This is a two minute extract of Secrets of Brain Health presentation at We The Curious Digital Dome, 2nd July2018.
At BDH we worked with scientists at Clinical Research and Imaging Centre the University of Bristol, taking the raw data from 3D volume MRI brain scans and, using MEL scripting and Maya turning it into usable, but accurate models of thought patterns and brain activity that could then be treated and rendered in Maya and Cinema 4D to create these visualisations.
Earth: One Amazing Day, which we at BDH Creative worked on with BASE FX in Beijing, is currently available on the BBC iPlayer, and will be until around the 16th July 2018.
From the BDH website:
“Earth: One Amazing Day showcases the remarkable stories that happen on earth, our home, each and every day, driven by the power of the Sun. It takes audiences on a breath-taking and immersive voyage across the continents, through the oceans and skies as it tracks the sun’s journey…all in a single amazing day.”
We got individual credits so it got added to our IMDB page which is always 👌.
This time last week we were in London to see if we had won the BAFTA for Best Titles and Graphic Identity for our work on Blue Planet 2.
Although we didn’t come away with the main prize we did get to see the great and the good, hang out in a pub with hare heads on the wall, see our friends and colleagues win their awards, drink complementary champagne and generally have an excellent time.
Fingers crossed we get to do it again at some point in the future.
🎉 👌 🥇
Yesterday BBC Earth released the “Prequel” for the forthcoming Blue Planet 2. It features the title sequence we have been working on at BDH.
Radiohead rerecorded their track “Bloom” (originally written about the first series of Blue Planet) with series composer Hans Zimmer especially for the occasion.
Here is Radiohead performing Bloom live back in 2011.
At BDH we made some pretty delicious graphics for this series on the chemistry of food.
Michael Mosley and James Wong reveal the physics, chemistry and biology hidden inside our food. They travel the world in a culinary adventure to search for the origins of our favourite foods and using specialist photography and CGI, they take us on a journey inside the most sumptuous food, right down to the molecular level.
You can see a promo here featuring some of the work we did.
Watch out for the tongue and tastebud sequences ;-).
9pm Friday 24th February (This evening) BBC2.
You can see the full list of nominees here.
Excellent work and congratulations to the rest of Team BDH. The final result was a perfect blend of many peoples work, modelling, rigging, sculpting, rendering, lighting and compositing with the BDH signature analogue elements.
Fingers crossed for the 28th.
(You know, it’s the one with all the babies.)
