Sorry Mate I Didn't See You! (1982)

Concept and creative process

Opening titles for a series which gave advice on using the road as a motorcyclist. A variety of causes of accidents between motorcyclists and pedestrians, car and lorry drivers were montaged in an opening sequence of whip pans over traffic signage, pixellated live action and stills of people of all ages. It ended with the title handwritten on the road. The photographs were shot by BBC staff photographer Pete Lane in and around Shepherd's Bush in West London with a motorised 35mm camera. The printed photographs were filmed by Anne Smith (Kelt) as a sequence on the rostrum camera to give it a graphic street feel.
