We are seeking a talented 2D animator and illustrator to bring our thrilling and dynamic animation series, "Ämä and Äpä," to life. The series tells the captivating story of two charismatic protagonists, Ämä and Äpä, who navigate through a criminal gang neighborhood, facing off against rivals and embarking on thrilling adventures. If you're a creative mind who can animate both action-packed sequences and subtle character development in a unique Cartoon Animation Style comparable to the animation style of Family Guy, then you're the perfect fit for us!

Your Responsibilities:

Animation Creation: Develop engaging 2D animations that capture the dramatic and exciting moments of the series.
Illustrations: Draw and design characters, backgrounds, and scenes in the unique cartoon style of the series, reminiscent of Family Guy.
Storyboard Creation: Produce storyboards to visually outline the plot and sequence of episodes.
Sound Integration: Sync animations with sound effects, music, and dialogue to make scenes come alive and feel authentic.
Collaboration: Work closely with our creative team to bring the series' vision to life and contribute creative ideas.
Your Profile:

Experience: Demonstrable experience as a 2D animator and illustrator, preferably with references and work samples.
Creativity: An eye for detail and the ability to create exciting and emotionally resonant scenes.
Technical Skills: Proficiency in relevant animation and illustration software (e.g., Adobe Animate, Toon Boom, Photoshop).
Team Player: Strong communication skills and the ability to work within a creative team.
Flexibility: Willingness to take on creative challenges and contribute to an exciting project.
What We Offer:

Exciting Project: Work on a unique series with a compelling storyline and interesting characters.
Creative Freedom: Bring your own ideas to the table and actively shape the series.
Flexible Work: Remote work with flexible hours.
More Time: We can offer more time for task completion to ensure quality.
Limited Budget: Please note that our budget is limited. We cannot offer high pay, but we're willing to collaborate with you to find fair compensation.
Sample Scene:

Imagine a dark, rainy night in a criminal gang neighborhood. Ämä and Äpä hide behind cars as lightning illuminates the sky and gunshots ring out. Your task will be to animate these and many other thrilling scenes, bringing the characters to life.
