Helium produced a complete graphics package for Fox Network
Helium Productions has produced a complete graphics package for Fox Network in collaboration with design company Big Media Group. Helium produced 19 minutes of 3D animation which is shown in IDs for "Just One Fox," menu beds and on-air promo material including opens, closes and backgrounds for all talent IDs. Helium creative director John Scheafer explains, "The goal was to maintain a consistency with previous Fox Network packages while bringing a fresher look to the images." The company created 3D environments for use as backgrounds which included multiple layers of typography as both outlines and rendered forms, which provided the building blocks for the entire campaign. The project utilized SGI Octanes, Side Effects' Prisms software, as well as proprietary composite and resource management programs. Bryan Thombs was the project's lead animator with creative director John Scheafer and technical director Miles Vignol. Big Media Group designed the package with Dale Herigstad as creative director/designer and Pam Cohen as executive producer.
