In just one day, Tube's Greg Partridge edited down more than three hours of Hurricane Katrina footage into a chronological timeline covering the storm's path from Florida to New Orleans. The program can be viewed for free on Comcast On Demand through September.
Pat Piper, TWC producer, contracted Tube to provide online, sound design and graphics packages for three promos that will be used as sales tapes to generate advertising and interest for new shows. "The Weather Channel Top 10" is a clip show highlighting the hottest cities to the windiest cities. "It Could Happen Tomorrow" is a show that asks the question, "What if a natural disaster hit home in your back yard?" And "Full Force Nature" shows the awesome power of nature and how life can be transformed in an instant.
Chris Downs and Alan Hettinger created motion graphics for the promos, mixing 2D and 3D elements from Adobe After Effects and Maxon Cinema 4D. Sound design and mix to picture were performed in Tube's ProTools HD suite.
