Transport yourself through a mysterious portal and experience tranquillity, danger, and nostalgia in this surreal, yet inspirational, ident for W Channel, created by Ink and Giants Studio.
“#Cinema4D has the most supportive community, sharing knowledge and resources, but there wasn’t one specific tool that stood out; #C4D, in general, was just great to work in.” - Peter Dobes, Managing Director at Ink and Giants Studio
Following on from the success of the W channel rebrand by Art & Graft, UKTV approached ink and Giants once again with an exciting opportunity, to create a new ident that will work well with the existing idents and that will take the viewers to a continuous journey through places and moments anywhere and anytime.
The technical challenge was to explore different techniques to create the ident besides live-action filming. Ink and Giants explored a few including 3D camera projection mapping and mixing photography and 3D elements. After a couple of rounds of experiments, they eventually decided to push for a hyperreal to a photoreal full 3D approach. This way they could recreate existing locations from anywhere as well as create new ones.
