Nathan Barley

Award: Graphite Pencil

Graphite Pencil / Digital Media / DVD Design / 2006

For the Nathan Barley DVD, the Framestore Design team's task was to come up with an overall framing device relevant to the shows and extras; a suitably 'Barleyesque' environment which worked as a menu system. The idea originated from the Wasp T12, Nathan's patented, faintly ridiculous mobile phone, as an interface for the menu options. The menu options would appear in the screen of the Wasp and, by attaching a camera to it, the mobile phone could act as our view point of Nathan for a series of linking skits. All of the new material for the skits was shot on MiniDV by Framestore Design's Producer Simon Whalley, Designers Adam Parry and Sharon Lock, and Chris Morris. Essentially a series of guided improvisations, they show Nathan apparently filming himself with his phone as he cluelessly moseys around London.
