Contest Brief

A 5-second 2D/3D animation of a child, wearing a gas mask, blissfully running and/or playing in a poppy field under a dark, moody sky. This animation will be used as an outro for historical educational videos.

See photo as a reference. I was thinking of a wide shot of a poppy field with the child running through it running his hands through the poppies. You can add audio of the child laughing if you wish.

**Ideal Skills and Experience:**
- Proficiency in 2D or 3D animation software (e.g., Maya, Blender, Cinema 4D)
- Strong portfolio showcasing expertise in creating emotionally compelling short animations
- Ability to work with dark, moody color palettes while maintaining clarity and focus on the subject
- Experience in storytelling through animation, capable of conveying profound messages in brief formats

**Project Requirements:**
- Develop a visually striking 2D/3D animation, 5 seconds in length
- Illustration of a child in a gas mask playing or running in a poppy field
- Execution should lean heavily on a dark and moody color scheme
- The animation must convey the theme of the innocence of childhood effectively, despite the somber setting

**Execution Notes:**
- Authenticity and emotional resonance are key; the animation should be both aesthetically pleasing and thought-provoking
- While adhering to the dark and moody palette, ensure the child and the environment are distinct and visually captivating
- Pay close attention to the movement and expressions (as visible through the child's posture and actions) to depict joy and innocence convincingly

**Conclusion:**
This project is not just an animation; it's a statement. A successful bid will demonstrate not just technical ability, but also an understanding of how to wield this medium as a means of storytelling. With your skills and creativity, we can bring this juxtaposition of innocence and historical concern to life. This outro will be used for historical videos, with topics ranging from WW2 and the Cold War to the Gulf War.
