Need an Idea

Postby jhnboyko on 08/8/2008, 8:12 pm

Hey, I am putting together a video for an "Internal Sales Pitch" at my company. Granted, I got a lot of ideas from Video Copilot (as you'll be able to see), but there is a black screen I have that has text fade in and out -- I was wanting some help on how to make this look more appealing. Thanks for any help.

I think you should just continue with the white background. Keep with the same theme.
Also try cutting down the text so its not a long line. It makes the text smaller and harder to read.
The reset button was my idea.

I was thinking the same thing -- That is just a space filler basically right now. Its done in pretty high res too, so the text will actually be bigger. Also -- just incase, the pitch is called Element of the sale -- so thats why i replicated the Adobe Icons -- figured it didn't hurt. Not actually making any money on this, lol.

You need to change the font on: pricing & availability. It's not the easiest to read.

Make empowering your customers glow or maybe even have some electric current running trough or over Customers. That way it really looks like your empowering them!

And some texts go off-screen a bit fast!

keep your theme in mind and the type of client you are working for.

Thanks for the help and ideas -- There are a couple more Ideas (lens flares and such) that I will add to the "completely finished" copy -- but this was the end result. Any more tips would be helpful!

Watch your spelling too! It would be no good to undo your hard work with poor spelling.

eg you used "consentrate" instead of concentrate. "ocurring" instead of occurring...

Cheers,
