Wonder Boy

Pioneering video design for the ground breaking Wonder Boy production

PW Productions

We were responsible for creating and directing the video design and animation across Wonder Boy - a dynamic, funny and heartfelt play exploring the challenges of communication and stammering. The play is now showing on Sky Arts and touring the UK again this summer 2024. Tickets and more info here!

Creative captioning was at the heart of the process, requiring a pioneering approach to make sure every single line in the script was displayed visually and in sync with the performance. The captions were carefully designed to expand on the scenography and script, building on the comic book style of the show, adding to the visual language and helping to communicate the energy and emotion of the characters and their stories.

It was a huge success receiving a five-star review from The Guardian
