ERA404 was commissioned to create a graphic open for The Electronic Theatre‘s “An English Mystery.”
The finished piece was comprised of 5,000 images taken from 22 renderings, 3D motion, and original music by Craig Spoth of Asmodaen Productions.
3D type and logos were built for the show packaging for USA’s Original Series, The 4400. The campaign and logo was designed by designer / art director Gary Keenan and compositing and VFX were executed by Craig Lamson (both of CreativeGroup.TV) on Autodesk Smoke.
ERA404 3D Artists worked with CreativeGroup.TV designer/art director, Gary Keenan, to produce several test animations of the proposed Superbowl 39 logo for the Fox Network. One concept followed traffic along the Jacksonville bridge, through the wires of its rigging and out, where the bridge takes its position as the logo resolves. The second concept used the sharp slashes of the logo’s XXXIX characters as a transitional device out of the programming and into the logo. ERA404 was involved with concepting, 3D animation and execution. The logo was provided by Fox.
CreativeGroup.TV designer /art director, Gary Keenan approached ERA404 3D animators and compositors to build an animated Subaru logo complete with crystal and chrome stars to refract bold white type and client footage. The stars became transitional devices and most of the footage was shown either reflected on a facet of the stars or through the crystal itself. The final spot was composited by CreativeGroup.tv VFX Artist Craig Lamson.
3D animators and compositors worked with CreativeGroup.TV to concept and execute graphics for a Nickelodeon SpongeBob SquarePants commercial announcing the Complete 3rd Season on DVD. The commercial features floating pineapple slices, the ocean floor and a nervous blue goldfish.
ERA404 3D Artists worked with Senior Animator, Katherine Burke of Broadway Video’s design division DesignLab (now titled bCreative), to composite live-action footage of Sesame Street character “Elmo” into a virtual 3D environment.
The show open was composited in Adobe AfterEffects in both English and Spanish.
