One down, 6 to go...

Well, I've managed to recreate the title sequence in Final Cut.

play video Hello Tokyo title sequence. 0'46" (4.2 MB QT)

In terms of fancy editing, this is certainly the most challenging of the seven segments. It incorporates superimpose edits with image masks, super track fades, scrolling text and some other trickery. This version isn't exactly the same as the first one (check it out if you missed it) but it's acceptably similar.

Now I'm stuck into the next sequence, Phrases, and it's going relatively smoothly. One good thing about redoing the entire project is that I get to review and rethink my original edits. I'm paying closer attention to the audio sweetening this time. Tomorrow morning I will be creating a loop of "street noise" to play behind some of the voice overs.

I think the new one looked a lot better than the last one. Keep up the good work!

I kept seeing spots appear in front of my eyes....(~^)

Hey Kristen, just downloaded this on our third world ADSL. Yup, we got it, albeit 512kbps which is almost shameful in comparison with your 0th world action. And we have a 3GB/month cap!

Anyway didn't mean to rant on about broadband. This looks great, instantly I was transported back to how Tokyo felt, the mandatory convenience store shot was much appreciated. I'll make sure Shannon sees it as soon as her delayed flight back from Lagos kicks itself into gear.

Well there was your earthquake!!! A little late tho...
