I'm exploring the world of Sky, following on from the release of the new channel logos which I really like the look of.
I thought I'd change up how I would usually post my mocks and take the release parts as I go along root, rather than what I normally do by releasing the bulk within the first post.
This mock started from the point where Sky refreshed the logos on their channels, to match the style used by Sky Comedy, and for the majority of that time, I've made a new look for Sky News by mainly adapting the Next IPP used on the entertainment channels.
One of the changes I did make was to reintroduce the proper opening music to the TOTH
, which I then combined with the current bed (firstly, to match the existing captures I used but secondly, as I quite liked the sound of it). I have kept the current TOTH opener style, however to match the length of the music, I did extend the animation, thinking of new ways people interact with Sky News, which resulted in a fourth scenario representing smartwatches, and a fifth that represents smart speakers (*cough*Alexa*cough)
So far, I have only applied the new graphics to a video for Kay Burley @Breakfast, but I am making one or two more to show off a few other situations, more of which will be explained later in the post. Then I'll do some stuff relating to the more general entertainment channels.
Original source video
I thought about having the NBC News logo as an option in case a correspondent was used, while it would be rare, I liked the idea, I was experimenting with doing the same with the Sky News logo as usually happens in America, but I decided against it.
In the case of a negative(s), the red background would occupy the relevant halves, or the full width
Quotes and/or Social Media
The next video I'm working on is for applying my graphics to the last election, here are some stills, but I would like to know if there is anything that you think could be different, as I could then altered the video to fit. For the most part, I've just adapted the current style to fit in with what I've already done...
I would like for the count to use the new adapted Sky Ultra font rather than Sky Text, so I've supplied both options...
and to finish this post off, here's pretty much every channel logo adapted to the new style, as with my first Sky mock from a few years ago
, I've reintroduced Sky Three, which means I have to figure out what to do with Sky Two. I've also altered the Sky History logo by taking the colouring from the gold logo and putting into the main background of the logo, however I would plan on using this in conjunction with the two black and white background logos.
I've posted it in a spoiler as it's a very long image, in addition to this very long post.
