On Saturday our latest crop of graphic props were showcased on ‘Inside No.9’s’ live Halloween special. The award winning series famed for it’s dark humour, produced a unique episode full of surprising twists and thrills.
The episode begins with Pemberton’s character returning home to Flat No.9. A number of Acme props and graphics were used in this sequence including all of the food packaging. Bread packaging is often a prop that art directors are wary of using; however we have mastered the art of creating a realistic prop that would not look out of place at your local supermarket.
Along with all the food packaging we made a number of signs; everything from the brushed aluminium signage, to the large vinyl lettering.
The change in weather has provided us with the perfect excuse to sit back, stay inside and watch all of the recent TV series that we have worked on. One of our latest TV series The Innocents centres around around two love stuck teenagers Harry and June, so – unsurprisingly – popular social media apps are pivotal within the plot. We don’t want to give too much away, however episode fours cliffhanger ending features the use of a phone and computer sequence designed by Acme Graphics.
Shared View is a bespoke, interactive animated sequence inspired by YouTube designed in house by our team of graphic designers. We created all the fundamentals from scratch, everything from the logo to the avatars. The animated sequence is based on the detailed action from the script and timed so that it is easy for the actors to use, communicating via the ‘youtube’ style social media app on smart phone and desktop computer platforms and more.
