British Style Genius

Recently at BDH, myself and the very clever and splendid Orla Handley made the titles for the up coming BBC series “British Style Genius“. The first episode of which goes out 21:00hrs, 7th October on BBC TWO (that’s in the UK only as far as I know).

Handley did the designing, editing, crazy-bonkers stop frame animation etc. I made CGI threads, worked out how to fit them with the stop frame, some compositing, a bit of camera holding, frowning, pointing, and occasional fetching stuff.

After the initial building of the sequence Handley went on to produce five separate colorways, to match the style of each episode of the series, which all deal with different sections of British fashion history.

This means everyone must watch all five episodes to fully appreciate the total awesomeness of this title sequence.
