We’ve been sitting on a stash of trophies.
For season 5 of the FX series The League, we created an episodic package for the semi-improvised comedy about 6 friends going to absurd lengths to be crowned the winner of their fantasy football league, and thus win the coveted “Shiva” trophy.
Season 5 also saw the series move from FX to FXX. In keeping with the new network’s tone, we used a pointed color treatment, loose analog lens effects, and varied sequential capture methods to complete the package. It’s all about the win, so we built a ton of custom trophies to share the stage with the ever present Shiva. Trophies and other oddities from a non-sequitur sort of man-cave all mix and mingle in the package.
We also crafted the package for Season 6 which we’ll share more about soon.
Additional Stills and Credits
Four, three, two, one. Four mind bending seasons and then it’s done. Farewell Wilfred. We had a great time creatively straddling the line and hanging over the edge just a little bit with these packages. So to wrap it all up, we put together a couple short montages of the elements that comprised the episodic packages we delivered to FX and FXX for season three and four respectively.
“Everything has to do with everything.” -Wilfred
After four years of directing and animating Ryan and Wilfred humping, wiping, tugging, farting, laser-pointing, and dreaming, it all comes to an end as the finale airs tonight.
It’s been a real treat for us to be part of Wilfred on FX and FXX no matter how tangential. The world can always use more weird, and it’s been great to see the Wilfred team add more range to the strange.
Full post and website update for the Wilfred episodic packages for season 3 and 4 coming soon. In the meantime, take some whiffs of these gifs.
