8 O’CLOCK FUN
UKTV approached us with this fun script to promote their 8 o’clock segment on the Gold channel.
We’re big comedy fans here at Ink and Giants, so we were more than happy to bring it to life!
Greats at eight won two promax gold awards:
Best use of design
Best originated entertainment promo
The idea is to show number 8, the hero of the hour, in all the situations mentioned in voice over. 8 also had to act out selected scenes as characters from the shows we were promoting; shows such as Only fools and horses, Porridge, Blackadder, and Open all hours. See if you can spot all of them in the video below!
BOARDS AND SKETCHES
We enjoyed the storyboarding and character development stage almost as much as the actual production itself so we’d like to share with you some of our early sketches and styleframes!
