Nigel Slaters Christmas Suppers.
Following the success of the first two series of Nigel Slater's Simple Suppers is this festive two part special. Over the two programmes, Nigel prepares in each, a week's worth of sumptuous dishes from seasonal produce that will delight and brighten any winter table. Nigel also tidies his garden and plans for the growing season ahead as his thoughts turn to the food his garden will provide in the coming year.
Complimenting some of the material shot for the main series; which was shot on RED, with motion control, 4K, high-speed and steady-cam to produce some of the highly stylized shots seen within the programme. New festive titles were cut and graded, alongside new seasonal ‘set ups’; which also provided content for the many stings and transitions seen within the body of the two specials.
Bespoke “Days of the weeks” were integrated into the sequences, fully editable and digitally tracked on to 4K footage to allow maximum control and flexibility with the series content; so that the oven interface could say “Tuesday” one minute and Friday the next. All the recipes and menu sections where introduced and re-capped in the same integrated subtle way, so that the whole graphics package became part of the programmes narrative.
Festive bespoke credits were produced to compliment the unique series style, and remind viewers that graphic design, as with Nigel’s ethos can be elegant and considered without detracting from good taste.
