“Breaking Belding” Title Sequence & Credits for
YouTube Geek Week and The Nerdist
This Breaking Bad / Saved By The Bell mashup answers the question “What it would be like if the characters from Bayside made their way to Albuquerque for Breaking Belding?” A terminally balding Mr. Belding and Zack Morris have taken to RV caffeine pill cooking in order to pay for treatment, but lots of violent people want to get in their way. What are they to do when they get in trouble? Better reach Screech! Dustin Diamond guest stars in this incredibly effective parody of two things.
Music Video: “Made for Me Forever” by Curtis Peoples
Curtis Peoples reached out to us to make his dream video come true, an 8-Bit video game where he gets to beat the boss and win the girl. We immediately jumped in to building the most authentic game we could come up with: Every sprite is limited to 4 colors, every color is taken from the original Nintendo Entertainment System pallet, the video abides by the number of sprites per scan line and frame rate limits of the NES’s Pixel Processing Unit, the resolution, the memory and everything else fit within the confines of the old NES setup. We even went as far as to mimic the technical aspects of an old CRT TV. The whole screen is made up of little red, green, and blue dots all grouped together, the same setup you would have seen when you were watching Double Dare inches from the TV before your mom told you that you’d ruin your eyes if you sit that close. Curtis was thrilled, and so was the rest of the internet when the music video debuted on The Nerdist along with an exclusive interview.
Save the Supers Opening Sequence
Sandeep Parikh, perhaps best known for co-staring on the hit series The Guild, contacted us to do the motion graphics for his new series Save the Supers. StS is about a “Justice League” style group of heroes who’ve recently fallen on rough times, all documented through a Reality TV style mockumentary. Sort of if This is Spinal Tap, Super Friends, and The Jersey Shore were all mixed together to create a new series sure to work its way to the hearts and minds of nerds everywhere. Debuting at the 2012 Comic Con in San Diego, Save the Supers is currently on My Damn Channel and new episodes air ever Wednesday.
X-Men: First Class Title Sequence
Inspired by classic Sixties movie titles and prompted by a design contest, we’ve built a 1960s style title sequence for the upcoming X-Men: First Class film. This video has made quite the stir on the internet, being featured on Comics Alliance, the largest comic industry site on the internet, i09, Yahoo, internet watering hole, The Daily What, and prompted interest from everyone from San Diego radio stations to the offices of the BBC. As of this writing this little side project has been played over a few hundred thousand times. Roughly is a dozen times the population of Greenland.
Set during the midst of the Cuba Missile Crisis, X-Men: First Class tells the story of the first team coming together, before they would become the heroes and villains we know from the original X-Men Trilogy. This sequence was designed to give a very brief primer on the time period, the setting, as well as show the relationships of the characters in this film, as they are very different from the previous movies and audiences shouldn’t be confused as to why Professor X and Magneto, enemies in the original trilogy, are the best of friends in this prequel.
