I require a high quality animation in gif and AVI format. The animation is to be used within a windows application whilst a search is being processed.
The main criteria is that the animation is an original very high quality image. The artist must be prepared to suggest concept ideas and agree a final concept that will be completed to become the final deliverable.
The animation will consist of an overwieght 3D hard disk drive with the disk part visible. The disk should jog for a while and then stop (panting out of breathe?). As the animation progresses the disk should get leaner and fitter, until it is a fully fit version of its original self.
I would prefer bidders that can supply samples of work they have done in the past.
The winning bidder will be given first refusal of all further work on this project, which includes icon sets, splash screen and help file graphics. I am also considering a 3D animation of my company logo for use in the production of training videos and you will get first refusal of this work too.

I have received a lot of bids and samples, which has meant a delay in getting back to everyone. The quality of everyone's work is great.
I would like to take this opportunity to pass a sample of style to all bidders to ensure that the winning bidder and I will be on the same page.
Your samples provided are very realistic and I want to ensure that when I choose a designer, they can achieve a more cartoonish style, but still in 3D.
After receiving the sample, please confirm that you will be able to design the animation in this genre and also with the facial expressions that will be necessary to communicate tiredness and happiness.
The animation from start to finish should be as follows.
A character (hard disk) has a pot belly and is very unfit. He begins to excerise and jogs as an overwieght person does. He should stop every couple of seconds to puff , pant and catch his breath, maybe wipe his brow with a tissue. As he keeps running he should lose the pot belly and run more efficiently until he is fully fit and has lost the belly.
Hope this helps
