Music Video - Ken Burns Effect

  • Status: Closed

Contest Brief

I have a song that I need to have a video made for. I would like to use the two drawings (in the Dropbox folder I have listed below), with the "camera" panning around and zooming in and out as appropriate to match the lyrics of the song. Instrumental sections can explore the drawings as a whole, can focus on instrument images, or some combination thereof. I would very much like to have the video use the "Ken Burns Effect" described in this video:

Don't really care if you use Photoshop, just want the effect. Unless you just want to watch the tutorial, just watch the first minute of the video and you'll get an idea of what I want.

Read the lyrics, listen to the song, check out the pictures. Be creative! I look forward to seeing what you come up with. The winning contractor will be expected to sign the enclosed Work-For-Hire agreement before payment is made.

    That's very cool; I like how you fade elements in gradually. Without hearing the song at the same time, though, it's hard to tell how I will like the finished product.

    Hi Tim.... I made a sample for you just in case.... I am showing you this that you might need more elements to have a better parallax effect. Just for your info.... it might help as reference for the job you posted. :) Youtube link - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L7unS52-5bA

      That's pretty cool. I have thought that the style of the drawings might make it hard to get that effect. Still, I think it could look cool just sort of panning around even without the parallax.

      timmcfarland, you don't need to worry so much about the video ownership - if anyone creates a video for this budget, a Freelancer.com document will have to be accepted before any exchange is made.

      Good Luck

    Hi thanks for the invite.... You want a job on the whole timeline of the song?.... with just two images in different camera drama. Please advise... or you just want the effect set up on AE with the animated cameras. Please advise.

      The images will be in vector to achieve that... 10 to 20 seconds will be nice on a parallax animation using your two images... but using it on your whole song... might be boring. Thanks for the invite by the way.... I can't join. But in case it does not work what you want on this contest... just give me a private message if you decide to do a fun and hardcore edit... and we can just discuss on where we can agree on. Thanks :) and by the way I like your music you attached. cool
