VIDEO BOX BUSY CREATING BROADCAST GRAPHICS

Back in December, Video Box hired creative director/partner Jason Hearne to set up the new department, which features Autodesk/Alias Maya and Maxon Cinema 4D for animation, along with Adobe After Effects for compositing. With the graphics department in place, the team took on a show open for Tabloid Wars, a new Bravo original program about the Daily News vs. the New York Post. The studio worked with producer Bradley Warden to shoot the necessary props, such as newspapers, on an insert stage.

The studio also created interstitials for ABC's Sons and Daughters. A raw, hand-held approach was employed to capture the overall feeling for the package, creating a gritty look. The idea was to create a look that resembled the inside of a worn and somewhat tattered photo album. The producers wanted the show graphics - the IDs for each character - to have a similar feeling to the hand-held camera motion that's present from start to end.

Lastly, the studio created the main titles for the A&E realty program, God or the Girl. The show follows four young men on their way to the priesthood and the temptations they face along the way.
