Sunday Live was a previous project of mine on this forum and was a spin-off show to 'This Morning'.

However, this time - Sunday Live is a Magazine Show which will replace 'Sunday Brunch' and will be broadcast on Channel 4 every sunday between 9:25am - 12:15pm [A similar timeslot to Sunday Brunch].

It's format will feature Cookery, Pop Culture, Live Peformances, Generic chit-chat, etc.

I hope you like the Title Sequence and the Theme Tune!

Note: I chose this music in particular as I feel it suits Channel 4 very well.

Feedback is welcomed.

All the shots you've used appear to be in line with people going to work on a summer Monday morning. Now while I won't deny there are Sunday workers, the majority of people on a Sunday morning will probably be peeling potatoes or something for Sunday dinner.

That aside, I presume you've deliberately decided to reverse the clips for some reason?

I quite like it. As lukeshep said, it is a bit slow. I think that could be improved by using more clips overall - probably double, maybe even triple what you used on this one. I think this would speed the flow of the titles up a little. I'd also stay away from reversing the clips as I'm not sure that really helps.

I like the type of clips you've used - they all work quite well with each other.

The music isn't what I would have personally chosen, but it surprisingly works quite well!

Overall, it's decent at the moment and with a bit of work could be even better!

3/5

How do the titles reflect the program? You’ve said it’s a light magazine program, but the titles seem to be a better fit for a business program. The ‘Sunday Live’ logo is also too formal for the format you’ve described. The music doesn’t suit a light Sunday format either. The coloured bar in the logo is also not an equal length, it needs to be centralised.

Hi there Aaron,

Thanks for your comments.

I’ve chosen these shots as they are bright and summery and depict what Londoner’s do on weekends.

I said that it is a Live Magazine Show, not a light one.


The music I’ve chosen fits the titles best and also the fx on the screen through the halfway point.

I haven’t made the coloured bar centralised as I feel, as the creator, it looks nice visually.

Thank you.

A couple of questions, firstly, what makes ‘Sunday Live’ different from Sunday Brunch, from your brief description it sound almost identical.

I’ve chosen these shots as they are bright and summery and depict what Londoner’s do on weekends.

So... Londoner’s walk around London on a Sunday morning?

I don’t understand the use of the glitching, how does that fit in? To me it just looks like a set of Big Brother titles.

Not centralising the text doesn’t work, the Live isn’t in line with Sunday either, it’s just looks off.

Overall, the titles are okay, they just need improving a bit, but you could also spend a bit more time on the project overall, develop some graphics that would be used within the show possibly?

Hi there Aaron,

I said that it is a LIVE Magazine Show not a light one.

Hence the name SUNDAY LIVE.

The music I’ve chosen fits the titles best and also the fx on the screen through the halfway point.

I haven’t made the coloured bar centralised as I feel, as the creator, it looks nice visually and is a bit quirky, just like Channel 4 - Who don’t take themselves too seriously.

Thanks.


Firstly, I’d like to point out that I have given up my time to comment on your work. Therefore, I certainly don’t appreciate your rudeness and your poor attitude. If you don’t want your work to be critiqued, don’t ask for feedback.

I am fully aware you said it was a ‘live’ magazine show as opposed to a ‘light’ one. However, in your original post you describe the show as featuring cooking, performances and chat. These are generally considered to be ‘light’ features, hence my comment. You did not have to differentiate the difference between ‘live’ and ‘light’, and certainly did not have to put the respective words in bold.

As for the mock itself, the footage simply does not represent London at the weekend. The footage shows the exact opposite — people going to work as if it was a weekday. As PATV points out, the ‘glitching’ effect has no real relevance to the program you’ve described.

The off-centre bar doesn’t look nice visually and doesn’t look quirky, it simply looks like a rushed mistake.

Hi everyone,

Below is V2 of the 'Sunday Live' title sequence.

Key changes:

- Different footage from the same package is used and it is a lot faster.

- The theme music has been changed to suit the light features of the programme.

- The logo has also been changed alongside a new animation.

Feedback, is again, welcomed.

With all due respect I think you may want to consider changing your stock footage package because I presume what you have is a collection designed to showcase a weekday morning in London, and it doesn't matter how many shots of the London Eye, a half empty platform and a man in shorts you add to your montage, it doesn't change the overall impression that this is not the weekend.

Hi Neil,

What would you suggest I do?

Moving gradient background?

Shorter titles?
