Sky Sports News HQ – Animated LED wall and lightboxes

Screen grabs of one of my latests projects, a set of animated, and still backdrops for Sky Sports News HQ, which relaunched with a new set on August 12th. The scene is based on designs initially prepared by Jago Design (formerly BDA) and portrays a much more open architecture than my previous design from 2011.

The architectural details and lighting within the scene are a direct continuation of the designs for the physical studio and newsroom spaces.

ABC Breakfast News and ABC 7PM News

ABC Breakfast, which went live this morning, January 27, 2014 and features a pair of animated backdrops that I designed and prepared. The scene is a hybrid view combining architecture from Melbourne and Sydney and a large chunk of the Yarra River.

Prepared in parallel with the Breakfast backdrops was a version for the 7PM news bulletins from Melbourne. This is a more straightforward cityscape view of Melbourne.

Both projects utilise the work of local photographer, Ollie West, to which we applied extensive manipulation, including full sky and digital water replacements and the addition of animated elements including cars and lights.

These will be the first of a batch of designs that Lightwell are working on for ABC throughout the first quarter of 2014.
