VFX students bring festive cheer to Mustard TV viewers
VFX students brought some Christmas cheer to Mustard TV viewers by creating some short festive stings for the channel to run between programmes in December 2016. Mustard TV Ltd is a local television station which broadcasts to an audience of over 400,000 people. VFX students worked in teams to create the 5-10 second long sections that featured computer generated snow globes, cityscapes, snowflakes and the Mustard TV logo. Saint John Walker, VFX Course Leader said “Mustard TV are always open to students to showcase their talents, and this was a great exercise in giving them a ‘real’ brief to work from. We received three final stings which aired continuously throughout the festive period to give Mustard that extra bit of Christmas sparkle. We hope to continue to work with the VFX course on new content for Mustard in the future.” Said Graham Perrin, Presentation Manager at Mustard TV. “This was a great challenge for our second year students to think creatively about how to bring their VFX skills to the Mustard TV brand. We hope a few of them may want to work in TV later, so this was a great introduction”.
