I am in need of several different, very short animations that are visually stimulating, rhythmic, and preferably funny, interesting, cute, or a combination of those. The ideal candidate would be creative and imaginative, able to come up with interesting, original animations with little guidance, that will connect with a pop culture audience.
The animations will vary in length; most will be less than 6 seconds long, some may be a little longer, but all of them will be under 10 seconds long. You may use Flash or Photoshop to create the animations, or other programs would be okay as long as you also send the individual frames in a .zip file in case I need to make modifications.
I would prefer a wide variety of art styles and moods to be used; in other words, keep it interesting. Artistic, anime, manga, video editing, moody, happy, bouncy, cheery; it's all welcome.
You will need to create at least 12 of these animations, and possibly more. The amount and quality of animations will be taken into account for the winning bid.
Animations cannot contain any copyrighted content that you do not own the rights for.

I will need to elaborate on what kind of animation I am looking for: I am looking specifically for fun cartoons and hand-drawn style animation. I'm not looking for advertising/business/informational slideshow or presentational style animations. Your portfolio will need to include convincing character and scene animations that are good quality and fairly high framerate.
These animations will make use of a high framerate and make only limited use of tweening, meaning that most frames will need to have portions redrawn in each frame. This shouldn't be too much of an issue considering how short the animations will be. If you have an example similar to this in your portfolio, be sure to point it out.
Characters must be inventive and may not mimic popular characters from other cartoons.
