April 5, 2010

These are my temporary geometry reference objects up until now. Designs for future objects as well as access to maya are now organized so my progress should speed ahead from this point on. The picture consists of ruff versions of a building, a giant microphone, a neon sign, a television, a bowling pin and a truck.

Comedy Channel Ident Concept Sketch 4_Adam Cook

April 5, 2010

Last concept sketch before first presentation to the Comedy Channel representative. It’s set at a level more similar to the current Comedy Channel ident’s so it is more relatable, this is also a camera angle I plan on using. Still focusing around the idea of this mammoth tower of TV’s and comedy items, being the central location where all things comedy go. The tower represents a metaphoric representation of the Comedy Channel head quarters.

Burnse – Week 4 Concept

Concept presented to Comedy Channel representative. A small crane totters onscreen and smashes the pile of forgotten comedy items over the city which blooms into colour and life as it hits.

Burnse’s Concept – Week 3

March 22, 2010

My newly updated concept is based on theme of a tower of comedic elements. Here we have a tower of outdated comedy elements, discarded in a heap, which the c’fer wrecking ball then comes through and destroys. Basically trying to say that any comedy is outdated compared to the Comedy Channel/Comedy Channel blows away the competition.
