Early 2013 saw DWA provide animation for Magnum Media's panel show Duck Quacks Don't Echo, scheduled for transmission in early 2014 on Sky One. In the programme, the guests are asked to present an amazing fact or trick with some basis in science, very often requiring an animated explanation (courtesy of DWA).

The programme format was sold overseas later in the year, so following this, the producers of the US version of the show contacted Dave to create bespoke animation for the American Duck Quacks Don't Echo. He directed the animation for both US and UK editions, with Jimeno Farfan providing half of the animation for the British version.
