This week is a video posting! A couple of videos for your viewing pleasure.

The first one is HOCKEY NIGHT IN CANADA. This is the new opening that we did to go with the new music. We did the old opening as well, but I guess with all the hubbub about the new song, they wanted a new open as well. I know most people aren't fans of the new song, and I'm personally indifferent eitherway as I'm not a hockey fan, but people seem to like the new opening, and I guess that's all I care about! I would love to change tons of things about it, but time and budget wouldn't allow. Over all, the team at Bigstudios did a great job at pulling this together.

This second clip is for the new LIVE @ MUCH opening that we just finished for Much Music. This was super fun to work on, as is most MM stuff, as there is tons of creative freedom. They basically came to us with an idea of what they wanted to see and then let us loose. We shot all the footage we needed, and then I went mad animating over most of the people (rotoscope + FX) in Flash. The other guys were busy comping away and making the whole thing looked unified with editing, colour and lighting in After FX. I like how this one turned out and it was tons of fun.... late hours, but fun.
