CMT brought us on board to design/create the open titles, main title & show package for their new competition series, Redneck Island.
The idea was to combine two things that we admittedly love, The Enchanted Tiki Room and Stonecold Steve Austin (yes, we said it!).  The concept began as a tiki statue modeled on the host, Steve Austin, and quickly evolved into a flowing camera move through the island's interior passing cast IDs and redneck elements until it arrives at a fully flushed out custom 3D 'Tiki Steve'. As night falls the main title sign spikes into the ground, the barrels ignite and 'Tiki Steve' comes alive. Most of the elements were created in Cinema 4D shored up by some comping and environments created in After Effects. Other than agonizingly long render times if we had to sum up this project in one word it would be 'fun.'
