Process of combining variety of historical events and fantasy became the primary inspirational moment during work. What could be more exciting than time travel? Treasures of huge libraries that contain great amount of knowledge, wouldn’t make you feel indifferent. Freedom of charming books, which can lead through time and space in mind is exciting. Attractive, colorful, unrepeatable patterns of different nations and cultures force to make amazing, ancestors worthy, pieces of art as well.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The basic concept of the IDs is exiting and breathtaking travelling through space-time portals. Camera flies through the energy field, historical era changes or viewer gets in a dimension filled with objects according to the theme of the ID. External surface of the circle is the portal, which is covered by symbols from different historical eras. And the Cyrillic letter inside rotates like a pointer on clocks.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Setting perfectly fits into the idea of the "History" channel and interacts with the logo. At the beginning there is a space, in which, known historical actions are happening. While camera is getting out of the portal, the cyrillic letter that is a part of the logo rotates or appears. Portals and the letter are stylized according to the certain historical era. Beneath the logo the "History channel" shows up. 6 thematic IDs, which tell viewer about the theme of the following plots, are the next part.
