Design intro/outro for YouTube technology explainer channel

Contest Brief

I'm planning on starting a channel called 'miltechnac', which will be exploring concepts related to military technology and tactics. I've already obtained a great design for the brand/title, which is available in various formats in the attachments. What I need now is to work this design into a few seconds of video, with accompanying sound, that I can use in the videos to create a strong brand. I plan on giving feedback, and hope that this process can introduce me to potential freelancers who could be good to work with for editing the main content in the near future.

As with many explainer videos, I'll probably start directly with a minute or two of leading content, which give viewers a quick feel for the video, and gets them hooked into the topic with some exciting questions or observations posed. Then after this content exposition, will want the intro for 'miltechntac'.

The intro need not be too long, probably only a few seconds. More than 5 or 6 seconds is probably stretching it a bit too much, and as little as 2 or 3 is still fine. I'd like the videos to keep a strong pace/tempo, so anything too long, that someone could be tempted to skip, is unhelpful. It could be as simple as getting the logo to appear / move onto the screen in some stylish way. I'm also open to simple animations, or creative use of stock/public images and footage of military equipment/manouvres etc to help demonstrate and build excitement and interest in the topic. Weapons firing (like missiles, or artillery), submarines surfacing, infantry/tank manouvres, can all look cool. However, they need to work well together, and would probably need a few of them together, since I plan on covering all different types of forces, and don't wan't to imply that I'm focussed just on one topic. There are plenty of other channels that are mostly just focussing on tanks for example, or infantry weapons, or submarines. I intend to be fairly diverse in the content, and the intro should reflect that, or simply be plain/simple, potentially without any imagery. I'm open to creative interpretation.

For the outro, I'd probably like the brand presented again quite quickly/simply (probably without any leading animation/imagery used in intro) and then a simple but branded plain screen, with looped/or loopable music/sound, suitable for scrolling credits or other text across.

Regarding style, this channel is going to be pretty intellectual/scientific. I'm not actually in the military, I'm a data scientist with a physics background. So aggressive/macho tones probably won't really suit.

Feel free to just string the intro-outro together, perhaps with a moments gap, to present both in a single file, we can separate just in the handover.

Regarding attachments, the main design (preferred) is the one with a black background, and grey writing. There are also versions here with the writing in black and no background (with 'Final' in the file name), which might be suitable when overlaid on a light background where required.

      Thanks for pointing this out. The winner also isn't signing the handover documents or uploading files, that might explain it. Perhaps there'll be a chance to re-award this.

    Hi all, thanks for the excellent submissions!
    I have one comment that I find myself repeating a lot: Sometimes it seems that the sound is cut short at the end. I know this might seem like it's a small detail, which could perhaps be fixed at handover, but it sounds really tacky and unprofessional, particularly if there's a fantastic, immersive sound that ends on a long lingering note that just suddenly drops away to nothing. It shows poor attention to detail, and discourages me from awarding an entrant, which is a shame, as some of these I otherwise like.
    I know I said the intro shouldn't bee too long, but if it just needs an extra few seconds for a sound effect to finish properly, that's fine. In final production, it could be faded a touch faster, or even overlap with the next section slightly to keep the pace moving.
    Please double-check your entries for this fault, and either re-submit, or comment to confirm that you do have the full sound clip and will correct it in handover
