easyJet: Inside the Cockpit – TV Graphics

easyJet: Inside The Cockpit Trailer

The Brief

LoveLove Films were commissioned by renowned production company ITN to create the graphics (title and bumpers) for the new ITV two-part mini series ‘easyJet: Inside the Cockpit’ which is narrated by Stephen Fry. The series focuses on new rookie pilots, following their journey from entering the cockpit for the first time to piloting a large jet with over a hundred passengers.

The Process

We were delighted to work with ITN again and to have been chosen to produce the animation work for the series. ITN had a clear vision of how they wanted the graphics to look – incorporating a plane flying across the screen revealing the ‘Inside the Cockpit’ title in the clouds.

Once ITN had decided that they wanted an image of a real easyJet plane to be included as the focus of the animation, the image then needed to have the background removed and replaced with footage of real, cloudy sky.

To make more visually pleasing, the plane was given reflections, shadows and highlights to give a more three dimensional style. Clouds were added to the foreground, putting the plane in amongst the cloud layers.

The Result

LoveLove Films’ Managing Director Georgina Hurcombe states: “It was an absolute pleasure to work with the ITN team once again. ITN always produce such exciting programmes so we were delighted to have been commissioned to provide the graphics for such a great series! We can’t wait to see the programme on air, excuse the pun!”

easyJet: Inside the Cockpit starts airing at 9pm on Monday 14th August on ITV1.
