Shoot Footage of an Eye

Contest Brief

Shoot a short video of a human eye in 4K resolution. I'll consider HD shots, but please let me know whether your entry will be 4K or HD.

For the framing, please take a look at the two attached images. I've named them wide and close. The framing should be no wider than the wide image, and no closer than the close image... somewhere between the two is fine. So wide enought that the entire eye is in the shot with a bit of padding around the sides, but not wide enough so you can start seeing the ears or whatever is behind the person etc. Head should be facing forward, eye should be centred, and the eye should be looking into the lens.

Total duration should be 15 seconds. The eye should start closed, and open after one or two seconds. The eye should then blink a couple of times during the remainder of the shot, and the eye should then close one or two seconds before the end of the shot.

I'll consider anything with regards to age, sex, eye color, ethnicity etc... but I'm probably leaning towards a Caucasian male of around 18 to 30 with blue or brown/hazel eyes. I may buy more than one entry, but we'll see how it goes... if the winner is a male subject, then I'll probably go for a female one if I do end up choosing two.

Shot should be steady and evenly lit. Minimal shadows. Ideally, the only movement within the shot should be the eye opening and closing. Make-up is optional... just looking for something clean, natural, well lit and well shot. If you have the ability to shoot in a flat color profile, then that will give me room to manoeuvre when grading and color correcting. It's not a massive deal if not though.

Final deliverable... 3840x2160, Quicktime PhotoJPEG at high quality, or Prores 4:2:2. Frame rate can be anything between 29.97fps and 60fps. (same specs if you go for HD, but 1920x1080 - remember to let me know if your entry is HD)

I think that covers everything, just give me a shout if you have any questions! Thanks.

      Anything is fine. Well, it needs to be human, but that's about the only limitation!

      Everyone has a chance! I would prefer 4K but happy to consider HD if they're not quite what I'm looking for. Thanks!
