Countryman (1982)
Produced by: Chris Backwell (Island)

As well as the front and end titles for Countryman, producer Chris Blackwell asked us to film an ident utilising an exquisite 'Island Records' diamond brooch that he had specially comisioned for his wife after the initial success of his music label. Amidst tight security at the Bateman Street studio, we shot this motion control move to create a stylised 'bling' version of his famous Island logo.

For the front titles, we were asked to give the Countryman card a crude but crafted feel as if it were made from driftwood.
