An anime-style animator for a short film

Posted 3 weeks ago

Hi there!

I'm looking for an animator for an animated short film. The film will likely fall around the fifteen minute mark (most likely a little longer) but is very limited in terms of scope. The project is all set within one conversation between two characters (there is a third character, but they are on screen for about 30 seconds). Hence, movement is extremely limited save for the beginning and the end of the movie. Also, the scene itself does not move around a lot, mostly takes place inside an apartment building. Due to the premise of this, of course, there is voice acting. Mouths will need to be animated in sync with this, although I have written for scenes to break away to static images occasionally in order to ease this burden slightly.

Furthermore, character designs have been completed for the characters along with 90% of the backgrounds for all scenes have already been completed, see examples below. Storyboards have been completed also, although one or two frames have been changed to make it easier for the animator.

So, to summarise, I am looking for an anime-style animator for this project. Despite movement being limited, I do want it to feel professionally done. Backgrounds, character designs, voice acting and soundtrack have all been complete, and this is the final step before editing. Please send examples of your work with your proposal.

If you would like to see/ hear more details about the project, budget etc. get in touch or check out my Instagram page (which has more backgrounds and details about the project).
