James Franco narrates the PBS American Masters award winning EAMES: THE ARCHITECT AND THE PAINTER. Charles and Ray Eames are among the most important American designers of this century. They are best known for their groundbreaking contributions to architecture, furniture design (e.g., the Eames Chair), industrial design and manufacturing, and the photographic arts.
Our biggest challenge designing the motion graphics for this film was that we did not want to intrude upon the already existing design of EAMES. It was very important for us to create animation that would not distract the viewer but rather marry the voice of EAMES into a seamless presentation of visuals. An absolute gift to work on this project.
