I am building a crew of visual artists to join the team to create an animated web series short. The series centers around a group of shopping mall regulars and their over-the-top battles. It's Family Guy meets Mall Rats with a bit of Metalocalypse.
We are going to produce a 3-5 minutes animated short for the web and I want everyone to have creative input on the project. I'm a writer with a visual design background, but everyone involved can offer suggestions, bring their own skill set to the team, and truly collaborate, not just animate my short film idea.
Here's who we need to join the team (and a basic description):
2D Illustrator / Flash Designer - Basic cartoon styles, similar to Family Guy visuals, nothing overly complicated. We have character designs already, but we will need backgrounds and objects as well.
Storyboard Artist - Basic designs, nothing too detailed as the animation design will be simple and clean.
Flash Animators - Basic 2D style, not heavy on detail, no complicated movement needed.
The long term plan is to create this short as a calling card for what we can do, use it to build an audience, and run a Kickstarter to fund future episodes of this or other ideas. If we do this one for free, we can find an audience and easily make money on future projects.
I’m open to bartering service-for-service. I can offer any service related to screenwriting (script analysis, writing, edits) and graphic design (logos, flyers, brochures, WordPress websites).
Please contact me with your name, area of interest, and a link to your work. Thanks!
