Motion Graphic Sizzle Reel
Contrast Films inherited a sizzle reel project from another production company through their client, The Solomon Group. Sometimes sizzles don’t sizzle enough. Pretty sure that’s why Sizzler went out of business. The Solomon Group thought this sizzle wasn’t sizzling enough, so Contrast suggested they bring us onboard to give it a go. We threw it on the grill to get it sizzling again…that’s why it has all those diagonal slashes…those are actually grill marks.

Matt’s dad has a passion for stale Cheetos. Seriously he leaves a bag open for a couple days before he eats them, it’s pretty gross. Maybe if this show would have been about strange food people are passionate about it would have actually gotten picked up by a network. Instead it sits on our digital shelf showing off a cool video branding package we did.

Looping Screen Graphics
There’s this great scene in the movie Spaceballs where some characters put in a tape of the movie Spaceballs and end up watching the exact scene. If you go into the front doors of the Baton Rouge Area Chamber, you can have the exact same experience. Okay so maybe it’s way different. But there’s a scene you can watch that’ll have an animated version of the exact lobby you’re standing in with a video on the very same screen you’re watching the video on. Fine…Spaceballs is better. We’d put a video of that here, but we didn’t do the movie, but we did do this looping video that plays in the lobby at the BRAC office. Also we added a sweet library music jam to this for your viewing pleasure.

ExxonMobil threw some sort of party and we did not get invited… But we did get invited to do some graphics for the event. The client (we were told) was really hyped on triangles, so we built some triangular mosaic artwork. Here’s a welcome screen video, as well as the closing animation of a video presentation.

I often hear teenagers use the phrase “real talk” to emphasize that they are being serious about something. Straight talk must be the middle-aged version of that. It’s the name given to this blog that BCBSLA does. Real talk, we did the video branding for Straight Talk.

We Make It
Spec Commercial / Motion Graphics Package
Every production house has done a car ad or two, but I’m willing to bet this one is a lot cooler looking than the ones done by other firms. We did a whole series of spots based on the creative in this spec. After the first run, we gave the working files over to the Moran Group so they could produce new spots based around the creative.

Birth of a National Treasure
We were beyond excited when Red Six called and asked us to work on the Birth of a National Treasure. At the time though, we thought this was a documentary about the movie National Treasure starring Nicholas Cage. Instead it was a video for the Louisiana Chemical Association about the history of oil in Louisiana. Even though this project suffers from a severe lack of Nicholas Cage, we like the way it turned out. Here’s the into section as well as a graphic section from the middle of the piece. Hopefully someone sees this an asks us to work on that National Treasure documentary.

Who would have thought that alcohol is so boring that someone would have to pay us money to create some graphics to make alcohol more interesting. Oh, maybe it’s legislation that’s boring. Anyway these graphics look pretty tight though.

None of us have ever been into pickup lines, but we have been into picking up motion graphics jobs even when the client provides us with the graphics. And if you hire us, we wont’ be cheesy like pickup lines…or that line for that matter.
