Uncovering History

Motion Design - Direction - VFX

Working closely with Viasat World, we created a suite of six fully CGI idents for their history channel.

The creative campaign, “Uncovering History”, sees the channel’s iconic ‘H’ mark revealed in amongst a variety of mysterious scenes. The idents relate to different pillars of the channel’s key programming – World War II, the French revolution, lost civilisations, Russian space exploration and the industrial revolution.

A huge challenge both creatively and technically, a number of the scenes required an immense amount of detail – in particular, the shattering chandelier, simulated using Houdini, and the vast desert of lost civilisations, which saw us tackle a mass of particle simulations.
