The midterm for this course is really meant to be stage one of a two stage, semester long project, culminating with the final project. In general, I suggest that you begin with an identity design (or re-design, if applicable), and then create some animated assets around this identity. This would then carry forward into the final project, where you would create some longer form content around this identity. Let's take a look at an example. And here is another.

That said, I am very open to any and all ideas, so feel free to come up with something different and we can discuss whether it’s feasibile. 


Midterm: The Broadcast Identity

  • Create your own broadcast, corporate, app, game identity. You could develop an identity for something real or fictional. With this identity in hand,
  • Create a logo/identity animation 

    • For broadcast or corporate-based projects, create concepts, sketches, thumbnails and, if necessary, storyboards for a logo animation or title intro, a bump or stinger, interstitial or wipe, and lower 3rds. 

    • For game or app-based designs, develop logo intros, examples of game graphics, and user interface animations. 

  • Finally, create other elements that work towards a complete graphics package for tv show, e.g.:

    • Sports network

    • primetime drama

    • terrible reality show

    • Adult Swim interstitial
