BigStar collaborated with HBO again on the new promotional teaser for the upcoming third season of Game of Thrones. The challenge in creating this spot came from the necessity to generate environments utilizing a combination of still photography, 3D, and compositing. The narrative, "their world returns to ours," develops as we follow the raven through a series of scenes from around the globe. The atmosphere, inspired by light in the dawn and dusk hours, uniquely blends a still eeriness from our world and the mystical intrigue of the Game of Thrones franchise.
Bigstar was delighted to create the opening title sequence for Love, Marilyn, a new film by Liz Garbus. The documentary reveals the omnipresent icon's intimate inner life and desires through readings and reenactments by contemporary actors. Utilizing iconic imagery and tactile graphic techniques, we created a piece that portrays Marilyn Monroe through a fresh, contemporary, and timeless lens.
Bigstar was thrilled to collaborate with Food Network on the promo package for the upcoming season of The Next Iron Chef. Our aim was to create a series of dynamic spots that tell the story of the epic theme of the season: Redemption, while highlighting the mastery of its star chefs and remaining true to the brand. From concept to completion, we plunged into research, writing, designing, shooting, animating, and everything in between. This campaign is an excellent example of creative collaboration and partnership, particularly regarding our work with the Food Network team and Plush. We're proud to present these bold spots as a part of our featured work.
Earlier this year, ABC came to Bigstar to update the look of their flagship evening program, World News with Diane Sawyer. It was important that the new approach was contemporary, fresh, and stood out from the typical evening news conventions. We delved into multiple aesthetic directions, finally landing on the concept of a cubed landscape filled with motion and momentum seen on a global and intimate scale. Bigstar was thrilled to create this standout package for ABC World News.
Left/Right came to Bigstar to work on History Channel's new series, United Stats of America, hosted by identical twin comedians, Randy and Jason Sklar. The show reveals stories behind the most surprising and interesting statistics throughout American history from past to present. Bigstar branded the series graphically, creating a design language for visualizing graphs, stats, and data throughout the 6 episodes. We worked with Left/Right across all levels of production from parsing data to directing action. We had a blast with Left/Right and the Sklars brothers on this all-American cross-country adventure.
