Rapunzel really needs help, but she’s in a bit of a fix, you see. Due to ‘certain circumstances’ she’s unable to leave her ‘house’...

The knight in shining armour, who also happens to be a Specsavers Optometrist, is galloping her way on his trusty steed, braving dragonfire as he goes, and bringing everything with him to test her eyes and try on some stylish new frames too. What a dreamboat.

The Kitchen’s diversely talented, and classically trained team - Animation Director Sam Burton, Character Designer Jacob Merrick-Wolf, and Jelly Illustration artist Chervelle Freyer on background/setting design - worked collaboratively with Specsavers’ in house creative team to reimagine this classic tale. The team used traditional 2D drawn animation techniques and finessed the project using more modern techniques in After Effects.
