Re-tracing the night before in Benidorm

We were asked to create a wall of information as the character, Pauline in Benidorm tries to trace steps to help trigger a memory of who she had spent the night with. The wall follows her journey using graphic mockups of fictional on-line Facebook profiles, emails, bank accounts and general lifestyle paperwork and photos, as she re- traces her steps across a notice board.

Antony Cartlidge is the designer of Benidorm Series 6, who asked us to create varied graphics in addition to this notice board  and take it to Spain for the shoot.

General every day paper work can be created to dress various domestic settings. Domestic utility bills, bank statements, Takeaway menus, Workout timetables, football training schedules, school certificates, recycling bins notices, newspaper clippings, tickets and business cards can fill a background to create authenticity of a domestic setting creating more authentic set dressing.

Acme Activity in August (graphic prop work update)

August is generally a busy month in the world of film and television, as many productions schedule location shooting over the summer, hoping for good weather.

So no surprises that we have been busy creating quite a few prop graphics for the second series of a successful TV police drama set on south cost of England, however we can not divulge any specific details as its all very hush, hush, as production understandably do not want any details to leak out.

Our tasks have mainly been to design newspapers and website pages that are central to the narrative, so no images available yet.

One very interesting project was to provide illustration and design for a 1950s style book cover for a KFC commercial, its always fun to work on period graphics.

Other jobs passing through the Acme Towers studios include the second series of The Job Lot, visual for a Littlewoods advert, a charity job for St John’s Ambulance among others.

So while some have been soaking up the sunshine on various beaches around Europe, the Acme team have been nose to the screen, conjuring up a myriad of graphical terats.
