What’s going on you guys, thanks for bothering to give a shit for at least a second. Perhaps I can persuade to you click the link below, ooh la la.
Please read the story if you're sitting on the toilet and enjoying a little bit of light reading, or avoiding doing your finals, I know I am... I'd just like to say that being from Seattle, we get a lot of, for lack of a better word, dumb little girls (20-24) year old in college that get annoyingly over-inspired from a Starbucks headquarters tour or something to that nature and decide that they want to go to work for Starbucks when they're done. I've met too many of them keep track of with all the Lincoln Logs and Legos I own. I mean come on... and I digress.
Regardless of that fact, I've found myself in the precarious position – a position quite the opposite. It turns out this chick knows an absolute ton about Starbucks, which allowed me to filter through all her biased information stored in the Siren-esc glow that is ever-present around her and grab some stuff worth noting in an ad.
You might be asking yourself why would I even have to do this in the first place or why you’re wanting to kill yourself for even reading this far and still having gotten nowhere. Personal, I have very little love for this chick, but her drive is there, so I was motivated to bust my ass on this project – oh and my TA was so strict this quarter, so this is to spite her.
Creative input and ideas would be sick to hear from you guys. You guys out there do some talented shit every day. I’d like your creative opinions on it and what you think about it. I already have more ideas that I want to add in for my own satisfaction since the due date has past. But what do you think could be incorporated within the minute-long timeframe of the project. And personally, fuck, thanks for even reading. I’m going to get back to my beer, 16 hours in a lab which doesn’t even include probably 20 additional hours of concept planning.
Time duration for path grouping, layering, and labeling and what not as well as AfterEffects cs5.5 and rendering took 15 hours… and I came out with this. I think I got pretty high mark on this, Cheers all. I really hope you guys approve of this quality of work and effort.
The message isn’t something I assumed everyone will agree with, so if possible try to refrain from bashing me for wasting my time with Starbucks. Yes, Starbucks, you know… that corporate machine that sold our Sonics down a river of shit. The same Starbucks that has shitty burnt Arabica coffee regardless of what blend you buy… yes, that Starbucks. But we won’t take it there in this ad, not this time J that one is for another day, my friend, another day.
Keep in mind I’m a junior in college at UW and haven’t really had any formal training in this area so let me know any constructive criticism but if possible, try not to pummel me. Thanks again all. Bless - fam.
