CSI: From The Beginning

Client: Virgin Media

Role: Image manipulation, animation, editing.

Directed by James Adamson for Virgin Media TV.

Nominated for three PROMAX awards

Living TV’s CSI strand showed every episode of the cult crime series, from the beginning of season one. To express this theme, we constructed the life story of central character Grissom, going back to the childhood influences that would lead to a life “dedicated to the dead”.

Carefully selected library stills were subtly graded and altered to create the eerie atmosphere of the promo. A deliberately restrained animation style also conveys the sombre mood.
