Our team is working on a card game to be complimented by an augmented reality app. We are looking for an experienced 3D animator/modeler to create 1, 5-10 second animation of the Kraken for our game!
There are 5 cards in total: Triton, Kraken, Pirates, Nautilus and Sharks! We are only looking to animate the Kraken to start. If we find an animator that fits well, there will likely be more work to come. We will be using this animation to market for additional funding for the remaining animations.
Each card, when viewed by the augmented reality app, will spring to life. 3D animations will emerge from the card, utilizing the texture, patterns and environment designs in the card. Animations and models should match the design perfectly. Animations should be exciting and engaging. Though the game won't be dependent on the animations or app, we want it to be appealing enough that kids and families want to use the app to check out the animations.
Here is a link to the Kraken card in the game, along with the rest of the "wonder" cards to give you more context about the style and tone of the game:

In addition, included in the link are a few sketches and mock-ups to spark ideas about how the Kraken animation could look and interact. Here is an early explanation and example of how the augmented reality app and 3D animations should work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DcUz9MoZWmw.
We will be using Metaio Creator to compile and publish the augmented reality app. The following file formats seem to work best: .fbx, .dae, .md2.
We would like to view previous work experience and examples of prior work. We are excited and serious about creating an engaging game to market later this year. Look forward to working with a talented and dedicated 3D artistst and animator!
