Animators needed for animated short
show user profile  Smashbrother
A group of friends and I are working on an animated version of Super Smash Bros.

This is a huge undertaking and group effort, between myself and several others. We're looking for 3D animators/artist to round out our team. We have most of the 3D models done, we have someone working on sound/ scoring the show, the scripts are done and we have voice actors. We want to make one episode and see if it's something we'd want to continue from there.
We'll be utilizing a render farm for this and we're planing on using mocap for the project, so if you've never worked with it nows your chance.

This is a great opportunity to add something cool to your portfolio as of course you'll be credited for your work

This will be a darker take on the franchise and we're shooting for getting this done by the summer. If you're interested please emai me here

I'm guessing that means free....

I can't animate yes...but not shorts.

You guys are way too harsh! ( not you Nik i`d never say that of you honeybun )

Some people seem to enjoy trotting around flying the anti-capitalist/corporate-greed flags and then turn the other cheek and start bitching about getting paid for every little thing..

Why don`t you concentrate your valiant efforts on some of the larger work-for-nothing organisations - design contest sites like Eyeka, some of the larger publishing companies, low-pay freelance sites etc. All of these guys driving costs down..

When i was starting out i was happy to get involved in projects just for the experience etc. And i know some of the fulltime 3d guys on here still do when they can..

Maybe this place wouldn`t be such a goddamn graveyard if there were some collab projects on the go, without the burden of who`s getting paid.

In light of the sage wisdom of Dave's words, I have edited my reply above. I wish them good luck.

I guess all the times I've been asked to "just do this small thing", for somebody who knows a friend, yet never offered pay becomes an issue over the years.

Being part of a project can be good on your CV, if you are starting out, and I shouldn't bash that.

I'm not dissuaded from my position (though those are wise words). 3D work is a skilled profession, like law or accounting or engineering. I'd never have the balls to ask a lawyer or accountant or engineer to work for free. Pisses me off that it seems "reasonable" to ask a 3D artist to work for free.

I'm tired of realizing other peoples dreams and visions, even tho I'm earning....need to check myself, all I seem to be doing is work these days, no time for anything else :(

herfst1's right, clients attitude in general stinks, they want as much as they can for as little money as possible, I have a few "trained" clients I have no issue with, it's the new ones that need educating.

3D work is special, you can't compromise at any turn if you want the quality to remain high.

So my reasoned answer to this is , sorry..too busy, clear my overdraft and I'd be happy to help ;)

Well said Dave.

3D is a skilled profession, true. But like lots of creative endeavours, it's also a hobby for many.

I think the difference here is they can't make any money out of it, so it's purely a fan thing.

When people ask for free labour for commercial work, then my blood boils with fury and rage.
