For this promo for Vietnam War Month on the History Channel, I wanted the look to be gritty but still maintain a sense of dignity as well as respect for the subject matter. I created the logo in Photoshop using various brushes. The logo text doubles as a matte for some war footage, slowed down 50% using the After Effects Timewarp effect. The overall animation is a simple camera move, with a combination of 3D lights and animated Levels revealing the honor wall only towards the end of the move, adding drama.
