Our company is called Screaming Banshee. We manufacture the best / loudest / safest motorcycle horns and sell worldwide through our website: https://screaming-banshee.com.
This 2D animation is to go on our website. It does not have a voice over but we will supply a background music track to use. This will be the first thing people see; with that in mind we will have 10 – 20 seconds to get our message through to them.
Our product appeals to all motorcyclists – who can relate to being cutoff by a car and have had to avoid an accident. This animation needs to bring that point home fast and then show how the Screaming Banshee SHOCKWAVE Horn provides the solution.
We have a script written out and the animation should be around 20 seconds long (approx):
Motorcycle approaching an intersection and is going straight through. There is a car coming toward him on the other side of the intersection about to do a left turn across his path. The car should yield to the bike - this is a very typical accident in the making.
The view is from behind the rider’s right - so you see his upper half and the motorcycle handle bars, etc. and the car approaching.
The person in the car is looking the other way, listening to music or distracted in some way (you could show musical notes coming from the car perhaps?) and starting to come through the intersection making their left turn in front of the motorcycle.
Motorcycle rider hits the stock motorcycle horn (show left thumb on red horn button if possible) but the sound doesn’t reach the car, show a graphic of the sound waves coming from the motorcycle horn falling short of the car (you can get the sound of the weak stock horn from the video on our website).
The car continues to roll forward…….the motorcycle rider hits the brakes but still is on a collision course with the car. Just as he is about to hit the car the video stops dead. Text scrolls saying “Has this happened to you?”
Then text scrolls saying “Now with a Shockwave horn fitted”
Same video again but this time when he hits the horn the sounds waves are MUCH stronger and completely engulf the car (show the car vibrating from the sounds waves for even more effect), waking up the driver and making him pay attention and look directly at the motorcycle rider (you can get the sound of the loud SHOCKWAVE horn also from the video on our website).
Briefly (for approx 2 seconds) show another view from behind the car showing the entire motorcycle and rider with sound of the horn streaming from the bike directly at you AND the bikes high beam light flashing brightly (See the website video which shows how the light flashes when horn sounds).
Now cut back to the bike riders view and show the car driver scared and wide-eyed hitting the brakes, swerving back away from motorcycle rider and stopping well clear of the path of the bike.
Lastly the bike continues and passes safely through the intersection. As he goes past the car, it shows the car driver, who is visibly shaken and frozen in his car.
Text scrolls saying “Join thousands of riders who use Screaming Banshee”………then “[url removed, login to view]”
Note: this can definitely be humorous; especially with the effect it has on the dopey car driver but still need to convey the message clearly. The motorcycle rider should be shown to be riding safely and not going too fast.
The style of bike should be a typical bike (not a Harley or a scooter etc) something that will appeal to the majority of riders.
We have images and more information but this should allow you to get a good idea of the project.
