Had a set of teasers to create for one of e.tv’s new local dramas, Hustle. Celeste, the director on the job gave me the raw shots she wanted and I got to work. Mostly a grading job, with a bit of creative typography and effects work, my aim was to reference a 70’s style with a bit of glam. I spent quite a bit of time on the titles, which started out as Illustrator files with flat colour. I enjoy the challenge of breathing life into static titles.
First up, we have the typography images. These are over a year old by now, so some of the missing features might exist now. Similarly, the render qualities might of changed.
Below you can see the before and after shots of each promo.
Tools of choice on this job were: After Effects, Illustrator and Photoshop with plugins Trapcode, Magic Bullet Looks and Optical Flares.
