Sky Atlantic Documentary Films 2013.
As if being sent around the world three times already by Ricky Gervais in An Idiot Abroad wasn't enough, everyone's favourite 'round-headed buffoon' is set to do it all again, but this time on his own journey of self-discovery.
His new series, The Moaning of Life will see the now very well travelled Karl experience how other cultures face up to some of life's biggest issues, while at the same time planning for his own future.
Sky Sports kick off biggest Premier League season.
Title sequence for Sky Sports brand new programme 'Saturday Night Football'. A brand new show for Sky's 5.30pm Saturday evening Premier League fixture. David Jones and Jamie Redknapp will present analysis of the match from a stunning new studio and debate all the talking points with an audience of football fans.
Through a combination of live action, studio shoots and Softimage ICE crowd replication, we were able to quickly populate the Trophy stadium.
A setup built in Nuke by Joseph Dymond, allowed us to quickly change the footage of the Jumbo Screens, which then re-lit the stadium. This was extremely useful as a number of hero shots had to be changed due to the pre-season transfer window.
The Lions Tour title sequence combines shot on location in Australia footage, with that of Maya simulated 3D clouds. The clouds, at first abstract, slowly morph into roaring lions, bringing an energetic and battling energy to the title sequence. The musical score and MPC master grade affirm the grand scale.
In order to help explain some of the more technical aspects of a Formula 1 car, a series of 'Jargon Buster' spots were created. In this example Ted Kravitz is explaining KERS (Kinetic energy recovery system).
We were tasked with producing a graphical and almost x-ray vision of an F1 car. This allowed us to really show the inner workings of these extremely technical and complex machines in a visually striking way whilst maintaining clarity.
The brand new dating show 'The Love Machine' is now on Sky Living HD."For the first time, we present to you the twinkly, neon, twirly-whirly splendidness of The Love Machine."
Additional particles were built using Trapcode Particular for Nuke.
All footage was shot using the Red Epic, with the plates for tracking being captured at 5k in order to maintain resolution for the track into Stacey Solomon’s eye.
Fulfilling many a boyhood dream, Matt Bell and Pip Holmes set out to replicate the moves of their favourite action movie heroes, with no-nonsense Miyagi-style masters putting them through their paces in preparation for a quest-ending homage to the iconic closing fight scene from The King of the Kickboxers. Can the lads deliver a kick-ass performance, or will theirs be handed to them instead?
Monday Night Football (MNF) is a football programme on Sky Sports which broadcasts live English football generally from the Premier League.
The main concept for the MNF title sequence was that of 'building projection mapping'. Featuring BSkyB's newest broadcast building as the canvas, we have projected footage of the 2011-2012 Premier League season onto the buildings facade.
The footage was projected so as to 'interact' with the building via; simulated cloth tears, smashing glass and collapsible walls.
With helicopters, fireworks, light effects and a (entirely built in Nuke) crowd of ten's of thousands, we have created a vibrant, energetic & electrical festival atmosphere.
Movie magic comes to Sky Movies 'This Christmas.'
With an extremely tight turn around and a constantly fluctuating brief, we had to utilise many of Nuke X features to complete the job on time. These included; 3D camera tracking, particle animation, and building the 'magical' rippling screens in Nukes 3D environment.
The VT for the screen inserts was not fully decided until very late, so in order to achieve the quickest turn around possible, Nuke was used to edit and select the VT, matching the action of the tablet footage.
2011 has been a brilliant year for cinema blockbusters, but the biggest movie of the year is about to hit the silver screen.
On Thursday 7 July, the stars will descend on Trafalgar Square for the glitzy premiere of Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2.
As the mighty wizarding saga draws to a close, Sky's cameras will be on the red carpet broadcasting interviews with the stars and all the action from Harry Potter's glamorous opening night, live in 3D.
If you can't make it to Trafalgar Square, this is the next best thing.
In collaboration with MPC London, we created a stereo test card and promo video which helps customers correctly set up their stereo TV for the optimum viewing experience.
With all stereo clean up, keying, tracking, set extension and comping of the 3D 'floating' glasses & invisible head being completed in NukeX, MPC then added the 3D tv set and 'Test Card' environment featuring Zoe Ball.
*Please note that the above videos are cut downs of the full length Test Card (left eye only).
The 2011 Solheim Cup, the biennial golf tournament for professional women golfers contested by Europe and the United States takes place over 23 – 25 September and will be broadcast live by Sky Sports.
Utilizing Nukes 3D environment, we were able to project animated textures; water ripples, flag pole target onto the detailed 3D geomitry from Softimage.
We love summer and we love festivals, so this summer we bring the cream of the festival crop straight to your living room as Sky Arts does Summer Festivals!
Britain's Next Top Model gets bigger and better.The brand new name expands the search for the next big thing in modelling across Ireland, with Elle Macpherson and her team of fabulous judges leaving no stone unturned in their quest to find someone truly special to take this year's title.
VFX work and grading on the ‘Back To The Future’ style promotion for BBC’s current series Turn Back Time: The High Street series conceived by RKCR.
Hosted by Master Chef’s Gregg Wallace, a group of shop-keeping families are transported back to the birth of the high street in the 1870s, and propelled through a century of change, right up to the modern era and the 1970s.
The commercial, directed by Daniel Greaves at Tandem Films and with special effects and finishing touches by Rushes, follows the different varieties of fruit; blackcurrants, blueberries, cranberries, and pomegranates as they migrate like a single-minded herd of wildebeest across vast tracts of treacherous land, including rivers, forests and plains towards the holy grail of the ‘Ribena Gates’.
The previous three slots that Tandem shot for Ribena were done in their rather large basement but after reading the script for ‘Migration’ it was clear that this required being shot on location and that there was no avoiding truly epic environments … cue New Zealand.
Combustion operators Joe Dymond and Anthony Laranjo created mattes and clean plates for the live action clipping planes and Adam Watson completed fine compositing for the 40 second, 30 second and 3 x 10 second commercials over 15 days.
