Hey, all you lovely folks!
How would you feel about being a colorist or clean-up artist on my thesis film, Welcome to Hell?welcometohellfilm.tumblr.com/
Here's the blog, check it out!
Basically, my second semester is devoted to clean-up and coloring, but it's going to take me forever and I'm kind of counting on the fact that I have one or two people who have offered to help me. But if I can count on more people to help me--and definitively--that'd be even better!
This journal is just a way for me to gauge interest and feel out the possibility of having followers help me out!
Here's basically what you'd be doing:Colorists:
You would be using Photoshop or programs like Photoshop to basically fill-in all of the color on the characters! If you know how to use the fill/paint bucket tool you're pretty much qualified! You may also have to go in and touch up the parts that the fill tool wont reach. Something like a sample "style shot" with color palettes would be provided for you to follow!
Bonus points if you have a working knowledge of video layers in photoshop OR TVpaint!Clean-Up:
This may vary and is subject to change, depending on things I haven't decided on yet! Clean-up is basically inking. I'm not sure at this point if I want to do this traditionally or digitally. If I choose to do it digitally, then it will involve basically going over my rough animation sketches and making the lines more clear and easy to read. If I choose to do it traditionally, then I wont actually ask for clean-up artists, sorry!
Or I may find something else, like double-checking the colorists work or doing touch-ups.
For your work, you'll obviously be compensated! I know all too well how offensive it is to ask an artist to work for free! By the end of this semester, I plan to have a Kickstarter page up and running for my film! So I'd be able to pay you for your efforts! Plus you'll get a name in the credits! Exclamations!
Sorry I can't afford to be awfully specific about details right now, I'm still just trying to gauge whether or not this is a viable option and get something resembling a headcount, hahaha.
Please let me know if you're interested!
Also check out my poll! Right below the journal!
***TO CLARIFY: Coloring and Clean-up are processes that you do on a single image--a frame (or a cel, for you old people). Animation is a sequence of frames that create the illusion of movement. Therefore, you would be coloring multiple frames. At the moment I have no accurate projection of how many frames each person would be working on.
A knowledge of animation mechanics is a plus but not a necessity!
