Omnibus (1967)

Concept and creative process

A simple solution for the flagship Arts programme 'Omnibus'. Low budget and quick to shoot, it takes its cue from the O of the title and plays with the graphic possibilities of multiple exposure of the concentric coloured rings. Back-lit Kodaliths and coloured gels were filmed using the animation stand of the rostrum camera to pan the circles across the frame. The logo of the title was filmed in a similar manner.
