LA Galaxy: DJ Alesso Teaser Film

In a groundbreaking collaboration with LA Galaxy, RIOT has once again pushed the boundaries of creative innovation, this time for the much-anticipated 2024 season opener where multi-platinum DJ and producer Alesso performed during the match against Inter Miami CF at Dignity Health Sports Park. The concept was clear from the outset: to transport LA Galaxy into the cosmic realm, symbolizing a new era of unparalleled experiences both on and off the field. Our team envisioned a journey that was not just a visual feast but an immersive narrative, leading viewers through a galaxy of fantasy and space-driven imagery. From satellites navigating extreme space weather to the mysterious depths of anti-gravity liquids and rivers, every frame was meticulously crafted to captivate and intrigue. “This project stands as a testament to the magic that unfolds when artists are given the liberty to explore, create, and innovate without constraints.” Sound design played a pivotal role in this interstellar voyage, with meticulously synchronized shots leading to an explosive Alesso drop, propelling the teaser into the stratosphere. The music, provided by Alesso himself, was not just a backdrop but the heartbeat of the video, elevating the visual experience into a sensory explosion. The narrative was […]

Nutrafol x Sephora: Skin

We teamed up with Nutrafol and Sephora to bring their Skin Nutraceutical project to life, a journey that dared us to celebrate the unadulterated allure of natural beauty. This creative collaboration allowed us to zoom in closer than ever, capturing silent narratives woven into the essence of our subject’s visage. Nestled within the vibrant heart of NYC, our creative studio transformed into a crucible of creativity. Amidst our space, we rediscovered a treasure of portraiture—our mid-century modern studio’s original, 40s era skylight dome. This architectural relic became our source of natural illumination, casting a radiant glow that embraced our model in the soft embrace of perfectly diffused daylight. This unique lighting setup allowed us to capture the ephemeral charm of natural light. The outcome? A film where the genuine, ethereal allure of authenticity eclipses any commonplace, artificial brightness. This project hinged on the delicate balance of light and subtlety to highlight our model’s natural beauty, aligning seamlessly with the brand’s Skin palette. Clad in colors reflecting Nutrafol’s range, our model transcended being merely a campaign face to embody Nutrafol’s nurturing spirit. The fusion of visuals and narrative crafts a cohesive story. Enhanced by crisp, understated animations, we create an experience […]

February 11, 2024 in 2024, Art, Color, Creative, Design, Edited, FX, LA-Galaxy, Motion, OOH, Sound, Sports

In our latest collaboration with the LA Galaxy team, we set out to create a dynamic trailer for their social media platforms, sparking excitement among fans for the first home match of the 2024 season against Inter Miami CF. Utilizing stunning visuals of the cloud-enshrouded LA skyline, we designed a teaser that not only boosts LA Galaxy’s brand but also connects it with the infinite expanse of the cosmos and the limitless nature of dreams. This endeavor went beyond merely advertising a match; it aimed to craft a scene where the Galaxy ascends beyond the clouds.   In the video, we intricately blend custom motion graphics with deep textures, inspired by the vintage charm of old VHS tapes. The trailer flickers with glitches, evoking the feeling of rediscovering a cherished memory. This creative direction wasn’t just for style; it represents the enduring legacy of LA Galaxy. Originally crafted for landscape viewing, we adapted the project for various screen aspect ratios and sizes which posed distinct challenges. Yet, this process highlighted our dedication to quality and adaptability, ensuring the trailer’s effect resonated on every device.   This project showcases our creative studio’s forward-thinking approach to storytelling and production. By merging advanced […]

Nutrafol: Youtube & OTT Hair Wellness Campaign

In an ever-evolving realm of hair wellness, our collaboration with Nutrafol wasn’t merely about painting a narrative. It was a strategic endeavor designed to amplify brand awareness and, more crucially, propel sales. We harmoniously combined advanced cinematography with evocative narratives, producing a series of films that resonate with the essence of holistic hair health. At the campaign’s core lay dual objectives: augmenting brand visibility and driving sales. While initially conceptualized for YouTube, the films’ unprecedented success warranted their evolution into OTT versions, which have also been resonating powerfully with audiences. Nutrafol Hair Wellness Campaign: A Fusion of Storytelling and Cinematic Mastery The magic truly unfolded behind the scenes. With the Nutrafol team present at our studios, every idea, every frame, and every soundbite was a collaboration. From conceptualization in our cyclorama studios to recording distinct voice-overs and CTAs in our specialized vocal booth, every step was a dance of innovation and cohesion. Interestingly, while the same talents lent their voices in both scenarios, the nuanced audio quality difference between the narrative and CTAs added a layer of sophistication. What sets these films apart in the crowded landscape of wellness advertising? Our inspiration was drawn from fashion films, and it reflects in […]

LA Galaxy: Rose Bowl Campaign

2023 was the start of our creative journey with Major League Soccer superstars, LA Galaxy. Our original creation was an opening trailer for the season which highlighted the rivalry between LA Galaxy and LAFC while also letting the fans know that this game would be happening where it all began for LA Galaxy – at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA. Due to extreme weather conditions, the game was called off at the last moment and was rescheduled for independence day. To amplify the rivalry once more, we were tasked with creating a variety of campaign assets for the rescheduled Rose Bowl Stadium game and continue where we left off earlier in the season. For this campaign we created three different films: Rose Bowl Ticket Push Trailer: The first of our trailers, the intent of this film was to build up hype before the big game while also serving as a final ticket sales push to help sell out the Rose Bowl game. Our film successfully helped make that happen! Match Day -1 Hype Film: A reminder that tomorrow was the day that something historic was going to happen. In Stadium / Broadcast Hype Film: This film was played in […]

Coachtopia: Logo Stings

As part of our multi-year collaborations with Coach’s new sustainability focused sub brand, Coachtopia, we were given the very rare but beautifully awesome task of creating whatever we wanted! The brief was simple, create as many different logo stings as we could for Coachtopia in a month with the specific point of reference being how MTV did it in the 90’s! Not every day, you get such an awesome and open ended brief but it was one we were excited to tackle particularly as logo stings will become a main stay in Coachtopia’s visual identity and all the content they create in the future. This really was the opportunity for us to put the RIOT stamp on the Coachtopia brand for the foreseeable future. Our creative freedom was truly unleashed with these logo creations. We attempted to make logos for every personality type, with some being made with the intention of being at the start of films, some at the end and some that you can split up and tell the story as a book end. Our mix of 21 hand drawn, cute, glitchy, retro, and trippy Coachtopia logos have wild colors, cool motions and deep texture to each tell […]
