Rain / water theme
I’m working on a making-of-music-video tv special. I’m doing the editing and graphics package for the show. This is the 3rd one I’ve worked on and usually there are certain elements in the video that I will incorporate into the look of the show. For instance, the first one had a lot of fire in the music video, so that one’s a no brainer. The next one was a period piece with 18th century clothes and props. So I used an old paper effect and some old illustrations of men and women wearing that style of clothing.
Now, this latest video has hardly any defining elements. It was mostly shot inside and the sets were fairly plain. The only consistent “element” in the video is the weather. It rained the whole entire day of shooting, and they even faked rain on windows for the video.
I’ll need to create a short intro, lower 3rds, some cool transitions and the credits for the show and I’m looking for any creative ideas for a rain/water treatment. I’ve seen a couple tutorials on how to make something look like it’s under water (Wave World/Caustics), but I don’t think that’s really what I’m going for. Honestly I don’t know exactly what I’m going for yet, and that’s why I’m turning to the brilliant COW minds to help me out.
Please feel free to share any ideas about how to use rain or water in general as a theme. And if possible, any links for that type of treatment would be much appreciated..
