With the Oscars taking place a couple of nights back, the buzz surrounding the event and the movies is still fresh. For Charlie Rose ‘Oscars Special’, Al Boardman was asked to produce the animated opening sequence. The one minute animated intro sequence features 8 Oscar nominated films with actors and directors that had previously appeared on the Charlie Rose show. The piece originally aired on PBS on 27th February 2014 a few nights before the Academy Awards event, and the look Boardman created for it is great. Capitalizing on the flat design look that is so popular right now Boardman captures the essence of the films with fluid transitions, smooth animation, and solid sound design supporting each sequence.
