Job Description

The video is produced for Microsoft - Kuwait's office. It's not a marketing video, but more of an internal thing. It will be showcased at the MGX yearly Microsoft employees event.

Each country will have 5 minutes of stage time in front of 15,000 employees including CEO Steve Ballmer and top Microsoft VP's to talk about their branch. And Microsoft suggested to the branches to be creative on what they present.

So the guys at Microsoft Kuwait contacted me and suggested we do a 2 min video at the beginning of their stage time, and asked me to come up with an idea, so I proposed they make a motion comic video, titled Microsoft Chronicles, which will showcase the employees as heroes in a way. The video is a 2 minute motion comic style video, think Axe Cop style :

I'll be working on the animation part as well as supervise the project in general.

As for the budget, to be frank I agreed to take part to volunteer on this project and will pay the voiceover myself which is around the specified budget range, but what I can promise to the chosen talent is put his full credit at the end of the video which will be shown at huge screens at the event, and also full credit in any embedded video on youtube/vimeo. To see an example of the MGX event and screen, its huge, and good addition to portfolio.

The style I'd like is a motion comic narration (deep voice is preferred), with different acting roles for the manager and lead (same voice but different tone) and to have a female voice say only this line "we need to call him"

I know this is a tight budget project, even though its for Microsoft Kuwait, but nevertheless it would be a great addition to portfolio, and as I promised will credit voiceover on ending titles of the video
