Project Description:
NOTE: Please do not post to this listing. This is a project created specifically to award to a particular person. I had posted a project listing two videos, and I ended up hiring someone elsewhere to do one of them. But the other person from here that I'm hiring for one of the videos had based his quote and timeframe on the other video (which was more expensive). So this listing is for the one video that he is being awarded, with the correct fee and such.


Hi there. I am a children's music artist looking to get a number of music videos made to add to my video catalogue. Specifically for this listing, I'm looking to produce a music videos using creative animation and graphics. I'm open to Flash, 3D, 2D, etc. Whatever is the right fit for the song/video.

"WHAT A RIDE": An upbeat folk/rock song about the different ways we travel through life, literally and metaphorically. First verse is "life is like a train," then "life is like an airplane", then the bridge is about driving and sailing, then "life is like a roller-coaster" and "life is like a boat." The animation for this doesn't necessarily need to be involved or detailed, but depicting the motion of each thing (train, plane, etc.) in a fun way and being fluid and creative is what I'm looking for here. I don't have a specific storyboard in mind for this one... Ideally you might have some ideas and be able to add your own creativity to the project. The budget for this video is $1,250.

An MP3 is attached. If you are interested and feel like you would be a good fit for making this videos, please respond back with some specific video links to work of yours that might be similar to what you could produce. Additional thoughts, ideas or sketches about how you would approach these videos will also be appreciated and may help.

As a frame of reference, if you go to YouTube and search for "Eric Herman" you'll find my channel and can check out some of the different videos that have been produced (esp. "The Elephant Song," "Steve the Superhero," "Ants in Your Pants #99" and "Blackbeard, Bluebeard and Redbeard"). I'm not looking to reproduce any of those styles, but it might give you an idea of the kind of visual style and humor I like to go along with my songs.
