Audio Track: “L.N.G. (AOTS Remix)” by Impactist.

A while ago, G4 kindly asked us to whip up something special for the 1/11/11 reboot of their daily digest of culture and cool, Attack of the Show! Or as its known to those long hip to this daily detonation of meta-meme-messaging, simply AOTS. The G4 team was keen on elements they saw in an earlier sequence of sight and sound we had created, so we reassessed, extended, and remixed fresh live action, still photography, and animation into a new main title sequence. Additionally, we composed a new full length music track that drives the new intro and plays into the show.
The dynamic sequence serves as a striking non sequitur from what precedes it with staccato sounds and images dripping with self referential visuals only fully observed via repeat viewings.
AOTS has an incredibly intense and outspoken fan base, so the team at G4 had the incredibly tough task of making adjustments to a program that is under such extreme scrutiny. New set, new host, new show, new awesome. G4 was fantastic to work with and we appreciate the opportunity to contribute to a program that has rightly earned itself a dedicated audience that can dole out both fierce affection and loyal criticism.
