Behind the original HBO movie intro

Bungie to do something cool for one lucky fan, but we really don't know what it is yet

This is part of a thread on BBG about DVNO, a new video from Justice designed to look like the TV intros from the 1980s and early 1990s. This video describes how they made the original bumper for HBO — the video that played before every movie and that signaled the start of big things back when I was 12 or 13. Whereas now you’d just CG this in a week, these guys spent weeks building a detailed, beautiful model of a city by hand.

Check out the stargate effect at about 6 minutes. My parents never got premium cable and just hearing this music before a movie at a friend’s house signaled “something big is about to happen, so you’d better watch.” I haven’t seen anything like this since.
