195 Piccadilly

Novak, Ed Carter (UK)


195 Piccadilly celebrated famous faces from film and television using images from BAFTA’s archive.

Paying homage to the building’s origins as the home of the Royal Society of Watercolour Painters, this colourful animated projection was accompanied by a soundtrack composed by Ed Carter and inspired by the classic music that helped define whole genres of film and television.
