Sesame Street


At Viewstream, we are not all business. Well, we are, but sometimes we like to take a breather from the rat race and take on fun projects that we find fulfilling and worthwhile. So when we got a call from Sesame Street to do a couple shorts for the show, we were both honored and stoked. Pretty much everyone at Viewstream HQ has harbored dreams of being on Sesame Street at one point or another in our lives. In fact, one of our employees was actually on Sesame Street back in ’75. It was a homecoming, in a way. So how could we pass it up?

Doing what we do best, we took on the creative direction, the compositing, and the motion graphics for more than forty four shots in (1080p) HD format. The special effects created a colorful, animated backdrop perfect for kids to enjoy and learn from.

Though we are certainly not experts on the subject matter, the first short explained how the human brain helps us perform day-to-day functions. It also gave us the chance to show the world our zany, twisted view of San Francisco.

The second segment was a noir tale of a distressed woman on the search for a triangle. In desperation, she requests the services of a private gumshoe (not Sherlock Hemlock, but this guy would do), who helps her find triangles all over the place. Even James Blunt got in on the triangle action that episode!

These videos just aired on PBS, so we’ve got public television under our belts. Now back to those product demos!
