We could not be more thrilled to announce that Factory Fifteen’s BBC Olympic Trail won a BAFTA last night in the Titles & Graphic Identity category. A massive congratulations to Paul, Jono, Kibwe, Fantasista and the talented team who worked on the film. Special thanks to The Mill for their VFX work and the BBC for such an enjoyable collaboration.
The celebratory visual feast for the BBC’s 2020 Tokyo Olympics’ trail was directed by Factory Fifteen with original artwork from fellow Nexus Studios’ Director, Fantasista Utamaro. The epic spot takes audiences on a whistle-stop tour through the idiosyncratic and exciting megacity by reimagining Tokyo with Olympic athletes and events embedded into its fabric and culture. Street signs, shops, arcades, gashapon parlours and homes are all authentically augmented with sports and their stars thrust centre-stage.
