The Process

The Process

We were tasked to create a series of branding promos for key shows in the Fox International 2012-13 lineup. They needed to be simple, localizable and readily understandable without relying on colloquialisms etc. We also needed to be able to build a rich production with short amounts of time with the individual talent as well as really random amounts of production space.

We shot multiple productions in Hollywood Center Studios (once on the Lucille Ball stage!), Raleigh Studios in Atlanta (inside The Walking Deads prison set), and in Swansea, Wales (in an old Ford factory that has been converted to locations of medieval Florence, Italy).

Talent was shot individually, choreographed to be composited together to look like it was all group shot with one exception (see if you can figure out which it was), and ultimately composited together in CGI environments some simple, some more complex.

For The Simpsons we developed a storyline and were given a slew of animation from Gracie Films to use. Through modification and supplemental animation on our end we were able to execute the concepts.
