Disasterpiece: Animated Music Video

18 days left
Popular job

I am a multi-discipline creator seeking an animator to bring to life a narrative for a music video. The music and story are mine. The animation is yours.

This is a passion project, an ode to someone close to me struggling with navigating depression. The story follows her waking (?) from a nightmare in a bare bedroom, and levitating out the window through a haunting landscape—soaring through and conquering each increasingly difficult obstacle until she appears at the end, again, waking up in bed, wondering what is nightmare and what is reality.

No sound is needed—only animation. I have the music. It is 3:24 and resembles early tracks from “The Xx”. If I need sound effects I can easily add them in Premiere.

I am flexible on the method of animation, but happy with simple 2D cell animation. Or whatever method is most sensible. As an independent artist myself, I don’t have a big studio budget behind me but I do respect the time an artist puts into their work so am seeking an honest balance of cost and quality. Something we can both be proud of.

As for style, I’m looking for greyscaled and haunting. Something between the movie “Persepolis” and a Tim Burton creation. This gothic, nightmarish motif is very important so I’m looking for someone who creates in that realm for fun!

I’m also flexible on completion date—meaning I’m open to settling on something that makes sense for both of us, but sticking by our deadlines once we agree on them. Luckily I don’t have a hard and fast deadline up front!

I hope this project speaks to you! If so, give me a shout and we’ll chat details! Thanks for considering!
