Sherlock Series 2

Towards the end of 2011 we worked with Hartswood Films on their already multi-award winning and BAFTA scooping BBC hit TV drama Sherlock starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as Dr Watson and written by the great Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss.

For Sherlock series 2 we were asked to create a handful of motion graphics and animated elements for both the first episode ‘A Scandal in Belgravia’ and the third episode. These involved some 3D modelling, animation, illustration, graphic design, interface design, live action and even a bit of jewellery making.

For episode 1 ‘A Scandal in Belgravia’, we created a 3D visualisation for one of Sherlock’s problem-solving thought processes. This required making an x-ray style 3D model of a Boeing 747 which peels back to reveal a coded seating plan.

We also created a set of icons to be used in a mobile phone graphic sequence.


Check out some of our work for Episode 3 ‘The Reichenbach Fall’ here. A full case study will follow in a few weeks and be displayed in the TV and Film section of our main website so watch this space.
