This poignant film depicts the life of a young woman moving through childhood, adolescence and then into motherhood as the disease starts to take hold. The Mill's 3D Animation team, lead by Francois Roisin, worked to create an effective portrayal of the devastating impact of cancer within the body, by way of creating the microscopic cancer cells seen rapidly multiplying over time.
Francois explains, "Cancer Research UK was a great opportunity for the team here at The Mill, because we practically had carte blanche in terms of design and storytelling. Our design teamworked closley together in the early stages withthe director Yann and the agency to storyboard and design the shots, to ensure they would be seamlessly integrated into the edit.Also in knowing that Yann was shooting with 35mm film, helped us in defining a soft and warm look to the CGI".
James Bamford, Mill Colourist further comments "With the film being shoton 35mm Yann and I had the rare opportunity to give this film the classicand timeless filmic presence it deserves".
The spot is part of an integratedcampaign that features the Cancer Research UK 'One Day' manifesto across TV, print, radio, online and in cinemas.
