Hi, everyone. I'm hoping to be able to produce a VR music video for a song on my upcoming album. The nature of the song is somewhat abstract (it's called "Magic Beans" and is about life, the universe, and everything), and would involve imagery such as plants growing all around you, the Earth spinning, DNA strands twirling, flying through space, etc. I have some notes and will storyboard it all out for you. But also, ideally I'd love to work with someone who understands the song and can add their own creativity and artistry to the video, and also knows VR and what kinds of things will work well within that medium.
The best reference points I could give for existing VR projects that have similar things happening to what I'm thinking of would be something vaguely in the style of "Dear Angelica," and with some of the trippy nature and visuals of "Tripp." (if you're not familiar with those titles, there are trailers for each online.) But also more sparse than either of those titles, and this wouldn't be nearly as ambitious (it's only a 2:30 minute song).
This doesn't need to be interactive in any way. Just a 360 animated music video, essentially. If some VR hand controller interactivity is possible, then great, maybe we can also add that. But I'd be happy for this just to be an experience to be experienced. But really, without getting this video onto an existing VR platform like Steam or Oculus, it's home will be as a 360 YouTube video, where there isn't any interactivity. So yeah, probably not any VR interactivity needed.
Timeframe is pretty casual... This particular project I wouldn't need completed until early summer of 2021 (though earlier is always better).
If you respond to this, please show me work that you've done in the VR field, or with 360 animation/illustration. I've produced a lot of 2D animated music videos, but this is a very new venture for me, so I really need someone with experience working with this kind of thing.
Any questions, please ask. Thank you!
