Opening animation for a bunch of film clips for basementempires.com (a site which teaches people how to build a business out of their passion online)
Philosophy of the clip you'll create: The idea behind the clip is a visual representation of someone reaching the world, and "shining a light over it" from their basement (the basement of their house). The idea is the light represents their business, as they can reach the entire world from their small home.
The Clip, in Detail: Animated 12 second opening: Starts bright light (white light filling screen), camera pulls back to expose window sill with light pouring out of it, pullsback slowly farther to expose basement (bottom room of house) with the window sill and light spilling forth, with abright light spilling out of it, camera pulls out farther to see the entire house(with bright light still shining from the basement) sitting alone on top of a high hill or cliff,camera pans across hill, to massive town (light shining over it from the basemnt windown) and long visible distance withlight from the window spilling out across the night sky, covering the town into thecurvature of the earth, and as we pull back from the curvature earth we see thebright light, still coming from the Basement, shining from the entireglobe, and turning into the logo, Basement Empires: Your Passion, YourBusiness
Music - Inspirtational, typical movie opening, perhaps a little newsy. Not necessarily music, but sounds that are correct for the scene...
