B1 Media Kicks Off Broadcast Design DivisionNoteworthy Production Designer Eyes New Arena
B1 has for the past four years focused primarily on DVD production design, providing interactive design for numerous DVD titles for the major Hollywood film studios including Disney, 20th Century-Fox, Artisan, Warner Bros, New Line Cinema, Dreamworks, Universal, etc.
B1 was the recipient of Best Game Design for ?Aladars Adventure, a 3D immersive set-top game on Disneys ?Dinosaur double DVD disc set. The studio was nominated for Best Interactive Feature and Best Innovation for ?Dinopedia, an interactive guide to dinosaurs, part of the new ?Disneypedia DVD feature . The studio was also nominated for the 2000 Video Premiere best menu design award for John Woos ?The Killer/Hard Boiled and recently delivered work on Buena Vistas ?Unbreakable, ?The Sixth Sense and Foxs ?Planet of the Apes set.
?Moving into the broadcast arena was a natural evolution for us, said Benjamin Zev, creative director and co-founder of B1, ?especially because immediately prior to launching B1 I was deeply involved in the creation of a good deal of broadcast design work.
Zevs previous experience in this arena included teaming on NBC-TVs local and network graphics, a package for the ABC-TV network, a package for Union Bank, design for the FIT cable channel, the World Combat Championship, and various international networks.
?B1/Broadcasts approach to creative design, together with a highly seasoned and dedicated staff of designers, artists and producers equipped with all the 3D and animation tools, allows us to segue into broadcast with new, multi-faceted concepts, said Zev.
?With the plethora of over the air and cable networks and the many new shows vying for audience attention, we believe B1/Broadcast brings some decidedly new ideas to the table, said Johnson. ?Our abilities in the interactive realm will bring fresh approaches to this end of the business.
