bbc world cup "the tapestry" directed by Nicos Livesey at Blinkink
Made in collaboration with BBC Creative, ‘The Tapestry’ is the launch film for the BBC’s 2018 FIFA World cup marketing campaign. Working with The London Embroidery Studio, the team have modernised a traditional tapestry technique by creating a dynamic film in which every single frame has been individually embroidered, creating over 600 unique tapestries.
Blending embroidery expertise and digitising skills, the film vibrantly showcases a wealth of colour palettes and gradients, alternating thread textures and unique stitch patterns. This intricately animated work looks to the past and future, journeying through World Cup history, and previewing the most exciting talent coming up at this year’s finals.

Bbc christmas "The supporting act" directed by Elliot Dear at Blinkink
Elliot’s Christmas fIlm for BBC One shows his ability to take a simple story and turn it into something truly magical.
The characters were animated using stop-motion but the facial expressions were created and mapped on the puppets using CGI to bring them to life. The dance routine was choreographed first in live action and then an expert team of Blinkink animators recreated the moves one painstaking frame at a time.
This relatable story of a young girl preparing for the biggest performance of her life will have you wiping your eyes (and tapping your feet).

John Lewis "The Bear & The Hare" directed by Elliot Dear at Blinkink
A one-of-a-kind transatlantic collaboration between Elliot and Yves Geleyn, the Bear and The Hare has become one of the best loved Christmas commercials of recent years. Created by placing 2d cutouts of the characters into real sets and then animating in-camera, this groundbreaking film used techniques that hadn’t ever been tried on this scale. The results are breathtaking; Aaron Blaise’s (The Lion King, Pocahontas) character designs spring to life under Elliot’s direction. A film to warm even the coldest heart.
