Animation: The Ballcocks

From the authors of this animation...

“Hello and welcome. We have come to the Ballcocks to demonstrate the preparations in the case of a nuclear attack...... The Ballcock family are one of many facing the perilous threat of a nuclear attack” It was 1963, the cold war and nuclear threat was brought directly in to the public eye, in the form of an information booklet, advising the Householder on Protection against Nuclear Attack, to tell people how they could survive atomic war. 'Stout shoes', whitewash and warm overcoats were to be the main line of defence against an atomic strike for Britain's civilian population during the Cold War. These ideas, information and images on this leaflet seemed like a really good original idea for a 3d animation/short film.
