Did you guys ever hear about that awesome Glam Power Speed Hair Death Metal Band from the 80s named “GOAT”? Man, they had such a killer logo. That I just invented. I also invented that band. Just now. In my head. But seriously, I would listen to them, if they had a stylin’ brand image like this.

There were 4 steps in the production on this one.

  1. Playing with Photoshop to create an original greyscale word with the “Flat Fan” brushes - which were new to me. I’m going to have to practice some more (cough) calligraphy like this in the future.
  2. Taking that mask and using as a mask on a plane in Blender, then moving some Magenta and Cyan lights around behind that mask, shining toward the camera - This is where most of the animation came from.
  3. OMG SO MUCH POST PROCESSING AND COMPOSITING . This is what added the space and the rainbows and the blings and the VHS look. This part was done 100% In the Blender compositor.
  4. Added the scan-line pattern in Overlay mode at 30% opacity in Photoshop, and saved as GIF.

My inspirations for this piece were the Daft Punk “Discovery” Album Cover, and “Love” by UziCopter. I freakin’ LOVE what uzicopter did with the colors on that one.

Retrospectively, I searched for a band named Goat. Turns out they are Swedish - EDIT - and their music is not exactly my style, but due to the quick reply,¬†apparently¬†it’s totally DaveBees’ jam. Right on.
