Broadcast Animation- TMBA

This is an animation illustrating how an earthquake can cause a tsunami. This was produced for CBS and History. You can read more here:

http://www.tmba.tv/broadcastanimation/weathergraphics/what-casues-a-tsunami/

Projects like these often include 5-7 animations that are completed start to finish, in two weeks. The production schedule, speed, and efficiency are very important. Budget and the organization of the producer with the script and narration track timings are vital to the production schedule.

These are details that are often overlooked when considering the final graphics. There is often an incredible amount of pressure getting these graphics completed on time.

What Causes a Tsunami- TMBA created this 3d animation for the Discovery Channel to explain to viewers how shifting tectonic plates can cause a Tsunami.

As Japan struggles to recover from one of the worst earthquakes and resulting tsunamis in hundreds of years we couldn't help but look back on this show we completed for CBS Eye Too Productions.

The challenge was to explain to the viewers how tectonic plates work underneath the ocean floor. It's obvious that while producers had to spend ample time explaining the concept, there would be no reason to include such complicated, factual information without visuals to help them understand. CBS has relied on TMBA's animations in many situations like this and the tsunami show was no exception.

Tsunamis are a force to be reckoned with. And that goes for creating them in 3D as well.
Waves are impossible to put into a mathematical equation, which is at the root of all 3D software.

TMBA took the science of tectonic plate shifts and tsunamis and used it as reference to create a realistic, colorful scene that is as eerily beautiful as it is practical. As viewers watch plates rise and shift, stall and generate energy which is then released--giving a huge shove to a massive body of water--it becomes clear how these fearful, destructive waves get their start.

A great 3D animation from TMBA does what no other visual can--takes you inside the story to the places a camera can't reach, and explains what the camera can't teach.

Hurricane Storm Surge - TMBA 212-789-9077

This is a brief explanation of what hurricane storm surge is and how it often affects coastal communities. Also a very short timeline on this project for NBC/TWC. You can see more here: http://www.tmba.tv/broadcastanimation/weathergraphics/storm-surge/

The most successful and quickly executed projects usually begin with the producer having a draft of the script for the graphics that are in the show, a clear explanation of the concept that they want to illustrate and a realistic budget.

This medical animation shows the low resolution render for the final project. The project has developed from storyboards to script to wireframe animation and then to low res color animation with voice over narration and sound track.

A project like this is typically developed rapidly, once the client has approved each of the project phases. The most consuming aspect of a project like this are the additions and revisions through each phase of the project.

the final phase of the project is to render the final HD animation with minor edits for the timing and the voiceover / soundtrack levels.

Forensic animation is a category of 3D animation that is used for re-creating crime scenes, criminal events, accidents or disasters that have caused death. There is a wide range of uses for forensic computer animation, as forensic scientists work with investigators to gather all the relevant facts of a case and build a provable explanation of what happened and who might be at fault. http://www.tmba.tv/trial-graphics/forensic-animation/

TMBA Inc. | Animation Studio - By making use of the latest in 3d software and programming technology, a new educational series about animals is a stand out because it includes complex CGI usually seen in feature film work or larger television productions.

How does a Cheetah accelerate from 0 to 70 mph in 3 seconds, faster than a Porsche? Blue Whales are capable of consuming 7,000 lbs. of food a day, but how? The bigger question, how do you shoot footage of these events in a way that is relevant? These are just a few of the questions being explored and answered in a new television series ANIMAL SCIENCE.

TMBA was chosen to work on the project due to their experience with producing detailed, highly realistic CGI on extremely tight production deadlines. The creation of advanced 3d imagery, which can be time consuming, and is cost prohibitive for series with modest budgets and short production cycles. The images in these shows are being produced two per week, with an average animation running about 20 seconds.

The advantage of including CGI in a show like this is the ability to explain complex details about the animals quickly and highlight them visually for more impact. Many aspects of these animals' physiology, such as bone and muscle structure, would be impossible to shoot. One example is a segment about the unusual bone structure in the neck of a giraffe. By creating a realistic scene of the animal, and then showing an x-ray shot of the neck, one image can explain more than words can. Seeing the animal highlighted in 3d is a much more enticing and satisfying experience for younger audiences, especially those immersed in the world of video gaming.

TMBA Animations Inc., is an award winning New York Based 3D animation and Motion Graphics studio owned by veteran 3d artist Tim McGarvey. After honing his 3d skills at NBC News creating scenes for programs such as NBC's Dateline, McGarvey branched out to offer more his unique stylized CGI to a broader audience. His team of 3d artists has since worked on a wide range of projects for Discovery, History, CBS, NBC, Tru TV and dozens of independent television production companies over the past fifteen years.

5 Star: Steve D. "Easy to work with, totally "gets it". - Tim's 3d animations are incredibly detailed and accurate. Starting with little more than some sketches, a picture or two, and a description of the events, his animation studio was able to create 3D animations of enormously devastating engineering disasters that words fail to describe.
