I had the chance to work on some of the initial promo spots for the debut of Sofia the First, but this spot, The Floating Palace (her second movie) was so much more fun.
The whole thing was pretty straight forward, primarily done in Maya (with a bunch of help from Blake Newton), and a bit of After Effects trickery here and there. Again, I got to utilize Mettle’s Free From Pro to bring a bit more life to the Disney Channel logo at the end, which turned out nice.
Well, it was only a matter of time that my work with Disney would have some sort of Marvel crossover.
Originally the Disney Channel wanted to really push the style into the comic world with many of the design elements pulling directly from different comic books. They also wanted to try to incorperate a bit of Roy Lichtenstein in there as well.
I went through a number fo designs before everything eventually worked its way into the final look and feel, with subtle hints of comic elements and heavy, impactful text and colors.
