2D artist with After Effects skills needed for 2 short clips


Job Description


I am looking for a 2D artist who is also skilled at After Effects for 2 short clips.

One is only around 13 seconds, and the other is slightly over 2 minutes.

I also have the voice over recorded for both as well as the text script you can look at for reference.

A friend of mine animated this, and I really liked the style: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9OunZOWZE8

I want my animation to be done in a similar style that that example, and unfortunately my friend is tied up with other projects at the moment.

This is a stock photo I have found which shows the style of art I am looking for you to create: http://depositphotos.com/13980336/stock-illustration-Fashion-man-on-the-background.html?sst=0&sqc=0&sqm=2568&sq=xct4u

The project is for a dating program for women, which will show help them to bring the romance back in to their long term relationships.

Here's what I will need from you:

1 - I will need your help to brainstorm creative ideas for the look and feel of the people involved. For the longer of the two animations, I have a completed live action video (which the animation will replace) so you should use the people in that as the basis for your animation.

2 - I will need all Photoshop, Illustrator, and After Effects files. Both raw and compressed versions.

3 - As I am using Adobe Premiere CS6 to editing, I will need the video files in that format as well.

4 - To make sure you read this posting and aren't just applying to anything you see, please tell me your favorite beverage at the very top of the cover letter.

5 - I am under a deadline, so I will need a quick turn around time.

6 - Please send me any samples you have done in a similar style. The last time I posted a job for an animator, several people sent me still images in entirely different styles and said "don't worry, I can make them move". This didn't help me in the slightest bit, so I had to eliminate them from the bidding immediately.

7 - Please be available to chat about the project via Skype, and have a clear understanding of English. It is very frustrating working with contractors who have a very strong language barrier.

8 - Please message me with any questions, comments or concerns you may have prior to bidding.

Thank you
