Yarışma Özeti

Presentiment is a 30 min story made on a micro budget and needs a passionate motion graphics expert with flair.

Actors playing the part of medical volunteers are positioned inside a large glass cylinder where they can view brief moments of their future.

Upload video at [login to view URL] Password Presentiment

Computer code forms on the cylinder in front of our volunteers in a rectangle. (The size of the rectangle is from nipple height to top of head and a little wider than shoulder width.) Code scrolls downwards and our actors swipe it in various directions. The code moves with their swipes.
5 actors do this movement (approx. time spent swiping)
1. 46 secs
2. 26 secs
3. 9 secs
4. 16 secs
5. 15 secs
After the above time, the code moves away from the glass and flies through the air & stops on a small table close by. From there it takes the shape of our character/s in a hologram. Hologram are complete, although some have a few frames missing which will need to be resolved by you.
After approx 20 secs (each is different) the hologram starts breaking up and a new hologram forms.
Each actor does their own swipes and you must match these. Each actor is able to view 2 holograms except our second actress who sees three and our final actress who sees only one.

Holograms were filmed in professional studio with suitable green screen. The 4k footage is available however the conversion to hologram has been done. What I require is the integration with the animation described above

I also need the removal of two markers on the visualiser see pic "Kaitlyn bangs on glass" – same footage as the final actor to go through the visualiser

You will need to send back layer with Alpha channels as Pro Res 4444 with a guide comp in H264
SFX

I image you will need access to fast broadband as there will be some huge files to go between us

I require suitable sound effects for the code as it flies through the air, but not loud as we have a wonderful soundtrack and there is music at that point. SFX of “noise” as the hologram is forming, and likewise when it is breaking down. Some holograms have very little if any dialogue and the belief is that the transmission is struggling so we can’t hear.
Unfortunately this film has a small budget so not heaps of money to do this work, but hopefully we have a winning film here and you will be named in the credits for the work done. My last film Life is for Living won a number of international awards including Best Short Film and Audience Choice Awards at BBFA in Oklahoma, Film of Outstanding Excellence at IFFEHC and International Filmmaker of the Year in Jakarta along with Best Short Film KIFF New Zealand.

Experienced animators only please. I will need to see some good examples of your work in order to be considered.

Show your own creativity. I would like to see some examples of how the computer code will look on the glass visualiser and how it flies through the air. This may require a little hit and miss till we come up with a super strong effect. Incidentally imagine there will be some spill of light from the computer code onto the actors face.
I have added a PDF which will help to explain the sequences.
Completion by 25th August 2016

I have uploaded some video. Let me know if there is something else you need. I have increased the prize to $900. The visualiser when the lights are off (most of what you are dealing with) will be darker than this after grading i.e. the room is quite dark where this test is taking place. Our actor is caught in the visualiser’s light and there is spill. Nowhere is it pitch black. The grade has a yellow orange tinge. I will look after the grade but you may need to be aware of the background as you proceed. I will try to post footage of the grade in the next day or so.
NB the computer code starts forming at around 8 secs in. It starts breaking up around 47 or 48 secs
The table clean slate can be slightly shorter or longer if your artistic work requires this.

İşveren Geribildirimi

“It was a big project that required significant expertise from an animator and came with an incredibly tight deadline. Powerbroker made it even with the many changes that we needed him to make. I am delighted with the work, delighted with his creativity and his ability to turn the work around so quickly. I was also pleased to find that his knowledge of English was great and we had no communication difficulties whatsoever. This guy is great!”

      Yes the problem was the glass surface of the cylinder was the material for the code to show up. It can't be seen in thin air. There has to be a surface. I had to work that out talking with you but its fine. Thank you for the oppertunity.

      What was I doing when I have large files is to convert them into H64 or low bitrate prores. These files I use for edit at the end before the final rendering i only replace them for EXR/RAW. So you can upload low bitrate files.

      I'm not sure what this is. It appears to be part of your portfolio. Am I looking at the wrong thing here? I want to see what you can do with a hologram. It doesn't seem to have any relationship with the video I posted on Vimeo

    This is a big project , so how will you judge artists because if all of them do so much of work , then that would be unfair . Also even if you have judged the artist you want to work with , how will you ensure him/her the Full Project ? Would be glad to know what you think . besides you can even Private message me so that I can showcase you my sample works and we can talk further . Check my Freelancer profile for more info on my Portfolio. Thanks

      I started to post a job and freelancer recommended I do it as a contest. Their suggestion not mine. Definitely someone will win and get the full project.

    Here's a better Idea . Why not you make the price money about a $100 just for doing one or two shots for you & then based on that you could either directly or through freelancer.com give them the whole project for the remaining $900 . You can mention all of these in the description so that the whole process seems legit to whoever wants to give it a try .

    Looks very interesting, but as others mentioned:

    1. We would need a sample of the video.
    2. I imagine the prize is for the whole project, but it would be great
    if you can clarify.
    3. With that budget you will get or crappy VFX artists or low experienced (not necessary bad) VFX artist, but with not so much, if any, portfolio; you will need to be open to work with people which can’t show you their skills (perhaps that’s why the contest?).
    4. Also, three weeks is very little time if you consider point Nº3.
    5. It would be great if you can make this contest sealed.

      I will increase the $'s and the time. The reason it's a contest is when I started posting as a job a freelancer widow popped up suggesting this be posted as a contest. What's the difference? Do I receive bids from all parties as I do when I post a job?

      • 1 yıl önce
    2. eltacha

      Oh, I see. The difference is that in a contest everybody can make an entry, showing their skills, and you need to choose someone between the participants. When you post a job you select someone based in their portfolio. I think for the budget you have a contest is better because it let the freelancers show you their skills and you can get low cost new good VFX artists and they can expand their portfolio.

      I will be happy to enter the contest, thanks for increasing the budget.

      And the difference from a sealed contest is that only you can see the entries, so other freelancers can't copy each other. Is a good way to have more options.

    Hi there,

    I know the budget is a bit tight but the project looks very interesting.

    Can I get the footage to start working on ?
