BBC2 Personality 2 concepts

Bit of an unconventional/simplistic thread concept here, but I wanted to share some ideas I'd had for idents that could have been made for the 2001-2007 BBC2 ident range. I really like the personality 2s; the initial narrow range (4) did undermine the series, but they were really great I think.

Anyway, here are the concepts:

Domino Fall
A variant of Domino: instead of the comedic payoff, the domino falls the right way, triggering a chain reaction. This would help retain viewers' attention - which way would the domino fall?

Lights
Upon a click of its fingers, the 2 turns its yellow backdrop pitch black. The 2 itself glows amber, partially illuminating its surroundings.
Lights Sombre
A news-safe variant of the above; the sequence begins midway through, with the backdrop already black and the 2 already glowing.

Juggle
The 2 attempts to juggle little 2s. Eventually, they land on its head.

Train
The 2 enters the scene by riding a model train (with no track), and continues riding the train around the scene, eventually waving at the viewer. The opening four-note jingle is played out on a train's whistle.

Levitate
Another news-safe, simplistic ident. The 2 begins to levitate as it gets very slowly lifted up towards the top of the screen by an unknown force.

Torch
The 2 searches a darkened scene using a searchlight emitted from its 'head'. Eventually, it finds and illuminates what it's been looking for: the BBC Two logo in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.

Hallowe'en (Special Ident)
The 2 appears wearing a set of fake fangs under its 'head' and wearing a vampire cape. The opening four-note jingle is played on a theremin or on a theatrical organ.


How are these ideas? Does anyone have any of their own they'd like to share?

This is something more suitable for the Gallery.

But I don't have any pictures or mockups.

Make it so.

Some of these concepts you could creatively "adjust" the existing ones. Don't have to be perfect or up to the standards of the existing ones, don't even have to be fully animated in HD, you could put them as animated GIFs if that's all you're able to do.

Heck, even Powerpoint would do, better than nothing.

Annoyingly I want to see all of these now.
