The Science Channel
LIVE ACTION AND DESIGN | PROMO | VFX
Satisfied with our work on the first season, The Science Channel once again came to Prologue to shoot a new promo for season two of Through the Wormhole. Once again working with Morgan Freeman, we set out to create a piece that raised the bar set by the first. The promo opens with Freeman standing in a bright, empty space, save for a lone Science Channel logo. Suddenly, that empty space is filled with a 3D universe, unlike our first promo, which only had small animations rendered within a live action setting. We continued with the concept of Freeman being able to manipulate the world around him, as seen in a shot in which bursts of energy emanating from Freeman’s hands seem to be controlling an entire star system. The final live-action scene of the promo features a close-up of Freeman’s face with a bokeh effect, as he gives the audience a few parting words. The piece comes to an end with a simple typographic billing block with the show’s title and airtime.
