I think a clock (even if it's not realtime) would lend a bit more gravitas than a roadsweeper into the 'flagship' bulletin so I knocked one up to see how it might look. I would have preferred the CA said "News at Ten" but I guess she didn't get the memo, or the memo was never written.

VMPhil, the one below isn't public as you suggested... can you view it?

Anglia (East) Look East
Yes, I can - I can play the bottom one fine but can't play the top one at all. Here's a (resized) screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/4iDg4c1.png?1


Bizarrely, changing the privacy does seem to have worked! I'm on OSX and can see the bottom video, but the top one doesn't load properly and says 'error'.

The ident itself is absolutely lovely! At the end when everything is in focus perhaps the quality of the image/textures/whatever lets it down slightly as parts of the clockface look slightly pixellated, but otherwise the ident is really very nice indeed!

I'm not a fan of the little ITV bumper between the ident and the headlines of NaT though - seems a bit jarring, perhaps?

I'm assuming the VM stands for Video Magician, clearly a tech wizard. Thanks again for the workaround Smile

Here's how it looks without the bumper.

It does add a lot of authority. It would work really well! I must say though I'm not the biggest fan of the hands moving so quick. Maybe the same sweeping shot of the clock but with the hands static on 10? or even 21:59 and moving just as it approaches 10?

I like this. I personally like the speed of the clock moving. It adds a nice dynamic. Just don't like the soundtrack, but that's not your fault.

Just want to point something out, I think when uploading the videos it's best o do a public and private version or whatever you have to do that VMPhil suggested as my iPhone and iPad will play the private one but (at least) my nannas computer says "Decode Error" on the private ones
"All that I want, is to wake up fine, tell me that I'm alright, that I ain't gonna die, and all that I want, is a hole in the ground, you can tell me that it's alright, for me to come out."
