BMD OPENS 'REGIS AND KELLY'
Colored party streamers and arrows shoot through the city's streets, and once the hosts arrive in Times Square, the new show logo rises from the street to a spot high overhead. The finale looks much like the annual New Year's Eve celebration.
BMD designed and produced the open, which features live action captured with the Red digital cinema camera. The studio also handled the animation and motion graphics.
Sean Owolo executive produced the project. Steve Petersen and Ken Carlson served as creative directors. Petersen also directed the live action. Matthew LeBoeuf was producer on the project and Ming-Shian Wang acted as senior designer.
BMD used Apple PowerMac quad core G5s to execute the open. Graphics tools included Adobe Photoshop CS2, Illustrator CS2 and Maxon Cinema 4D V.9.5.
