Headlight Creates Magic for NY Chapter AICE Awards Show

Publish date:

New York-based Headlight Design + VFX creates the show open and 10 category interstitials for the 2008 Magic themed ceremonies of the NYC chapter of AICE (www.aice.org). Given the challenge from AICE as only a rough brief, the Headlight team chose to utilize hand drawn line art techniques to create unique, fantastic environments. In the open, playing cards appear from the sky and fall onto a table in what is the start of a magic trick. A black top hat appears and scoops up the cards. A finger taps on the hat, setting the trick into motion.
