Lovely. I wonder if you'll get a call from Sky.

While that would be any mocker's dream come true, I doubt it would happen

I hope it does, both of you truly are some of the best mockers I’ve seen in my almost five years on TVF.

Thank you everyone

Over last night and today I've animated a Sky Sports name strap. The intention is that with Sky News, I'm going to do a TOTH for all the branded programmes and one general hour, then Sophy Ridge on Sunday will act as an extended example to show off the graphics in detail, and then Sportsline along the same lines using the Sky Sports graphics.



EDIT: Another name strap to test out a longer graphic, as the first one was the shortest length used. I made a little spreadsheet to work out the animation for any length, so the animation should be proportionally the same and match not matter what length I do.

Whilst browsing through this thread I seem to have mixed up J Lyric with PATV... and got confused whose thread it was because it’s that good! Nonetheless you both are brilliant mockers and Sky would be lucky to have you Very Happy .

Appreciate it - though I'd probably be all over the typeface and logo departments Very Happy

Also, you can just call me Lyric if you want

A bit late seeing them but loving the Sky News efforts from last week.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

Hi again...

*

A quick update on some very recent stuff, I planned to have a go at some US election stuff in line with The Brexit Election stuff, but my idea quickly changed because of how much I liked both Sky's and NBC's branding for the election, so I've ended up with hybrid look for Sky News, using the NBC logo design, with the font being replaced with Sky Headline and some colours from the NBC blending with the Sky set as well.

Everything is stills so far, though I plan to do a quick animation test, though I would keep the animation mostly the same as it was with the actual think with the fly on from the side effect.

As I said, the straps would have the same layout as Sky had, just with a few tweaks to incorporate the NBC style and colours, including a gradient on the white to have the NBC flag video background, subtly animating at the bottom.



And finally, a more basic tester of the split screen. I really liked the design they used, so will probably take it forward for future Sky News mock-ups.

A great update. Love the Sky Headline typeface used too kept in line with the election graphics used on air. Can't wait to see the transitions. 👍
