For the past few weeks, a very talented Android Police fan Mike Smith has been working on something special for us - our very own video intro that we can use as a pre-roll in the YouTube channel going forward. Today, I'm proud to show all of you the final product.

Here goes - the world premiere of the official Android Police video intro (toggle it to 720p to experience the best quality):

So, what do you think? Let Mike and us know in the comments.

P.S. You may remember Mike from this gem he created to show his loyalty to Android:

    Wow, good job Mike. Looks great and story line works really well

  • wirbly

    Love it (seriously), but make it faster. Pre-rolls need to wrap up QUICK or videos get annoying.

  • Vince

    Great Job! I disagree with wirbly btw!

    I would very much like an android police boot animation!!!

      Seconded! I've considered but never actually replaced my boot animation. But this is outstanding~ Will the usual 480x800 look pixelated on the Galaxy Tab though?

  • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

    If anybody has a way to convert this into a vertical boot animation, please let me know.

      For what size screen Artem? I know someone who can probably make it happen.

      • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

        Probably the most common one (480x800?), in portrait and landscape modes.

          Is it to loop endlessly or a picture to display at the end?

        • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

          I'm not sure what would be best actually. Probably loop.

          Sent you an email, check it when you get a chance.

  • Sam

    That was awesome!!! I love how the robber had the "android market" bag in his hand lol. Very professional!

  • Laura Lee

    those are the 2 best branding videos i've ever seen!

  • fluxgfx

    I still think that someone with more experience should come up with a boot animation for this video. It would be awesome!

    I still think that the materials could have been better... I mean at least try to have better lighting, give the material a bit of a glossy touch and lower the saturation? the shade of green feels very outdated.

    • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

      Care to try and come up with something better? :P

  • mark l

    It looks awesome. Great job.

  • mastermind26

    Any progress on making this a bootup screen?

    This video intro was outstanding!

  • Bas

    Both videos look really good.
