I’m looking to develop a short whiteboard animation (i.e. drawing on a whiteboard or sketchbook) to promote a group of volunteer product ambassadors/evangelists.
The animation will be posted on a customer-facing Mendeley site.
We are looking for an illustrator who is:
--willing to draw live on camera by hand
--simple, clean, but fun style that matches our company’s culture of “changing the way we do research.” The end result will be speeded up and edited by our video editor.
--Willingness to do preparation work, such as concept meeting, storyboarding and production of external elements, a dress rehearsal (if needed) and live shooting.
--Ability to work collaboratively with the in-house team.
--Previous experience on similar whiteboard/chalkboard animations (not a blocker if you do not have this experience so long as you’re willing to experiment!)
The script idea is based around children’s paper dressing dolls (just do a Google image search for “paper dolls” if you don’t know what I’m talking about). We want to show a live-drawn researcher figure wearing successive paper doll-type outfits to illustrate the different motivations people have for becoming Advisors.
We have done a test draft of this using a talented co-worker but would like to hire a professional illustrator that matches our style.
Please submit 3-5 samples of hand-drawn work along with a time/monetary budget.
