I developed the overall concept and produced the graphic package and pilot episode for "The Buzz", HBO's prolific entertainment-news capsule, back in 2001. The original graphics used 3-D animation technology which was still new back in 2001 but now looks a little silly - check it out (in orange) below. The graphics have gone through various iterations since then, from very fancy, to their current stripped-down look, adapted to suit the format's power in the event-hungry social space. Turnaround time, from shoot to broadcast, is usually 24-48 hours.  We used to shoot them with one camera now we use as many as five. The Buzz does not seem to wear off ...
