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

Director: Barnbrook | Agency: Faulds | Animation: Barnbrook

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. along to them. This animation was generated by drawing and lettering directly on found footage. This was also mixed with stuff we had filmed ourselves. We had no idea how the final animation would look until it was finished and projected. The conversation is between two men discussing the Scottish dialect phrase ‘foggie bummer’.
