Creative Brief:

The audience for this video will range from first and second round angel investors to senior management to professionals looking for jobs. It will also be used to communicate future opportunities to suppliers. The tone should be big business that does not take itself too seriously. It should have funny moments. The visual and narrative style is mostly derived from the hackfwd video ( http://youtu.be/Vp1gUgO4DaU ). Aside from the opening and closing sequences with the company logo where colour should be used, we want to match the black & white style as best as possible.

Timeline:

Assuming timely customer response, this project will be completed by October 10, 2011

Skills required:
Adobe Flash, After Effects, Illustrator
