BBC Cycling Titles (Making of)

BBC Sport asked GeeFX Studios to design and produce a title sequence for the new BBC Cycling coverage inspired by the paintings of artist/author Jan Pienkowski.


Working alongside GeeFX's Creative Director, Graham Clarkin, ​I ​designed various ​concept ​visuals to give ​the producers at​ BBC​ Sport​ a ​clear ​idea of ​the type of visuals we could create for cycling with these great paintings as inspiration.



The Producers​ really​ liked the visuals​, and so our next step was ​creating​ an animatic ​to get ​the timings right for each of the transitions. We also needed animation that would easily clarify each cycling event. Velodrome: Mountain: BMX and Road. Here's the animatic in sequence....



BBC Sport ​loved the timings and ​animation ​ideas. I moved onto animate each cyclist while Sean Womersley created wonderful painted backgrounds. I had to create each cyclist silhouette and build them so they could be easily animated and posed in different positions.


Top Left: Mountain     Top Right: BMX      Lower Left: Road      Lower Right: Velodrome

Finally it was a case of compositing everything together using the animatic as a guide and building each scene. A​fter seeing the final animation there was a great reaction from the producers​ at BBC Sport​.

An Epic story about not just any chicken, a ThunderChicken!!!
ThunderChicken has one crazy-ass night out with his partner in crime, D-Dog. It's adventures of the blurred-times when these two get together in this 1981 classic that has been restored from VHS for you to now enjoy!

Recommended for the mature viewer as this cartoon features violence, drug use and pretty graphic sex references. You have been warned. NSFW!!!
