In celebration of Queen Elizabeth's 94th birthday ITV commissioned BBC Studios to make a 60 min documentary that reveals Princess Elizabeth's extraordinary teenage life during the Second World War years. Working with animator Andy A'Court, Chris Mitchell was briefed to created a series of vintage poster style vector illustrations suitable for Andy to add texture effects and animate. The documentary 'Our Queen at War' showed rare film footage montaged with the short animations, providing a seamless theme introduction to the key topics of interest. In this particular illustrative frame, the young Princess' had a jam jar hidden under the bed full of nasty things for their teddy called Hitler to eat.
