This is a short logo animation idea for Fuel Tv I created in Maya. Tell me your thoughts and suggestions, thanks.

I think the concept/idea is great! It could use a better background though- black :(

That's pretty cool, looks kind of silly though.

Maybe add some more realistic looking textures, and a better background. Like someone stated, the concept/idea behind it is great; it just needs a few touch ups to look professional. It looks good, but it could be amazing if you tweak it a bit more. Just my two cents :)

Yeah, it still needs a bit of work and I some realistic movement. Thanks guys for the advice.

I agree with the comments above, plus since Fuel is a more "extreme" [for the lack of a better word] channel, I think your camera movement needs to be faster, sharper, snappier... also, when the deck [sk8 board] flips to reveal the logo, try not to dolly out too far, stay close and tight.

great stuff mate, keep it up.

Agreed! Now it looks to much like a 90's computer intro movie. You know ( sorry to sound harsh, I couldnt do it ) those lame ones that where in front of budget shows!

If you put some faster music behind it, make it go faster and maybe the classical slowmo when you can see the logo it would spice this up really nice!

It was kinda boring.. So boring that it crashed firefox... Thats not a joke! It really did!

So yeah, I think it would be awesome if you shot some footage out side and then added in the skateboard later.
Add some cool effects like sparks flying off the rail. Sweet sounds. And just speed the thing up!
The reset button was my idea.

It's very nice this animation but changes BG color (it's too black)
