The Burning Season

Like an indonesian forest on fire, Director Cathy Henkel and Mary Benn sparked captivating visuals that explained the complex sections of Cathy's eco-active documentary "The Burning Season". We combined chainsaw wielding Indonesian shadow puppets with smokey textures, stylised forests and factories, graphic maps and a striking fiery red and yellow colour palette. The documentary met with enormous success collecting awards across the globe and sparking productive online discussion. Our animated titles also earned a Gold Promax for best title design in 2009.
