We work on a diverse range of jobs here at Acme; anything from a vintage prop cigarette case for a period drama to a crest for an international campaign. Our recent graphic props for the latest Urban Myths episode – aired on Sky Arts – has to be one of our favourites. ‘Urban Myths: Sex Pistols vs. Bill Grandy’ tells the reimagined story behind The Sex Pistols’ infamous appearance on Bill Grundy’s show in 1976.
We recreated a variety of graphics, one being the 3D patterned flats seen in the studio background of the notorious interview. We created the vector graphics that were then used by a CNC router, this created an almost identical replica of the original. In addition to creating signage and logo’s we also recreated posters and newspapers using original archived imagery.
Acme Graphics have a massive library of poster artwork suitable for various settings and scenarios. We are often asked to provide posters that have generic artwork created by Acme, all we ask is for production to get any names used on the artwork cleared. This enables the production to get original artwork at a fraction of the price.
Acme were asked to research and create authentic boxing posters featuring Paddy Considine as the hero who is injured and the film follows the powerful story of an injured boxer in his prime and how it effects his family.
In the latest Black and white filmed Sainsburys commercial, you can see Acme Graphics posters from stock library. Acme has a wide range of posters to dress any set. We also provided generic paint tin for the character action prop.
Acme Graphics were asked to step into history with Mcdonald’s Big Mac. There were some retro Rockabilly Gig posters posters in the background while Rockabilly’s eat Big Mac’s. See our fictitious bands Blakey and The Heys posters in these stills from the commercial.
