Portland OR based VFX studio 9iFX, along with The Other House, had the privilege of designing, animating and delivering the key art for 2017 Emmys.
The Other House designed the branding for the Awards ceremony, and teamed up with 9iFX to develop the animation and simulations, bringing the sparkling trophy to life.
9iFX started with an animatic, locking in the camera motion. Particle simulations were used to create the dynamic sparkle effect. We modeled and animated the finished product in 4K 60fps footage.
