Worked on this about six months ago originally and, thanks to the generosity of others in the Christmas Presents thread, (thank you! Very Happy ) finished it off in January. With tweaks imminent I thought now might be a good time to post for amusement's sake.

I'm hoping there's a new transition in tomorrow's titles, as I've never been a fan of the logo flying towards me like a custard pie as it does. In this tweak to the current titles, the GMB 'sunbeam' forms as the sun's rays burst through the ITV logo (capturing the essence of the bright, colourful nature of both the channel and the content to follow), and then remains on screen as we transition into the studio, until it settles in its position bottom left.

*

There are eight versions to choose from, the visuals remaining the same but each with a different theme (chronologically ordered apart from the last one) because I'm a pres geek and that's what pres geeks do.

BBC Breakfast Time



BBC Breakfast News



GMTV



Daybreak mk I



Daybreak mk II



GMB mk I



GMB mk II



Rainbow



... and in a Freaky Friday type switcheroo, ITV News titles accompanied by the GMB theme, not retimed or fiddled with in any way apart from a few sunrisey type flares and glares, it's as if they were made for each other!

These are amazing. That is all I can think to say right now. Could I just ask, where did you get the BBC Breakfast News music from?

EDIT: I would love to see these with the updated logo when it is available.

Well, there go the ratings. I'll be on my way. Bye.

One word Phenomenal! The transition is fantastic, your slight remixes to the theme tunes are brilliant. One thing I do want to ask is the Daybreak 1 theme completley remixed by yourself or was it part of the daybreak package but never played on air?

Thanks for your comments Smile

Sounded like the closing theme mixed into the title theme


You're right watchingtv, with the '3 sec web back ref sting' for a bit of extra oomph!

Marked these as outstanding before I even watched them, only to then realise I'd be watching Richard Arnold eight times - somehow still annoying even when on mute. Wink

Other than that fantastic though and a much better transition of the logo. Easily the best GMB mock ever posted here - and that's meant as a compliment too!
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television" thread?

Excellent! I think the GMTV and Daybreak Mk II versions are the best in my opinion.

I even like the morning ITV News titles you've created. Could be an idea should the want to brand the news bulletins more closely towards the ITV News branding.
