Broad City & Title Credit Ideas

Pardon me for the lateness tonight, I decided to watch the Rio Closing Olympic Ceremonies with my mother. I hadn’t had a chance prior to this…although I still never saw the Opening Ceremonies for that matter. Absolutely beautiful designs and costumes. Had fun watching.

I am planning for one more day before I finalize a project for the Title Credits Contest. I’m debating another idea of using the Broad City credits and replacing it with NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). It’d be fun. If I can’t decide on a title credit to mimic I might do that instead. I’m struggling because I have existing ideas for these book stories, and can’t seem to find title credits that feel similar creatively…or at least possible for my timeframe, skill level, and equipment. Additionally I’m tempted to wait until I finish reading the books I’ve been working on this past week. Just so I have more material to work with.

I did come to another idea for the titles…but I’m reluctant just because it’d be a huge pivot. It’d be turning my selfi animation into title credits… It seems perfect, but I’m feeling a little guilt in letting go of all the existing work. I don’t know…I almost want to make two different animations now. The one I’ve been working on and then a title sequence… The question is if I want to enter that into the contest? or just make my own entirely? If anyone has any thoughts on this let me know…

I put the Broad City credits below so you can see the fun energetic feeling they have. If I take that route it’d be easy to recreate for NaNoWriMo. It also adheres to the creative kooky brand NaNo writes in. So lots of potential. Also promotion for my favorite nonprofit. If you have time I also recommend reading through the title process on Art of the Title. It’s interesting to see how the ideas come about and how they transform.

Animation Inspiration 73 | Backpack Sketch & Interactive Olympic Site

Drew another backpack sketch while watching Syd Weiler’s Twitch stream today. I like going on there to watch other people create. It’s inspiring and motivating. The problem is that my computer overheats if I watch a stream and try to animate at the same time. It’s fun to sketch, but I would prefer animating at the same time. Oh well, as long as I’m creating something.

Also sharing this awesome website about some of the Olympic athletes. I like the incorporation of motion graphics and video as it explains how each of the athletes move. If you have time I recommend going through each of the featured people. It’s very interesting. Love the interactivity of the site. I’m enjoying the trend of using videos as the site background.
