The Grumpy Pizza for CITV’s Share a Story

Share a Story is a popular children’s competition run every year on TV channel CITV. Children are asked to write a story and create a storyboard to show how they would like it to become an animation for television. From the hundreds of entries eight finalists are chosen, then CITV ask several different animation companies to bring them to life for TV.

For 2013 Bottletop animated Jay Jackson’s tale of The Grumpy Pizza who needs to find a creative way of offsetting his heating bills.

Bottletop was part of the BAFTA winning CITV Share a Story production team for 2012, 2013 and again in 2014.
