Belief, an award-winning broadcast design and production studio, has designed and produced a new, 60 second TV image spot featuring music by Hoobastank, promoting the Starz Edge premium cable TV network. The new spot will be airing in early August across channels by also appearing on the Starz /Encore channels. Mike Goedecke, founder/executive creative director of Belief, made the announcement.

Continuing its relationship with Starz//Encore, Belief took an action packed edit and weaved dynamic graphics throughout the spot to set the tone and pace of Starz’s latest channel- Starz Edge.

“Big, bold and green is the signature look of this new channel, so we strived to create a high energy spot that would stay on brand, yet also be exciting and impactful,” said Goedecke.

“Through clever use of transitional type devises we managed to give the spot a sense of place at the same time as delivering the information we needed to. By projecting movie clips onto the typography, we could travel in and out of the edit with aggressive camera moves and never lose pace,” said Richard Gledhill, Belief’s Creative Director and designer.

“We asked Belief to help us with a quarterly image spot, which was the first one in our new look since the re-launch of our channels. They took our new brand direction to heart and they gave us back exactly what we needed - something fresh, exciting, and completely innovative. The tone and attitude were spot on and the visuals wowed us. Perfect for the image! We could not have been happier with the results. As always Belief came through,” said Che Che Mata, Starz/Encore Networks’ Senior VP Creative Services.

“This was a great project with lots of collaboration between Belief and Starz,” added Gregory Stacy, Belief Executive Producer. “They gave us a strong edit and let us have liberties with it to make it the best spot possible. I think the visuals speak for themselves, plus the Hoobastank sound track doesn’t hurt either.”
