Ignore the lyrics. Pay attention to the music & production. Create an abstract, bold, vivid and colorful music video.The lyrics of this song are not important to the video content. You may safely ignore them, but if you want to use the lyrics in some way I am open to your ideas. I do think the best approach would be primarily abstract, trippy, and constantly changing imagery taking the viewer on a journey. This song's arrangement takes many different approaches throughout. I want the music video to reflect that by stylistically changing, drastically, just like the song, from one verse to the next. This is an opportunity for the animator to show off a bunch of different skills in a single music video. This is probably the most important point here, so if your treatment is selected you will be expected to get to know this song intimately. Below is a list of music videos which approach the style I want for this music video. After you've watched these, you should understand what I want visually. Not quite like any specific video here, but like many of them: I'm fine with computer animation, but open to all forms of animation, indeed the song lends itself to try many different animation techniques.

We're a little company with big dreams of crowdfunding (e.g. Kickstarter or Indiegogo) a better computer keyboard: beautiful, comfortable, and hackable. We're based in Oakland, CA. This is a Kickstarter campaign video promoting a premium, beautiful ergonomic keyboard. It’s a tool that helps people who type too much (programmers and writers) do what they do, better: - Heirloom-grade craftsmanship: From the hardwood and aluminum enclosure to the best mechanical keyswitches, this is a keyboard built to last a lifetime. - Designed for humans: Keyboardio puts your hands and wrists in a more natural position so you can keep typing comfortably, longer. - Use it everywhere: With Bluetooth that's tablet friendly to switches quiet enough to use in a meeting, Keyboardio can go where you go. - Absolutely fully programmable: We let you create your own shortcuts and record macros and bind them to keys, helping you compute like a superhero. - Open source: We ship with source code and a screwdriver: while the product works great out of the box, you can tinker to make it even better We want people to back our project, ideally by pre-ordering a keyboard. Please take a look at the FULL brief located in the ASSETS tab! Style It shouldn’t feel like an Apple ad. The product isn’t the star – the star is how the product makes the user work better. No loving close-ups of the product unless it’s in use or it’s to show a particular detail that’s important to the story. Measured pace – not high-energy quick, but no very long shots (especially no long talking-head shots). See separate attachment where we talk about what we like and dislike in a variety of crowdfunding videos. Tone - Sincere but not somber - Warm rather than coldly scientific - Knowledgeable but not full of jargon - More of a trusted friend / maven than a wise old purveyor of wisdom or a super-hip - A little quirky is OK, but stay clear of weird or goofy. - We take the product seriously but aren’t self-important people 

The Brand New Heavies - Sweet Freeek
Time remaining Closed left Judging

Hi. We have a new vocalist and a new album and this is the 1st Single. We have a few ideas listed below, but not sure what's possible re budget. Perhaps you should listen to the track and get some of your own ideas before reading the below. There's quite a lot of info. There are 4 members of the band. Dawn is great looking and should be showcased somewhat. Have a look at these to see her and us .... 1: Super Normals You see the Heavies dressed like on the album sleeve, but doing really normal things: buying fish and chips, getting on a bus, playing arcade games, sitting in an empty old mans Pub (playing darts). All things kind of boring and untrendy, but dressed like we are below. (Or even in other crazy outfits too.) We help old ladies across the road and reject trendy people and their offers, but can't eventually resist as night falls to go into a sleazier scene of Funk n Disco Dives, Boogying and High Fiving all the Creatures of the Night. Sweet ! Storyline to be expanded obviously. This would also be a way to show various London landmarks giving a London identity to the band which could be interesting for viewers internationally. Good for showing a wide demographic too. Especially steampunks : ~ ) 2: Darts Have a look here... If these folks aren't Sweet Freaks ! : ~ ))) Dawn is a keen Darts enthusiast ! We see each member of the band, Dawn and the 3 guys, getting ready. There are posters on Dawns wall of darts stars. they are all on the move somewhere....Dawn gets past the doormen easily, but the guys get turned away. Dawn is inside playing Darts against the craziest looking dudes. Slow motion shots, hand helds, dolly birds, funny faces, but no~one is hitting the Bulls Eye ..... Then .... the big throw from Dawn..... She aims ... She throws..... the dart travels through the air..... BULLSEYE ! And KaboOM the wall somehow opens because of this hit and behind it is the band on a small stage (separate venue shoot wise probably) and loads of people dancing and enjoying (a chance to show another demographic ~ Young Old Black White Male Female + Sexy dancing ) She joins the band..... The Darts players get down... all is well... Until from a cloud of smoke a giant darts player dude appears semi silhouetted, holding the Dart Of Doom ! The End . This is a basic idea that needs developing and made to fit with the lyrics and time out properly. 3: Four Suits I have 4 similar suits ~ One for each of the band. But what lies beneath ? We could do a kind of studio set up, using silhouettes n stuff. Clothing reveals to this kind of look for Dawn. Note the zoom into face for change of costume. And this much skin with Dawns sex appeal could get some votes (Maintaining the integrity Kate has of course). Quite similar to Bombay video....This could be quite cheap to make. But needs to include more demographics and perhaps some dancers/routine for the kids. Perhaps some outdoors footage. (Including silhouetted darts throwing ! ). All these ideas are open to interpretation and liaison entirely. We're very up for collaborating creating together too. Really love Die Antwoords videos too ! A video that is ever changing and not just editing back and forth between 2 scenes, like Pulp Fiction, movies within Movies kind of thing, or different and atmospheres. Showing demographics. Live performance element. (Our show and Live work is the centre of our thing.) Sexy. Fashion. Serious. Funny pacey and youthful feeling.
