This isn't strictly comic related, and it -may- turn into paid work later on, so if it needs to be deleted/moved respectively feel free to do so.
So I'm doing a cartoon pitch to Cartoon Hangover, and wanted to look for someone to help me out with the project on the art side. I already have a majority, if not all of the characters voiced and designed for the pitch, but I need someone who can do quick and dirty storyboarding AND/OR backgrounds for animation.
Qualifications for this:
-MUST have knowledge of how animated camera moves are done. I can and will provide sketches for the backgrounds of how I generally want them to look but things like camera turns will look really wonky if you don't know how they're done. For storyboarding, you can just draw on top of the basic backgrounds and use squares and arrows to represent camera moves, so it's not as necessary.
-Must have a good critical eye for your own work as well as mine. This is a team project (Even if it is my brainchild) and I would love feedback. Likewise, you will also receive constructive feedback, so a thick skin and the ability to take things with a grain of salt are a major bonus.
For storyboards: Please be a quick drawer. I need the storyboards quickly and timely, and changes are likely to be made on a whim. Since this isn't a paying gig right off the bat, I understand things like life, but I'm going to be gearing up for production in the coming weeks and need these storyboards presented on a daily basis. Also, don't worry about being particularly good! If you've got good motion design and are good enough to portray which character is which, you've got a chance at the role (Though for Voiders I'm expecting at least a good basis from you lot!
For Background artists: You can take your time. Backgrounds can be changed mid production as needs change, but the whole point of the storyboard artist is that the planning is good enough that we don't need to go through the trouble of that. So make it a piece worth looking at!
Lastly, some info on the project in general to help the setting for you guys: It's a fantasy themed post apocalyptic world. For Backgrounds, I'd love a concept art painterly style done for them; varying tones, good form and understanding of lighting and mood are huge bonues. They don't need to be particularly detailed; on the contrary, I need them to be quite simple so they don't detract from the animation, which is going to be quite hyper and exciting (aside from a few calm shots).
I'm giving this to Voiders first since you guys have helped me grow as an artist a lot in the past few years. However, in a week or two I'm widening my search to other sites. I know this may not be quite up your guys' alley, but I wanted to give back a bit from the community.
I think that's everything. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with portfolios or questions, or you can simply post here.
Edit: Oh, forgot one thing! This is an opportunity to break into the animation industry in general, as the project will be carried out as a series regardless of if the pitch to cartoon Hangover is not accepted. If you think you're up to that, feel free to send stuff my way!
