Looking for an artist or company to create a 1 minute 2-D color animated comedic cartoon for my characters. Script and Storyboard will be given for this animation. The style of the animation will be similar to Spongebob where there is a lot of movement and exaggerated movements and lots of facial expressions and the style is hand-drawn instead of flash-like. I'd like to keep the budget below $500. Ideally, the cartoon should be fully colored, but if it helps to keep costs within budget, backgrounds could be done in black and white while the characters and certain objects stay in color. The 1 minute will not include the title or credits. You will not be responsible for sound effects.
Here's an example of a black and white background. The cartoon style will be similar in that in there is a lot of movement:

If the first 1 minute episode is well-done, successful and well-received by audience, I will like to continue creating 1 minute cartoons on a weekly basis for a year (52 episodes) at the same price. So I am also looking for an artist or company who can keep at this pace and stay within my budget for future animations.
thanks for looking!
