Discovery Channel invited us for the design of the show open for their brand-new tv show Expedition X. Together with production company Ping Pong we decided to develop a mysterious world waiting to be explored and have the hosts walk through a misty forest at night searching for the unknown. To achieve this idea we shot live-action footage of the two hosts in the studio and combined that footage with a CGI forest. The exploration culminates in a powerful logo reveal.
In Expedition X Scientist Phil Torres and paranormal researcher Jessica Chobot investigate reports of supernatural encounters, mysterious creatures, and astonishing extraterrestrial phenomena. The team is taking viewers to the stranger side of the unknown.
