Watch with Nexus

03 November 2010

Nexus Productions' Clemens Habicht produced four stunning idents through creative agency Harriman Steel, as part of their rebrand of UKTV's Watch channel (click on pic below to view).

The idents have the strapline Watch together so each shows an everyday scenario where things are better shared (a picnic, a night out, a night in, a café). They were created using Japanese black theatre techniques where puppeteers swathed in black move people and objects around the scene.

It was filmed entirely in reverse as a single take on steadicam, with all effects achieved in camera.  Using varying shutter speeds, the film was then played back at 25 fps, to slow things down and create the magical, floating effect.  Black costumed people (later graded so that they would disappear from view) created the storm of things and people arriving in the scenes.
