BBC, Grime Kids

For Mammoth Screen BBC3 – Grime Kids, Series 1

Below, Grime Kids – Trailer

DJ Target

Based on the book by DJ Target, Grime Kids is a coming of age drama written by Theresa Ikoko and set in 2001 in Bow, East London. The show follows a fictional group of school leavers across what they believe to be their “last summer as kids”.

We follow Dane, Junior, Kai, Bishop and Bayo as they navigate first loves, fracturing home lives, financial pressures, brushes with danger, and the ever present question: what kind of man do you want to be? All the while pursuing a very new, and maybe not so justified dream to make it big in the garage music scene.

Pickled played a VFX role, removing crew reflections, equipment, street furniture, screen and sky replacements.

(Seen Right) An opening sequence, constructed in Autodesk Flame with a brief to create a smooth transition from photograph through to digital camera. The footage was stabilised, tracked and animated with reflections and digital pixelation added for bedding into the camera screen.

The series launched on BBC iPlayer for BBC3, produced by Mammoth Screen.
