VIDEO MARKETING BENEFITS

Studio promotional film

Client:
Billy Hanshaw Studio
Project type:

Promotional film

This is our version of those lengthy films that extol the virtues of video marketing through endless soundbites and animated infographics. Our idea centres around getting the message across very quickly via visual metaphor and end user benefit only – key attributes we try to apply to all of our work.

Visually, we used very on-trend aesthetics to support the script, allowing for more freedom to explore abstract visual narratives.

Doctor Who

DOCTOR WHO SERIES 8 & 9

Main title design

Client:
BBC CYMRU
BBC Worldwide
Project type:
Main Title Design
Awards:
Royal Television Society
Nomination

Departing from a well-established theme of the TARDIS tumbling through a wormhole at the speed of light, we opted for a more visually rich and metaphor laden sequence.

The final result enabled the BBC to increase Doctor Who’s portfolio of brand properties. Cogwheels and spiralling clocks have now become synonymous with the overall brand presence, both on and off screen.

For a more in-depth look at our journey through time and space, have a look at our blog.

“the only truly new idea I’ve seen since the very original”

Steven Moffat – Doctor Who Executive Producer and Showrunner

“incredibly collaborative and creative”

Nerys Davies, Post Production Supervisor – Doctor Who Series 5,6,7,8, & 9

The Last Kingdom

THE LAST KINGDOM

Main titles design and show branding

Client:
Carnival Films / BBC America
Project type:
Main titles / unsolicited pitch

Placeholder soundbed:
Vangelis Dedes – Persian Warlord

This was a pre-production pitch idea sent to Carnival films and BBC America for their upcoming Anglo Viking epic in 2015. Unsolicited, we created the work to catch the attention of the producers. The storyboard cast list is pure fantasy with the exclusion of Alexander Dreymon; the only confirmed cast member at the time of delivery.

We included type suggestions, and various logo treatments. It formed part of a larger proposal, including show branding and full concept storyboard, accompanied by the animated logo reveal shown directly below.

We recently caught up with Nick Murphy (The show’s Executive Producer) who hadn’t seen our proposal; often the case with unsolicited material, but he called our work “impressive”.

“Slick and well-judged”

Nick Murphy – Executive Producer, The Last Kingdom

Bayer Insecticide

BAYER INSECTICIDE CAMPAIGN

Illustration for ad campaign and exhibition use

Client:
Bayer
Agency:
Palmer Hargreaves
Project type:
Illustration

The brief, in essence, was very simple. The client was in possession of one version of an illustration prepared some time ago for them of an androgynous cyborg. We were asked to recreate it, together with a lab style environment. Fully rigged, the final sculpt can be repurposed for future use. The mood boards we were presented with displayed hi-tech “Tron” style images. An important part of the illustration would be an interface design with an aphid at its centre.  We looked to H.U.D designs for inspiration.

We produced a more shapely, female cyborg, early on in the design process.
Even though it is affectionately called Rita – the androgynous version that appeared in the final illustration was the preferred route.

Genting Poker

GENTING CASINOS & CLUBS: POKER

Screen interstitial

Client:
Genting Casinos
Agency:
Banana Kick, Leeds
Project type:
Casino screen interstitial

Genting had been presented with a design route which was a development of some of their existing brand properties (bottom-right image). Our brief was to evolve the concept, build and animate. The resulting sequence has a much narrower colour pallet than the neon colours suggested by the initial designs.

Playing card suit icons are written as if by light evoking a sense of excitement and prestige associated with the casino environment. This is a revised and edited version of the final piece created for Banana Kick.
