OneHope Rescued App

OneHope needed an animated character named Arieli to read digital versions of 10 stories from their print book “Rescued”.

Timbuktoons developed a character, cast and recorded dialogue, produced storyboards, rough and final animation for all 10 stories for the new kids app.

Timbuktoons also worked directly with the development company to identify ideal delivery formats and to ensure that a smooth delivery and animation integration process was achieved.

We worked with OneHope to create Arieli- the narrator for their Rescued app.


  • limited budget
  • coordination with client and development company
  • making the character animation appealing but not distracting from the main story


  • identified key shots and reusable cycles to put most effort into
  • delivered rough animation quickly for development testing
  • developed an art style that was different but did not compete with key art

Services: Visual development, asset creation, character rigging, 2D animation production

Software: Flash

Todd Hampson and the gang at Timbuktoons are awesome! Very professional, and very creative! We keep coming back again and again!
