Knockin’ Boots

The first time you lay your eyes on them, you’re entranced. You’re hypnotized by those delicate calves flexing your direction, but you’re smart and remember there aren’t any muscles in fingers so it’s nothing but all-natural tendons and those hot, hot finger-boots that have you suddenly considering a new future for yourself and this vision of beauty strutting before you.

With moves like The Shy Leg, The Basic Instinct, and The Playful Kitten to name a few, we were happy to get the go-ahead from FX to craft a few temperature raising IDs with all focus on these unexpected steamy getaway sticks. Matched with a laid back R&B track like H-Town’s “Knockin’ Da Boots”, Ginuwine’s “Pony”, Whapp’s “Put It In”, G Gerlz “Ride It and Hide It”, or any number of classic hits, these moves will move.

Get ready to see all the bridesmaids doing The Playful Kitten at the next wedding reception you’re at. Sorry, not sorry.

You’re the Worst

For the fourth season of You’re the Worst, we worked with our friends at FX on this package filled with lip bites, eye roll snark, and detached cool.

We were fortunate to snag some time with the FX crew for a quick live action shoot with Chris & Aya to intercut with stylized still photography. Live action mixes with hand crafted type, bound by rhythmic tiling grids in pieces built to surround and support the broadcast series.

We might all be the worst, but hopefully we’re somebody’s worst.

FXX – The Simpsons

When we’re asked to go off-model, we go off-model. To help promote Every Simpsons Ever on FXX, we were asked to craft something new and unexpected that was recognizably Simpsons, but not properly Simpsons. We reduced and reorganized characters and hitched and halted animated movement in an effort to be Simpsons-esque… but, definitely not Simpsons proper. The characters almost merge, but not quite. If one were so daft they may say they are Marging, not merging.

The League – Seasons 6 & 7

If fantasy football is hybrid of the little guys wanting to be like the big guys, then why not have a package that itself is a hybrid of big and small.

For season six of the FXX series The League, we created an episodic package made up of several micro-vignettes. Tiny hairstyles, tiny toilets, tiny nudity, and tiny trophies are all there. It has everything except overwhelming scale.

The package was captured entirely as live action. All optical effects captured in camera.

Below is a montage of the episodic package and promos we created for the seventh and final season of the The League on FXX.

It may be the final season in the trophy room, but the gang of The League isn’t going to go out quietly. Handcrafted busts get theirs when hundreds of gallons of Rafi-Ade explodes across the scene. A celebratory tsunami of orange drink sees the distinguished arrangement sink as FXX closes the book, and the EBDB, on the long fantasy run of The League.
