In regards to the MK footage, I was confused with the CC attribution it was under on youtube/vimeo/wherever, and basically had a run in with the project. It was investigated by a senior reviewer, and he allowed it. I also made sure to ask permission from NR studios themselves just to be on the safe side in regards to how the footage can be used. I can’t speak for others, but it wasn’t simply me not caring, especially since I like to believe I’ve done my homework. I do apologize for any confusion.
I’m assuming my project for AE section will be uploaded tomorrow, in which case it will be 7 days (6 days + 1 resubmission).
I would agree, but there are a few lower third templates that were just approved that were much more basic than this. There are also a few in the popular files that’s extremely basic (literally just a box and text).
Sorry folks, it wasn’t hard rejected, just soft due to a few quality standards. I should’ve took the time to fully comprehend the rejection letter before posting what I posted. Though, I thank you guys for the support!
Anyway, to jump back on topic: 12 days for this one, and my other project is going on day 5.
Hi, I absolutely agree with everything the reviewer wrote. You must stick to a certain style: 1-2 colors and 1-2 typefaces. It’s the most basic rule of design. About the lower 3rd: try to make it simpler, it really seams like from another project. Even top and bottom lines are weirdly different. Also align the text in the lower third. But the rest of the project is impressive.
Thanks for the feedback, I must have forgotten about this rule. With that said, I know what I need to do.
Wow man, you got me worried when you posted in the other thread that this project got hard rejected.
But now that I see there’s an actual comment on what to fix it’s actually okay.
Just make sure you design the lower thirds in the same style as the rest of your project, animate it.
Trust the reviewer. If you improve the things he pointed out, your overall sales will be much better than if it was directly accepted in this state.
Sorry about that, I woke up and read the email too fast before posting in the other thread. You’re right, I’ll fix on the issues and see where it takes me. Thanks.
I need some help on this project. I thought it was hard rejected at first (woke up to a rejection letter, saw red basically) until I reread it and saw the reviewer was kind enough to go into details about the issues he/she had with the design, and has allowed me to resubmit it after certain changes. Here’s the video in question:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acSEq_fJGsE&feature=youtu.be
Here’s what the reviewer said and what I need help with:
For first 40seconds you have a really nice and adequate titles. then you suddenly change to a dated font and title design that doesn’t look good. Please stick to the same font and title design.
Also your graphics and transitions look really nice, but those lower thirds look like from another project. Design, style and graphics are poor quality and doesn’t meet our standards. Please rework your lower thirds.
There was more to the letter, but it mainly had to do with symbols on the car scene and the MK footage, all in which I can clear up and I’m not worried about that part.
What concerns me is I know the title design and lower thirds aren’t the best around, and I probably should’ve been more consistent with the font, but I didn’t think they were THAT bad, or at least not bad enough to merit a soft rejection. I was trying to show off versatility while remaining true to the core of the project. The way the project is set up, this is a lot to change for a soft rejection.
I personally feel that this should be re-reviewed by another reviewer, but then again maybe my biased mind clouds my opinion. I want to be open minded about this.
So now I turn to you guys in search of guidance.
Ah yes, sorry about that. I’ll start a new thread now.
12 days in the queue, rejected. Here’s the project if anyone is interested:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acSEq_fJGsE&feature=youtu.be
