This is the animated logo for the title sequence of “Stars, Stunts, Action,” a 13 episode, 60 minute syndicated series recently acquired by Fremantle. “Stars, Stunts, Action” is a behind-the-scenes exposé of how Hollywood’s action sequences are made. The show is hosted by four industry veterans specializing in the major elements of making action films.

The producers desired an epic, “hero shot” of the four hosts incorporated into the title sequence. Due to time constraints, the “hero shot” was not taken on a green screen…which would have been ideal. Instead, the angle of the camera was adjusted and the shot was taken with a clear, southern California sky as the backdrop. The sky provided enough information to pull a key for the composite. The video was shot in 720p on a Panasonic HVX. The animation was composited using Adobe “After Effects” and Zaxwerks “Invigorator Pro.”
