“The Grand Finale” is inspired by and takes place during the end of a fireworks show but transformed in a digital and geometric environment.  The path of the firework is permanent forever seen in its glory as everything in this digital era. Each firework at its pinnacle will reveal a number and shape representing music and videos that the show is about. The chore-ography of the shapes and explosions will interact and play with the camera, revealing a colorful and festive spectacle of the Top 100 videos of 2011.

Concept 3 " Expanding Galaxy" Show Open

Frame 1

Just as the Big Bang theory suggests the creation of the universe. This highly graphic concept represents the expanding galaxy of the Top 100 videos of 2011. An iconic element or typography will appear in the middle of the screen and create a big bang to reveal a mini galaxy containing numbers of the countdown. The object and it’s orbital numbers will morph back and forward into iconic shapes over time until it forms into the Notarized logo
