I already hired someone for this job who promised a storyboard in 2-3 days, then delivered me an incomplete hand-drawn one in 10days. He was poor at communication, would disappear on me for days, and promise things he wouldn't deliver. I can't work with people who aren't professionals, so if you don't follow through on commitments or have the time to complete this work (on time), then don't bid on this job.
I have two videos I need completed and I want them both done by the same person so that my site has a continuity in its feel. This BID is for only 1 of those videos. Do well for me and you will be awarded the job for the second.
This video will be approximately 2 minutes 30 seconds. It will need a US English Male voiceover and quality background music. The script and my written storyboard ideas are attached. I have also attached character sketches and a hand-drawn storyboard submitted by the previous person who failed to deliver on-time and lied to me constantly.
What I expect:
a High Quality, High resolution 2D animated explainer video. The colors need to be vibrant and engaging, the animation needs to be of excellent finished quality, and the characters need to be customized to the script.
This is how the project will go:
1) You Submit Characters for Approval
2) You use those Characters to create a 2D computer-illustrated storyboard to see both your direction, and the type of art you are proposing/recommending for each scene.
3) You begin the animation after the storyboard is complete, and update me every 30 seconds of completed video so we can make any changes prior to completing the next section.
What I don't accept:
1) Bid Changes - I realize 9/10 Freelancers doesn't even have the respect to read the jobs they are bidding on. Shame on you. If you don't take the time to read the job, it's your own fault if you bid too low. I don't accept bid changes.
2) Poor communication - I expect daily communication and progress reports. I understand we all have work hours, so when you leave our discussions it is pertinent to simply tell me you're leaving for the day. Disappearing in the middle of a conversation without telling me you're leaving (on a repeated basis) is the #1 reason I terminate contracts with unprofessional freelancers.
3) Lying - If you tell me you will deliver in 3 days, I expect delivery in 3 days. So only commit to what you're actually capable of doing. I know little things come up that can cause small delays in a project, and I am typically accepting of those things (if I am properly informed), but don't tell me you'll give me a storyboard in 3 and deliver in 10, or you'll be fired like the last guy.
