Animated Logo
« on: December 11, 2010, 04:11:44 pm »

Hi all,

I am posting to ask a couple of questions. A group of friends and myself have set up an amateur, non- profit, hobby film making group. We intend to do live action films and animations (in the future) and release them on the net via our website and other selected websites. Our own web address is www.goldlinepictures.com

At the moment we do have an animated logo to go before our films but it is not the best. It is a very low poly mesh and I think it could do with updating. I made the model myself a few years ago when I started using Anim8or but I am not the animation type, I am more of a writer/director.

I was wondering if anyone could help me by designing a new animated logo for me. You will of course get all credit for making the new version and you will be included in the credits of all productions we do.

Our old logo is on youtube here is the link to it

Thanks for reading this.

Thanks for replying.

I kinda like how the current one works however I feel it needs something new and interesting added to it.  We plan to make several films over the next few years based at several different audiences so it needs to be something that is suitable for all age groups and genre preferences.

Our first production is a mystical, fantasy themed storyline so we do have an idea we would like for it. We would like it to start of with the logo appearing somehow and stay on screen for a few seconds and the disappear as a wisp of smoke.

Generally speaking though we are open to any and all suggestions anyone has to make for a new logo.

Photoshop's repousse tool is pretty good for this.
just as an example of what it can do...



I don't have time to render any animation of it, but its capable of doing so.

Greetings,

Thanks Kyle for taking the time to do that, it looks really good. I think I would like something like this incorperated into the final design.

In reply to 3D Joe and Maximilianibus, I have an idea of a new animated logo now. Would it be possible to have stars with a glowing trail fly onto the screen from all directions but as they reach the center they are actually shimmering shards of glass which then form into lettering like in the picture above. Which then get zapped by lighting or something or a special effect happens and turns the letters from silver to gold.

Let me know your thougts on this.

Okay cool, thanks Maximilianibus. There was also another part of our first project which needs to be done. Our opening scene is where the camera starts of looking at the Milky Way from a distance with the milky way being just a small white speck in the middle of the screen.

The camera then slowly flies forward into the milky way, past the sun and finally to earth where it keeps flying to the surface of earth where upon the frame is filled is blurred with a white and blueish haze and this will cross fade to the next scene.

Any ideas on how I could do this or does anyone think that maybe able to make something like this.

Cheers
Jonny

The very first frame of this sequence will be a tiny white dot in the centre of the screen to represent the mily way which gradually gets bigger until we see something like the picture below.  It keeps flying through space until we reach earth.

You're not just going to need the Milky Way, you'll also need some satellite galaxies like the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds. I could probably help, but it would need at least four sequences. And that could take a while. If you need it soon, Celestia may be helpful. http://shatters.net/celestia/

It seems to me that a company that features creation of animations would want to create its own animated logo material as a means of showing their capabilities... ?
