New York Postings: Guava's Freeride

NEW YORK - Recently formed visual effects house Guava created a series of opens, IDs and graphic elements for the Oxygen Network's Freeride With Greta Gaines. The new show follows Gaines, a snowboarder/actress/musician/environmentalist, as she travels around the world interviewing the locals and participating in the popular activities of those places including ice fishing, rodeos and monster truck races.

The graphics package - created with Adobe's Photoshop and After Effects, and Discreet's Flame and Inferno - emulates extreme sports shows while conveying that the show will also look into the lives of some remarkable people.
