Imaginary Forces Tackles MTV Movie Awards

Imaginary Forces tackles the MTV Movie Awards with iconic and exhilarating blockbuster homages in 13 category animations.


Los Angeles, CA -- Imaginary Forces creative director Grant Lau brought iconic and exhilarating blockbuster homages to the 2013 MTV Movie Awards in 13 category animations: Movie of the Year, Male, Female, Breakthrough, On-Screen Duo, Shirtless, Fight, Kiss, WTF Moment, Scared-As-Sh**t, Musical Moment, Hero and Villain.  As well as screen content, broadcast graphics and additional editorial packages.  The animations, and show, aired Sunday, April 14th, on MTV.     

Each category begins with an animation dedicated to iconic characters and images related to the category: a Kill Bill samurai sword slicing and dicing for Female, an E.T. finger touch for On-Screen Duo, a Fight Club-inspired pink bar of soap for Fight, to name a few.   

Explains Lau, “The process usually starts with our client Lee Lodge.  He will have an idea or picture and from there we start the design process.  Our general directive was to animate iconic blockbusters related to each category.  From there it was a fun, creative process of discovery.”

The tools Lau and team used were MAXON Cinema 4D, Adobe After Effects, Photoshop and Illustrator, and Apple Final Cut Pro.
