RICK STEIN'S FAR EASTERN ODYSSEY

Motion graphic / HD video title sequence for Rick's Far Eastern series, created in uncompressed HD throughout. Original map graphic animations mapped on to 3D 'parasols' in Lightwave 3D, plus animated Thai script reflecting some of the ingredients of far eastern cuisine. Live-action / graphic sequence composited on to a huge canvas in 3D space within Adobe After Effects.

Original music by Crocodile Music.

The series was filmed in high definition and the first programme was aired on Thursday 16th July at 20.00 on BBC2. It took Rick from the teardrop island of Sri Lanka - famed for tea, coffee and coconuts - to Bangladesh, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia.

Rick says, “This is a series about seriously simple food – no swanky hotels. This will be the real stuff. Fat blue-backed prawns served with green mango and tomatoes, river journeys, back streets and beaches, flashing knives and ruby red chillies, spicy green papaya salad and soft steaming noodles served on battered tin plates."
