The team at Trunk Animation, commissioned by Sam Pattinson at Treatment Studio, have just finished work on creating two of the 13 projections for the Queens Diamond Jubilee Concert. The two projections which accompanied Madness as they were playing aloft Buckingham Palace, shone out over the 20,000 strong crowd, and were seen by a 17 million viewers.
The ‘Our House’ projection, Directed by Rok Predin and Layla Atkinson, showed Buckingham Palace falling to the floor as though on a stage curtain, revealing rows of terrace houses and council flats which opened up like dolls houses to reveal big jubilee parties inside. Layla created the architecture for the collaged streets which were taken from a multitude of different locations to build the terraces, whilst Sara Savelj worked alongside designing characters. Rok Predin built all the 3D rooms and projected Layla’s terraces onto geometry before creating the dropping motion in C4D. Rok then went on to composite everything together adding detailed effects and grading the overall piece to look fantastic.
‘It Must Be Love’ Directed and designed by Alasdair Brotherston and Jock Mooney, turned the Palace into a colourful romantic setting, adorned with heart shaped hot air balloons, swans, cherubs and even palm trees all forming love hearts, as they emanated from the palace. Their animation started as line drawings scanned and coloured using Photoshop. These were then traced and animated using Flash before being taken into after effects and heavily composited.
