Dancing on the Edge

Designer/Animator: David Wilder   |   Producer: Mike Huddleston

- Introduction -

Not every project has the budget or schedule of Downton Abbey which provides a lot of oppurtunties to have some fun with design.

"Dancing on the Edge details the rise of the Louis Lester Band, a black jazz band in 1930s London led by Louis Lester." Harkening back to the jazz era, I wanted the design to evoke the feeling of being on stage with the spotlight in your eyes. This project had a very small budget, just enough for the edit and audio so there was no chance to bring in one of our trusted design agencies. I designed & animated all the graphics as well as the show's logo at the end of the spot.
