Leaflet Designs

I think I am going to design a leaflet for my third element because it is a simple and effective way to widely spread information that is not overly costly. These are a few pages/images of the leaflet designs.

Exhibition Boards

These are some of the designs I did based on the possible idea of having an exhibition board as the third element. I've never done anything like it before so don't think I will carry on with it but it was fun to at least play around with.

Night before branding viral hand in...

Just realized that I took out the section in my viral which included the course title because I was going to re-do it and then forgot to put it back in! So unfortunately that will be missing from my viral ... 

Finishing touches to the Branding Viral

To finish the viral I added in the quote at the beginning and decided to put some general static noise behind the text so that it wasn't completely silent. I put the quote first in the hope that my viral would reflect the message behind the quote. To end the viral I included the university logo to remind the viewer where the viral had come from.

Branding Viral Soundtrack

I went through a few possible songs for the viral soundtrack before I settled. I played around with the idea of using generic background music but decided that I wanted to use a song which I was familiar with so then I could picture it fitting with the viral. In future I plan to pick the soundtrack early on so that I don't have to try and make the footage fit to the song because I think it would have been easier doing it the other way round.
I edited the song 'super massive black hole by Muse' in garage band so that the opening instrumental was longer and I could fit in most of my footage before the vocals start, however when it came to load it into final cut it wouldn't accept the file type.

So instead of trying to use the edited track I imported the original version of the song into final cut and then edited it in, using the sound waves on the sound layer.

Final Cut

Over the past few weeks I have been compiling my video footage into Final Cut, I have never used this software before and can't say that i'm overly fond of it. Like most software it gets easier to use when you use it more often but there are things about it which make it slightly frustrating, like having to wait for things to render but I suppose you would get that with any kind of video editing software.
I wanted to show how some of the effects had worked out and what it made the footage look like when they were overlaid. I think that the opaque effect works really well with the video and the message I was trying to get across with in the viral.

Song for viral

This is the song that I putting my viral video to. I picked this song because its fun to listen to and has a very definitive beat which I works well with my viral because its stop motion. The song still has the vocals on it because I don't know how to either edit them out or find a version without! But its a good song either way :)
