For the 2009 Young Guns Awards, I was asked to design and direct titles, idents, and package graphics for the awards show night and DVD based on the theme of Award Show Sacrifice. The concept continues Young Guns’ annual tradition of an irreverent and sometimes controversial approach to their award promotions and branding. Taking some old awards that were laying around the office gathering dust, I came up with several grisly scenarios in which I could place various statues and plaques. After an intensive prop buying session (which included live insects) I created miniature tableaus based around 6 different awards, filmed these with a Canon 5D MkII, and edited down to a 1 minute opening sequence that combined all scenarios. Individual idents for the 6 categories of awards were also created. The titles package was very well received on the big screen at event host Publicis Mojo Sydney. Feedback received was overwhelmingly positive, and Kristian Barnes, one of the YGA founders, had this to say: “The intro and credits were brilliant both visually and musically. A growing number of creatives, locally & globally, are asking for copies which we will send out in the next few weeks”.
