mustard TV logo.

The project was run as a ‘live ‘brief’ under the Year 2 curriculum at the University, with the students pitching their ideas to Mustard TV and the best being selected to develop their stings for broadcast.
Daniel Gray: “The project simulated a client’s briefing which made it feel very real. The thought of having my work shown on Mustard TV is a great feeling of accomplishment. Being able to say “this is something I did” will look really good for future career opportunities.”
Elliesha Clarke: “Working with Mustard TV was a very professional and creative venture and I feel validated as an artist and animator that my work is considered well enough to be chosen.”
Eleanor Wright: “It gave me an opportunity to produce work for a client and I gained a small insight into what it is like to work in the industry. I am excited at the prospect of people other than my tutors, family and friends seeing my work.”
Tomas Tragarz: “Because this project was for TV I found myself being super motivated to achieve my goals. The fact that I would be working on something for broadcast gave me enough motivation to spend hours learning 3D animation techniques. I absolutely loved it.”
