About Project

Melvyn Bragg retells the fascinating stories of life in Britain from 1900 to 1970 through the archive collections of the British Film Institute and other National and Regional Film Archives.

How it was made – The grass and tree textured globe was built, animated and lit in Cinema 4D where the rotoscoped archive footage carefully made in After Effects was seamlessly looped and incorporated into the scene. Multiple render passes were then brought back into After Effects where the sky backgrounds, additional lighting effects and other animated elements were added. The whole sequence was combined with images of The Mobile Cinema which was shot on DSLR and treated, and end title animated before the final edit to the music score.

Aside from the Title Sequence, DazPix also created a fully 3d animated timeline of the decades, straps, stings, and wipes for the 20 part series.
