Comedy can be a force to be reckoned with, a point Creative Group makes clear with the stark new show open for the P. Diddy Presents the Bad Boys of Comedy series produced by Latham Entertainment for HBO. Creative Group applied its impressive range of capabilities, from concept to set design to the final edit, making a strong statement for the shows June debut.
The P. Diddy Presents open sees Sean P. Diddy Combs striding through an expansive space, where the exclusive use of red, black and white colors set a timelessly minimalist tone. The words Risky, Dangerous, and Groundbreaking are rear-projected on a giant video wall backing the set, interspersed with stylishly animated still shots of comedic legends Redd Fox, Dick Gregory and Richard Pryor. Rhythmic cuts push and pull against the brooding hip hop soundtrack and athletic tracking shots, adding to the feeling of tense anticipation. This was the revolution of comedy, P. Diddy’s VO intones. Now sit back and watch the evolution. The future. Y’all ready?
