It was requested that we keep the concept in a traditional vein, and to date it has just been footage of the Royal Standard flag used in the opening to Her Majesty's speech. It was to this end that we developed a 3D solution to mimic the flag both in texture and movement to give a simple, fluid composition as a title intro to coverage of the Christmas message.
As Lead designer I completed the Concept, Typography & Compositing, under direction from John Bennett, Executive Producer.
