Motion Path, Bigstudios join forces


HandshakeAward-winning design agencies Motion Path and Bigstudios announced a partnership to provide comprehensive, state-of-the-art graphics for major broadcast productions. By combining Motion Path’s industry-leading design expertise in data-driven, real-time graphics with Bigstudios’ centers of excellence in motion graphics, animation, and branding, the two companies will be able to offer clients a one-stop shop covering all aspects of motion design and multiple-platform, data-driven, real-time graphics.

Motion Path is a creative services provider that has designed real-time and 3D graphics for some of television’s highest profile broadcasts, including Super Bowl XXXIII, U.S. presidential elections, and the newscasts of practically every major news network. As one of North America’s most experienced design and animation studios, Bigstudios has designed motion graphics for myriad broadcasters, from MTV to ESPN. Its portfolio of programming includes multiple Super Bowls, NCAA Final Four, Major League Baseball, ESPN Monday Night Football, and prime-time news for CBS and ABC. The combined companies offer more than three decades of experience in motion graphics and visual effects; network branding and show packages; real-time, data-driven graphics on any platform (e.g. Orad, Vizrt, ChyronHego); and custom digital displays of any scale, from sets to malls to stadiums.

After working together on numerous ad hoc projects — most recently, the high-profile and hugely successful launch of the NASH Football Network, the inaugural network for the Russian Football Premier League (RFPL) — Motion Path and Bigstudios saw an opportunity to formalize their relationship to offer broadcasters a world-class, turnkey graphics solution that previously could only be obtained from multiple vendors. Through the partnership, the two studios will be able to provide a comprehensive service package that includes motion graphics, data-driven graphics, production logic, and data integration and implementation. In addition, by combining their contacts and client base, Motion Path and Bigstudios will be able to capitalize on opportunities in the broader international marketplace.
