New York Postings: She's got style

NEW YORK - For the sixth season of the syndicated show B. Smith With Style, Chelsea Post (www. designed a fresh: 45 open that combined live-action and layered graphics.

The open features examples of B. Smith's many looks, from casual to upscale, within separate inset boxes, while the letters spelling "style" stream across the screen in different directions.

With the help of Chelsea visual effects supervisor Rob Gelardi and line producer Laurie Kay Gross, the live action shots were acquired in a variety of formats, which were then color corrected and composited with the graphic design in Discreet Inferno. Mary Anne Van Wagner conceived the design of the project.
