FX: The Americans Promo

Using iconic animals of the respective nations, we created a series of sculptures depicting the tension between the Soviet Union and USA during the Cold War.

Description from Cardboard Castle's website:
We here at Cardboard Castle are pleased to present to you our latest and greatest piece hot off the presses. This is our first of hopefully many collaborations to come with our wonderful new clients over at FX Network. Thanks to our rep Brett Ashy of the Ashy Agency who recently made the introduction. Our team quickly got to work concepting multiple ideas for the ID and our very own Brian Smith had a brilliant idea to show off a great battle between a Bear and an Eagle over a pile of ICBM’s. A perfect metaphor!
This is another great piece that represents Cardboard Castles desire to continually set the bar higher and higher. Our team is always up for the challenge and with the introduction of the bear and the eagle we have added a few new tricks up our sleeve.
I hope you enjoy watching our latest creation as much as we enjoyed creating it.
