SPEC AD IDEA
I have an idea for a car commercial where a tiger discovers the car and is later seen driving it. I already have the Tiger model.
The model is for 3D-Max and will require someone who can composite, light and animate it into the plates that I will shoot. I shoot with the RED Helium.
WHAT IS A SPEC AD?
If you don't know what a spec ad is, a spec ad is an ad you create that has not been commissioned by an advertiser. It's purely a FAKE ad created to enhance your portfolio. This is a common thing that directors often do in the commercial film industry as a way to prove to agencies and producers that they have the skills to take on a type of project. Without spec ads it's very hard to advance your career because you need certain types of work on your show reel to prove you can do it. Unfortunately since spec ads aren't real ads they don't have a budget, hence why this listing is for an animator who is also looking to enhance their show reel by collaborating with me.
I'm happy to be flexible as I know unpaid collaborative projects like this have to be worked around peoples paying jobs. Once I have an animator to collaborate with I will arrange the shoot and edit. In pre-production we will set up a timeline for production and delivery. After the edit, I will hand the film over to you and the Tiger model assets to do your part.
I'm a working professional with over 12 years experience. I've shot piles of TV ads in the under $50k category and now I'm looking to take my career to the next level - directing/shooting $100k+ ads. Therefore, building a solid show reel with higher-end looking projects is what I need to do.
I own and operate the RED Helium camera and have good relationships with other professional cast and crew looking to also increase their portfolios. I have worked with animators before, but sadly no-one I know is available for collaboration.
You can see my current portfolio and read more about me once you apply.
