Animators Needed for 2D Animated Web Series

Date posted: Sep 16th, 2018

View More >

We're looking to hire on a few more animators to be a part of our small team at an independent animation studio. We're currently working on a web series set to launch next year. It's a 2-Dimensional Puppet-Rig animation, and we're working out of Adobe After Effects using the Duik plugin.

All of the assets (character puppets, props, backdrops, etc.) will already be constructed. We will also provide you with the audio tracks, video storyboards, detailed notes explaining how each shot and scene is to unfold, and all the assets you need to build the scene. Then, your work as the animator will be to take all of this material and bring it to life.

If you are not very familiar with After Effects or Duik but have done quality animation work using other software and plugins, we would be happy to provide basic training and introductions to the workflow that our team currently uses to quickly get you up to speed. Just provide a link to a demo reel with your application.

The rate of payment for completing animation will be $200 per minute of animation completed, with a higher rate for more complicated shots.

If interested, please email me at Jameson.Richards.film@gmail.com. Please include a resume and/or a brief description of previous experience, as well as a link to any demoreel or previous work you may have.

MINNEAPOLICE

Date posted: Apr 4th, 2018

View More >

We are working on a project titled "MINNEAPOLICE". It is one of many steps that we are taking to bridge the gap between the community and law enforcement. All of our projects focus on bringing the action to the public eye. There are many productions going on around our great state but none are seen as we are driving through our communities. We want to change that. We feel if the action is taking place in public view, it does something wonderful and productive for the community, the state, the cast involved, and our local film industry. 

 
This particular project is purposely filled with action. It is about a SWAT team, which will project law enforcement as being human and not just how many in our society sees them. No matter which side you stand on, peace, understanding, cooperation and security is needed from both sides.
 
We have planned to shoot a promo for the movie. The promo will be a shootout between the SWAT team and one of the main characters on Broadway in Minneapolis. SWAT will be in full gear. The actors/actresses will be using blank guns. The idea is to be loud and dramatic to get the community's attention. This project has elements that no other has in this state and is very necessary. The story touches on gun control, school shootings, and again, bridging the gap.
 
We need stand-ins and extras to complete this exciting project. If you want to be a part of a growing legacy, by all means contact me. If you think you can help with your expertise, energy and knowledge please contact me.
