Creative directors Lucas Christman and Jarik van Sluijs and motion-graphics and live-action producer Alexandra Hancock together have launched motion design studio Antenna Creative in Hollywood.
“As a truly hands-on team, we are passionate about what we do, and we strive to create work that is both meaningful and effective when it reaches its intended audience,” said the team in a statement.
The new studio will produce motion design assets and creative for feature films, TV, commercials, branded content, video games and experiential attraction, specializing in title-sequence design, broadcast design, branding, logos, experiential design, live-action production and editorial.
The trio already has worked on creative for clients such as including Amazon, Netflix, Marvel, Warner Bros., Universal, Sony Pictures, 20th Century Fox, Lionsgate, and most recently, for 2018 feature films Bad Times at the El Royale and Uncle Drew. Antenna’s current brand clients include Audi, Pepsi, Chevrolet, SoundFi and others.
Antenna’s first project as a new entity was designing a new logo and theatrical reveal for Lantern Entertainment. In 2018, Lantern acquired the titles formerly produced by The Weinstein Company.
“For the creation of our new corporate identity, we were seeking an agency that could meld the aesthetic and special kind of ‘glow’ that we all associate with going to the movies, along with a ‘digital feel’ that represents today’s ‘age of streaming.’ Antenna was the only agency that was able to deliver that for us,” said Matthew Cohen, executive vice president, marketing/creative affairs, for Lantern Entertainment, also in a statement. “They have the talent to interpret their clients’ vision without regurgitating what they’ve been told – they bring their own inspiration to the table.”
Antenna also produced the main title design sequence for feature film Miss Bala, directed by Catherine Hardwicke and starring Gina Rodriguez.
