I recently shared with you about some of the work I completely bombed on, well I went back to the drawing board and put together two new promos. The first promo would be used for more general purpose use and the second would be used for raising awareness and interest for potential sponsors. When I built this promo I put it on a large PSD file (2300 x 2300 px) and then moved a camera around with a null object. This is what the whole piece looks like without any video or text on it:


Now here's the videos:

The second promo is the key one. The first one just came as a bonus as I sat in front of After Effects and thought it would be cool to offer the client 2 for the price of 1. I don't think they'll mind that!

Here's the second and primary promo:

So, I think I'm on the right track. These are the initial drafts and the client will be reviewing them with their team and council. We'll see what happens.

Just wanted to share my journey with you and hope you can learn from the areas I've flubbed up in.
