In Uncategorized by gusandbarn / 27/04/2015 / 0 Comments

LAST NIGHT WE RECEIVED THE NEWS THAT WE’D WON A BAFTA FOR OUR BBC WINTER OLYMPICS CAMPAIGN. WE TOOK IT FOR TV CRAFT: TITLES AND GRAPHIC IDENTITY.

SUFFICE TO SAY, WE WERE GOBSMACKED AND BOTH INCREDIBLY PROUD OF EVERYONE WHO HELPED US CREATE THE CAMPAIGN.

BIG SHOUTS GO TO OUR DIRECTOR TOMEK BAGINSKI AND HIS ENTIRE ARMY OF ART DIRECTORS, ANIMATORS AND FX PEOPLE OVER IN POLAND, TO FACTORY STUDIOS AND TRO MUSIC FOR CREATING SUCH AN EPIC SOUNDSCAPE AND TO THE TEAMS AT RKCR/Y&R AND REDBEE WHO FOUGHT WITH US TO MAKE IT GREAT.

THIS IS ONE TO REMEMBER!

TODAY WE HAD A LETTER DELIVERED FROM ST CUTHBERT & THE FIRST MARTYR’S SCHOOL IN BRADFORD (READ BELOW).

THE KIDS HAD WRITTEN SOME OF THEIR OWN POEMS IN THE STYLE OF OUR WINTERS OLYMPICS TRAILER. SOME OF THEM HAVE GOT A BRIGHT FUTURE AS WRITERS AHEAD OF THEM.

OUR PARTICULAR FAVOURITE LINE WAS “I WILL SLICE YOUR NECK OPEN WITH A DAGGER OF ICE”. LOVELY.
