The campaign's driving message, "The Future Is Now," celebrates the new generation of golf superstars. The :30 spots feature rapid-fire cuts of live-action paired with dynamic design and graphics highlighting each play- er's story. Fox Sports conceived and produced the campaign in collabora- tion with Mocean. Mocean wrote, designed, edited and finished the pieces, including the sound design and music. The project was edited inside Avid Media Composer. Graphics were created using After Effects, Photoshop and Illustrator, as well as Maxon Cinema 4D. Resolve was used for color. SYFY RECEIVES AUDIO REFRESH NEW YORK — Figure and Groove ( recently rebrand SyFy's network audio, giving it a big, ambient and modern cinematic sound without going the route of a classical orchestra. Composers Neil and Matthew de Luca collaborated on the refresh, which uses sound to create the feeling of vastness beyond the on-screen imagery, and numerous macro shots. Rather than create music that relies on a melody, the team approached the project with the goal of creating atmospheric and cinematic sounds. Because SyFy uses lots of photoreal CG imagery, Figure and Groove stayed away from synthetic sounds that would appear overly manufactured. Instead, they went with organic, natural elements. The studio created approximately 50 different elements as part of the package, including logo animations, the Syfy Studio Open, a Syfy Films track that was mixed in stereo and 5.1 for cinema use. They relied on Avid Pro Tools and Native Instruments' Kontakt 5 sample engine.

Elements in the package include the main title, bumpers, lower-thirds and backgrounds, which were created using Adobe's suite, Apple's Final Cut Pro and Maxon Cinema 4D. LEFTCHANNEL DESIGNS FASHION WEEK CAMPAIGN FOR E!

Scirocco and his team were able to build on the design elements that had been created in the fall to deliver a piece that would focus on the energy and excitement of the new event, while still incorporating the design language created in 2015. The studio concepted an augmented visual rope piece, taking viewers from backstage to the city streets, to parties, and finally the runway.
