The 4th Dimension

Coming in the near future, the E82 universe will expand beyond the realms of static art, musical compilation, historical dissertation and philosophic analysis to include animated simulations, and a host of other projects expressed in the forth dimension (time).

In order to properly showcase this new form of expression, "E82 Films" had to have its own motion picture-style logo and here are the results…

Logo Description:

Beginning at the outermost edge of the universe, we journey through the spiraling heart of the "Epcot Galaxy" passing the park's original set of nine pavilion logos all coalescing together to explode outwards becoming the Progress City Supernova on the edge of which orbits majestic Spaceship Earth.

 

UPDATE:

The E82 Films Logo has become the latest Case Study on the JLH Omni Blog!

Logo Series - Sea Base Alpha

In tribute to Paul Gerber’s austerely beautiful “The Sea”, this background depicts the final climatic frames of the film that served as the overture to The Living Seas pavilion. A film in which the last scene speculatively illustrates a futuristic underwater base with a proto-computer-generated model that builds to this image that dramatically transitions into the real “Hydrolators” that transport guests to Sea Base Alpha.
An updated logo of Sea Base Alpha hallmarks the lower portion of the background, which portrays one of the more deeply transcendent objectives of The Living ­­­Seas — interspecies understanding and cooperation.

Designer Notes:

This is actually the culmination of two separate projects. The first, a recreation of the original 1986 CG “wireframe” ending of “The Sea, and the second, a vectorization and (an E82 style) modernization of Sea Base Alpha’s official logo.

The “Wireframe” was reconstructed in vector format using several aligned frames from a low-res source demo of the film. In order to maintain blueprint-like accuracy (and my own sanity) the various elements (doors, railings, rockwork, etc.) were originally color-coded before receiving its final monochromatic treatment.

The SBA Logo was first painstaking vector-traced from a source prop originally used in the attraction, including the original 1986 color scheme. Then was re-colored and “dimensionalized” utilizing only gradients that (in most cases) contain color swatches from the original.
