Opening animation for the KOIN NFL Road Trip, airing each Sunday in 2011-2012.
A lot of work went into this. The background image of the football was from stock which was color graded some in Photoshop. The blue wash was created in Photoshop as well. The Les Schwab logo was supplied, and the KOIN logo in house. These elements were brought into After Effects, where I drew and animated the flag, plus animated the lens flare. A Cinema 4D wizard friend (Kevin) created the football, which I animated to break through the background like glass, and key, just as it flew past the waving flag. Getting everything to move in sync involved several pre-composed layers stacked on top of each other.
I later added the audio track, and composed the short music cue myself, plus built the sound effects of the football woosh and breaking background.
