This is more of a quick mock done on a day off than anything serious, but I am looking to add more to it and expand it.

I'm thinking of making a hybrid of the 2008 look and the LDN 2001 package.

edit: must credit the lovely footage to Jason Hawkes Aerial Phototgraphy

Not bad. Very impressive. You can remove the box around the BBC News logo though.....

I wasn't keen on it after I added it, so it's definitely being removed in the next version.

Other tweaks, the place name decoders need to animate properly on the endboard (and some shots from the titles). I might see how the old 'radio waves' work with the 'cat's cradle' place names.

I also want to create astons, screen graphics, closing title graphics, phono boards, quote boards etc for this package (which I'll have to do around work commitments.

I've not done any real mocking for 3/4 years now and want to get back into it.

I don't mind the box around the BBC News logo, just the way it animates - why do the top and right sides animate quite slowly, but then the left and bottom sides animate in the blink of an eye?

The mock itself is quite nice - it has reminded me though of how bad the regional news music was then though!

I've done cats cradle and decoding mashups it works surpisingly well. Like this, short sweet and nicely done. The monochrome graphics feel dated though, perhaps try a "leave colour" effect and maintian any red in the original image (mailbox logo on the building would look good in colour)

Also why is it 16:10 not 16:9 ratio?

Good shout on the leave colour effect:

Will get that sorted ASAP, the 16:10 is caused by me running it through Handbrake to compress it for upload, as the lossless file was too large.

So this week I will try and render out some changes, some more indepth graphics, phonos, astons and so on. Sadly work commitments have stalled my mock progress so far!
