Wups. sorry for the delay. i was off for the weekend and didn’t notice the reply

I don’t have a hard deadline, I just can’t think of anything. Sometimes this happens to me. I’ve got a project and I’m at a loss for inclusions. Of course the client’s answer to the timeline is always ‘yesterday’.

here are the key factors I should be included. Now, the actual content is irrelevant, as i can chan ge any data, but by seeing my overall requirements you get an idea of what i’d be looking for.

Possible explanation of the SDLC (the security development life cycle) i have this data Dynamic and static data presentation (not necessarily static, but definitely dynamics. here we would likely use elements from a template that has infographics)

Increase in cost but return on investment (veracode is an example here)

Mentions of things like secure coding frameworks (an example, PHP is HORRIBLY insecure so there are 3rd parties that ‘harden’ code, and hardware to circumvent intrusion)

vulnerability and testing.

These all come out as bullet points to a power point presentation and that is usually what happens, but we have an opportunity to take it one step further and create a good solid video. voiceover is an option. i do some myself but have some pros I could hire.

These are all keys that are used in this industry. I know this because my company is actually a development studio for web work and we do all of these things as we focus primarily on security development for enterprise clients. The video work is something I do as a value added service to our clients. I’m not a pro, but I can do quite a bit. I’ve found it MUCH easier to come here and find templates. However I do it differently than most. i will buy multiple templates and take parts from each to build a single end product. I also don’t send customers here, as I find the huge number of templates can actually create delays in choice.; So i go through, find the projects I think will help, and buy them. I then either render those out to show a client, or put together a single product with several templates as parts if that makes sense.

So what my goal here is, to find a template that is security driven and by that I mean mostly the eye candy with some neat cgi if that makes sense. A template that uses source code as a backdrop is an example. one that I do own is ‘decoder’ which has a really thin resemblence. http://videohive.net/item/decoder/1958632 the beginning appears to be dimensional source. but you get the idea.

i’m kind of all over the place and I know this isn’t a typical idea, but I will say, as ALL of our clients are enterprise level websites that deal with security, this is the fastest growing sector of the web right now, and is going to be much much bigger. This kind of thing should get some focus at some point.

great question. Not the way that video is, this is really a teaser/advertisement that i’m looking for. I have just come up blank thinking on what to do making one fresh

thanks guys

that one’s not bad, but it looks more like a corporate intro. a little too generic for such a specific industry. Not that it’s a bad template, i’ve seen it before and like it, it just doesn’t really fit (though it does relate)

I honestly don't have a concept yet other than it's security based. I guess I could create something by buying one of those hud packs, or those infographics and do it basically on text. but that's just so boring.

this client does PCI compliance and is an expert company in the security industry (online security) mostly dealing with payment processing and hacking protection. that kind of thing

I’m looking for a template that has to do with online security

I did some searches and the onlyl thing even close that I found was one with home networking.

Does anyone know of a template that focuses on security?

I should follow one thing up

My problem with working at home is MY fault, and not the fault of the process. it’s because I’m not very good at forcing myself to walk away from the work. I WISH i could do so

I absolutely hate working from home.

My background is in Enterprise IT project management. for 25 years I traveled the country as a consultant, but in 2008 I was forced to come off the road to tend to family members who were ill.

Extenuating circumstances have made this permanent, but in 08, coming off the road, my self and my business partner started our own studio. We’ve done work together since 1996 on web sites, but always a side project.

We currently have some large clients, and have been working for a while now. We hire developers as needed but keep it small.

The reason i dislike it, is it blurs the line from work/home. I end up working probably twice the hours because it’s too easy to jump into my office and work. In fact, over the last two months I’ve considered renting office space somewhere just so i will have separation. I could then work my hours, and when it’s time to close up, actually close..

It also messes badly with my sleep schedule. I’m not disciplined enough to force regular sleep, so there are probably 3 times per week that I work through the entire night and dont sleep. If I had a separate office that would not happen.

I think if I were married and had kids it would be different because they would keep my schedule regular, but as it is, I HATE working from home.

I have been begging for this feature for MONTHS, and I’m so thrilled it’s here.

I had to take some time off and have not been doing nearly as much purchasing, but things are about to ramp up so i will be using this new process a lot.

My whole complaint was, when i was hunting for things, i had to see a list, make a click to go to it, then click the preview button, then click again to close it, then click ‘back’ to go back to my list. so to view a demo it took 4 clicks and 3 complete page loads.

I had a long conversation with Damir months ago about how much i thought this would improve things. For me it’s monumental in ease of locating a project i want.

This is GREAT

Guess you already saw this one?? http://videohive.net/item/hardwood/3973934?WT.ac=search_item&WT.seg_1=search_item&WT.z_author=CarlB

honestly this one at the very beginning is what I’m thinking. if someone has some ideas on engraved wood like this i’m all ears.

http://videohive.net/item/retro-titles-11-logo-10-mockup-textures-/6811028

yeah i did see it, thanks for the help. But it’s just not quite the right type.

i can’t believe i’m having such a brainfart. i usually have something in mind within a few hours. i’ve been going on a week here.

I did put some flourishes and retro badges together. that might work, it’s traditional type…. sort of.

this is the one I’m sort of thinking about. it really doesn’t fit, but i just can’t think of anything else. http://videohive.net/item/vintage-logo/3915225

dangit, again i’m not getting my notices. i need to fix that

as far as length, it’s flexible. i have 3 minutes of video of a person carving i’ll ramp to about 10 seconds. So in reality I only need about a 10 second clip.

i found a couple, one actually sort of looks like carving at one point if I alter the clip art.

hoping someone will have a great idea for me :)
