Taggerz is a new animated drama from BBC 1Xtra, following the lives of a crew of graffiti artists. It’s carried on the 1Xtra website, and wrapped neatly into on-air too.
One of the most interesting aspects for me is that we managed to get the download rights to the tunes as mp3s (from 1xtra-affiliated artists like Skitz, Panjabi Hit Squad etc) but even better, put many of the basic components of the animated series up there for you to download and reassemble. That’s the backgrounds, flash files etc. You can grab em, rebuild things, and send them back to 1xtra – who will do, er, as yet unspecified things with them. But I’m really pleased we’ve been able to get this far, in terms of letting people pull the media apart, component by component, in remixable form.
Major props to Dan Heaf and Jamie Cason, as well as everyone else who helped on it and worked it. You need to sign in to use it, due to some of the content, but once you’re in, head over to the ‘Downloads’ section.
