CT 345 Rough Cuts


This is the opening to my show, Passing The Rock. This is just a montage to build up hype,  as the process I used was to bank off the emotion in the first few clips. From there, I go into a couple of highlights. The music in the background is the instrumental of the song Basketball by Kurtis Blow, which of course is a song  that is still associated with basketball today. The first clips build emotion and the next few clips are action shots that make fans want to watch the show, in the same fashion any sports highlights show would do.



This is the segment with my host. Just basically welcoming the viewers to my highlights package, includes lower third.



This is the top ten plays from last season segment. My info graphic is just numbers of the countdown. Keeping it simple in the form of Sportscenter.



Outro with the host. the lower third appears again as well as end credits that scroll across the screen.

    the ending sound of the opening scene, needs a bit tuned up. and of course, the audio of the host was missing. I do know that the background is going to look like, so no criticism there. But the info graphics doesn’t tell much, what am i looking at? Anyway, the colors are good, black and orange.

    In your opening sequence you have alot of movement, but then when your title comes up its very static, I think if you have it fade it even, it would be good to have some kind of movement.

    Be careful with the lower 3rds and Info graphics…its getting cut off. I think your opening is good syncs and flows well together.Also for info graphics, it would good to add a title so “viewers” will know what’s being sen on screen.

    I love where you’re going with this, the opening has a lot of energy. however work on a couple of things. the show title comes in too plainly after such an energetic opening. do more with your info graphics and countdown meter, you can definitely play with that a lot of ways. other than that, it looks awesome. I know you were working on the blue screen background today and from what i saw, just play with the coloring of the host, he pops out too much.

    The opening is very action packed and I feel that maybe you can add a credit sequence in it. I like your lower third but i feel that it may be placed too low.

    I think your on the right track but for some reason the countdown doesn’t feel like a countdown to me, maybe a different font will help. Also your ending credits need to be fixed there’s no spaces between some words

    intro is cool, concept is cool, i would say on the credits you should lower case the titles and capitalize the Names or use the italic feature, so it stands out a bit more

    Your open is just a highlight clip. It needs to have some sort of graphics associated to it.. Otherwise it’ “just” a series of clips. The clips should also fill the screen. If these are web clips.. they should be high res.. I will not accept crummy compressed video for your final project.

    Also… I feel like I’ve seen these clips before. Is this a pre-assembled youtube video? Please send me a list of all of the videos that you used for this project…

    The end of the open leaves me underwhelmed.. The open has exciting music and powerful exciting visuals.. But then you just end on a simple graphic on a black background. You need to keep up the excitement.. This is a graphics course. Your final project (So far) only has one graphic.

    Your logo is great.. Although your basketball should match the style of your text.. it stands out a bit… Also, weren’t you going to “roll the basketball through?”

    You’r lower 3rd is too elementary. The simple black background does not work…. Be creative… Keep it legible. Again… weren’t you going to “roll the basketball through?” The dissolve is boring

    You’r info graphic too elementary. The simple black background does not work…. Be creative… Keep it legible. Again… weren’t you going to “roll the basketball through?” How is this different than your lower third.. Don’t be lazy by reusing your lower third…

    In your credits.. Where did that font come from??? It’s too fast, I cant read it.. Why is this just a simple roll? I thought you were purposing to do quick dissolves. You need to spend more time on this. It is not as good as your other graphics.. It’s also outside of title safe. Noone will be able to read this.

    Overall, you need to think about cool design. It seems to simple, with no real elements other than your basketball.. Where is your purposed wood floor and all of your other ideas? Your video also needs audio and to fill the screen.

    You have 5 days to step it up. This is what should have been turned in last week. I believe you can get it done. I will be in on Tuesday if you would like to talk more..
