The famous League of Gentlemen road signs that we all recognise from the original series broadcast in the 1990s, had to be redesigned for the 2017 special. Acme were asked to make sure they were as close to the original as possible.

Amazing Drone photo montage for The Detectorists

A blend of 100 photos taken by a Drone in Suffolk were photoshopped together to create a seamless birds eye view landscape. It was a tricky job to remove the buildings, vehicles and unwanted details, so that the camera could start as a printed action prop held by a property developer and end as an overhead shot of Mackenzie Crook and Toby Jones metal detecting in a field.

The sequence starts as a printed prop, it is unrolled to view the area that the Detectorists are standing in. The camera zooms in, each stage of that zoom had to be created and seamlessly patched together, as the camera shot get closer – the viewer recognises that it is the stars of the show. You would never know it started as 100 photos taken by a drone!

Acme Graphics Animation for League of Gentlemen

Acme Graphics specialise in creating animations for use on prop laptops, desktop computers, tablets and mobile phones. We have created many variations as per scripts from art departments from TV & Film.

This clip shows Les Mcqueen, played by Mark Gatiss from the fictitious band Creme Brulee in League of Gentlemen. He was Googling himself and Acme Graphics created the whole sequence as an animation so that the Actor has both control over the movements or they can be programmed in taking the stress away from the actor and the prop man controls the action for the director off camera.
