Show Biz East Productions (http://www.ShowBizEast.com) Producer Nikki Oldaker announced today her company is producing 3D Virtual Reality Gallery animated videos for Authors and Artists. Nikki Oldaker states, “I was searching for something different from what I've seen on the Internet to help Indy Authors and Artists to present their works and these digital stage set animations captivated me from the first minute I viewed them.”
The editing process for the digital animations includes scanned stills of the Artist’s paintings and Author’s book covers along with music and text. The videos from the onset whisk the viewer through the animated movies which are similar to a theatrical film trailer. The 3D virtual animated stage sets the mood and tone for the viewer and they feel as if they are looking a private showing of the Artist or Authors work. The digital stage sets are creatively designed with decorative planters, benches and stairs the viewer mentally climbs to get to the next location in the gallery. Throughout the entire exhibit the action only stops to view a painting and then moves on to the next exhibit.
The goal of the videos is to entice online viewers to visit the Artist or Author website and for the watcher to be entertained while doing so. Artists and Authors like the concept because their work is being seen up close and personal. They can use these videos to pitch their products on their websites or use them as a marketing tool on their websites. The 3D gallery videos also offer potential buyers a second and third look because they can stop and start the video at will. The graphic art design is geared for entertaining the viewer as they go through each second of the clip. At the end of each video the viewer can write comments if allowed on the website which provides valuable feedback. Frequently internet users share websites they enjoy with their friends and family while on Facebook, Twitter or other social sites and this helps to promote Authors books and Artists paintings.
Oldaker thinks the “Living Room” design works best for Author’s. The graphic animation in this space introduces an intimate feeling of a home environment as the camera moves around each section of the room. Digital photographs of the book covers are cropped and inserted into framed wall pictures, a laptop computer screen that sits on a coffee table, a magazine on an end table and two photo frames neatly placed on different bookshelves.
The videos can take several hours to two days to produce depending on theme which differs artist to artist and author to author to author. So far only instrumental music has been used in these productions. Oldaker tested music with vocals and feels the voices distract the viewer's focus. "It takes more time to audition the music," Oldaker remarks, "than it does to edit the photos into place."
Show Biz East Productions has produced video presentations, commercials and documentary shorts since 1994. Producer and owner of Show Biz East "There are more to these videos than what usually goes into the average book trailer or commercial," states Oldaker, "They are unique, under three minutes and not talking heads... People like them, I enjoy producing them... There are so many talented Indy Artists and Author's out there... I am hoping this idea works for all of us." Sample gallery videos can be viewed at ShowBizEast.com or YouTube.
