BBC2 Padded Cell ident (1996)

Concept and creative process

‘Padded Cell’ was used as an ident in the Comedy Zone of 1996. It was identical in animation to ‘Seeing Stars’ except for omitting the stars whirling about the ‘2’ after it bounces off the camera lens, and for the colour which has been drained of the bright colours of its companion piece and rendered in tones of blue. Mute.
