A few weeks ago, we were called up by one of our friends to say they were considering us for doing something quite ambitious on a landmark scale in London and would we be interested!
Naturally this had us intrigued. With more details flowing in by the minute, and fuelling our imagination, we quickly realised this represents an opportunity to work with a TV crew that we’ve really enjoyed getting to know and working with in the past… and we’d also get to meet one of our heroes … much celebrated and loved Mr Stephen Fry!
First for some context— Channel 4 have recently commissioned Stephen’s new show, Stephen Fry: Gadget Man
We were tasked with coming up with a game that could be played on the side of a building, not one to shy away from complexity, we came up with several ideas of the types of crowd games that we could make in the incredibly short time. Needless to mention, this is ALL while working on several other projects too!
While we were brainstorming, we had the idea of loosely basing it around the game, ‘Battleships’ so the journey of finding a building in London that had two identical opposing sides began. This particular aspect proved to be one of the trickiest aspects of the project with Shell actually pulling out at the 11th hour and one of London’s University’s being finicky about turning off their lights.
