LOS ANGELES, Sept. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Alexis Nelson, Owner and Executive Producer of HOAX Films, a Los Angeles, California and Savannah, Georgia digital production studio, is nominated for an EMMY for Outstanding Graphic Design & Art Direction for "Ultimate Guide to the Presidents", produced by (Executive Producers) Karga Seven Pictures for The History Channel. The Gala will be held September 30, 2014 at New York City's Lincoln Center.
"Ultimate Guide to the Presidents" is an eight-hour miniseries that follows the 43 men who have served as President of the United States, using extensive historical documentation including archival footage and photographs. With creative imagery and animation, the show illustrates the responsibilities, events, challenges, and feats of these America's leaders. The graphics were created under the direction of Production Company Karga 7, and Producer Fikret Manoglu.
"This is a huge honor," says Nelson. "We wanted to try a new take on bringing history to life that makes it more understandable and visually appealing. A combination of 2D and 3D processes allowed us to pull historical documents and imagery apart, then animate them, creating narrative stories while keeping the integrity of the sources.
I'm thrilled that the distinctive style and graphics are being recognized. This is a great start for HOAX's current expansion of integrating development and production into our current post production pipeline."
Although this would be their first EMMY, their film production, CG and VFX efforts on the futuristic website, MEBO Campus (www.regeneration2014.com) have lead to a plethora of recognition, including six Davey Awards, six W3 Awards, four Communicator Awards, two IAC Awards and an Interactive Media Award.
MEBO Campus was developed under Kevin Xu's direction, the entrepreneurial CEO of MEBO International, a company exclusively focused on managing the intellectual properties of organ regeneration science related to its founder, Dr. Rongxiang Xu. The aim of the website is to educate the Western world about the wonders of organ regeneration science through experience.
HOAX Films is a digital production studio known for it's work on campaigns for Game of Thrones, Harry Potter 7, feature films like Fast 5, Zombeavers, Spike TV's Deadliest Warrior, and music videos for Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Little Dragon, and Absolut Vodka.
