era404 loves work
In a cross-promotion between Nickelodeon and Old Navy, child could submit patriotic T-Shirt designs to win prizes in a contest.
The event required a promotional campaign involving ERA404’s construction of a stylized 3D town square complete with billboard and Old Navy store. Mark Newman, a 3D artist for CreativeGroup.TV supplied dancing tee-shirts, featuring designs by John Pollak, composited into the 3D “world” on Autodesk Flame, by Miguel Oldenburg.
ERA404 3D Artists worked with VFX Artist Claudia D’Enjoy and Designer/Art Director Gary Keenan of Broadway Video’s design division DesignLab (now titled bCreative) to produce show packaging for NBC’s 75th Anniversary Special. The graphic concept featured feathers from NBC’s famous peacock logotype and a brand new logo to commemorate the historic event. The 3D was composited by D’Enjoy on Autodesk Inferno.
ERA404 3D Artists worked with Gary Keenan (Designer/Art Director) and Craig Lamson (senior VFX Artist) of CreativeGroup.TV to concept and design show packaging for Outdoor Life Network’s NASCAR Outdoors.
The show package featured a 3D Nascar rounding a turn and finding itself racing through the underbrush of the deep rainforest. Trees, cattails and other vegetation speed by as the 3D camera is carried backward up a cliff wall and into a clearing where the NASCAR Outdoor logo resolves. The logo was designed jointly by Gary Keenan and ERA404.
The elements were composited in Autodesk Flame with 3D geese and procedural sun rays.
NYC-based application service provider, Lyrek, Inc., hired ERA404 to design and develop their free online SAAS, Musikal Chairs (www.musikalchairs.net). The application allows users to create accounts, create events, venues, import attendees, drag-n-drop seating and print a variety of reports all for free.
ERA404 3D Artists worked with Gary Keenan, designer/art director of CreativeGroup.TV, to concept and render (2) 3D logo identities for the MSNBC network.
One concept featured rich blue screens showing television static and refracting the MSNBC 3D logo (reproduced in a shiny multi-colored glass material). The screens revolve around the logo and resolve with MSNBC’s famous mneumonic.
The identity was composited in Autodesk Flame, by CreativeGroup.TV resident VFX Artist, Craig Lamson.
