Our temporary base site is here:
We are looking for a talented animator to bring our scene to life.
On the homescreen in the link above in the middle segment you will see a blank page - we need an animation which is going to give our website huge impact and will be part of a scrolling banner that presents multiple scenarios to our future customers.
It opens with
"A Tapp'd Presentation .... "
"We can all relate to this scene"
The animation then fades into some kind of animated bar scene with a lot of people queuing for a drink and the bartender clearly run off his feet - sweating
A lady goes up to the bar (in speech bubbles) and asks for Cocktails - 2x Pornstar Martini, 3x Mojito, 2x Sex On the Beach, and 2x Espresso Martini (total 9 drinks) - Total Cost £90 but it has taken te bar tender 13 mins on the stopwatch to process one order.
I want the animation to get a stopwatch in the top right corner as the bartender starts to make the drinks - that includes crushing limes, pouring from lots of different bottles etc that speeds up & timelapses through the manual process of a bartender creating the 9 drinks and the more the stopwatch goes up the more people give up waiting for a drink in the queue - as they walk away in that part of the animation I want to see "lets get a beer or cider, its faster" as a speech bubble with "£-10" floating upward in red from the people in the crowd who walk away from the bar
Imagine the video goes into fastforward and the timer shows each drink taking 1minute 30seconds each as they are made one at a time its a very slow process - then a big red X to come onscreen with a fade out that says: "Surely there must be a better way?"
- it then rewinds to the start (literally see it rewind) - same order from the lady same scene - and the timer restarts - she makes the same order but this time the bartender lines up a bunch of shakers on the bar one after the other - adds ice to each - pops the cap on 9 of our bottles with a bottle opener and begins to pour them into the shakers 2 pornstar's into the first shaker - 3 mojito's into the second shaker, 2 espresso martini's into the third shaker etc. he then shakes and serves into glasses very quickly and takes the payment from the lady - he can serve all 9 drinks within 2minutes. the customers behind him don't leave in this scene because they are going to get served faster -
We want you to use your imagination for the animation - but the focus must be on the fact that our drinks taste as good as the real thing but can be served in a fraction of the time as a traditional handspun cocktail - then add the idea that the bar is literally throwing away their time & money doing it the other way when there are alot of people queuing
At the end - we want it to go all white with the text to fade in and out
"12 Month Shelf-Life"
"Tapp'd" (our logo) - then fade out and the animation ends
The winner of this contest will end up winning a longer term piece of work with us to make multiple animations for us to go in a scrolling banner - we want to present 3-4 different scenarios to the potential customer through the medium of animation
We need someone with really good animation and design skills with a bit of an imagination to bring our vision to life
