I am looking to establish a long-term relationship with a dynamic animation group that can help me with future projects. This project is meant to be a paid audition so to speak to showcase your ability and talents for future and lengthier projects. I will accept bids for both 2D and 3D animation, but quality is very key for me. This will not be a corporate type of video where lower quality is acceptable - this is a prep for an entertainment type project where I really want to get the best quality possible.
What I am looking for in this project is to help create an approximately 3 minute short for which I have already prepared the animation format script. In order to win this bid, I am requiring you to submit a 3 - 5 second clip of your visualization of the main character running along a riverside (details below). I am very familiar with animation and understand the huge amount of work that goes into it and so I appreciate up-front your time in preparing this sample for me.
The winner of this bid will be able to furnish me a storyboard and then color script before we move forward to the actual animation aspect. I am going to post that I want the project done within 2-3 weeks though for exceptional cases and high quality work, I will be willing to give more time.
The general synopsis of this short is that of a man in his mid to late 30's walking along a riverside when he sees a young girl playing on the shore about to be attacked by an alligator. He races to the shoreline to save her and has to fight the alligator off who by then has already latched his jaws onto the little girl's shirt. As the alligator opens his jaws to grab the girl's arm, the man hits the snout of the alligator forcefully with a plank of wood he scooped up from the shoreline. He then wrestles with the alligator in the water, killing it in the end to save the young girl's life. A policeman witnesses the entire event from a distance and comes to thank the man .... Though it may not sound like it now, this is actually going to be a comedic short due to the ending which I won't mention here.
My concept of the man would be that of a fit, bearded, olive skinned man wearing jeans and a black t-shirt that says HATERS GONNA HATE. If it's too much of a challenge to write that, then a peace sign would be cool too. I imagine him to be wearing brown shoes. The riverside is a typical Florida or East Texas one - here are some photo examples:
