Is this just an excuse to show off the Daybreak music? Irrespective of whether this is the case or not it's not good form to upload it in full and in public music that another member has kindly given you. If they didn't make it public you shouldn't either.
I genuinely can't believe that you have just accused me of that! I have been working on this for weeks. Despite all of the insults I've had this is the most pathetic.
Anyway, thank you very much AWTN, it's nice to see that people think I'm improving.
Okay, you'd like some criticism for your mock then? Here we go:
First of all, as SomeRandomStuff would say, what's the point in making a mock for what is ultimately a fictional TV show? Yes 'Weekend' is actually a programme but the only similarity between your concept and the actual programme is the name! What's the point in coming up with some format that you think would be good? There are a huge number of TV shows you could have decided to rebrand/create a mock for, and you decided that none were good enough and that you should come up with your own. I don't personally see the point in entirely fictional mocks (this one has absolutely no grounding in reality) when there are actual TV show formats you could have tried to improve - there's no good way of judging something entirely fictional because there's nothing to compare it to, where as with a BBC News studio mock, a Daybreak mock you have something to compare with, in order to cast some sort of judgement over whether the mock is any good. Additionally, surely your TV show format should be feasible? The idea of ITV providing the additional staffing to be able to do weekend breakfast news updates, complete with a normal looking clock and ticker that none of the regions currently seem to be able to do well shows that this has not been thought through, and is something that certainly isn't feasible!
Linking in with your fictional TV show, I shall now comment on your fictional studio dimensions. So, what are the dimensions of the studio, and do they fit within a studio that a fictional programme like yours might use (the George Lucas at Elstree not being a suitable candidate)? A studio mock is pointless if you're plucking the dimensions of it from some mythical land - if this TV programme were actually to become a thing then it would need to fit inside an actual studio, rather than fitting in whatever sized space you'd like it to fit in. There is a lack of realism in this mock.
Next, to the set itself. Is your newsroom backdrop not quite dark for what is a breakfast programme? A backdrop of some screens and a dark piece of glass seems slightly at odds with your bright graphics, and perhaps that part of the studio should be lighter in comparison. Meanwhile, what are the dimensions of the screen in the 'desk' part of the set? They need to be a feasible dimension, and the screen itself needs to be proportioned appropriately. The one in your mock looks very thin, with for a TV screen to be used on TV would seem quite unlikely!
Now, let's take a look at your sofa set. And first of all, that *thing* in your mock is not a sofa. It is some square shapes with some vile textures applied to it. Can you actually imagine a sofa like that appearing in real life - there are no curves in it which a real sofa would have, and instead it looks like part of your set is made up of cardboard boxes covered in questionable wrapping paper!
Moving on from the set, let's take a look at the production values of the mock. At 00:38 - 00:41 there is a camera move following your titles, in which the camera starts completely still, moves and then ends completely still. Is this something you think would look good on TV? The usual practice in TV would be to start the camera move slightly before it appears on screen, before fading to a different shot before it ends, with a more gradual slow to a stop rather than a sudden halt. What your mock shows looks amateurish and not particularly good. Also, why the Daybreak music? Aside from the fact that it seems ill suited to the format of your new show, it's not been put together well by yourself. At 00:35, can you really imagine the bed cutting out completely, before the sting plays? No, it sounds poor and it wouldn't happen, so why is it happening in your mock?
I know there are a lot of questions in my reply, and I probably could write more (I had a section on your graphics and how they are just quite bland and basic ITV News themed things, and how they don't really fit in with the format from when Stephen Mulhern starts presenting the show at a certain time (!), but I cut it), but I doubt you will take any notice of my response and continue to push out rubbish like this, in the exact same way you ignored how I pointed out the polite/decent thing to do when given music for a TV programme that has not been published publicly is not to then publish the music publicly. If someone is distributing music privately it is usually for a good reason, and those who spoil it by uploading the whole thing in high quality can then ruin it for everyone else when members who have such music decide to stop sharing it with others because a select few feel the need to share it when it's not appropriate to do so!
