I can make a talking pet video from a photo. Would you could call it an animated photo? Maybe. But to be clear, I can take a pet photo like this...
...and turn it into an animated talking pet video like this:
Maybe you want your pet to wish a loved one Happy Birthday, a Happy Holiday, or Happy New Year?
Maybe you want your pet to tell your kids to clean up their room?
Maybe you want to dog-shame your pet, but you want to hear his side of the story?
Maybe you want your dog to explain why he ate your homework?
Maybe a loved one is in the hospital and you want your dog or cat to say,"Get Well Soon"?
Or maybe you have something else in mind. There are a million different things your pet probably wants to say and now you have the opportunity to give a voice to your pet!
A word about the photos and voiceovers: You must own the rights to the photo and the photo must feature the pet or person facing the camera, with mouth closed. The program I use can better morph the picture if the mouth is closed. I do the voiceovers (and alter my voice in Garageband to sound like anyone) or the client can submit his or her own voiceover, providing the client has the proper equipment. But all that can be arranged.
To keep prices low (once I set a price) for customers, these animated talking pet video will be kept under or close to one minute in length and the voiceover will have a max dialog of 10 full sentences. Clients will provide a script for their pet (what they want their pet to say) or they can leave it up to me. The animation will be limited to the face and head. Soon I'll be able to animate body parts, but that will cost more and take longer. As I said earlier, it took me 8 hours to complete Rufie's video and 3 hours edit titles and upload it in YouTube. It was a frustrating night. I'm getting more proficient with the program, so I expect production time should drop. Contact me if you're interested in purchasing a talking pet video. We can work out a price that suits us both.
