Contest Brief

I need a very simple animation created that is optimised for the iPad Mini screen size with 240p quality or better.

Here are the specifics of the animation:

-It should show 3 drops of blood appearing (one at a time) like they're dripping from above onto an absorbent surface. They should appear at the bottom right of the corner edge of the animation window, and then fade as though being absorbed into a sheet of paper before disappearing. Each drop should be accompanied by the sound of a drip of liquid. Each drop should start at about 1cm diameter when played on the ipad mini screen, and then spread/grow to 2cm as it soaks through the paper behind and disappears.

-It must be of a format that can play on an iPhone/iPad/iPad mini with a transparent background so that it can be played at any time and look like blood drops dripping onto whatever happens to be on the iPad Mini screen at the time.

-It should run for no longer than 4 seconds

-Please look at the start of this video ( [url removed, login to view] ) for an idea of the look I’m after.

-The total file size of the animation must be as small as possible but no more than 7 MB. This is important.

-It must be one, self-contained file containing the visuals and audio.

-Part of this project is that you teach me exactly how this video was created to achieve the result. Also, if any special coding is required to play the video to make it appear above whatever is currently on the IOS screen (with transparent background), I need to know what that coding is.

This could lead to other work in future.

The winner will need to explain in detail what output settings/process you used to achieve the result via email and/or skype after the prize is awarded.

Please make sure that you test that the animation plays on iphone before submitting it.

Thank you.

    The contest doesn't allow me to upload .mov files. How would you like for me to send you the animation?

      Hi Eismael. I just tested the animation and unfortunately, it plays in Quicktime, but not in IOS natively. If you try to upload it to your iphone, you will see that it doesn't even allow you to do that. Thanks so much for your effort though, and I would love for you to submit another one for me to test.

    I agree with fcboss, AUD 50 is not enough. I spent several hours making the animation. I can send you a test video for you to try it on your app. Let me know if you're interested. Cheers

    50 AUD is to low... I can do it but not for 50$... I'm sorry but it will give me a lot of work...

      If you can prove you can do this by creating ANY animation that will play in IOS with transparent background, audio, and size less than 12mb in size, I will pay $70 just to know the method you used. You could start by giving me a sample animation and if it tests okay in my IOS app, I will pay you... no need to waste time creating a nice blood drop animation - just make anything simple to prove you can do it.

      Yes I do, but no one seems to be able to create an animation that works on IOS with a transparent background without the file being huge. Do you think you can do it?

      Hi darksyrup. I really like your animation work but I think the tricky part of this project is getting the transparent background working in IOS. Please test to see if you can do that and then contact me again. I appreciate your time.
