Looks very nice, I like the colors and gaseous space/stars feel a lot.

Since you mentioned the film strip though, that did jump out as a bit stiff right off the bat, after about the first 10 seconds it seems to lose life somehow..I think it's because the curls stop moving, and the end of the strip stays about the same relative distance from the camera. Makes it feel a bit like sentient bacon. If you had more of a "wavey/snakey" feel, i.e the "head" of the strip "kicks" as it moves along its course and as it changes direction, causing/sending the ripples back down the length of the film, I think it would help keep it dynamic, if you can't have the strip constantly getting longer or rolling past the camera.

Other than that maybe a little more twinkle/variation on the logos, or z-depth? I know they have to 'resolve' at a certain point while flying by but maybe leading up to and out of each one's read time.

Just some thoughts, hope they made sense..good stuff!

Thank you so much Hypercube. Im redoing a lot in this little clip.. Err it has to be finished by tommorow 6pm ( at least a showable demo) and everyone is on vocation till the next project, so I am alone in here .... Ahhhh.....

What I came up with is fading the film strip away for those boring moments.. plus Im gonna add some more 2d motion graphics on top.

Do you think that film strip mixed with those logos makes the image busy?
