Looking for an animation to represent communication and travel across planet Earth. Please take a look at the attached 'Global Network' video for an example of the kind of thing I'm looking for. Don't copy it, but draw inspiration from it.
Rather than blue, I would like the lines to be an orangey/yellow colour (with a slight glow) and they should be solid rather than dashed. They should also be about 50% thinner so they're not so thick. The camera should start relatively close like in the example and gradually pull out so the Earth fills about 80% of the vertical frame.
I think the speed of rotation and the speed of the lines forming is too fast in the example video... maybe slow it down by about 50% or so. No need to show a full rotation of the globe, but most of it would be good. Maybe start with Australia and end when we get to North America or something. No need to cover the Pacific.
The sun should be a very slight hint of orange/yellow as well. Not really saturated, but just not blue like in the example. The number of locations/lines in the example is about right. Smooth camera moves, a nice starfield in the background, no Moon or anything. No need for the lines to reflect on the ocean. Looking for the Earth to be quite realistic, but with muted colours like in the example. No bright green parts or anything.
Final deliverable: 1920x1080 progressive, 29.97fps, Quicktime Photo JPG, 75% quality. 20 seconds would be ideal. Minimum of 15 seconds though and a maximum of 30 seconds.
Bonus points if you can deliver as a 2880x1620 file, but quality is more important than resolution. Let me know in the comments if your entry will be provided at 1080p or 1620p.
As I'll be using these in my stock renders, I need to have full ownership of the final video, so it needs to be entirely your own work. May have need for additional space related videos, animations and 3D modelling in the future if you're interested, but we'll start with this contest and see how it goes.
I think that covers everything! Give me a shout if you have any questions.
PS. I've uploaded some of my assets to Dropbox that might help in the creation of the animation. You've got an 8K starfield, a 4K nebula with transparency (don't use it at 100% opacity, something more subtle like 25% to 50% or something, and some Earth textures. Feel free to use all of them, some of them or none of them.

I'm also including a video I made that includes the Earth and uses the starfield/nebula/textures. I'm not too bad when it comes to animation, but it's them pesky lines that I have no idea how to create! Your animation ideally needs to be of a similar or better standard than that. More of a stylised Earth though, like in the 'Global Network' file.
“Very high quality work. Luke obviously knows what he is doing when it comes to animation, 3D compositing and video production. I\'d have no hesitation in recommending him. ”
