Project Description

Hi there. I am a children's music artist looking to get a number of music videos made to add to my video catalogue. Specifically for this listing, I'm looking to produce two music videos using creative animation and graphics. I'm open to Flash, 3D, 2D, etc. Whatever is the right fit for the song/video.

"HOW BIG": A song about the relative size of the universe. Think of the "Power of Ten" type of videos that zoom into single cells and also way out into the universe, and that's what this is about. But there's also a human/spiritual connection between the characters of a tiny bug and a little girl who are observing their worlds from their perspectives, which happen to cross paths in the middle of the song. I have a basic outline/storyboard pretty well fleshed out for this, but I'm looking for the right person or team to bring it to life and add their own character and style to it, and I am always open to your ideas. My budget for this video is $2,200.

"WHAT A RIDE": An upbeat folk/rock song about the different ways we travel through life, literally and metaphorically. First verse is "life is like a train," then "life is like an airplane", then the bridge is about driving and sailing, then "life is like a roller-coaster" and "life is like a boat." The animation for this doesn't necessarily need to be involved or detailed, but depicting the motion of each thing (train, plane, etc.) in a fun way and being fluid and creative is what I'm looking for here. I don't have a specific storyboard in mind for this one... Ideally you might have some ideas and be able to add your own creativity to the project. The budget for this video is $1,250.

MP3s for both songs are attached as files to this listing. If you are interested and feel like you would be a good fit for making one or both of these videos, please respond back with some specific video links to work of yours that might be similar to what you could produce. Additional thoughts, ideas or sketches about how you would approach these videos will also be appreciated and may help.

As a frame of reference, if you go to YouTube and search for "Eric Herman" you'll find my channel and can check out some of the different videos that have been produced (esp. "The Elephant Song," "Steve the Superhero," "Ants in Your Pants #99" and "Blackbeard, Bluebeard and Redbeard"). I'm not looking to reproduce any of those styles, but it might give you an idea of the kind of visual style and humor I like to go along with my songs.
