Looking for Animators (paid)

Posted by sirjeffofshort - 3 weeks ago

Hi all!

As some of you may know, we have been working over the past year or so to record more Sketched episodes and at this point have a good amount of audio to work with. Now we have been able to come up with a small budget to produce a full length pilot episode of Sketched!

Sketched, from the moment it started, has always been about experimentation and exploration, so in keeping with that theme, we envision this series being an opportunity to showcase different independent animators with each skit animated in a unique style.

Each skit varies in length from around 4-8 minutes, and we are looking to have 3-4 of them animated (on top of some that we will be animating ourselves). Fully edited audio for each skit will be provided to each animator to produce in their preferred style.

As mentioned in the post title, we are offering to pay for this work. While our budget isn't exactly huge, we recognize more than most in this industry that animation is hard and sometimes arduous work, and we want to at least offer some compensation for your hard work.

Additionally, we want to allow animators to retain the right to showcase their work on any online platform of their choosing and allow them to retain any revenue that work may bring in for themselves. All we ask is that we be given time to shop around the pilot first, and in lieu of a deal, be allowed to release the full pilot online before individual skits are posted.

If any of this sounds interesting to anyone, feel free to drop a comment or send me a PM and we can talk. All styles and level of skill are welcome!

Hello! Here is my portfolio link:

Let me know if this is something you're looking for!

Hey! Yeah, I think your style is pretty unique and could make for some really fun animations. Send me a PM and we can talk about project details and see if you're interested.

I'd be interested to do this sort of stuff, but I'd like to ask if there's any deadlines to follow, because I don't really have a lot of time for this stuff.

Yeah, we aren't looking to put any strict deadlines on anyone that we decide to work with. If you think you might have the time in the coming months, send me a PM and we can see if we can work something out.

Sound interesting. I'd be interested in giving it a shot. Would like to hear some of the audio skits there are to work with. :D

Great! I'll PM you a link to some of the audio skits and we can take it from there!

Might be fun to do a proper animation again. Guess it depends on the skit.

It would be so cool to work with you! I totally remember your animations from back in the day. I'll PM you a link to listen to some of the audio and see what you think.

Hey what's the pay? I might b interested... Ther's some stuff on my NG page if your interested

Cool! I like your style for sure. I'll message with some of the details and we can see if you're interested.

@jthrash @sirjeffofshort Is it okay if I send you a PM on Thursday? I'm still interested, but today was a busy day and I would rather talk about the project when I have more energy tomorrow.

Of course. No rush at all.
