Animate 6 seconds of reference video using my rigged character models in Blender

18 days left
Open job

I am an author of instructional books that teach partner dance. I have four of these books for sale on Amazon, Google, Kobe, and Apple. I use Blender to illustrate these books. I am also an author of instructional video, using a ebook format that contains embedded video. I have three of these “videobooks” for sale on Apple Books and Amazon.

The task is to animate two partner dance patterns based on reference video. Each dance pattern is 3 seconds long. The animation must use my BLEND file and comply with my formatting requirements.

I will provide a BLEND file containing the rigged character models that are to be used for the project. The BLEND file contains one rigged model for the Leader character and a separate rigged model for the Follower character.

I will provide reference videos. These videos depict two dancers performing a partner dance pattern. There are two primary reference videos; each of these is 3 seconds long. There are secondary reference videos that show the dance pattern from a different viewing angle. I also provide still images that indicate where on the timeline key poses should occur. Each 3 second animation consists of two actions, one for Leader, and one for Follower, such that the actions are combined to play simultaneously to show Leader and Follower dancing together.

Please provide examples of your work. Please provide an estimate of the cost for creating the animations, each one 3 seconds long, for a total of 6 seconds of animation.

I will be hiring multiple animators for this project for this stage of the project with the intention of performing follow-on work, utilizing the animator that does the best work on this stage for the follow-on work.
