We would recommend to remove the following scenes that can be done without an additional charge and will help bring the duration down:
001724 - 002137
Remove this section entirely but leave the Orange Army shot in.
It would read 'During this 79 day period...' ... 'Over 600,000 hours of work will be carried out to deliver the Derby Resignalling Project'
Reason: We haven't created these scenes yet and this section feels a bit vague and not that important to the message or story of the video.
006378 - 006506
Remove the scene 'Further signalling equipment is installed and tested on all track sections laid to date for safety'
Reason: We seen a lot of installation and testing scenes already.
006506 - 006639
Remove the scene 'Improvements to platforms 2,4,5 and existing platform 6 continue along with the renewal of Spondon Level Crossing'
Reason: We've already seen the station a few times and Spondon is well documented earlier.
Alternatively we could continuing as we are based on the approved animatic, and then quote for creating a separate cut down version edit on Monday?
Very important things to note with regards to proof...
This should read '11 sets of points' in the list
001724 - 002137
The info graphic section from has not yet been created and could be dropped, but leaving the orange army scene as suggested above.
003115 - Onwards
Assume all right hand info panels beyond 2:06 e.g. Days 1-9, 9-23 with train disruption info etc are all place holders and have the wrong information on. We are updating these dates and information panels as we progress chronological through the video. So this will not make sense at this stage.
003115 - Onwards
We have created most 3d scenes here but not yet done any nice scene transitions and the shots are crudely cut together. These will be smoother like the first 2 minutes.
Please find our animatic above. This is very basic in terms of animation and look, but it is essentially proofing the edit, content and all text wording for approval. As previously discussed the animation is almost 2 minutes longer than planned and we're struggling to find anywhere to save time - if anything some slides might need a touch longer. This is something to discuss asap. Please see our animation tests and style frames below to get a feel for how the finished video will look. We have supplied the timecode reference on each example so you can relate these to the moment in the animatic.
Animation Test - Timecode 000167 The title card appears and we see Derby station behind. This will be the proposed Derby station not the current versions shown here. This is meant to entice the viewer to watch to the end.
Animation Test - Timecode 000577 We approach Derby station for the first time and see the current layout
Animation Test - Timecode 005900 Days 37 to 44 - Track relaid from Derby to St Mary's This test shows how the track will highlight and the UI that delivers the text and additional date information.
Style Frame - Timecode 000167 The title card appears and we see Derby station behind. This will be the proposed Derby station not the current versions shown here. This is meant to entice the viewer to watch to the end.
Style Frame - Timecode 000332 We zoom into the UK map and focus in on Derby.
Style Frame - Timecode 000459 We zoom into Derby - following the track from Birmingham.
Style Frame - Timecode 000523 We arrive at the current Derby station a series of train arrive before we pull out to see the bottleneck.
Style Frame - Timecode 000768 Title card before we detail what's already been done without affecting train services...
Style Frame - Timecode 001473 Title card appears with a calendar showing us the full duration of the main work.
Style Frame - Timecode 001076 We tick off the list one by one and see the areas highlight and pins drop onto the map at the relevant locations.
Style Frame - Timecode 002524 We first show the East bus service and then show the west.
Style Frame - Timecode 004012 We zoom over to spondon and see the current layout with CCTV. A label appears and a counter increases to show work has now begun. At the base of the screen we see a horizontal calendar showing the main events and progress.
Style Frame - Timecode 004621 We move to the station and see a similar progress graphic. We could possibly have completed tasks down the left as shown and one ticks each time? We're not sure if you have this information available but if we can condense this to say major tasks it could work.
Style Frame - Timecode 006498 The familiar title card that heads each 'milestone' section. Each section will be colour coded and we will be reminded of the dates on the calendar and affected train services.
Timecode 005900 Days 37 to 44 - Track relaid from Derby to St Mary's The track highlights and the UI delivers the text and additional date information.
