Nigel Slater's Dish of the Day.
Returning for a new series, cook Nigel Slater shows how, with a bit of culinary creativity, he turns the contents of his weekly shop into seven delicious dishes - one for every day of the week.
Kiss My Pixel were commissioned to produce the series branding including; the opening titles sequence, journal entries, shopping montage sequences, days of the week insert graphics and the end credits sequence. As with previous Nigel Slater series, the graphics had to fit seamlessly into the aesthetic of the program. The titles and journal graphics feature a mixture of parallax, 3D/2D tracking and live action footage using bespoke packages, product labels and handwritten journal entries as a vehicle for graphic communication and recipe information. Shot on a 5D and a C300, using 'clean' journal pages on set, Kiss My Pixel added the recipe detail and journal decoration in post, helping to create a very flexible production workflow.
Kiss My Pixel also shot a shopping montage time lapse sequence for each programme, using multiple cameras to reveal each weeks shop being used.
It was important to give this program an identity of its own, while still continuing with the series and Nigel's ethos.
