A HISTORY OF BLUE NOTE RECORDS

We edited this short film on the history of Blue Note as part of the label’s 75th anniversary celebrations, in conjunction with a Thames and Hudson book release by author/presenter Richard Havers.

 

Presented with a host of iconic album sleeves, archive photographs and contact sheets, we really tried to make the film come to life through our use of motion graphics.  Darren Martin worked on animating the album artwork, and it’s his work that really elevates this above a standard use of archive content.
