Hi guys,
this is a repost from another forum....

I am working on an 3d animated ad for a computer consulting company, that requires a nerdy animated T-Rex.

I have made two sketches for the piece, one cartoony
one more or less realistic.

I am attaching the sketches, and I would love to hear your input.

Thanks

-Roberto

Is nr 1 supposed to be nr 2's boss?
He looks like mine :)

Tell us where you're going with your ad, what's the concept?
What is the dinosaur going to do in the ad? Give us a context, it's hard to tell now.

The second looks most nerdy, but I gess you figured that one out yourself allready :hmm:

Thanks for the quick response...

The Ad is for a consulting company called
MicroBytes.

Their motto is
"Our Nerds have more byte"
and the first ad is a Nerd Dino
attacking the MicroBytes logo.

The first one is not a nerd. Nerds are not that agressive.
How about the second one with an enormous OVERbite? LOL

2nd's a lot better :thumbsup:

Be carefull not to make him look dumb. Clients hate that.
Why is he attacking the logo? Is the company THAT bad?

Don't want to be offensive, I just spend halve my live in advertising.

Good luck,

Well I wanted to emphasize the fact that
"Our Nerds are better than their nerds"
Thus more aggressive.

The idea is that at the end he throws a letter
from the logo to the "camera " and then he
jumps on top of the "camera man".

"Agression" does not equal "better"
So... at a higher nerdiness-level.

Howabout this:
---
A simple zooming in on an extremely nerdie looking person, with a giant overbite. (maybe nerdie music like Abba in the background).
Text-over (=that english, mean like a voiceover in text) reads: "thank goodness he could never get a girl in highschool when there comes smoke out of your server".
or
"he's our biggest stud... your network will love him when it goes down".

Logo, payoff, etc.

---

Or something like that.

Sorry dude.
But that's what happens when you get a deus-ex-machina in your concept-thinking. :twisted:
****s up your mind doesn't it...

BTW There's an allmost identical one running as a print-campain here in Holland for XS4all. I know, all you dutch guys.

Okay I'll try another idea..

How about this:
---
Using the idea of an extremely nerdie looking t rex
reading a tech manual in a cubicle/server room.

"Our tech people are hungry monsters for knowledge... your network will love him when it goes down".

And the t-rex eats the book ater reading it.
