I once got this brief from a client who wanted a logo animation…
“I think the tone should be: Credible but not over-earnest. Grown up but not boring. Light of touch but not glib or cheesy. Perhaps witty, but definitely not overly comedic. Friendly but not over familiar. Confident but not arrogant. Contemporary but not contrived. Light but not lightweight.”
I’m still waiting for a reply to my email in which I asked for the brief to be supplied in English.
@Smudgethis, thanks for the tips dude and I’ll have to have a watch through those videos!
What’s this transformer you’re talking about? I’ll be taking a MacbookPro Retina which has a relatively small/light power supply – won’t I just need a convertor to stick on the end of the plug?
I’m referring to the white square block between the plug and the power connector. On a mac it ain’t too bad but with an ipad you just need a usb cable and most good international plug adaptors (of which you will need one anyway) will have a usb port built in.
It might not sound too important now but when your trecking around with your backpack looking for a hostel in 40 degree heat every kilo counts.
I did a 3 month trip around SE Asia last year and it kicked ass! Started in Thailand, then Cambodia, back up through northern Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Singapore then the southern part of Thailand.
I wouldn’t know what to suggest as the trip has to be your own, a couple of pieces of advice I would give though…
If you have noise cancelling headphones, take them. Most buses around Cambodia and Laos (there’s no trains) play offensively loud music through broken speakers and on a 9 hour journey… well, not fun.
Also, take an ipad or other tablet computer. Most hotels/hostels/cafes have free wifi and for us it was the perfect way to check reviews, prebook etc. hotels in our next destination via agoda and tripadvisor. A lot of people we saw took laptops but the extra weight of the charger and transformer makes that a bad idea.
I made kind of a video blog of my trip using a harinezumi camera. There’s no dialogue but it might give you a preview of places you might want to see whilst on your trip.https://vimeo.com/channels/harinezumingmylife/page:5
(There’s a few other vids of stuff in this channel but you will easily spot the SEAsia ones)
Lastly, have fun you lucky lucky son of a … I am so so jealous.
