BBC Radio Scotland — Romance | 1995

D&AD Silver Award for best use of typography in a TV advertising campaign

Director: Barnbrook | Agency: Faulds | Animation: John Hollis

One of three films commissioned for BBC scotland advertising their spoken word radio station. We were given real soundbites and simply asked to animate ‘something’ along to them.┬áThis one was created in a basic online edit. A rough storyboard was agreed before we went in and then it was created spontaneously using laserprints grabbed using a video camera. The audio is a man talking about why his spirit is lifted when he goes to look at the sea. We tried to express the spiritually of the words being spoken and used various pieces of custom lettering and our own fonts to create the atmosphere of the piece.
