AOL licenses Full Mental Jacket Virtual SetUsed for ?Time Out,? new broadband sports show (July 14, 2004)
Full Mental Jacket, which specializes in realtime visual effects for broadcast and film, has licensed one of it's high quality virtual sets to Studio AOL Los Angeles for an online show called ?Time Out" hosted by award winning sports journalist Roy Firestone. The show is available exclusively to AOL for Broadband and dialup customers.
Full Mental Jacket Creative Director Ronen Lasry and Studio AOL Producer Christian Kennel chose a set from Full Mental Jacket virtual set library and modifications were made to the set in order to create the unique look and feel of this show.
"After attending NAB this past Spring and seeing Full Mental Jacket's showcase reel, we were convinced that virtual sets can no longer be ignored" says Kennel. "The key is to find a company like FMJ that can harness the technology to it's fullest and avoid the common pitfalls which expose subpar work," he adds.
Graphics and show logos were added live on set and in real-time. Special attention was paid to the light levels and saturation levels in order to compensate for the color shifts and banding that come from compressing and streaming video.
Shooting took place at Production Group Studios in Hollywood, CA.
