Following the success of our Grand National Opening Film, we were thrilled to win another commission from Channel 4 to produce the Opening Film for their superb coverage of the F1 British Grand Prix 2016. Built upon the vision of a living breathing graphic novel, our concept was a stylized interpretation of the story of the British Grand Prix; from its heroic beginnings into an unbelievably sophisticated Formula One event.

Hero drivers take us through the decades on a fictional lap of the track from the 1950’s up to Lewis Hamilton’s win in 2015. Set against a backdrop of bold, cool graphics and with a roaring soundscape of commentary and evolving engine sounds, the result was a visceral, dynamic Opener that built excitement for 2016 race.

For contractual reasons, we are unable to display this film on our website. However, if you would like to view it, please get in touch.
