Meet Handbird artist Felicity Rogers

In 2005 Handbird Productions was contracted to create some of the main animation sequences for the archeological TV series "What Lies Beneath".

In this eight-part series, Simon Dallow takes viewers on a journey back in time. Along the way he'll debunk myths, solve riddles and shed new light in a mix of contemporary and historic subjects that cover the earliest stages of Maori and Pakeha occupation of New Zealand.
