I have acknowledged your other points. However, you do not own the music, nor are you the creator. Therefore, it is not your place to comment on such matters. I also asked for constructive criticism, not nastiness in order to gain kudos and a chance to make yourself feel better.


I haven't gathered any kudos from either of my points...

And I may not own or have created the music, but that doesn't mean common courtesy doesn't exist! If someone shares something with you, but they didn't create it, you don't have a license to use it whenever you like.

And you may have vaguely stated that it will fit within Studio 3, but to what extent? Is there a sufficient gap for fire lines if necessary, or are you jamming the set up against the walls, not taking into account doors etc, which wouldn't be possible in a real set?

Firstly, I make mocks because I want to. They are not made to please the members of TV Forum. I chose this show because I wanted something that I could create from scratch. If you care to read the comments attached the video, you will notice that I have already mentioned that studio is designed to fit within Studio 3 in The London Studios. I used real measurements and looked at floor plans. If you actually read the other points made in the first version of this project, many of your points will be addressed.

Additionally, I am not a director. The opening shots were more about showing the studio itself. You also may not find that the sofa is to your personal taste. It is, however, a common design for modern sofas.

As the Daybreak is more likely than not 'Library' music then yeah Critique is more than entitled to comment on that aspect. Do you own the music or anyway linked in relation to the composition of the music? Do you have any licence rights, PRS or MCPS to use the music?

Have you read the FAQ's and Info on here in relation to Library music?

As the Daybreak is more likely than not 'Library' music...


Regardless of whether it's library or not, unless you have permission from the rights holder, you shouldn't be distributing it, especially to the general public on the likes of YouTube, it's still copyrighted material.

The reason for the ban on sharing Library music on here is because it directly affects the income of the music libraries themselves, and therefore they can (and do) start litigating against people who facilitate the sharing of that music. While independent producers who haven't put their content onto a library could do the same, it's far more likely for them to turn a blind eye to some limited sharing between enthusiasts on a private forum. They're far less likely to have the same opinion of those people sharing that material on YouTube for anyone to download - end result is that the "leaks" of these files will stop.



Back to the mock - does the inclusion of the music add anything to the mock? No. Is it your work? No. Have you noticeably altered it? No. Then you shouldn't include it. The rest of the work would be no better/worse without it.

If ITV have any issues with the music, I will happily remove it. Various people have offered the music, which I am very grateful for. If anybody who offered me the music preferred it wasn't used, then I apologise. Please PM me to let me know and I will remove it.

And this is why I don't share stuff with people I don't know I can trust - because so many people believe until they're told they shouldn't have done something, they can do it anyway. Nobody will have shared the music with you with the intention that you upload it to YouTube, and that should be obvious.

Look - I have apologised, now stop. You are trying to make this more of a problem than it actually is.

I've not seen you apologise to Critique after you posted:

And I don't see anything that suggests you acknowledge you've done something wrong. "If people have a problem, then I apologise" is not an apology.

It is a serious problem. There's members of this site uploading SketchUp files as if they're their own, there's members of this site uploading music to YouTube and there's members of this site handing out fonts like they're candy. If this carries on, nobody will leak files, or share the ones they have, because everything is ending up in the hands of the general public, without attribution or permission of the creator / owner of those works.

How would you like it if our SketchUp sharing friend ended up with a copy of your work here, and then uploaded the whole file, without attributing the work to yourself, for anyone to download?

Here is the updated version of this project:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yu5J594n4-Y

This includes a brand new studio and a new set of graphics, alongside a new format. From 6am, Louisa and Ranvir anchor from the desk. No lifestyle or entertainment during this hour. From 7am, Charlotte and Stephen present, with Louisa and Ranvir on headlines. If a big news story broke, then Charlotte would move to the desk. The show can easily go live from the South Bank or a terrace at ITV Studios. The newsroom background in the studio was created by myself behind the studio, but in reality it would be on a screen. The studio was created within the bounds of Studio 3 in The London Studios.

The graphics were a totally new creation. The graphics have a more 'boxed' look, and all are 16:9 safe. The programme opening is now far more simple, with no graphics as such (similar to ITV News). The music was also changed. I think the new music is far better than what I used originally. Also included in this is a look at the regional news (including the Westcountry studio I created). Please let me know what you think and whether this is an improvement.

I love this! A lot better than Weekend's current format. The only thing I don't like is the sofa

Thank you James. Maybe the sofa is a little to brash for that time of the morning. I'll have a go at changing it for v3, but I'm pretty pleased with how the rest of it worked out.

I like the graphics. I particularly enjoy the way the 'TOP STORY' / 'DEVELOPING STORY' animates. Good overall. I like, too, very much, the placement of the LIVE strap. If your location had any more characters than 'Edgware Road', though, the 'FLASHING IMAGES' would clash with it. That sofa is as jazzy as hell. One 'loud' pattern would be enough for me... or a simple block colour.

Here's my feedback on this mock, as requested by Aaron_2015 in his other hot topic:

- title sequence is far too simplistic
- studio backdrop is extremely dingy and dark
- too many back-and-forth cuts between headline images and presenters; disrupts the whole flow of the opening sequence
- "Top Story", "Developing Story" etc etc graphics far too intrusive; covering the presenters' faces is plain wrong (not even precious GMB does that)
- FAR too much text on screen; looks very messy and almost like Ceefax/Teletext (before your time Aaron)
- soft area is quite simply a shambles - white brick walls/blue strips look too cold and uninviting for breakfast telly... and that sofa!!! Yikes.

Does that do you?

The title sequence was changed in response to previous feedback - I made it more simple to align it with ITV News. I accept the newsroom is a little dark, but plain glass looked a bit strange. You also make a good point on the wipes, they ought to be moved down more. I wouldn't agree on the text however, it is the same amount of text just closer together. The blue translucent glass is the same colour as the Weekend branding, so the brand is consistent throughout. I have already commented that the sofa is a little too brash. Thank you Nicky, your comments have been useful.
