As a viewer of GMB, I noticed that the hand off to the regional news is quite inconsistent. Sometimes they do a camera shot out and keep the graphics on screen, sometimes they use the GMB bumper screen, sometimes they use the larger GMB logo and take off the clock and flipper.
What I have created is an idea which I think would look really nice in the programme if incorporated correctly and timings worked out well.
Apologies for the poor background - I had to slap on the text using ITV Reem font and set it to white with a lowered opacity to try and make the text look like it isn't there. If anyone has the background footage they use, it would be a help to me.
Take a look and let me know what you think.
In addition, I created one with text on screen showing which region the viewer would see and where the content is from:
For those interested, below is a timeline of how the opt-out would work:
1. Presenters hand off ('Now for the news, travel & weather where you are. See you in a moment!')
2. Regional News bumper is shown and all graphics are off screen
3. Changes to local stations (which are showing the content from the ITV in London)
4. Wipe on to presenter, who begins reporting the news
