We created this fun, young and edgy graphics package for the Nickelodeon giveaway for their band Big Time Rush!
The team at Roger spent this Sunday at the Downtown Independent theater where Creative Director, Terry Lee premiered his short film ‘Cypress Valley’ at second annual LA Film + Music Weekend.
The festival included three days of programming including award-winning features, short films, and documentaries as well as live music and after parties. Celebrities and up-and-comers alike walked the red carpet to enjoy their work on the big screen.
Terry (writer/director) was joined by Kiel Johnson (writer/art director) and Devon Tsuono (Cypress College Professor) for a Q&A following the screening where they talked about everything from how the project came together to the late nights spent at Roger in the final weeks to wrap the project for it’s Premiere. Click the photo below for some stills of the premiere and watch the trailer here.
Come out this Sunday (3/25) and check out the premiere of Cypress Valley High plus a Q&A by Terry Lee and Kiel Johnson the Downtown Independent!
Our good buddy Crabbey recently collaborated with the talented crew of We’re Still Friends for this epic homage to the bacon wrapped hot dogs and the women who make them. Check it out here…
Here is a montage of a few projects we labored over recently, we hope you enjoy!
Roger was very bubbly about getting the opportunity to team up with MTV and production co. Snackaholic for the “It Gets Better” special for MTV. Roger created the show open and graphics packages for the special that aired on MTV on Feb. 21. Dan Savage created itgetsbetter.org in response to the epidemic of suicide amongst gay teens. He wanted to share the message with gay teens that life GETS BETTER after school and that there are thousands of people out there that care about them and can show proof that life DOES get better. The internet sensation on Youtube.com and itgetsbetter.org has united people from all over to share their story. Even President Obama has sent a message!
Roger has worked with quite a few talented folks over the years, most of them are still working with us today on projects that bring our talents together under one roof. Then there are those that move on, literally, to like Brazil, and start a motion graphics school. We recently caught up with our friend Paulo Silva “Blob”. who did just that.Tap in to his brain and read all about his journey here…
Team Roger was hired by advertising agency Mother NY to create a fun, quirky animation for a JC Penney spot in December. Terry and Janice took a night drive to the JC Penney store at a mammoth-sized mall in Arcadia to watch our work in action on a wall of TVs surrounded by beds on display. Though taking a nap on a lovely bed was enticing, Terry and Janice instead hobnobbed with the folks from Interrogate and Mother while the crew worked their magic. What came out of it was pretty funny, but don’t blink or you might miss our contribution!
We are absolutely in love with this video by the art department of Bethany Lutheran College!
The film also came along with a hand crafted box of candy…How sweet! Check it out here.
Seth Weiner, a Sci-arc graduate and long time friend of Roger, recently collaborated on an installation at the Standard Hotel as part of the on going PST exhibits happening in Los Angeles.
Turns out, we have been following Seth’s work for a while. Take a moment to read our Q&A session with Seth where we tap in to his experiences as a fine artist who found his niche through an Architectural school, and his journey from Michigan to the thriving LA art scene as a working fine artist. He will share with you his secrets of past, present, and still to come projects… Read the full article here:
