Kilpailun tehtävänanto

We are looking for a simple music video to upload to Youtube for our song “Reflect and Fade”: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1m8OtwhgRelN-3zgU8szWI8tHEVAdssQL/view?usp=sharing. We didn’t record any footage of the musicians, so we’d like to go with an animation based on stock photos / deviantart images etc. Here are some examples (for the TECHNIQUE but not VIBE we're looking for):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMDCfa4jzWY
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GfzXeVKuRhg
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8dtxHsucCx4

Please notice these are not static - there is a moving element, it is very important! These are however short loops that repeat every 5-10 secs.

It would be ideal if you could overlay the lyrics in some nice animated manner, e.g. like this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVI6c0TlM2g

These are probably an overkill for this budget, but the closer you get to this quality/richness the better:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YiVkAvm-BVE
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFJooJbSntQ
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCmBWOF1A0g

We’ll judge the submissions by (in decreasing importance):
* How well they match the vibe of the song/genre
* How professional they are
* How rich/diverse they are (e.g. how many unique shots, whether they have lyrics, how animated the lyrics are)
This order means we’d rather have a great vibe, quite professional video with one screen and no lyrics than a fancy animated lyrics video that doesn’t fit the song/genre. We respond to submissions daily, so feel free to start even with a very simple visuals to get our feedback on the vibe, before you invest all the effort in embedding lyrics, adding variety etc. Please avoid clichés (e.g. rock song = flames / skulls etc.) or interpreting the lyrics too verbatim.

The video’s title will be: Marcin Sieniek and Michael V Rybak - Reflect and Fade, so please feature this somewhere in the video. This will be the miniature used for the song, would be great to embed it somewhere in the beginning/near the end: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1bnjh77JjaBCXWltInjcHA2X3WFopFnmu/view

Please upload your videos to Drive/Dropbox and provide links to them in your contest entry - embedding videos in Freelancer submissions doesn't work well. You don't need to buy the necessary stock footage until we select your submission. In your submission please link to the stock materials you're using. If we select your video as the winner, you’ll be expected to replace the stock materials you used with high resolution counterparts and provide proof of legally buying them.

Some inspirations / potential stock art to include (but feel free to include whatever you can find and make sure to animate them to achieve a “moving” effect - even if just by modifying lights/zoom/hue):

https://www.deviantart.com/redheadstock/art/Aurora-Borealis-Photoshop-and-GIMP-Brushes-68718527

More vibe for this genre of music (not necessarily this song):

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1h_lJqpDQmX6UQHiwPdy0DHNKvjha9XAT/view?usp=sharing

Some effects we like in our videos include occasionally shaking the image, brief color inversions, overlays of the equalizer visualizations (see example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oMCvudzJblg).

I'm providing the lyrics in the clarification board.

We’re constantly looking for more vendors to work with on our future songs (as contests but also committed projects). For most of our contests in the past, we picked multiple winners, so we’re hoping to see multiple great submissions again!

    One cannot ignore or look down upon the work of Andy Warhol (and numerous other pop artists) just for the reason that he was using stock imagery and gave it his own artistic interpretation to build his narrative.
    The stock visuals being used are unrecognizable from the originals. They have taken the shape of how we perceive our narrative; the way we wish to share our story.
    Atlas Falls (Shinedown) with 3 million views is also a stock footage based video... and so is "Still Echoes" and all the others you shared... what we need to do is to fix the story-line and like in the case of “Still Echoes”; generate our very own version.
    Originality and/or creativity doesn't only come with actually shot footage... it comes with how creatively one uses stock to convey one's story.

      any color is on the table. personally this song doesn't speak red or black to me. blue is definitely an option that many others explored, but I imagine other colors could work too.

      In my experience, Freelancer video processing doesn't work very well. Better to upload to Dropbox/Drive and post a link in your submission. Just use one of the frames as the required image.

    These are the song lyrics:

    I hate it bad
    When things that you said
    Get stuck inside my head
    Say it again
    Will you say it again?

    There’s no excuse
    for making no use
    of hours of meditations
    Constellations of scars
    should have dissolved by now!

    I’m giving you nothin’
    and yet you’re back
    for another round
    You’re only an echo in my head
    It’s time you
    reflect and fade

    You’re a stain that I cannot stand,
    your words are condescending
    Wash it away
    I will wash you away
    I carry you around like a torch
    enlighten my torture
    The distortion of light
    must have impaled my
    Sight

    I’m haunted by
    The distortion of light

    I’m haunted by
    The distortion of light

    I’m giving you nothin’
    And yet you’re back
    for another fight
    You’re only an echo in my head
    It’s time you
    reflect and fade
    reflect and fade
    reflect and fade
    reflect and fade
