I created this concept for a presentation held at Georgia Tech’s Media Fest 2010, displaying pre-production work for a full length motion picture project. Based on CNN’s Larry King, the concept embodies the films own twist of the world renowned man, his set, and television station.

Everything in the set was modeled in Maya and rendered with Mental Ray. Utilizing Mental Ray’s global illumination helped greatly in achieving the set’s final light distribution. The logo was created in Adobe Illustrator and imported into Maya as a beveled object . The backdrop went through several iterations before I settled on it’s final result. I was interested in creating a LED type of backdrop and done some test to find a way of synchronizing a single image on several pieces of geometry. I ended up simply combining all the pieces into one piece of geometry and applied a planer UV set to each side. For the mic I looked in a lot of places for high resolution pictures of one but could not find one, so I made one with the use of a displacement map.

The spinning globe is a simple white sphere with a black and white vector image hooked to its transparency and glow attributes. All elements were rendered with layers and composited in After Effects. This project was very fun as well as a great learning experience being the first piece of motion graphics I have ever created.
