:30 PSA w/all new client revision :)

Recommended Posts

Guest JR

Producer dumped this in my lap, he wanted particle Illusion FIreworks--thought that was the most gay thing ever ! Most of my day was spend cutting/painting bkg. Had no control over fonts. This is what i can up with.. does it work or not ?

 

and there's a slight z-space issue with bkg

 

Thanks

 

JR

Last screen could come up a little earlier - it might not time correctly with the VO but at least you'd be able to read them all...

VO could stand to be a little hotter too. It sounds like it was recorded on a dynamic mic :(

Ahh, Indy. My hometown!

 

What if you mixed on second line ("more than...") after you reveal the first ("Over 360")

 

Yeah, too much type. Perhaps you can cut down the type to the basics. We already know the PSA is about fireworks. The type could simply say "More than 8000 Injuries each year" "Over 360 in Indiana last year")

 

Otherwise, it looks good for what it is. It appears to be a sales department creation, no?

Tell them you need a Video Toaster to do the level of work they require.

I know we're all sick of this spot, but here is the Revised spot. Like I said the Client hated my 30. I know it's not perfect but best i could do in a day. Here is what the Client wanted and thought was the best thing since sliced bread. Try not to piss yourself. So for anyone who thinks they have it bad here you go......!!!!

JR... you're treatment... MUCH better. I didn't really like the font in either, but how in the hell could your client like the latest one more than the first one??? Market 25 doesn't know what good design is...

It was either that or they were going to make me drink the Kool-Aid ! But seriously, I hate to beat a dead horse here but, from the beginning they had zero input/ideas of what they wanted and left me with nothing. So that is what i came up with. After seeing it, they suddenly thought, "Hmmm, well that's gay and not what we had in mind.... how about some really cheesy fireworks with fonts over it."

 

I'm not saying my original concept was great design, but damn...that second one is wicked bad tv.

 

Thanks for watching and that is my pick/entry for zacid's contest btw

wow that is fucking gay, i'm sorry dude. indianapolis is one of the worst cities ever.

I'm in market 148. The clients are remarkably forgiving. The ads are almost all done by TV stations (usually for free or near-free, in order to secure the airtime buy). We can do fun work, but typically with little time or budget.

that's how it goes here as well. Usually we can do some fun stuff because we don't have to worry about budgets, etc. I like our station cause i get to do such a wide variety of work, pay isn't bad, they keep us happy generally with gear and most of the time i get to be a real control whore.......but sometimes a real "gem" like this comes along. What can i say, i've been doing this for quite a while now. I'm in a real stable comfort zone and it's hard to get motivated to move yet again.

oh and it doens't matter what midwest city ---they're all the same, countertops, tanning beds, 100's of car to choose from, doors and windows. If all i did was local commercials and didn't get to do fun promotional spots and some mograph I woud have been a jumper a long time ago.

I'm in market 68 or 70 (I don't remember anymore as it keeps growing so fast.) and things are pretty much the same. We get to spend extra time sometimes on a special project. We also have 8 radio stations in the building and we do all of the creative for them.

 

I worked in Orlando and they had cheap car commercials like anywhere else. I think my favorite Indy spots are with the guy selling guns. "I don't want to make money, I just love to sell guns!"

 

Remember, in New York, they had "Crazy Eddys" and "Nobody beats the WIZ". Los Angeles had "Cal Worthington and His Dog Spot".

 

If it would make you feel any better, we just received a "Red White and Boom" spot. It was produced by a local company called "Video Transfer Station". It's the worst spot I have ever seen... ever. The "dub" came to us on a DVD-R.

we had cal worthington in seattle too when i was a kid in the early 80s. the big joke was, his theme song went "go see cal, go see cal, go see cal!" but it sounded a LOT like "pussy cow, pussy cow, pussy cow!" which of course was hilarious to a 7 year old that barely knew what it meant (i just knew you weren't supposed to say "pussy").

 

edit: apparently i'm not the only one who heard it that way:
