Director Anthony Furlong and his colleagues from the Emmy Award-winning creative production company Shilo have created a cinematic holiday card for HBO as shown in the following Behind the Scenes presentation. HBO’s holiday video begins in the home of a family sitting down to watch HBO together, then recreates the network’s renowned 1983 intro by flying through New York and then moving through the vast landscapes of the United States. For Shilo, attention to detail was paramount as they designed and built every New York building to match the original within this updated style. The paper world they created provides a unique holiday twist connecting to cards, gift wrappings and handmade charm.
According to Furlong, his team’s research and development phase consisted of building practical houses and characters from paper, which gave them an understanding of how to realistically model each object in their world and which paper weaves would provide the best stand-ins for real world materials. “We wrote a variety of concepts and scripts, with our favorite being a take on the original HBO intro from 1983,” he says. “Not only is it a celebration of the iconic intro’s 30th anniversary, but it became a perfect holiday journey by visiting the homes of viewers throughout the country. For us, home is what the holidays are all about.”

The project is tremendously personal to him, it’s a lot more than the humor that’s at its surface and he is still trying to work out what “Scorpion Dagger” really is.
