Valins&Co. teamed up with Comedy Central to design custom 3D animated environments for the 2011 season of Comedy Central Presents. The eye-catching graphics were individually tailored to each comic and appear on 60' LED screens behind them on stage. The result is a larger than life, typographic backdrop that is graphic and informative yet does not distract from the fun and laughs.
"CCP is a paramount moment for these comedians," said Scott Valins, V&Co Creative Director. "We wanted the environment not only to introduce their brand of comedy to the world, but also to inundate the viewer with their names to create a familiarity."
"Valins&Co. successfully created rich backgrounds that supported the performers and visually marked another modern turn for our long running flagship stand-up series," added JoAnn Grigioni, Comedy Central Executive/VP.
Comedy Central Presents, which premiered in 1998, features half-hour performances by some of the top stand-up comics on the scene. The current season boasts appearances by Louis Katz, Mike Vecchione, and Jessi Klein, just to name a few. This project marks the second time that Valins&Co. collaborated with Comedy Central for CCP. Valins&Co. also created the show open and the graphic content for the LED screens featured in the 2010 season.
