Shine was chosen to redesign and animate the classic MGM theatrical logo in stereoscopic 3D. This is the first time the Metro Goldwyn Mayer logo and Leo the lion have been created in 3D stereo. To add dimension, Shine modeled a close up of Leo’s eye creating an element to pull back through for a dramatic reveal of the lion, laurels and filmstrip. All the elements of the logo were re-built in 3D, and then placed on different planes to add dimensional layers and drama to one of the most iconic marks in film history.
