We’re back with yet another Comic-Con feature (You didn’t think we were done, did you?),  this time showcasing some convention favorites and newcomers in television.

1. Season 4 of “Game of Thrones” was a VFX artist’s dream. This breakdown from Mackevision is proof that we are truly in the new Golden Age of TV.

2. “Penny Dreadful”, the new hit from Showtime, is headlining Comic-Con for the first time this year. This dark and moody opening sets a great tone for the late 19th century stories of supernatural abominations.

3. Also making an appearance at Comic-Con this year is fan favorite, “Bates Motel”, the “contemporary prequel” to Hitchcock’s Psycho.

4. “American Horror Story”, the anthology series from FX, is one of the most talked about shows on television and no doubt a chilling, crowd favorite at Comic-Con. Go Inside the Coven for an exclusive behind the scenes.

5. You can’t have Comic-Con without “The Walking Dead”! Although the new season isn’t due out until October, we can only imagine what they have cooked up for this year’s convention. In the mean time, check out this gory, 3D international promo from SuperEstudio.  The Walking Dead The Walking Dead (Superestudio)

E! partnered with creative agency Oishii Creative to create a fresh, current and edgy show package for Botched. Using a manic mix of typography, messaging, and imagery, Oishii Creative brought to life the chaos of visual imagery to convey how media bombards audiences with concepts of an “ideal” body image.

The Mill, Chicago, created the open and close for the new Cannes Lions Festival. They themed the open around fire and earth, and used ice and snow for the close. The themed motion graphics were projected onto screens within the event space. The motion graphics are awesome, but the edit and sound design deserve just as much credit!
