It's A Sin

It's A Sin
Channel 4

JAMVFX teamed up with 4creative on the social campaign for the hotly anticipated new 5-part series ‘Its a Sin’, from BAFTA-winning writer Russell T Davies.

The ‘fly posters’ were the main social focus, bringing to life each of the characters and their personalities in a fun, attention grabbing way.
We transition between each of the cast through them ‘tearing’ their own poster to reveal the next character. Sometimes this is a literal grab and tear, sometimes this is motivated by a quick spin or turn to camera.
To bring the scene to life they feature a hint of the wall and world beyond. Other remnants of torn posters, stickers, graffiti and ambient light fill the scene.
The polaroid assets were crafted like a moving flipbook—polaroids stack up on each other, creating the illusion of movement with an 80’s vibe, as we cycle through introducing each of the characters.

It’s A Sin follows the story of the 1980s, the story of AIDS, and charts the joy and heartbreak of a group of friends across a decade in which everything changed.

Olly Alexander leads a cast which also features Keeley Hawes, Stephen Fry, Neil Patrick Harris, Tracy Ann Oberman, Shaun Dooley, Omari Douglas, Callum Scott Howells, Nathaniel Curtis and Lydia West.

All Creatures Great And Small

All Creatures Great And Small
Channel 5

JAM VFX are thrilled to have been working on the launch of channel 5’s new series of All Creatures Great and Small. JAM VFX was involved in the launch campaign prior to lockdown when a live action shoot was scheduled to capture the Yorkshire Dales along side a small studio shoot with animals.

Obviously lockdown put a stop to most of the live action. So in conjunction with print, The Yorkshire Dales was recreated in a matte painting with stock elements. JAM VFX took the finished print still of the dales and disassembled it to create a projection in NUKE. This projection was then combined with elements from the stills shoot of the cast and animals to create a subtle cinemagraph sequence for outdoor digital installations.

Another series of composites we’re created for the shows on air countdowns. These consisted of the projected print plate and some live action plates of animals which were shot in a studio just before lockdown.
These were then graded and composited together to create the finished countdowns.

All work was finished seamlessly with the JAM VFX remote team, who are looking forward to the shows launch this September.

ABOUT

We completed this beautiful spot for ITV Creative promoting their ‘ITV Magazine’. We created the entire piece in CG paying particular attention to the dynamics of the magnifying glass installation. We took our main inspiration from the movement and construction of the ‘Orrery’ mechanical devices.

The spot has been built to be customisable so the content can be changed in the glass for each issue. This New Year’s issue highlights what goes on behind the scenes on some of ITV’s biggest shows and the magnifying glass refers to the fascinating in-depth detail you will find in each publication.
