We were approached by the Student Radio Awards committee to create a series of hold screens and small animations for the upcoming Student Radio Awards 2018. This included nomination and winner lists that would be played whilst the hosts was hosting.
The Student Radio Awards is an event that has been running yearly for twenty two years. Supported by BBC Radio 1 and Global the awards are a celebration of student radio, with over one hundred and fifty industry professionals judging thirteen categories with over six hundred entries. The nominees are cut dow to bronze, silver and the overall winner of each category wins gold.
What was Involved?
The animations that were created for the Student Radio Awards was a great project that was enjoyable for everyone involved. Elements included in this project were-
To start off with we were provided with all the assets needed to be included in the animations and holding screens, things like images, logos and font e.g. As well and a list of all the nominees for each of the awards as well as a list of all the winners.
There were essentially three different types of videos we had to make:
.Videos listing out the nominees for each of the awards in time with audio. (NOMs)
.Holding screens showing the winner of each award. (WINs)
.A few other animations including holding screens showing the Student Radio Awards Logo, an intro video for the awards and into videos for the hosts of the awards.
We were told the over all desired look for all the videos as they had to fit in with the overall design and theme of the awards themselves.
From there all the videos were made on After Effects using all the resources we were given and a bit of creative input from us, things like using particle effects looping in the background to emulate the sparkling effects on all of the awards static posters and promotional material.
