I had the pleasure of creating the open for S Media's show/website content called Ski Television.
The core idea branched from the other side of their branding - S Magazine.
They made my life easy by providing some already solid graphic elements and designs that I could use and integrate into the open animation.
We also had some awesome added help from our sister company in Mexico, Don Porfirio (http://www.donporfirio.tv), who helped bang out the sexy giant S logo at the end!
With that part in place, they provided some amazing footage which I composited right on top of and tracked a lot of simple elements to seem as thought they were a part of the scene. I didn't want to take away from the beautiful visuals that were naturally there, so I tried to keep it as simple as possible and keep a "magazine" look and feel to the whole thing, while still keeping fluid motion throughout.
