Had a go at a bit of itv 'real life' colour-picking ident mockery (audio from current and previous itv idents)

Gull Group is the one I like the best.

Hmm, not sure what to say about these really. You have done them well for a mock, but they have faults. Some of the colour picking does not work well and it just looks like the logo in parts is faulty and flashing all the time. This is very noticeable in the Gull Group ident.

Also, did you film these yourself or is it stock footage you've used? Just wondering as there is very little movement in any of the idents making them become boring very quickly. The golden ocean one just looks like a computer screensaver due to this. If you did film them yourself, try filming some more but include movement like many of ITV's idents do. If you just used stock videos, why not have a go at filming some stuff yourself?
Also I don't know if you would be able to do this, but in many of ITV's idents, one feature common is for one area to be in focus and the rest of the scene blurry. Could you have a go at doing this?

Good work for a first attempt, hope you can get the colour picking thing sorted. Not actually sure how you do this so don't know how easy it would be to fix, but the flashing bits need to be sorted somehow.

As diverse as ITV are, the Rainbow flag wouldn't air on ITV. It'd be a good C4 ident...

Your colour shifting isn't brilliant but the concepts are fine, but there's very little design work of your own in it - it's ITV's direction and idea with different footage...

3/5 from me
Oh it's such a perfect day, I'm glad I spent it with you...
