Article Focus:
The independent film "Juno" featured one of the most distincitive opening credit sequences in recent memory. It has a wonderful handmade look - which it turned out was created, painstakingly, by hand. Cow leader Simon Bonner shows a much easier way to get all the way there. Even if you haven't seen Juno, this is a great tutorial for creating unique, handcrafted looks, without the pain.

i'll try it out ,

i was just wondering because clips from other tutorials are playing fine, it's just this particular one that won't play.

Oliver, why videos are sometimes not seen...

We have found that in our experience, some users use so many pop-up ad blockers and anti-spyware filtering software on their machines that it causes "pre-emptive" filtering on all kinds of content.

Also, in most all the other cases when this is not due to filters, it is a firewall problem.

Unfortunately, neither of these is in our control and so we can do nothing about them. The files are online and they are working as they should.

Thanks!

WICKED MATE! how about the scribble line effect in the credit text? Is there a simple way to do that as well?
Creating the Juno Opening Credits Look
by Simon Bonner
Thanks, Christopher!

The Shadowplay way to create that text (as far as I can gather) is to hand print the letters, photocopy them, trace the copy several times and colour in these tracings, and finally scan them back into the computer before compositing in AE. A quicker, though not as visually interesting, method is to use a similar typeface (like Agent Orange) and play around with the scribble effect. Aharon has a couple of tutorials on that effect here at the Cow.

What Are Adobe Motion Graphics Templates?

A Motion Graphics Template, referred to as a MOGRT, is an animated sequence that is self-contained and can be used in Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Premiere Rush and Adobe After Effects, combining graphics, text, audio and video files, as well as vector or still images (including logos), to create a still or animation that can then be customized by the MOGRT user. The result is a dynamic creative tool that provides design freedom and is consistent to its users across apps and devices. Reuse, share, and even sell them!
