The FLYfx game has been improved...

We almost hate to announce it but we can't resist spilling the beans - "the FLYfx game" has been updated: - the idea is that you are supposed to find the update by accident. Why? Because we are obsessed with the "easter egg" concept - we love it when features are found by stumbling upon them (we are very silly), but again, we simply can't resist. While we are spilling beans, we can add this... the DVD of our demo reel might contain more than meets the eye, maybe, but we are not gonna say any more than that.

As far as the game goes, here's a clue, to beat level three, you probably have to find the secret way to do it or you will lose to this level.

FLYfx tracks and comps cellphone screen for Vh1 and Verizon.

This tricky little tracking job was nailed perfectly with planar tracking provided in one of our favorite apps, Mocha - by Imagineer - for more info. FLYfx's Ralph Scaglione made short work of this two sided tracking job with perfect results. "A job like this you know in two seconds that you want to employ one of the imagineer tools like Mocha. We banged this baby out in no time flat" says Ralph, "with plenty of time left over for finesse." Fun times were had by all.

FLYfx teams up with SlamMedia for MySuit

FLYfx called on the expertise of Glen Hoffman and SlamMedia Group when Marke Communications wanted the soup to nuts solution for creating six fun and informative spots for MySuit. Hoffman shot using P2 files recorded to a firestore then edited on Final Cut Pro. FLYfx's Ralph Scaglione imported xml files and conformed on Smoke 2010 2K. Says Scaglione: "It was pure heaven, soft importing P2 files then working with the batch mode right in the timeline with over 80 live HD layers for the final comps(!)." Scaglione added "What a ride!"

We love this project AND the company MySuit! Here's what they do - you go in once to get measured, then leave the store and head home to custom build your own suit -- online! What a cool idea! Thanks MySuit!!!

Visit them online at - you'll be glad you did.

FLYfx tracks new labels onto Mazola.

FLYfx lent a hand to Millennium Creative Group when they needed to replace a label in their Mazola Vegetable Plus commercial. We made short work of it.

Brand New Bike creates fx for Chiller at FLYfx.

Brand New Bike's John Jamilkowski worked closely with FLYfx's lead compositor, Ralph Scaglione, to create graphic elements for the Chiller network's Monday night Anime block. Jamilkowski's vision was to emulate the bleeding text treatment seen on the opening titles in the 2004 Universal Studios remake of "Dawn of the Dead". Scaglione also created the tune-in graphics which involved projecting anime images onto individual 3D letters that spelled the name of the programming block "Ani-Monday".

Cool stuff.

The PhD Project graphics.

FLYfx teamed up with Ned Steele's MediaImpact and editor Dan Bosko to create graphics for "The PhD Project", an amazing organization that encourages minority business people to become college professors. "Diversity in front of the classroom leads to diversity in the classroom and beyond." We were thrilled and inspired to work with such an amazing organization.

Thanks guys!!!
