LoveLove Films produce TV graphics for Channel 5 documentary series The Murder of Charlene Downes produced by VICE

LoveLove Films were pleased to have been commissioned to create TV graphics for the VICE-studios produced documentary series The Murder of Charlene Downes, which aired on Channel 5 for three consecutive nights starting on Tuesday 21st May 2019.

In November 2003, schoolgirl Charlene Downes disappeared from Blackpool after spending the evening in the town centre and on the pier with friends. The 14-year-old has not been seen since and although police believe she was murdered that night, her body has never been found.

The Murder of Charlene Downes is a chilling documentary series produced by VICE which investigates the disappearance and suspected murder of Charlene Downes almost 16 years ago.

Within the series, which started on Tuesday 21st March at 9pm, the filmmakers are given “unprecedented access” to her family and friends, the police, case lawyers and a former suspect.

Channel 5 said in a statement that the series “aims to understand why the investigation into the case failed and tries to unearth new evidence into her disappearance, to find out who may have been responsible.”

At LoveLove Films, we love creating broadcast graphics for a wide array of shows in numerous different genres. Other shows we have created TV graphics for include Channel 4’s SAS: Who Dares Wins, ITV’s easyJet: Inside the Cockpit, Channel 4’s The Super Orgasm, and we also created the entirety of the graphics for the BBC Films feature Williams.

On creating the graphics, LoveLove animator Joe stated: “It was great working on The Murder of Charlene Downes – it’s such a harrowing story but I think VICE handled their telling of it in an interesting and sensitive way that would surely resonate with audiences. For the show, we created all of the subtitles as well as the majority of the picture graphics, for which we subtly parallaxed the archive imagery supplied and created a VHS effect to heighten the visual look and impact of the series. I hope the show helps to bring to light who was responsible for Charlene’s murder and also opens back up a discussion about other similar stories too.”
