Attack of the Show

ROLE: Lead Flame Artist | Senior Broadcast Designer
VENDOR: G4 Media | Comcast

“Attack of the Show” was G4’s somewhat irreverent variety show, emphasizing pop culture entertainment and emerging tech from a hip youth-oriented slant. There’s gadget segments, movie and dvd reviews, comic book coverage, video game features, comedic skits, interviews, musical performances, etc.

When these segment headers were commissioned, the show’s look and feel had already been established. The directive was to expand upon that foundation … specifically, embrace the subversive tone, explore the deconstructivist style, and utilize old cold war propaganda-styled imagery, while mixing in a little bit of ’80s punk rock attitude and humor.

As one might guess, these segment headers were a heck of a lot of fun to design and animate, particularly “What’s Up with Japan” and “The Feed.” It’s refreshing to be able to create without limitations, where the freedom to try anything is encouraged.
