It's been four years since I last posted
in here. I've since had another go at playing with After Effects to come up with a set of titles for the BBC News bulletins in a Reith-ian 2019 era.
The premise is a similar idea to 2015: a major rebrand still feels unlikely, so some slight tweaks would be a good way to freshen it all up.
Gone is the trundle cam and the long titles, taking us back to the length we saw around 1999. The headline sequence would also be shorter.
I've always been a fan of customised titles. The cats cradle no longer has place names - instead headlines from the stories you're likely to see in the bulletin. Similarly, some of the news stories that appear on the globe are from the BBC News website that day. I've taken these stories from the infamous BBC News at 10 break-down.
There are pulses on the globe which represent where the BBC has a bureau / correspondent - bar the UK (that could get quite messy). This would change as the make-up of the BBC changes. But it would be a theme that I would progress to the regional news titles. The eagle-eyed may notice some clocks that show 18:00:42 - this is supposed to be real-time (many do seem to have got lost in the render and on another go I might pop some more of these in).
Let me know your thoughts as it's certainly a work in progress.
