Shay Hamias BBC Style Recommendations

Shay is the expert on the 2.5D world technique. Here are some examples, a wide range in look & feel but he comes from a very strong design, award winning background so can adapt very easily to any brief.
His immediate thoughts were: “ I think this fantastic script lends itself to a clean, premium look using 2.5D which will enable it to be full of amazing design form the backgrounds to the
characters. I have done quite a lot in this style and would be comfortable with the quick turnaround.
Aside from that, I have always loved mazes and think there are lots of fun possibilities, visually to explore here….. the maze can change colours, weather, season, time of day as the main character is running through it. This could be a brilliant device to reflect the large variety of content the BBC offers”.
Here are his examples ranging from some test to commercials etc… You will see from those that you can really use whatever you like in terms of elements to create environments to move around in. For example, in Cuties test there are flat 2D design elements, hand drawn element and a 3D camera. This same technique is used in Vertu with stills photography! As we will suddenly have a generous budget if we use this route, we can add 3D elements in there too as per script.
