When I was working at the BBC I was asked to create some stings – stings are the short little idents that appear between the programs.
These were to appear between programs at the media buying conference in Brighton. This also included some sound design and composition.
I did one set of generic stings at full HD resolution in After Effects, some using depth of field camera blur – in the end they preferred the simplest – the lens flare (first one). The concentric circles are part of BBC Worldwide’s brand -sadly they aren’t all complete circles!
As my server is a little slow, it might be best to press play and pause and let the video preload before playing through – also Chrome or Safari recommended as Firefox’s flash video playback is a little choppy.
