As a post-production artist, you may spend a lot of time at your computer working and sweating to make your ideas come to life. Before you begin on this journey, it's important to collect ideas from the world beyond the screen.
- [Instructor] In this movie we're going to talk about collecting ideas for your title sequence and we'll divided this into three sections. Section one has to do with collecting ideas outside. Depending on the synopsis for your title sequence, you can grab a still camera, or just your mobile phone and start to capture material or ideas that could be relevant to the idea that you're going to pitch. So a lot of times, your phone is perfect. You can grab it. You're going to carry it all the time and to use this device to capture ideas that inspire you and collect them, is a great resource. Besides your phone, you can grab a simple DSLR camera or mirrorless camera if it's at your disposal, not to mention roll video in certain circumstances if that is helpful as well. Now if you're in a situation like me and Iran where in our client brief, we are supposed to use assets from Adobe Stock. Performing searches in various categories of Adobe Stock were super helpful. So right now I just did a simple search for Venus. And you'll see here on Adobe Stock, I can see a ton of stills that I can access and then purchase and download and share through library which we'll cover a little bit later. Not to mention if I need to I can come up here and simply search for just video assets if that was my primary goal, and see previews of those assets. I can download these files into the Adobe ecosystem so I can access them in Premiere Pro with watermark versions and make sure that I'm comfortable. Ahead of time is based on the storyboard that I put together. This is just a great idea to see the content that's available and that you can grab to then form your actual storyboards for the title sequence. On top of this, for our specific synopsis we also used NASA as a resource. In fact, if you type NASA image library, you'll be brought to a website where you can download images directly from NASA that you can download for free in certain circumstances. I highly suggest that you check with the NASA site in the instances that you can use the material without having to contact them. There are certain instances like you can never use the NASA logo without permission. Besides collecting content which we've talked about online as well as capturing it through your phone outside or a DSLR camera, we need to have a repository for where all our images go. I've talked about earlier in the course with Iran about using Pinterest, and here is a collection of ideas for our first title sequence and ideas that inspired us throughout this creation of what we saw through the art of the title. So you can see here some ideas that we collected. If you don't want to share through Pinterest because it is too public, there are other services that are both free and paid for as well. One that I just came across is called Milanote. And the cool part about this service is there is a free account which I'm currently using. You can create a board by simply dragging that board over. And I'm going to type in this board ideas for Venus. Once I double click to go inside the board, I can show ideas in a bunch of different ways so I can upload files that downloaded or add images. On top of that I can just come over here and add a connecting URL link. I've already copied a link from NASA over here. You'll see once I press return, it's going to create a thumbnail. This can be a great tool for developing ideas freely as well as ordering the board any way you see fit. Depending on the plan, you're limited to a certain amount of space. This can be a great repository for collecting all of your ideas. So there you have it, collecting ideas for your title sequence.
