Join 500,000+ Artists
Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
Ok what I need: Someone whom can refine some simple character sketches that I have of a cartoon animals. I have a script and need to put together a small 2 minute trailer (animation) simple.
What I am looking to do:
I eventually would like to pitch my cartoon idea to networks, however I would like to put a 2 minute trailer of my characters on Kickstarter to generate money to pay an artist and/or animator (they require me to have a small trailer.
What I offer:
I can pay you what you think it would cost to create a simple animation trailer (though this would go to the lowest bidder)
I can sign a contract with you and give you a percentage of what the ad on Kickstarter brings in. For instance..Kick starter generates $30k I can pay you 10% or more depending on the quality of work that you are willing to do for free just until it generates money.
if you are unfamiliar with Kickstarter please take a look at the site. I need an animator to get approved. Please contact me @ email@example.com for more details.
Seriously? You think 2 minutes of animation is worth only 10% of the money you bring on? Do you have any clue about how time consuming animation is? Let me put it to you this way. it can take 4 to 6 weeks to complete the storyboards for an 11 minute episode. That doesn't include revisions or story changes. Students will often spend an entire semester working on an animated short. (30-90 seconds is usually the recommended time.)
Let's take a look at that. 10% of 30k would be 3k. Right. Okay. Have you looked at what the union minimums are for animators? That's a week and a half, maybe two. http://animationguild.org
So...back to doing a two minute short in a semester. A semester is 16 weeks long at a State University, so let's go with that. 3k/16=187.5 per week, which works out to......
4.69 an hour. Less than the federal minimum wage. Any further comments?
And by the way? If you still want to post this ad, you are in the wrong part of the site. Go here: http://jobs.conceptart.org/
Also, are you sure they require an animated trailer?
