Great 3D Open Animation for MLB Quick PItch

This is the open for MLB Network's Quick Pitch, which is a nightly baseball highlight sow on MLB Network. They did at recreating an old-fashioned ballpark scoreboard in 3D and mixing it with video elements. The pacing of the animation to the sound is done very well. This shows the importance of editing a sequence outside of your 3D animation program.

This video also uses a variety of different camera movements for each clip. The wide spectrum of shots prevents the shots from appearing tedious and repetitive and helps keep the intensity elevated.

Another part of this open that impresses me is the use of skins and textures to really make the 3D objects "pop". Textures and skins add the attention to detail that can make an object truly look realistic.
