Contest Brief

The mini series are meant to showcase the different mindsets of someone who has a mindset of a "Dieter" and then someone who has a mindset of a "Food Accountant"

We are in the weight loss industry and just want an attention grabbing, funny weekly video showing people who have the mindset of one who's always on a diet that they need to become a Food Accountant in order to reach their goals and finally stop stressing out about food. The idea behind our ongoing mini series is to get people to laugh and to cause engagement on our Facebook Fan Page to grow our audience. The goal is to be funny and create engagement, so bringing the video to life with sound/graphics/text/etc.. will be a much needed thing!

In the google drive folder below is a video titled "episode1 walkthrough". I'm walking you through what we'd like to have done. BUT WE ARE ONLY WANTING to work with creative people who take ownership and not just asking for directions on every single little piece of the project.

In the folder you'll find the .mp4 file of the episode ALREADY put together that you'll be using. While in whatever editing software you're using, you may need to "slice" in certain spots to add transitions between scenes to make it flow better. The person who will win this bid and get a tip if they exceed our expectations, doesn't need to hear this because they understand how to be creative and make a high quality project.

We will want our logo used and a short intro and outro created with it.

Here's some guidance on bring them to life with your animation skills for how we see:

changing the theme music to fit the mood of the actor in their current state!

Between the scene where she eats, the clock showing 10pm and her pacing the kitchen have some type of text/still image, etc. saying "Hours later...." fading. WE WANT SOMEONE WHO IS CREATIVE AND *********IS NOT********** ASKING FOR US TO MAKE EVERY LITTLE DECISION.

Between the scene of him eating the ice cream fading into the sleeping scene some type of caption with text saying "moments later" and then have a snoring type sound effect, something that brings it to life and is funny.

OVERALL FEEL & QUALITY OF EFFCTS EXAMPLE VIDEO: [login to view URL]


Again, really bringing it to life with fitting music, effects, texts that go with the words, ect. And then if needed to mute any clips, go for it, really making it a fun/funny mini series to watch!!!

Here's what we've been wanting in terms of the text within the show and how it pops off the screen and uses colors, boxed/outlines :

When we say funny- We're not talking out dated old fashioned funny, but modern up to date/with the times funny. Watch any tv show on Disney or Nickelodeon and they are brought to life with simple effects, sounds, music and boxed style text.... That's what we're looking for!

    Nice and funny project...the only one thing is the tight deadline. Anyway, I think I'm gonna try to make some decent work in this short time. Just to take it as a challenge. If I see I got something before the deadline, I'll send you an entry. Best.

      Unfortunately I did not meet the deadline. I started the project, but I could not work on it the followers days. It is a pity because I wanted to collaborate in your miniseries making something nice. I hope you could to find what you were after. Best regards.

    WHAT IS THIS...WHY YOU CLOSED THIS EARLY? ICAN'T POST MY WORK.

      You could have posted and asked for feedback opening up a line of communication until waiting for the very last minute to post something that wouldn't have been ready to air. We were looking for someone who is willing to and has clear communication because this is an on-going project. After you would have submitted your work at the last minute ((((or like most, asked for it to be extended another time, which was never going to happen))) we would have still needed to make corrections. I apologize you didn't win, but the early bird gets the worm, so to speak.

      This was ultimately an interviewing process for continued work with a freelancer- those that wanted to wait until last minute and submit something that would still need revised just didn't understand that communication is the biggest part of an on-going working relationship

      Because you didn't even follow the simple VERY SPECIFIC directions we gave. You wanted to submit at the last minute something that wasn't to specs when we had a great freelancer asking questions the entire time, getting it to be what we want far past the specs given.

      Hi Ahmed! The only way we're extending is if we're torn between the top submissions and seeing how they take feedback and change the requested changes we'll be asking for.

      Part if this is also an "interviewing process" to see who will be a good fit to work with for the next 10 or so videos!

    Great submissions Maxim & Dan!!! We look forward to seeing the few changes needed to post it and how much you can wow us with the "we'd really like to see" changes too!

    We'll be keeping this open to the end for all to submit! The only way we're extending is if we're narrowing it down to a single submission between the top submissions!

    Thank you all very much!

    Here's my take on this project with some graphic design course work back in my undergrad years. If someone spent a solid 2-3 hours using the insight we've given, they're walking away with a gig that averaged around $100/hr for delivering close to what we're looking for!

    Then as we work together moving forward each week, it's getting better and better and quicker and quicker on the editing side!

    I'm not sure if you can see others submissions, but there's too many that have put a poor amount of effort into it hoping to land an easy $250.

    Take it serious and you'll end up making somewhere between $1,000-2,000 from us by the time the entire mini series is all over with. Give us your BEST work please or nothing at all.

    We appreciate your efforts very much!!!

      i have other deadlines to fulfill, plus is not a job of a couple of hours, just looking for the right sounds would take many many hours, plus conceptualizing how the texts and everything else would look, it may be easier down the line for whoever wins the contest, but this first video would need a little extra love. Anyways, like i said, i won't be able to do it at this deadline, but i'm sure you'll find what you are looking for, a lot of amazing professionals around here ;)
