Most like the original logo ... with the orb of light at beacon done with a laser pointer and no post processing

ZEN MAGNETS / NEOBALLS (@1438) - Doctor Who Tardis logo

In anticipation for the upcoming 50th Anniversary (1963-2013) Special coming in November, I wanted to create something to help celebrate the event.

The 11th Doctor got a cool new logo design in the form of D W forming the Tardis shape.

The beacon photos were shot raw and in camera using a tripod, with no post processing ... overlays at bottom were added post in one shot.

The beacon effect was achieved using a red laser pointer focused on four zen mirrored balls to create the flare. Laser specific protective eye glasses was used during this phase. Never look directly into a laser or reflection without protective eye wear specifically designed for laser protection.

Also included in some of the shots: the 10th Doctor's Flight Control Tardis (with lighted sign/windows/beacon), the 11th Doctor's sonic screwdriver, and the 4th Doctor's K-9.
