Mostly everyone liked it, the liked the song and the colour with animation. A few things were said about the band section as it holds for a bit too long. However me and rebecca knew this but we are now worried if we was to try changing it about it will full out of sync. However as we noticed that aswell we will give it ago over the next two weeks. I want to show it to people now who dont no the idea, style or anything and get there reaction!.

I am going to keep with the Crimson in a crimson colour but im not intirely happy with the text, i think it is a bit simple and looks like a letter heading at the moment. So i think i need to develop that, and maybe make the text bigger?
This is the best text overall at the moment. I think the style matched the quaint style of a moth and i kept to the crimson being in a different colour. I had the date in a different colour as i think the video, and to an extent the poster and digi pack is serious ( our band is meant to be a young band). So having the multi colour adds a bit of fun and also makes it stand out. I also adding the information on the song at the top of the page.
The section between the title and the information at the top i feel there needed to be something. However i dont want anything to heavy to take the attention from the rest of the poster. Therefore i turned up the contrast on the main moth in the background. Also added a green tint. Im still deciding where to go, i think i might as other people opinon before i say it is the final one.
-List of songs.
-Photo from music video.
I want there to be a hint of animation or the style cut out as i think it is an important style to the band. There music is not the norm and i think it should reflect it in the digi pack.
For the poster i want to have a photo from the cd cover as the main photo so the two ( well actually all three,including music video) have a running thread.
Promotion involves disseminating information about a product, product line, brand, or company. It is one of the four key aspects of the marketing mix. (The other three elements are product marketing, pricing, place.)
Promotion is generally sub-divided into two parts:
Above the line promotion: Promotion in the media (e.g. TV, radio, newspapers, Internet, Mobile Phones, and, historically, illustrated songs) in which the advertiser pays an advertising agency to place the ad
Below the line promotion: All other promotion. Much of this is intended to be subtle enough for the consumer to be unaware that promotion is taking place. E.g. sponsorship, product placement, endorsements, sales promotion, merchandising, direct mail, personal selling, public relations, trade shows.
This was the look of it - but once again when putting it into the music video it really didnt go. So once again we went back to the orginal footage. We spent a little time on editing and trying out different effect, but still keeping the edge look. We turned the brightness up high so it is mostly white now. It looks like this..
I like it mainly for the performance and also it is the closest we have got to our original idea. To date we are sticking with this as it fit almost perfect, theres one scene where we had to add some stills, overall it goes with the music.
Sooo hopefully this means the band section is complete!
It was/is extremly fustrating. But even more annoying the the silhotte didnt work. We tried uping the contrast but it just isnt what we had in mind. Ideally we need a massive thing sheet ( that is pinned up) with a huuggee light behind the person. But i think we are running out of time and its just not working. We thought of different ways to present the band. We have got some photos of the band to carry through the transiton if each section but like i said i think we need real footage. We also tried a photomontage, inspired by the The Reeling, Passion Pit song, and also Kings of Leon CD cover where sections of a face builds up one.
But i think it dosent fit in the video so we cut it out. Still trying to find something to fit in and runnig out of time! As we need to know where everything is going, we decided to return back to what we done. We used an effect called Edge which basically just shows the edge. It is the closest we could get to a sillhote without having one. However it is very dark. And is a big contrast as most of the video is still light. Argh have to think of new ideas !
However it would be liked by older people but maybe just for first look, i think 16-30 would reutun to watch it again.
