We're seeking someone who can create and animate a character for us.
What we have in mind is more of a traditional, 2D animation, kind of simple and hand-drawn-looking (note that I said looking, not necessarily that it has to be hand-drawn).
We have yet to create a concept for the characters in the animation, beyond it being kind of a tentacle-beast, that runs, grabs, chases, etc. The other characters might be a woman, a man, some business customers, etc.
The style and background of this commercial is in keeping with the aesthetic we're seeking https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twhvtzd6gXA
I'd offer a link to the kind of creature we seek, if I could only find one. He's supposed to be somewhat intimidating but is also able to be tamed (in fact, he will be tamed in this spot) shouldn't be too cutesy but not scary either. Easy, right? Har Har!
We're in the process of writing the script right now and recording a voice-over. At this point in time, we're seeking submissions from interested animators.
By the way, there is potential for an ongoing role for someone who can create the look and feel we want, deliver on time and on budget, and is self-directed and creative.
Please submit samples, even sketches if you're so inclined (not asking anyone to work for free, just that sketches will help us to better understand what you do), an estimated budget (or hourly commitment) for creating characters and animating them for a 45-60 second video.
Upwork will not let me choose a custom pay range. I'm not necessarily looking for the cheapest, rather the best fit for the work.
THANKS and we look forward to seeing your work!
