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.
After completing the series of music tracks that comprise our Northeastern album, we pressed on and created this small group of animated projects in direct response. We selected a small portion of each of the selected songs to animate to and let the music lead the work. The driving horns of “Moonbase” push us through a geometrically rendered ether, “Incredibly Frustrating” places us midway through the pages of a children’s book where outerwear narrates with pictures alone, and “Peacefield” has us moving from earth to space following a glass sculpture like a modern day Maltese Falcon.
