Carl and Harry thought they understood the world outside. But now it’s evolving faster than they are.
Their local London pub offers them sanctuary, a pint, and a place to share their confusion.
Welcome to Pint Size Chat.
Pint Size Chat
Pint Size Chat is an animated series combining animation, motion capture, and digital puppetry.
Peter Spence, founder of Putty Studios, has been working with these different creative techniques for over two decades. A wide variety of award-winning productions have kept his studio busy, and a willingness to continually evolve the tools used has meant that Putty Studio continues to be at the forefront of the industry.
“It’s everything that we love about the English pub and its local characters, in a fly-on-the-wall, short-format comedy show.”

“One of the big challenges has been developing an efficient production pipeline for the required animation and motion capture” explains Peter. “It’s a show that I started planning many years ago before the technology was developed, but I could see that it was nearly possible. It’s been like following an incomplete treasure map, that revealed itself in sections as the journey progressed.”
“Using the latest technical innovations within a solid production pipeline allows us to create a visually rich, fantastic quality show at record speed.”
Recent advances in motion capture technology meant that he could finally move forward in to the final stages of production.
Having developed and built additional software and hardware, Putty Studios now has a complete tool set to deliver high quality animated productions in a fraction of the time that it would traditionally take.
Pint Size Chat is being released at regular intervals across all the usual social media platforms.
