Tankard Curling Graphics
Animated opener and lower thirds for live broadcast.
The challenge for creating the opener was coming up with the concept. The event itself doesn’t mesh with the typical flashy sci-fi sports opener. But there is a lot of history there. So I decided to take the game back to its roots.
I remembered curling on a pond near my grandfather’s house when I was younger, and I wanted to re-create that feeling. Just a few families getting together and having a great time outdoors.
The music, with its celtic flair, lends itself to the heritage while still keeping the energy high for the event.
Live graphics were built in Ross Xpression, linked to a custom-built Dashboard interface. (Click here to download the interface)
