Quite a learning curve especially on layering and timing multiple DVE's and building layers of composited keys, cropped animation elements with masks and background mattes.
The original animated graphics art was a single full screen animation with all of the different elements you see in the video drawn in a circular pattern around the logo in an order that somewhat matched the script visually but was half the time length. The final version incorporates more than sixty individual elements in three layers roughly corresponding to upper, middle, and lower thirds elements.
The soundtrack was edited in Mixbus from the best parts of four different narration tracks and a looped music bed. Then the video was constructed and timed to the soundtrack.
I would especially appreciate some feedback on the sound mix since I'm not trusting my old ears so much these days. Reference monitor is a pair of AKG Studio 240 headphones with Sonarworx Dirac EQ and phase correction applied. I was trying to match the narration quality to the music bed for timbre and reverb so it sounds like it is all in the same environment.
