BBC World News



BBC's creative team call on The Mill to re-design the 'top of the hour' news titles for their BBC World News Channel.

Our design and animation talent created a new full 60 second countdown for BBC's World News Channel. "This was in fact an enormous undertaking" says Mill VFX Executive Producer Luke Colson. "The existing titles had reigned for a long time and are seen across a channel that now reaches numerous countries around the globe. After an initial briefing, we began static designs before beginning animation tests on the preferred options. We were thrilled to have had the chance to re-design, animate and deliver something so iconic and with such incredible reach."
