All the references you gave are Animated. Is that what you want us to quote, an interactive VR animated experience? OR is your creative team thinking of doing some Live Action? or Both?
The answer is: BOTH. It all depends on the concept that end up being the chosen one. For example: Concept #1 is all animated, while Concepts #2 and #3 are animated and Live Action (as we would need to film with the Sofía and Oleg characters for their respective concepts).
How long are these videos (scenes) ideally?
Between 10-15 mins as per the creative team, however, can you do a budget with a 5 min clip. I think most of them are in that range. I will confirm with Michael.
Do we create the VO's? or will they be given to us?
What would be the ideal scenario for you? Do you prefer us to record the VOs or do you prefer to record them yourself, while we help direct them?
Do we create all the assets in the experience? or will they be given to us? or both? (If both, what assets will we get?)
You would create all of the assets in the experience.
If Live Action, are we given the locations? or will we need to budget for the locations?
This depends on our Series / Studio Production Department and whether they can accommodate. Please budget for both scenarios.
If Live Action, where do we want to shoot this? NY/MIA/Other?
This depends on our Series / Studio Production Department and where / if they can accommodate. It also depends on the talent’s availability.
If Live Action, are we entering an existing set? or will we need to build a set from scratch?
This depends on our Series / Studio Production Department and whether they can accommodate. We foresee needing a greenscreen soundstage for the Live Action aspects, but not much else. It’s worth noting that we aren’t VR experts. Therefore, we count on / appreciate your recommendations.
Will we have access to the talent? if so, will they come out of this budget?
This depends on our Series / Studio Production Department and whether they can accommodate the talent for us. The ideal answer is that you will have access to talent. If not, then Concept #1 will be the chosen concept, as it requires no talent.
If Animation, will we need to build all assets from scratch? or will the assets be provided to us?
Yes, you would need to build assets from scratch.
For 2D videos (Teresa / Oleg), will they be provided to us? or will we need to add these to the budget?
You would need to add these to the budget. Clarification: the only 2D videos we foresee are those of Sofía and Oleg, not Teresa.
Is this a promo video? a complimentary piece to the show or scene? or a standalone piece?
These are stand-alone videos used to promote the series premiere but we will produce 2-3 pieces.
What's the timeline? When do you need these by? ideally?
The series is estimated to premiere in May 2019, but I believe t willl have to be produced in 2018. I will confirm with Michael.
