The protagonist, Faraday, delivered an important message using a series of vintage, ray-tube-powered, colour televisions. We composited images of Faraday’s speech into each screen, generating effects that recreated the image projection seen on a real television set. With this earlier television technology pivotal to the episode, it was important that we designed an aesthetic that remained authentic.
To visualise the key components of Faraday’s speech, we created hand-drawn imagery accompanied by annotations to appear directly on-screen. The annotations were designed to appear written on the camera lens using pen, mirroring the writing of equations and notes on a whiteboard.
