Morse Code - The Scout Association

The Scout Association wanted a scene where two teams of children are sending morse code messages with torches, whilst the other team tries to work out what those messages are.

Initial sketches of the idea. I was trying to work out the best way to illustrate how the morse code would be sent by torch. As GIF animation wasn't an option we settled for dots and dashes in circles of light.

Each torch is displaying "GM", "SOS" and "GE", morse code for "Good Morning", the well known distress signal: "SOS" and "Good Evening".
