Project Description

These MTV Classic IDs were conceptualized and executed by myself and HeyBeautifulJerk.nyc

This was a hybrid editorial/graphics job. I sifted through a daunting number of classic music videos searching for interesting/poignant pieces and then rotoscoped, layered, and edited them to create the basis for the spots. While I handled the video elements, composition and layering, Mark & Gina of HeyBeautifulJerk.nyc handled color and paint effects, final compositing, as well as creative direction.

As someone who was inspired as a child by the playfulness of the early MTV IDs It was truly exciting to create a set of brand new IDs celebrating classic MTV.

P.S. a set of hip hop inspired IDs are coming soon!
