Experience Level: Intermediate
Information for the business: CoSector - University of London (commercial arm)
Design details: I posted a similar job previously, but we have changed from having a fixed budget to divvying it up into 4 separate jobs. Please feel free to make a proposal if you saw the previous one.

Design details:

We are looking for the creation of the first of four animated videos for CoSector - University of London.

We are aiming to explain and illustrate our products for Cyber Security.

I have storyboarded the whole thing on illustrator so the actual content and a lot of the design elements are there. I need someone to animate these ideas and add in animation where needed, such as movement, blinking and text coming up like it does in a video game (think old school Super Mario platform, or Space Invaders...).

These are based on very retro video games, and I can send original files so you can use fonts etc. I would want to work relatively closely with you and I would love to see an animated example frame or two. They need to be done by the end of February and should be 1-2 minutes long. A soundtrack is not necessary, unless you are also a sound composer. I will upload some of the storyboards as they are at the moment, but we would like them to change in the following ways:

More detail for assets (meaning more frames)
Movements animated (especially face, body and explosions)
Different font (and font coming up on screen like it does letter by letter on a video game)

Ideas for the visual style: Retro video-game

We would like you to sharpen some of the storyboards; make them look more professional and more retro - e.g. adding detail to the castle, the backgrounds, the grenades, the coins,,, etc. You have creative freedom to edit storyboards if you have better ideas.

The first video is a pokemon-esque battle between our hero and villain, which is what you'll be designing for this project.

The second a phishing scam with cut call scene and hologram shark; the third an aeroplane mission (the villains have grenades)!; and the final one is firewall related where a Trojan horse blows up the castle wall.

The outcome would need to be editable within Adobe Premiere Pro (for we will be adding a soundtrack).

If we are impressed with your work we will commission you for 3 more videos. However, we want to stress that it is not guaranteed that you will be automatically be chosen to create 3 more.
Ideas for the visual style: Scott Pilgrim Vs The World + original Super Mario/Donkey Kong games
Things to avoid: Explainer video
Extra notes: Extra notes: You will need to add in content for movements, not just literally turn the storyboards into a GIF-like video. I will also share Adobe Illustrator files so you have access to assets provided.

No backing track needed, unless you are also a sound designer and could create a unique video game track that reflects the videos perfectly.

    Hi Katherine
    Just to confirm, by editable in Premiere Pro you mean that the final animated file needs to be a video file that can be imported into Premiere, is this correct? The actual animation source file will need to be done in something like After Effects or Animate (formerly Flash) but can be rendered into a video file that can be edited as footage and have sound and music added in Premiere. Just need to confirm that's what you mean.

    Yes indeed.

    Great, thanks Katherine.

    Is this job still available?

    Hi Katherine,

    In the storyboard, it says that the pixelated characters have been lifted from the Internet and that you would need to create your own. Would you be doing this yourself or do you expect as part of creating the animation for us to design the characters?



    Katherine H.02 Feb 2017

    I have updated the characters since then, so no need to create your own. Please ignore that part of the explanation!

    Hi Katherine,

    Thanks for getting back to me. Are you at all open to increasing your budget? We're afraid we don't believe that there is enough of a budget where we would be confident that we would be able to produce the animation for you at a very high standard.
