Twitch.tv is providing live coverage of a huge video game tournament called The Supernova Cup. This tournament features the world’s best DotA 2 players and is basically Coachella for fans of the game. They will be running promos for their coverage (Supernova footage) as pre-roll ads on their streams and needed a design for the motion graphics on the promo. They were looking for a cool way of transitioning from footage of the tournament to a title Card that contains tune-in information. Since their demographic is hardcore gamers I used a light slash that echoed video game FX along with a treated clip of additional footage and a sliding transition pane. Arcana, a DoTA character with fire powers ties that into the theme of Supernova, is revealed by footage and it pulls back to the title card that uses bright colors to lead the eye around the screen.
