Ongoing 2D Cartoon Animation series

I’m looking for an Animator or Animation Team with Illustrative skills to help me with an ongoing, part-time personal project. Because this is a personal project, there is NO client, so there’s not much budget, just me paying out of my own pocket. However, in addition to pay I’m happy to give you a line in the closing credits and flash your logo at the end, along with my own production studio logo. So you can use it to help promote your own career.

If I like your visual style and I think you can probably do the work, I just need to figure out if I can afford you. It’s all about the cost: Estimated Number of Hours per Episode.

So, go thru the details below, and let me know how it sounds to you, if you have any additional questions, and how many hours you think you would need to bill for an 8 minute episode of something that looks like Aqua Teen Hunger Force, etc. Obviously the first episode or two we will still be trying to figure out the best way to work together, so those might be a little bit more because of edits and feedback cycles, but give me a working estimate that assumes a First Draft, and then incorporating some corrections to deliver a Final Draft.

Here’s the details on the Project:


• It’s an ongoing web-based [YouTube] cartoon series.

• The humor and language is filthy, and potentially offensive. Not “mean” or “angry”, but definitely dirty language, and politically incorrect jokes.

• The “look” of it and the subjects are dark and surreal sometimes, but the illustrative style is simple and pretty clean.

• Each episode is between 6 - 9 minutes long. This includes simple opening title cards and closing credits which will be re-used for most episodes.

• I’m hoping to post at least one episode a month.

• Stylistically it’s similar to Aqua Teen Hunger Force and other Adult Swim 2D cartoons.


• Illustrator file with basic character art made up of grouped segments that can be easily repositioned. This includes Phoneme mouth shapes, different facial expressions and hand positions.

• Logo and title cards and direction.

• Animation Style Guide that goes into a bit of detail on what I think works, just as a starting point.

• Storyboards and director notes for each episode.

• All the final audio, edited down into two files: one with the dialog and sound effects, and one with an ambient sound bed for each episode.

• Illustrator files wth final art for characters, props, backgrounds, etc. for each episode.


• Most of the action is conversational dialog and laughter between the two main characters.

• Some of the action is manipulation of props, picking stuff up off the ground, etc.

• Don’t need a lot of frames for each motion [Closer to South Park, less like Pixar].

• Movements should be simple “ease-in, ease-out” animation, with more frames at the beginning and end of the action, and less frames in the middle.


• With the right Animator or Animation Team, there is room for illustrative and stylistic input & creativity. I’m hoping for someone who is more than just a “technician”; I’d like to find someone who brings a bit of their vision to the project, as well as following direction.

• As the series continues, there will be more complex scenes and illustrative needs, so an Illustrative background helps a lot.
