Market Kitchen

New Year, new broadcast commercial. Just before Christmas I completed another directing job with Tandem Films, this time a spot for the BBC. Not that the BBC have commercials - oh no.

The piece is for the food show Market Kitchen, and consists of a single 30 second shot in which we pass from Spring through to Winter. We used stop-motion animation to play with the idea of 'simulated' time-lapse photography, but at the same time, broke away from the confines of linear time to create a nonsensical, magical depiction of the passing of seasons.

If it's not broadcasting already, it should be running on BBC digital and cable channels withing the month, and then throughout the rest of the year. More details as they come
