anyone in the U.S. wanna make some money?

So here's the deal. I was laid off in October last year and decided to start my own business. Got a call on Jan 1 from a client that wants a ton of animation and power point work done by March 5th.
"3 Months?" I think to myself. "I have done larger projects in less time before."
"Sure, why not?" I say to the client. "I can do it."
They then tell me I need to bid on it. And that there is another company in the running. I build the bid and send it off. About a week later I get a call saying the other company is getting cold feet, so I automatically get the whole thing.
"Great!" I thought. "When can I get started?"
"We will get you some information soon" they tell me.
Weeks drag by before I get anything. In the mean-time I line up 2 others to assist.
The day comes when I get the green-light and the first guy drops out. He doesn't have the time to let me pay him.
I started gathering info, began to plan, and started some powerpoint stuff while the other guy did some modeling. I budgeted a week and a half to two weeks to do the modeling. It took him two and a half, but I got it. He asks what else he can help with so I send him 2 powerpoints a few days ago and tell him I will get a check in the mail next Monday if he delivers by Sunday. He agrees,but I just got an email saying he can no longer help me.

Bottom line - I am in need of help and I have a $2,000 USD budget to get the animating done. I will take over the power point stuff in the meantime.

If anyone is interested, I have the model 99% ready to go. Must be U.S. resident willing to fill out a 1099 form for taxes. I can pay $500.00 on receipt of completed work, with the balance when the bill gets paid.

Anyone feel adventurous?

It's a series of small animations actually. Probably 5-6, each 10-45 seconds. VERY basic. These will be shown in court to educate a jury, so slow movements. Nothing organic, all mechanical (with some chain and steel cables)

Sorry, I can't give too much detail in public since it is an active case. I can give more details through chat, email, or telephone.

Shouldn't take more than a couple hours for a pro like Bolts

I don't need it rendered out or anything, just mostly camera animations. I will render later and add annotations in After Effects later.

The chains are taut the whole time, no crumpling. The only deformations will be cables changing position and anchors coming up out of the ground (no ground deformations or clouds of silt).

Really, a recent college grad could handle this, I just don't have the time right now.
