I operate directory website that lists online games. Each game has a profile which displays some information about the game. I would like to start adding short videos to these profiles which would show what the game is like to actually play. Each video would be between two and five minutes long.
The videos would show screen and video capture as you log in to the game and play it, along with an oral explanation of what's happening. The exact steps you take in the game would vary depending on the game -- you would put together a short navigation plan with the game owner to ensure that you cover all of the important and cool parts of playing the game. The entire video would be screen and video capture from the game, and your voice explaining what you're doing as you go.
I am looking for someone who is willing to put together such videos from start to finish.
This would involve:
1. Corresponding briefly with the game owner to put together a navigation plan for the game and a script/plan for the video that you both agree on.
2. Taking image and video capture as you execute the navigation plan for the game. All of the games are played within the web browser, so you don't need to download any software.
3. Assembling a video file with the screen captures and video edited together nicely, with your voice (or you can arrange for someone else's voice) in the background saying what you're doing as you play the game.
The idea here is not to say whether a game is good or bad. The video is supposed to be objective and descriptive.
-Communication and writing skills to deal with the game owner and put together a naration for the video.
-Screen and video capture knowledge. You need to be able to capture what you're doing as you play the game. You should be able to have your video zoom in on particular parts of the screen that are important to what you're saying, and edit nice transitions between screenshots and video captures so it all flows nicely.
-A nice voice to do the narration of the video (in English) You can make arrangements for someone else to do the narration if you want. You don't need to be a radio professional to do this, but you need to speak articulately and sound interested in what you're talking about.
-Creativity and production skills to make the video enjoyable to watch, as well as informative.
*** I AM CURRENTLY ASKING FOR BIDS FOR ONE SAMPLE VIDEO ***
I will choose a few of my preferred bidders and have them each put together one sample video for a website that I specify. I will (of course) pay you each your bid for that sample video. I will choose my favorite video (in terms of price and quality) and give that person my ongoing business making these videos (with each costing the same amount as the sample -- don't put more into the sample than what you would be willing to do regularly for the same price).
Please only bid on this project if you are interested in receiving my long term business making these types of videos. Over time I intend to put together a collection of hundreds of videos, and they will also need to be re-made as games are updated.
Ultimately, I want to be able to tell you the URL of the game, put you in contact with the owner, and have a high-resolution version of the video show up on my FTP a couple days later for me to post on the website.
To give a rough idea of what I'm asking for in terms of quality/price, I think about 2-4 hours should be put into each of these videos.
