Animation Video Needed
Color animated video for a new Christmas song. The video would start out with an old fashion looking book on a leather covered or old wood desk. The front of the book would show the title of the Christmas song. The pages would then slowly open and segments of the song’s lyrics would be depicted at the bottom of the pages with corresponding animated and static graphics above. An estimated 10 – 16 book pages would be needed.
The opening page would be in black and white and show a family (parents and two children – boy and girl) inside of their home with expressions of sadness and distress. All of a sudden, they start hearing music and walk over to the frosted window to see a colorful parade of children. The family then opens the front door and sees their neighbors joining the parade. The family then walks outside and slowly joins the parade. The rest of the pages would show an outside setting with animated facial expressions of joy and happiness from children and parents.
Limited animation can be utilized to express shots like close ups and characters in a crowd with along static scenery. There would not be any dialogue in the video; only the song playing the background.
The computer animated video length will be 3 minutes and 30 seconds and would utilize Flash and Motion Graphics in 2D or 3D or other creative approaches. It will appear on YouTube, Vimeo etc.
