If I had more time I would have considered placing more symbols and images into it.

Thanks,
Corey

Good job Corey. I think it was a little bit fast (no that much), but it shows the message clearly.

Thanks everyone. It was a little hard to get all the information in 30 seconds, though I do agree. Thanks

At first I had the same thought - it's too fast - but too fast was effectiveon me because you had my full attention as I tried to keep up.

Guess it's a double edged sword. Some will dismiss it because it's too fast while others will be drawn in for the same reason.

Just curious, whatsoftware did you use?

Great job. I watched it a number of times. Fast pace helped keep our attention throughout the segment. I found the text a little hard to read (maybe my old eyes or the settings on my monitor). I was thinking that a border or shadow on text would help it stand out from the backgroundbut with the VO reinforcing the text I didn't have any trouble following along. Once agagin great job!

Thanks everyone for thefeedback. Unfortunately I had to use the light blue on white for the second lot of text as when the camera zoomed in onto the letter, the BG had to be light blue.

And I created this using After Effects CS4, whilst also using Videocopilot's 'Sure Target 2'
