Update: Here's some video, a menu minus the 2 followed by Silk, in full HD.

Nothing original here really, but something new for TV Forum. A real world, real life physical mock.

I'm having a go at recreating some of the original BBC Two "2" idents, hopefully starting with Powder. I thought I'd share some of the behind the scenes prep and things before I actually film it in a few weeks time.

Firstly, I have a wooden "2" I made many many years ago at school, I've repainted this in the colours I'm thinking of using for my more accurate 3D printed two which I'm in the process of sanding smooth and painting today. Vauxhall blue has a nice metallic teal viridian look to it which I think might work well for another ident I'm planning on doing (can you guess which)

I can think of worse things to do on a bank holiday weekend! Smile

Tee hee, once the models are done I will indeed try (and am open to) ideas for other situations of things to do with it. And Larry, it is surprisingly satisfying to hold, as Martin Lambie said in the "how do they do that" video there is a lot of "2" to hold and do things with, took some tweaking to get the depth to look and feel right, but its a very novel thing.

And WillPS you have a point, but look on the bright side it's not another GMDayMorningBreakTV mock Smile

Look forward to this - still amazes me that many of the original 2's were physical rather than computer generated. Indeed arguably designers achieved more towards the latter day of physical models than they can today with computer generated design.

It would seem a little out of place, what with the 2 being merely printed on an object rather than the 2 resembling the object.
