We are looking for a simple music video to upload to Youtube for our song “Reflect and Fade”: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1m8OtwhgRelN-3zgU8szWI8tHEVAdssQL/view?usp=sharing. We didn’t record any footage of the musicians, so we’d like to go with an animation based on stock photos / deviantart images etc. Here are some examples (for the TECHNIQUE but not VIBE we're looking for):
Please notice these are not static - there is a moving element, it is very important! These are however short loops that repeat every 5-10 secs.
It would be ideal if you could overlay the lyrics in some nice animated manner, e.g. like this:
These are probably an overkill for this budget, but the closer you get to this quality/richness the better:
We’ll judge the submissions by (in decreasing importance):
* How well they match the vibe of the song/genre
* How professional they are
* How rich/diverse they are (e.g. how many unique shots, whether they have lyrics, how animated the lyrics are)
This order means we’d rather have a great vibe, quite professional video with one screen and no lyrics than a fancy animated lyrics video that doesn’t fit the song/genre. We respond to submissions daily, so feel free to start even with a very simple visuals to get our feedback on the vibe, before you invest all the effort in embedding lyrics, adding variety etc. Please avoid clichés (e.g. rock song = flames / skulls etc.) or interpreting the lyrics too verbatim.
The video’s title will be: Marcin Sieniek and Michael V Rybak - Reflect and Fade, so please feature this somewhere in the video. This will be the miniature used for the song, would be great to embed it somewhere in the beginning/near the end: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1bnjh77JjaBCXWltInjcHA2X3WFopFnmu/view
Please upload your videos to Drive/Dropbox and provide links to them in your contest entry - embedding videos in Freelancer submissions doesn't work well. You don't need to buy the necessary stock footage until we select your submission. In your submission please link to the stock materials you're using. If we select your video as the winner, you’ll be expected to replace the stock materials you used with high resolution counterparts and provide proof of legally buying them.
Some inspirations / potential stock art to include (but feel free to include whatever you can find and make sure to animate them to achieve a “moving” effect - even if just by modifying lights/zoom/hue):
More vibe for this genre of music (not necessarily this song):
Some effects we like in our videos include occasionally shaking the image, brief color inversions, overlays of the equalizer visualizations (see example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oMCvudzJblg).
I'm providing the lyrics in the clarification board.
We’re constantly looking for more vendors to work with on our future songs (as contests but also committed projects). For most of our contests in the past, we picked multiple winners, so we’re hoping to see multiple great submissions again!
