This is a little animation style/pipeline test to try and refine the look of the show that my team and I put together. I’m so proud of all the work that’s been done so far, I can’t say how inspiring it is to work with such talented people who make me look good hahaha! This show is going to be so good!!!Feel free to share it around if you like, and if you’re interested in working on the show you can drop me a line personally!

The series is being animated at Ottawa’s Mercury Filmworks, the studio responsible for the animation on the Mickey Mouse shorts, Tangled: The Series, and the Disney XD series Atomic Puppet.
Like its other series, Mercury plans to use a Toon Boom Harmony pipeline for Hilda. But if the test is any indication, it appears that Coyle and crew will combine rigged puppets with a combination of drawn key poses, thus creating a less rigid look that better captures the flavor of Pearson’s organic drawings in the comic.
If you want to follow along with future developments, Hilda also has as an official Instagram account at @HildatheSeries.
