Finger Family Video

Finger Family, Finger Family where are you?

Daddy Finger, Mommy Finger and Baby Finger – they’re all here in this new take on the classic kids’ favorite.

As usual, when we begin the creative process of bringing a nursery rhyme to life we research it’s background.

Unlike many nursery rhymes, Finger Family does not seem to have a long history. The earliest reference to it seems to be from 2007 when a version was first uploaded to YouTube.

Being young has not detracted from it’s popularity however. There are hundreds of versions of the song on YouTube now so we had our work cut out to come up with something original.

We decided to make Huggy the star of our Finger Family episode and have him use his telescope to spot members of the family from afar as part of a hide and seek game.

To set us apart from the other versions of Finger Family YouTube we decided to create a huge hand as the focus of the action.

The hand is actually a climbing frame and you’ll see the characters climb to the top of the fingers and wave when it’s their turn to be mentioned in the lyrics.

During the interlude between verses we introduced an abstract and dreamlike sequence where the characters are seen jump from step to step against a background of stars.

We made this section colorful as we know kids, especially very young ones, love to see movement and color.

We hope you enjoy this episode and look forward to reading your comments on YouTube.
