Due November 20th, 2019 - Produce a short animated video that cleverly brings the SYFY logo to life in a style that uniquely celebrates THE MAGICIANS for the show's upcoming 5th season.

SYFY is the network for genre fans, and they live and breathe everything genre, no matter what genre they're talking about – science fiction, fantasy, comic book, horror, or some awesome mash-up. Since most filmmakers are genre fans too, SYFY has been been working on a monthly initiative where artists, animators, designers, and directors are given the chance to bring the SYFY logo to life in a series of artistic and incredibly stylish genre TV spots.

This month, SYFY wants to celebrate their original fantasy series The Magicians. The hotly-anticipated 5th season premiers this January, and they're looking to create a logo video that pays tribute to the past 4 seasons of the show, and showcase 3 different settings that appear in the show: Fillory, Brakebills University, and the Hedges of New York City. If you're not familiar with these settings, or not caught up on the show, Tongal included helpful info and some visual references in the Background / Additional Assets section on the main contest page.

The goal here is to end up with a stylish and highly visual TV spot that will bring the SYFY logo to life in an unexpected way, transforming the SYFY logo, or revealing it, in the process. This is not about a narrative so much as it is about creating a fun way to set up and subvert audience expectations, while using imagery from The Magicians that fans will know and love.
