Seeking help from 3D animators

The Indy Film Co-op, a film co-operative of over 2200 member is seeking animators. We have just completed three projects:

1) A pilot for a SCI-FI project which takes place on a moon of Jupiter
2) A modern day comedic sci-fi tale
3) An miniseries for the web set in Iraq

We desperately need CGI help, we had thought we had assistance in place but the CGI artists have been proven unreliable. All of these films were done for an exceedingly low budget and compensation would be limited to equity in the project. The films were all shot 1080i 24p with the Sony EX1.
Please email if interested

Thank you

Practice and build your animation skills

Would anybody like to whip up a few short Flash animations of monster characters doing a creepy things, scuttling, twitching, shivering etc for the following show?Angela Barnett, AIM 2005 graduate and creative producer of 'Immersion' is seeking help with such animation for a multi-screen projection for Melbourne Fashion Week. The theme for the show is 'Monster Mash, Pushing Up Daisies'. The setting in an abandoned city (a bit Sin City style). Every now and again we see little monsters running through the city, and flashes of a murder scene. Christian Rubino is modeling a 3D city and Angela will be texturing the buildings in sketchy comic book way. What she needs is a number of small animations of little monster characters to put into the scene.
Angela is not able to pay anybody as there is no budget for the show, but the work will be shown to highly recognised media and fashion industry bodies and she will be able to promote the animators' names and contacts through the promotional material and at the show itself. Who knows what work it might lead to? The animations must be completed by Monday 11th of August, 2008.Please contact Angela if you can help:

Animation Teacher

I intend to teach the theoretical side of animation to my year 8 students and would like to bring in a student animator to assist me with the practical side. It would require the guest speaker to teach the practical side of animation once a week for 5 weeks. I am after someone who is articulate, fluent in the English language and patient, since my students are very young and will ask a zillion questions. The unit on animation will begin in august and will pay $500 for the 5 weeks. The classes run for 45 minutes a week. Is it possible if you could pass on this email to animation students at rmit. They can contact me on the following email

kindest regards
