Job Description

We're looking for ToonBoom animators for some rotoscope animation work. We are animating 5-6, 1 minute scenes of scientists talking. All footage is shot via webcam, roughly shoulders up. Each scene contains only one scientist talking. Animators are NOT responsible for backgrounds.

Style is roughly equivalent to the following: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ss9vilNw5ds

Animators are expected to be able to animate from a style frame provided to them.

Here is an actual style frame: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1mQz3D_Mk4Vks67sDmo_Bk3lcXxCEN2LE/view?usp=sharing

Pay is commensurate to speed but generally we are tuning the process, style and complexity to allow animators to produce 6-10 seconds of finished animation per day.

Time Frame: August - September

Location: Freelance. Wherever you are.

Requirements

We are using a technique that requires some drawing and a lot of use of deformers to allow us to get the throughput needed. Animators will need to be able to work from a style frame. We will likely also provide an initial "rig" for the character but animators will modify as needed. You should know how to use envelope deformers but also be a proficient draftsman. Mouths and eyes will need to be hand animated at times. Animators should be willing to do a very short test to show they can match style and work pace if they don't have something very similar on their reel. We are very respectful of artist time and craft tests designed so that both sides can see if there is a fit.
