Client: The Rosie Show
Description: This was a special episode of Rosie O’ Donnell’s talk show on OWN. Since the entire episode was going to be a tribute to Tony Bennett, I had to create a completely new graphics package (open, bumpers, lower-thirds, transitions) This is the show open I created with the help of designer Brandon Newman. Since “The Rosie Show” didn’t have the rights (or couldn’t afford) footage from Bennett’s earlier career, we had to use a lot of photos and animate them in a 3D environment. I included two examples.
