GALLERY 13: BBC Proms - Flamenco, Clock

These visually appealing spots succeed in modernising the perception of the BBC Proms music festival. Traditional scenes of London are juxtaposed with flamenco dancers, graffiti artists and drumming musicians to bring the event to life. An original musical score combines orchestral strings with the sounds of flapping bird's feathers and the tapping of flamenco shoes. Interestingly, in the production of the commercial, parts of the clock were created digitally but much of it was literally painted on to the square.
