Nigel Slaters Simple Suppers.
Nigel Slater demonstrates straightforward, down to earth cooking, filmed at his home, vege-patch and on friends' allotments. Each programme takes us through a week's worth of ‘Simple Suppers’.
Kiss My Pixel were commissioned to produce the graphics, effects, brand and series styling for this pioneering BBC1 series. Kiss My Pixel shot on RED, with motion control, 4K, high-speed and steady-cam to produce some of the highly stylized shots seen within the programme. “Multipass” motion control titles were shot to provide special effect shots for the opening sequence, This shoot also provided content for the many stings and transitions seen within the body of the series.
“Days of the week” were integrated into the sequences, fully editable and digitally tracked on to 4K footage to allow maximum control and flexibility with the series content; eg the oven interface could say “Tuesday” one minute and Friday the next. Handwritten labels and recipes were later tracked on to jars and clean notebooks allowing for flexibility within the editorial workflow.
