Sky Arts Urban Myth series includes a comedy based on the infamous scene with the Sex Pistols on Bill Grundy’s nightly show. The incident actually ended Grundy’s show but the memory lives on. Acme re-created various elements of that time for the production. Acme recreated NME Magazine, The Sun with the Sex Pistols headline featuring the young actors playing the Sex Pistols and Steve Pemberton playing Bill Grundy.
Period Props for dramas and documentaries are recreated so that the graphics look new rather than vintage pieces on set.
Acme Graphics are prop making licence plates and we have a range of techniques using vinyl and foamex. Here are some vintage plate styles. The fonts were created from vintage reference and cut from stainless steel vinyl.
Newspapers have changed in size and design over the last year and Acme have kept up to date with new 2017 layouts. Here are a selection of Acme made newspapers with cleared images from Acme Library – ready for your scripted articles/headlines for Hero Props
We also have newspaper designs on file, ranging from 1900 throughout 20th & 21st Century to 2017 for any period film requirement.
Robbie Williams and Ayda Field play a prank on the public with Ant and Dec on Saturday Night Takeaway. Robbie has a new pub and Acme was asked to create Pub Signs and Beer Pump Tags to make the prank more authentic until Robbie see’s the jokes are on him.
We were challenged by the request to design, print and make a large Medieval style religious book for Todd Margaret series 3.
The dimensions had to be 15 inches high, 12 inches wide and 4 inches deep, far larger than any production print book to wrap around.
We bought a few large atlases and guillotined down the pages to a uniform size and bound them together. Printing our design onto parchment paper, with a blue leather cover and gold vinyl produced surprising results:
Gold spray paint on the page edges finished off the effect with a thin dividing ribbon.
