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.

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
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.
Tavsiye Edilen Beceriler
“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!”
