Recruiting Flash animators for PAID work

2015-10-12 17:27:42 by HowardWimshurst

Are you a Flash animator looking for freelance work? I'm expanding my freelance animation business.

Lately, I have been receiving too many freelance offers for me to undertake by myself. Instead of turning away these offers, I have decided to put together a contact list of animators and artists to outsource this extra work to. Think of it as a studio, but with flexible working hours and based completely online. Your skill, reliability and availability will determine how many offers come your way and also how much you are paid per second of animation.

If you're interested, check out the link below. There is more info explaining this concept in detail. Fill in the form and I will get back to you if and when I match you up with a project.

What kind of work do people generally commission?
Is the bulk of you requests coming from people who want music videos, artistic pieces, or just goofy comedy/dialogue scenes?

HowardWimshurst responds:

That's a good question!
I don't have my history of requests up in front of me, but here's my guess

40%- Anime-esque original web series
30% - Kickstarter promotion material
15% - music videos
5% are TV add related
5% are video game art/ animation related
5% are animated logo/ intro related

I generally only get requests for full body styles (pretty much my own style) either Anime style or comic book/ semi realistic proportions. Nothing too cartoony comes my way. Working for me, you would mostly need to imitate my style as much as possible, unless I specifically need something in your own style which is rare.

The Original web series and music videos together make up the most of the revenue as these are the biggest deals and require the largest amount of work. The other requests earn less and often we don't reach a negotiation.

Interesting :) Is there a specific time period that you need freelance artists? Or in theory could I hop in when I am available beyond schoolwork?

(Updated ) HowardWimshurst responds:

The idea is that you sign onto the contact list whenever you please, then I contact you when I have a suitable job for you. The important thing is that you are reliable with communication and how much time you have to spare.

I have more experience with ToonBoom, but have no problem using Flash. Anime is really not my thing, but depending on the pay I could work it out. I have no problem replicating styles, as seen here:

I have an animation reel if you need to see one (a bit outdated, but nonetheless effective):

Let me know what's up, doc.

HowardWimshurst responds:

yup, submit an application and I'll add you to the list

I might be able to help you, but my style is a lot different from yours. I dont really have time because of the school, but i could help you on some of the smaller animation. I dont have time to do my animations anymore, but i could help you on some of the smaller stuff. You dont need to pay me, I just want to animate some (Ill still fill the application for info).

HowardWimshurst responds:

Dude I really respect your work, by all means apply and if anything small comes up i'll let you know :)
