just getting a little thing put together to use when I finally get around to doing some rerecs. I was inspired by, well, the resources.
first complete pass at a bumper idea I had this afternoon and threw together in aftereffects. V1 is video only, though I have some Ideas for audio, and I'm not quite 100% happy with the animation on the orb yet (I think I want it to have more bounce when it hits the final position. but for just about 2 hours of work, I'm pretty happy with it.

let me know what you think!
b version. i think i like it better, but you folks have seen both, so you tell me, and I shall learn from your edifying education of academicalness!
mainly uploading this to use as an album cover for a new album of my hitRECord logo/brand related assets, but thought folks may be able to vamp on it, too.
inspired by belcath's remix to do isolated high res versions of all my icons in two different color combinations. 1 of 10.
a collection of the original Adobe Illustrator CS 5.1 hitRECord vector files I've created so far, aswell as one remixed from mandakhoo's "Close to Perfection?" and a fully vectorized version of belcath1981's "Hitrecord camcorder..." Remix at will.
expandized and vectorized. w/ color. just the expanded graphic, and a black and white version of this, and shirt placement all coming soon!
as per matt's request. because of the way the text was incorporated into the image, I made two slightly altered textless versions which extend or combine other graphic elements from the B design to re-balance the image.
came out of some other work and ideas I was doing (experimenting with smartphone case design, will post soon). original vectors eventually.
variant on previous attempt. solves the slightly awkward feeling I was having about putting a big red target with the word HIT in the middle of it on the chest of a piece of clothing for women. It felt slightly... off.
handdrawn vector paint/ink textures, originally created for "In Regard to Atoms: A Tiny Reply". I've been doing all this stuff in bed today, getting over a cold. vectors eventually. please do remix this.
this one's a bit more like the typical branding, with the record dot/proton serving as the "O" in hitrecord. You'll notice that in the original the dot is not actually serving as a letter. I'm not sure which actually works better, as the original was more balanced, but I think this version is less confusing. Also, the electron is at the top of the orbit, like it was in the original hydrogen letterhead I created for the my tiny story "In Regard to Atoms".
These two new solid blue background versions (as well as three white BG images I'll upload as a single image) aim to play a little bit closer to the official logo, and play up contrasts in the red white and blue color scheme.
for an icon for about to be posted bumper, but thinking of also doing a graphical remix with more stills, towards postcards or products.
did this today, ink on cel, alcohol, time warping, color pushing, after effects comping. will raw assets and remix later, and designed to be remixable, planning on updating this and energy orb soon, but lost time I need to be spending on other things, so really need to push this on the back burner for a while. still, here you go, guys, have at.
Also have some ideas for a graphic remixs from it.
h264 1080p 23.97 fps
first remix of the inkflow bumper on some aerial footage I took, I'll have atleast one more from this footage variant that will be a bit subtler. Sound is the original airplane noise. Raw footage will go up as well.
h264 720p 23.97fps h264 after effects
just another version of the first remix. again this has the native audio from the aerial footage. expect one or two versions of another remix before the end of the day.
after effects 720p h264 23.97 fps
this is a still, icon, and card concept for my latest remix of the inkflow bumper I made yesterday. more info on assets and videos and all that when I most the actual video, momentarily.
here's the third remix of inkflow. this footage comp used warp stabilization in After effects and more complex blending and timing then the first, all towards a more "upper atmosphere feel". might be a few more iterations of this one up the pipeline, and again, raw assets and resources to be posted soon.
h264 after effects 720p 23.97fps
Now this one is a completely different version of the logo font taking things to an even greater extreme of abstraction by fusing letters together.
going to be my last record for at least a few days, as I am falling to behind on work for my thesis film and need to stop being distracted by hitREC's glorious awesomeness. When I come back, stripped down versions, resources, other things. Hopefully might get to cutting my first re-rec video before the weekends over, but outside of that, brief hiatus. ciao.
got to stop, must finish script... what ever it takes. here. why haven't we had more vertically oriented Postcard ideas, though?
remixing belcath's excellent postcard remix. tried a back for the first time in my postcard designs, too. Most of the editing to the front image was done in artrage for the ipad. I think I may be missing a few resources though, as can sometimes happen when remixing a remix.
To tell the truth, this entire design was motivated by the fact that I LOVE belcaths original patterns and swirls remix, but had always wished that the owl bear had had more division from the spirals behind him.
the original image remix of the remix for the postcard remix.
Please let me know what resources I'm missing. Especially you if you see his, Belcath, since I assume you know best.
first of three parts of my response to gaby's challenge that I make a new sunday rerec logo.
the second part is storyboards for an animated motion graphics bumper involving the designs. They will follow immediately.
the third part is going to be the acutal animation, and it could take a while.
loved riistan's original, did a vectorized redraw, recolored, and switched out here and how with hitrecord. :) Think it could make a pretty awesome tee graphic.
the second part of the challenge from Gaby. These are the boards for the animated motiongraphics bumper of that new still
more graphic, but I'm not sure if it qualifies as more, the same, or slighlty less minimal. Also, tried to make it a bit friendlier.
tiny doodle logo for my only slightly late re-rec video coming tomorrow, and meeting a previous challenge to me too (though I'm still going to do the other version eventually, too ;) ). Hopefully, I'll be caught up on all of those intended videos and shorts and stuff by the end of the week, but I am getting into the very deep of my thesis work, so no promises quite yet. Peace, y'all.
gonna post the original re-recs it was supposed to go with by tomorrow... hopefully.
The worst part is that when I'm working on other stuff, not only am I not getting my own stuff up here, but I'm missing everyone else's awesome new stuff here. That ...
can't find a record of the error logo to cite it to, but i was inspired. might try to recreate bigger and/or animated eventually.
work towards recreating it at higher res. REALLY don't have time to do mor work towards recreating the breaking pattern on it at this scale today, but thought you all might like this version too. This piece is on a 1080x1920 (full hd) transparency.
got carried away in illustrator, using different creative tools to make up all the non red letters. enjoy. image is BIG. can be BIGGER if needed.
1080p, will eventually get around to uploading the raw ink files I have for effects.
2 of 3.
After Effects CS6, h264 1080p
at least 3 of 3, might do a little more.... cs6 AE 1080p h264. Will probaly do 720 p versions, too.
720p ae h264, that's it for now, as I reallly don't actually have the time to be doing this at present!
I'm posting these is reverse order, and then the ps file with the assets later tonight. a little bit of a break from my other work.
The idea is a pseudo clockwork logo.
If I have some more time later on, I may try and animate it in PS and AE, but others can have a whack too. Full resources soon. For now for me it's back to thesis.
last one, was rendering. forgot to post.
after effects cs6 h264
second board for the concept. The mechanism on the right turns to different numbers on the top button, ratcheting in the words.
-2 brings in "RECord"
-3 brings in "REmix"
-4 brings in "REPEAT"
and Going back to one brings both the mechanism and the 3 word card off, replacing it with the hitRECord logo on the dowld from the last board.
Final Board, Assets in PSD and BG to follow.
A poster made from the assets for the animation. Also the same layout will be up as a PNG with no BG and transparency as an alternate way of grabbing assets.
and finally the zip of the 1080p psd file with the grouped and organized assets. I don't have time to animate it myself right now, but maybe someone else can, or I'll get to it later.
Joe's announcement about how we gonna be on the TV, a few things at school, and a red thumbtack remined me that I've been meaning to do more motiongraphics, aftereffects, and hitrecord bumpers, so here's one I threw together tonight called smile.
color pushing, animation, tracking and text done in Adobe AfterEffects CS6, camera was my iPhone 5. Render quicktime H264, resolution 1080p.
and, of course, the mouth and the stubble are mine. ;)
This Tiny Story from epocadofim was great! I just had to try and make it into an image :)
The font is the free 'Landsdowne' font from dafont.com
The background is from a silent movie title card template from Farrin N. Abbott at CopyCatFilms.com who has released into the wild for anyone to use
I drew the twiddly bits myself
Designed and animated in zbrush 4r4, slight editing in Adobe AE CS6. 1080p 24 fps h264. First of a lot of these.
this version has three variants.
will have the obj of the logo that I made uploaded soon for common use.
album cover for an album I am choosing to make for all my various bumpers. all in photoshop cs 5.1 also going to upload a postcard version, and I can throw up the base photo if anyone wants it.
A further concept with our dapper new friend, Mr. Button.
PS: I actually used Joe in the tv announcement video as ref for this one in particular. man looks good in a suit, and he's always got that red lapel pin, whatever that's about... ;)
animated in photoshop with some revisions in after effects.
1080p 23.98 fps h264 quicktime MOV. No sound yet, and I've really got to switch over to working my thesis film and sending out emails, so probably nothin' else from me today... if I'm doing things right.
