The 'Moving Image' Industry | North West | Red Vision

Another Manchester based company who also have a base in London. Red Vision are responsible for a few things for the BBC, one called 'ancient voices' which red vision claims was probably the first ever program to  introduce realistic virtual characters (ancient voices was a series on the BBC in 1998)
Also for the BBC they did special effects for a program called 'Battlefield Britain' which won them a BAFTA in 2005 for visual effects.

As well as work for the BBC they have done (reading from the 'about' section on their website) work for Hiscox Insurance...heres the ad (they did the cats bit!.....

As well as making loads of cats run across the screen, they also made 'a huge crowd' for a T in the Park campaign, but from what I saw this year when i was there, they didn't have to make one!

Their latest thing on their website which they have produced was in 2006...nearly 4 years since they did anything???? who knows but in 2006 they did effects for a program called 'Ocean Odyssey'
Although, saying that they did that show called 'Headcases' know, the one with the celebrities with big heads on ITV 1.....might have lasted one season but i have no idea when it aired, just says 'Sunday 6th April 10pm'. Anyway here's a picture of Katie Price and Peter Andre...this should help date the program (if you read The Sun)!!

(Wikipedia says 2008)

I don't know what to think of this place, some of the stuff they've done, which can be vieved on their website....
