Kiss My Pixel were commissioned to produce the entire series branding, this included: the opening titles sequence, taste graphics, journal entries and the end credits sequence. The graphics needed to fit seamlessly into the overall festive aesthetic of the programme, using sophisticated methods to integrate them in a believable and natural way. The programme's titles, taste and journal graphics feature a mixture of parallax, 3D/2D tracking and live action footage using custom product labels, packages and motion tracked journal entries.† Shot on a 5D and a C300, using 'clean' journal pages on set, Kiss My Pixel added the programme's recipe detail and journal decoration in post, creating an easily adjusted and flexible production workflow. †
It was important to give this program an identity of its own, while still continuing with the series ethos and adding that Christmassy feel!
