Hello! My name is Tyler W. Moore and I am the creator, executive producer, head writer and director of an animated webseries called "Brimstone Terrace".
The show is about a man named Alan who makes the impulsive mistake of taking his own life. Not long after, he finds himself sentenced to an eternity in Hell. But the cruel, dark underworld doesn’t work exactly how we all expected. In the past centuries, things have changed and the devil himself is showing sympathy for those who barely made the cut. Now, alongside his new friends, Alan must learn to face his fate and adapt to life in Hell.
The show is currently in the middle of it’s first season running exclusively on http://www.blip.tv/brimstoneterrace.
So why am I posting a job ad? Good question! I need a bit of extra help for the 6th episode (the season finale). I usually animate this show entirely by myself which is difficult enough already, even with a lot of short cuts. The season finale contains, as one would expect, a spectacular climax which would be far too dificult for an “animator” of my “skill” level to pull off.
So I’m looking for animators (preferably two) to help me with this dificult sequence.
Intrigued? Let’s discuss some finer details:
What kind of animation is this?
Brimstone is a 2D animated show that combines hand drawn & digital animation styles. In this case, It doesn’t matter if it is completely digital as long as it looks hand drawn.
My animation style is extremely simple, there aren’t usually a lot of big movements (people sort of stand still while they talk). This of course is more of an action packed sequence so while it would have more movement in it, it will still be fairly simple in order to match up with my pre-established style.
How much work would I be doing?
To give you the full scope of what you would be tackeling, we’re looking at around 70-90ish shots (that’s a very rough estimate since I haven’t storyboarded the sequence just yet). Bare in mind, a lot of these are quick cuts due to the fast paced nature of the scene.
Also, as I said, I would like to have the work split between two animators. You could split it up 50/50 or have one person handling certain aspects as the other handles something else. We’ll figure out exactly how we want to devide this up when we get to that point.
When is the deadline?
End of June/ beginning of July.
How am I being compensated?
Hey! Woah! Slow down Speed Racer! You will of course get credited in the episode and recieve a credit on IMDb. The budget for this project is very low but there will be monitary comepnsation. We’ll discuss a price later on.
How do I apply?
Send me an e-mail at email@example.com with a reel or some sort of example of your work. I would highly suggest checking out the series itself so that you know exactly what you’re getting in to.
Please do not apply via commenting or messaging me on this site!
Thank you for your time. I look forward to hopefully working with you and making something great.
