The Blitz: Britain on Fire

The Blitz: Britain on Fire for C5 retells the horror of the May Blitz of Liverpool in 1941, when the Luftwaffe returned to the skies of the city night after night to drop tons of explosives and incendiary bombs. The series looks at the stories of some of the city’s inhabitants over this period and our job was to provide some local geography connecting the Liverpool streets to these people. By piecing together original maps from the late 30’s we were able to create a three dimensional environment where we could pin individuals to the streets whilst in the skies

Islamophobia Inc

An Aljazeera Investigation This investigation looks at the more recent upsurge in attacks on the Muslim communities in the US, most importantly since the election of Donald Trump. It examines the tactics of right-wing groups that instigate a fear of Islam, including how they manipulate social media to create a false narrative that Muslims are trying to take over the country. Our Motion Graphics help show how Anti-Muslim messages proliferate social media and our explainers help show how bought-in followers, fake accounts and bots amplify that message. You can also watch the full documentary on YouTube. [/vc_row

Cricket’s Match Fixers

Over 18 months of investigations, Medioto worked with Aljazeera’s Investigative Unit and helped reveal how criminal gangs bribe players and officials to fix matches and parts of matches – and make millions from betting on guaranteed outcomes. The initial inspiration for the designs came from Bollywood posters and obviously some of the title text echo the old fashioned scoreboards on the cricket ground. Apart from the obvious title-card, we built profile animations, explainers for the uninitiated cricket fans, test match chapter headings, phone call animations, document/newspaper sequences and the players and authorities ‘right of reply’. There’s a montage below and

Al Jazeera’s Investigative Unit reporter, Deborah Davies first reported on Bennell’s crimes 20 years ago. She has befriended his victims and has a rare insight into their plight. Our efforts were spent bringing the specific details in various documents to light which exposed his deeds and often show the turning of a blind eye to his crimes on the part of the clubs and governing

Unreported World – Titles & Branding

Channel 4’s Hugo Ward commissioned us to rebrand the channel’s flagship documentary strand ‘Unreported World’. We thought we would create a series of silhouetted figures inhabiting a diverse landscape which would attempt to suggest that the programmes were concentrating on the normally faceless figures which the news often bypasses or certainly has less time for. See below.
