  1. Hello everyone, our latest edition of "Magnet Newsroom", we reintroduced the headlines segment, using a new transition and AR which I'm very pleased with and our very first on-sciences report, we hope to do this throughout the rest of the year with various students (preferably freshmen and sophomores) to find some potential successors for our current anchor team.
  2. Double post First off, Three Newshub in New Zealand has debuted drastic new graphics (a departure from the flat graphics Newshub has used since becoming Newshub) and set updates, relying heavily on AR. This debuted shortly before the Nov 3rd election, this look being used for election coverage. Now, over in Italy, Rai's flagship newscast TG1, barley a year since debuting their new set and graphics (the first update in 8 years), they just introduced set updates (mainly the floor and lighting), a new intro, revised theme (same as the update last year but removing the bass drop), and slightly updating the rest of the graphics package.
  3. Music I can somewhat understand but the graphics, seriously? I much prefer these to that tired 8 year old package!
  4. Just checked his Facebook and a video from this photoshoot (without the darkened faces) and others pictures of Blair on the set and newsroom are on there, his cover picture is actually of ANF's logo.
  5. Thought that was Blair Miller, who we established would be joining the station soon. Little weird though that Buck Lanford would join in on the confusion.
  6. WHO DESIGNED THESE? This is SOOO much better then The Source and NewsNight's graphics, and those are weekday PRIMETIME shows!
  7. What's the problem that I sense everyone is having? I had to look back at pictures of the last set and this looks different, even if using the same elements, and looks MILES better, is more professional and modern looking in my opinion and is a nice way to have optimize your space, no matter how big or small.
  8. WAGA meteorologist Ryan Beesly is leaving the industry. https://fb.watch/nQeY9258VV/
  9. That's a big deal for WANF, especially since Blair already has a sense of familiarity with Atlanta viewers. It seems that is WANF's strategy (even as CBS46), get big names from other markets instead of promoting their own to the anchor chair permanently (most recent example Rick and Shon, I know Rick was from CNN, what about Shon?)
  10. Hello everyone, Magnet Newsroom has launched, first a few things. 1) With the rebrand, we have moved officially into that spare room I mentioned, trying our best to create a decent set in it. In the coming weeks, we are wanting to 3D print our new logo, (The three hexagons in a box, a motif to the new CBS O&O logo designs and our school's official logo) and hang it up on that bare wall you see at the end, it is going to be huge! 2) We recognize two things, that their were MANY pronunciation errors in this edition and the lighting was TERRIBLE. We plan on purchasing some overhead lights to fix that. 3) With the new graphics, we also have a voiceover, Rebeckka Schram of WANF! Please fill free to leave any comments, questions, or suggestions as we continue experimenting around with our product!
  11. I believe their still on their temporary set.
  12. THIS! Makes sense as the whole perception even in the 90's and 00's was that in the decades to come was graphics were going to become heavily 3D based, which was of course before the rise of smart phones and people getting their news through forms other then TV, look at the Onion's prediction for 2137!
  13. Sorry to sound uninformed but when is Thompson starting again?
  14. NBC's O&O sets have been hit (Miami, Washington, Chicago) or miss (Bay Area) lately. Let's hope they get something nice, how long was the outgoing set in service?
  15. Clips from an updated morning ad for WSB, containing more flatter imagery and maybe some hints to the GMA package, maybe it's own direction? TBH WSB has always had more flat looks (which are ten times better then what's on air) for commercials.
  16. Actually for some reason this has been happening for most of "The Late Show"'s uploads, for some reason on air they'll have the new bug but on YT it'll be the old bug.
  17. Hello everyone, Was working on these graphics that we might launch with our upcoming rebrand, basing them off the new CBS O&O graphics, what do y'all think?
  18. Thank you so much! You are referring to the green screen set used in our most recent episode right? Thanks! Within the industry I'm not the biggest fan of green screens but since we're on a tight (non existing) budget and we had the green screen lying around we thought why not use it though we'd still like to explore using some form of a real set. That new rebrand we are considering switching to is "Magnet Newsroom" and there is a small room with windows that overlooks our media center, giving the view sort of a newsroom feel but as far as how it would look beyond that we're not sure. Also the lighting is bad in there, the lights weren't replaced with brighter ones unlike the rest of our building recently. Both sets seen in that video (the beginning one and the one that darkens at the end) I based them off European sets as I am a fan of most design's coming from there (sets and graphics) and I'm glad it seemed to pay off! In regard to "visual effects", do you mean the overall graphics package (I assume you mean the one we're currently using) or certain aspects of it? I made a concept based off the new CBS O&O look that we might use for the rebrand as well.
  19. Hello everyone! I've been thinking about doing this post, and sharing this with you all for a while now and so now I am doing it. I've mentioned this once or twice I think on the forum before but I am the founder of my school's news program, I am also in charge of editing, as well as doing our graphics, which I've made myself like the many concepts I've posted on here. We started the program late last school year, here is our first episode. This is our first episode of the school year when we started to implement a new graphics package And this is our most recent episode, since our first episode of the year we slighted edited the graphics and started to use a green screen again. In addition we also do a monthly edition in Spanish. I would most appreciate any feedback y'all could give us on the overall product, from both graphics packages, the sets, and the stories from the collective experience's across the industry from the overall way we do things, etc as we try our best to put out a professional product out each week, as when you look online for other high school news programs, they are not this professional or as concise IMO. Also, we are considering a rebrand in the coming weeks as one of the challenges we have faced is being confused with our school's weekly newsletter which is of the same name.
  20. Sky News UK or Sky News Australia? BIG DIFFERENCE. If the former, that'd be great, if the latter.... Maybe that's self explanatory!
  21. New studio and graphics for France 2's news programs, including 20h and 13h. Set is smaller then their last one, which was huge, but is a nice successor and the graphics are just as elegant.
  22. Well with Mark coming in soon, probably so will changes to the schedule, including CNN This Morning. I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this but here I am anyway. I asked A.I to make a list of possible names that CNN could go with, if they do indeed decide to get rid of the This Morning name, here it is. - CNN Sunrise - CNN Daybreak - CNN Morning Report - CNN Wake Up Thoughts?
  23. Looks like a KPHO/WANF mix
  24. Second image looks perfect, I hope that is what they do for election coverage, but I agree with you on everything else, either it's too small or too large, they need one size for all to fit with the LIVE bug, I'm actually glad the bug returned for this as if it didn't, it admittedly would have looked more off.
  25. Wait did the name "CNN This Morning" look so squished in the 2014 lower thirds? It makes sense to me to just shorten the titles like I do in my concepts (CNN This Morning/This Morning, Erin Burnett Outfront/Outfront)
