Gary Redford - Playground TV
We are thrilled to share Gary Redford’s most recent work, created for the illustrated title sequence for the new, hotly anticipated, adaptation of All Creatures Great and Small now airing on Channel 5. The remake has been released to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the original publication of the much loved books by James Herriot.
Gary collaborated with the fabulous team at HelloYes to bring the stunning scenery of the Yorkshire Dales, along with the fictional village of Darrowby to life in his beautiful, contemporary yet timeless style.
Talking of his work on the project, Gary said "This was a dream project to work on. Ben and Ed at HelloYes were inspirational with their direction and did such a magical job bringing the scenes to life with their animation. I was provided with location stills from the production company and did plenty of research myself into vintage travel posters of the Yorkshire Dales to get the right look and feel - down to the rugged construction of the dry stone walls. I was given creative freedom to compose each scene as a standalone illustration, but the images also had to blend well for the animation, so I used long gentle curves to guide the eye through each scene, mirroring the undulations of the landscape as you follow the journey of James’ car.”
