Welcome to Darkside!
Breaking News: Darkside is proud to have completed over 140 shots for the BBC’s new 3 part flagship show Origins of Us. This involved us taking hand-drawn illustrations of our ancestors and converting them to a 3D model enabling the pictures to be partially rotated and viewed with depth. We also created fully tracked and integrated 2D graphics that highlight the points being made by presenter Dr Alice Roberts. We would like to thank the “Origins” team for allowing us to be a part of this amazing show.
The Summer of 2011 has proven to be the busiest we have ever had at Darkside working with the BBC on Origins of Us and Horizon – The Core, where the unique styles and designs of the shows were created entirely in-house, alongside titles for WAG TV’s Life on the Line, graphics for The Americas Cup and several new animations for Network Rail and JP Morgan. We have recently begun working with new clients such as Ogilvy & Mather and Al Jazeera creating titles for Earthrise, along with sponsorship adverts for Channel 5′s Big Brother and some future technology development work for Channel 4. Darkside were also lucky enough to work with Visa on part of their 2012 Olympics campaign.
2011 saw the launch of both of our “Augmented Reality” and “Gaming” divisions, which are now up and running with Darkside Interactive and Darkside Digital both fully funded for their first productions. Indeed our first game MOOPS is going so well that we have just started development of our second.
Finally, in a world where recession has been looming large over our industry we feel extremely fortunate to have worked through the worst of it. We believe this is due to always offering exceptional value for money and always delivering on time. So in a world where budgets are lowering and standards still need to be maintained we will try to find a solution that fits your graphic requirements, large or small. So why not give us a call!
For all the repeat work, we must say a huge ‘THANK YOU’ to our loyal client base, whom we love working with and who inspire us every day with the great jobs they bring us.
