Buck LA X-Play, First Boards Awards.

Try saying that 3 times fast. I’m really sick, so this will only be short:


Buck LA presents G4 Networks’ X-Play.

Following on from the great ‘Anime’ spots they did a while back (which I can’t seem to get a link for, sorry), Buck have produced a similarly styled opener for X-Play. Both hosts are tracked through various genres of game and combat through some clever transitions and grading.

First Boards Awards winners announced.

This month’s issue of Boards Magazine features all winners and finalists of the ‘First Boards Awards’, ranging across Directors, Editors, Composers, Animators and Motion Graphics/Designers. Our congratulations to them all.

Personally, I’m really happy to see Tim Kentley of XYZ studios as winner of the Motion Graphics/Designers category. Timo gave me my first chance to do professional Motion work and he, and the rest of the team at XYZ, do really great work and thoroughly deserve it.

Check out the entire list here.

Great news Jon thanks for pointing that out

That Honda “I want one� ad really did it for him and XYZ.

This link has an interview with Tim which he talks about the process of the project. Have a read it’s quite interesting and inspiring

The ad was also a nominee in last years Tween Highlights if anyone recalls


I Luv all BUCK works,, !!!


you forgot an S in your link to XYZ
proper link is:
cheers, keep up good work,
will try and do same


Thanks. The “s” has been successfully inserted.


The X-play piece is great. From this and the other anime-style G4 spots, I hope that starts to become their niche. IMO, most of their other work lacks soul.
