Contest Brief

** Read all of this if you want to win is my hot tip **

So what I am seeking from the Freelancer community is this, the most talented and gifted individuals in Adobe After Effects and video editing. Which leads me to say that I have plenty of weekly ongoing work for the next 4 weeks, highly likely for the next 12 months and longer.

So if you consider yourself a talent with AE and video editing in general, then you might be the person I need, not just now, but as a long term business relationship.

So the competition rules are as follows:
1. Create a video that must be at least 15 seconds, shorter than 30 seconds.
2. All content created must be your own original work, eg: no templates or stealing other people’s work. If you get caught cheating rule 2, you will be eliminated from the competition.
3. Use a colour theme as follows:
a. Blue = #2194D2
b. White = #FFFFFF
c. Light Grey = #ADB1BB
d. Dark Grey = #222222
4. Present the following information:
a. The Australian Security Industry is valued at $6.2 billion to the Australian economy in 2017
b. The security industry actively employs people over 50.
c. The security industry actively employs people with great customer service skills
d. The security industry actively employs people with life experience
e. The security industry actively employs women, indigenous Australians and people seeking a career change.
5. You must provide an audio track to the information being animated/presented. (Nb: Your entries WILL NOT be made publicly available or commercially, this is only a test of your skill sets & therefore your audio may, or may not, need to be fully licensed. I will leave it up to you what audio you include, but it won’t be made publicly available)
6. Your target audience is Australians who are over the age of 25, they may be indigenous Australians, or women, or both. People over the age of 50 are also included and people with great customer service skills are also of interest. This audience is quite varied demographically, however, they all are seeking a life change and that the security industry can change it.
7. The final “call to action” needs to be the hashtag #securitychangedmylife, in that most who join the security industry feel that security has made the most positive impact in their lives and that they are grateful for starting a career in the security industry.

Here is some of my own work & it shows my own capacity to edit templates. My expectation is someone can do better: [url removed, login to view]

What I am really seeking from this competition:
Someone who can show me enough talent, & original work that I can have some confidence in giving you more work. Speaking English is one thing, understanding is even more important.

How to win!
Present the above 7 points using AE to demonstrate your skill sets. Keep the work original, except maybe for some simple components. Honesty and an ability to understand some basic advertising principles are valuable.

In summary, make no mistake, this is a genuine opportunity and this contest is only the start of something potentially pretty cool. I am going to post a new project in a few days for the real work I need done, so the sooner you submit, the great the chance you have of winning, not just the contest but ongoing work.

    Before I award this contest, I wanted to thank everyone for their efforts. It's been a very close race at the top.... so close, I had to ask around 5 close industry professionals that I know very well and even though couldn't split between 1st & 3rd place. So if you didn't win and have 5 stars, it's me saying, I'm happy to work with you. If you got 4 stars, it means I would consider it for sure. So please don't be dismayed if you didn't win...... the top contenders were excellent pieces of work.

    Some last 24 hour hot tips.
    Don't use characters to represent the Australian target audience who look like they come from Mexico.......
    Don't have spelling mistakes....
    Listen to the feedback given, I'm giving big tips here, that means something.....
    Show initiative, that means be prepared to show stuff that may or may not work.....
    Show the full breadth within the 30 secs of your capacity within the brief........
    Lastly and most importantly..... be your creative self.

    I will say that a few entries are really good and are forming a top 3...... however, there are other entries yet to be sent through, so tomorrow night my time, there will be a rush of entries put through I believe!

    • 7 months ago

    We're just over 24 hours to go and some of the work is outstanding..... I will highlight this again, the ability to follow insight given as preliminary work is provided, demonstrates to me firstly that working with projects, you can understand and make appropriate changes. This tells me you know how to make the final product outstanding. So if I have given you some further insight, it is of benefit to work with that...... it is one of 3 key elements I am deciding on.

    I have to say, that I'm encouraged by the talent shown. If you are still in production and haven't submitted anything as yet, or have submitted a "beta version", I would make efforts to read the notes on the critique I have given for those at least 2 stars...... you can see by the comments I'm making what I'm liking and where there are areas for improvement. This WILL help you win but reading them, to understand how to improve. I am nearly ready to put the project up, so make no mistake, there is ongoing business that is about to start and doing this project, you'll have several major elements completed by doing this contest. Keep going, keep working your magic.... great work so far.

    Interesting contest. I'm a talented after effects motion graphics animator. I've just spent like less than 1hr on this. So this is a very basic example of my talents. Wait untill I make the rest. Love to work on this cool contest. Peace out! :D

      I won't PM anyone, all feedback for the contest will be public. That way, everyone can see the direction and I can get a solid look at peoples skills by listen to direction and taking their creative talents along the direction given. But I'm happy to given plenty of direction.....

    OK some feedback for Entry #2.
    The colour theming is spot on, the style is also pretty close to the mark, in that the way the text transitions, whilst a little simple, does work for the Target Audience. I think that the font selection is close, but maybe a little off and there is too much "centre" alignment...... it make it harder to read like that. The most glaring aspect that doesn't work, is the slice you take out of the pie graph, it probably lowers the value of how big the industry is in the viewers mind. So I would suggest present $6.2b AUD in a way that shows lots of money..... I have some ideas, but I'll let you continue what is a good start.

    OK some feedback for Entry #1
    The Target Audience is not exactly technical friendly. Whilst all will have a mobile device, they are probably not "geeks" as per say. So with that in mind, your display of varying graphics and animation are good, but they don't suit the audience. (See Entry #2 as they are close to the mark here). I appreciate that this is just an example, but it doesn't show any colour theming at all, and it is showing security hacking, not necessarily security guards, airport screeners etc, etc...... I encourage you to keep working on it!
