Work on The Unbearable Lightness of Being DVD (Filmed in 1988 starring Daniel Day-Lewis and Juliette Binoche) included animating parts of the Emotional Memory documentary. Russell Frazier, AlphaDogs vice president of graphics technologies, chose reflection as a visual motif from the film and animated scenes from the movie in spinning, reflected panels that pass by like fleeting memories.
The Ben Hur DVD starring Charlton Heston includes documentaries, audio commentary and other special features. Frazier's graphic work on this project included slowing and separating the iconic image of the chariot in motion from the film and presenting it against the monumental, frescoed style of the film's titles.
