Working with Jean-Paul Leonard at Company Wide Shut, we created two
graphics packages. "The Liaison" graphics package included a Godfather
themed blinged out logo and a bunch of diamond encrusted lower thirds for
the Jersey Shore skit. In the skit, host Jane Lynch plays Donatella Alberghetti
Mangiana D'Borgia, a Jersey TV exec who claims she 'discovered' the MTV
Two days before the show, producers got Anderson Cooper to intro the skit
so the theme changed to an AC360 style open. We cranked out a whole
new look of shimmering broadcast graphic looking animation and our
graphics were composited at Dakota Pictures 48 hours before the broadcast.
We used Cinema 4D to create "The Liaison" pendant and lower thirds as well
as the spinning 3D globe held by the statue and After Effects to render keyable
graphics to deliver for finishing.
The graphics packages were created with Photoshop, After Effects and Cinema 4D.
