In celebration of Queen Elizabeth's 94th birthday ITV commissioned BBC Studios to make a 60 min documentary that reveals Princess Elizabeth's extraordinary teenage life during the Second World War years. Working with animator Andy A'Court, Chris Mitchell was briefed to created a series of vintage poster style vector illustrations suitable for Andy to add texture effects and animate. The 'Our Queen at War' showed rare film footage montaged with the short animations, providing a seamless theme introduction to the key topics of interest. In this particular illustrative frame, Princess Elizabeth is seen driving a military ambulance during her time in the ATS.
