<<<Maya animation, Earth globe showing Ferdinand Magellan's route>>>

NOTE: This is a last-minute project; a creative decision. I am completing a video within the next 24 hrs and I have decided to insert the 3D animation sequence described below. So, please only bid if you are truly ready to start within 2 hrs (I'll make decsion within that time) that you will DEFINITELY complete this the very same day; I mean just a few hrs later (maybe 8 hrs?) to hand off for video integration now. **This is not a multi-day project**

I will make a decision super fast. If you can whip up any demo, it will greatly increase the chance of being selected. Respond first. Then post a followup message to me if you get something together.

**hey, form letter marketers -- don't bother. I mean don't waste your time (or mine) with a crap response. I am only hiring a skilled animator/modeler who responds with a meaningful message that indicates REAL understanding of this project. I hope that's clear! **

Here's the project definition:

Please take a look at this draft page on Kickstarter:

Please carefully look at the map graphic from wikipedia:

I will provide you with a Maya file for my modern boat (the one seen on the kickstarter link above).

What I want you to do is create a globe that is **stylistically identical** to the map from Wikipedia. i.e. white land regions, light blue oceans, with black lines for the route.

I want you to produce a 20 second animation in which my boat (a symbolic version) moves along the voyage path shown in the wikipedia map (it begins in Spain and goes westward). The camera view from outer space should track the boat. Creative motion of globe and camera would be desirable.

I want you to render it with green as the space background color so that we can composite this.

If you can morph initially from a photo realistic spinning Earth globe, transitioning the globe to the wikipedia style (with continetal boundaries aligned of course) I will pay you a nice bonus! I think that would be a cool effect.

I can actually do this as demanded, since my special effects/animation/graphics work includes scientific and graphic work for science and planetariums. I already know Magellan's route. I will have to do it in 3DS MAX 7 More
