We worked closely with Director Jason Sklaver and Senior Producer Chris Gidez to create the broadcast package for this reality show about dates that have gone horribly wrong - currently airing on Investigation Discovery.
Our first step was to board out the show open and then time things out in an animatic.
We knew that the tone of the show would be fairly dark and ominous with a palette of “wine, sex, and death” from initial conference calls. From the start, we had in mind the perfect choice of music in Cincinnati’s own, Brothers Fighting. With a general direction and music choice, our next step was to create a title lock up for the show.
When it came time to shoot the photographic element of the intro, we were presented with the opportunity to officially break in the S77 infinity photo sweep. Check out some behind the scenes images of the Dates From Hell photo shoot:
