Financial Times _ Director’s Cut

Financial Times collaborated with Verbalisation and The Mill to create a flowing silhouette promoting their Sunday culture supplement.

Working closely with director Chris Turner from Hungryman, The Mill created a design which uses a ballet dancer as a window to see into each of the themed supplements of the Financial Times' Sunday paper; Arts & Culture, Wine & Food, Art, Travel and Lifestyle. The After Effects team worked closely to composite the shots, working out the intrinsic detail within each of the dancer's poses, finding framing which complimented the shapes she made with the live action footage.

NOTE: I created a version for myself which is an earlier and more abstract concept, differing from the offical TVC and Cinema release versions.
