Rushes designed and executed all content for the evening ceremony of the first ever Virgin Media Shorts Awards held on September 29 2008, at The British Film Institute on London’s Southbank.

Rushes’ producer Sophie Elmy worked closely with director Peter Muggleston and Rushes’ senior VFX creative Roisin, to design the full graphics content for the show. Peter directed the opening interviews with the 12 finalists, which were then packaged with full Virgin Media branding for the show. Roisin worked on both Flame and Smoke to bring the graphics to life.

Roisin comments, "This project needed every element to be considered. It was a live show, so not only did we have to supply beautiful high end graphics but extremely useable and practical elements for the slick transitions which are needed for this kind of working environment."
