Epic Cycle Tour
- Epic Cycle Tour
This is part of a broadcast package for NBC's Epic Cycle Tour. Rejoins, transitions, lower thirds and bugs. Some modeling and camera moves in Cinema 4D with the environments created in Photoshop and After Effects. Trapcode Particular for the tire tracks and dirt.The story behind this project starts in San Francisco several years ago. I was about to finish school at Ex'pression College and had applied for an internship at Gunshop. In addition to applying online and emailing the standard cover letter, resume and link to my reel, I decided to hand deliver a copy. I arrived unannounced and got buzzed into the building from the call box outside.When I opened to the door, I was met by the production coordinator Rimma. I introduced myself, mentioned that I'd applied for the internship and wanted to leave a printed copy of my resume and a DVD with my reel. I had an interview a week later and ended up getting the internship, which led to a full-time position at Gunshop. (I learned later that showing up that day helped get me the interview.)Fast forward to summer of 2011. I am serious about moving to New York and decide to try it on for size for the month of July. I sublet my friend Veanne's apartment in Crown Heights and explore the city, going to office parties, meetups and catching up with old classmates and friends. I make a list of companies I want to talk to and create a Google map with the locations of their offices (yeah, I did that).Several months before, I was watching Food, Inc. and sat through the credits to find out who did the animated sequences in the film. It was Bigstar and I put them on my list.One of my first mornings in New York, I took a walk on the High Line and ended up in Chelsea. I pulled my Google map up on my phone and noticed that I was just a few blocks from Bigstar's office. So off I went.I got to the building, walked up one flight of stair and knocked on the door. I walked in and a woman turns around in her chair. It's Rimma! Major deja vu! She had moved to New York just a month after we had met that day at Gunshop under strangely similar circumstances.When I moved to New York in the fall, I got back in touch with Rimma and in November, I worked at Bigstar on this project.PRODUCTION COMPANY: BigstarCREDITS: Phil Bischell, Adrian Letechipia, Ned Piyadarakorn, Brandon Sugiyama
