Half asleep one morning, I arrived at the idea of using a radar display screen as a visual device to convey the concept of continuous updating. It was an especially exciting solution because of how perfectly it fit into the brand motif of Pigeons & Planes. I built the elements, and took my lo-if vision to animator Thomas Wilson. Thomas expertly brought the graphics to life, and pushed it even further with the zoom effect. When he was done with everything, it was hard to believe the host Jinx wasn't actually in a control room with buzzing, blinking machinery. The warbled theme song I created from old synth plugins on MIDI keyboard, some rererecording, and pitch adjustment.
