I'm looking for someone who can create very realistic 3d animated characters and put them on a transparent background for use as floating spokesmen on websites.
Basically what we'll be doing is creating video spokes-people and characters for websites with transparent backgrounds like you see popular on the internet right now only instead of using video, we'll be animating characters, rendering that as a small video with a transparent background that website owners can put on their websites as "spokespeople".
I'm looking for a 3d animator who specifiically is either familiar with or willing to learn daz studio (see [url removed, login to view] and look at the software). You'll be taking 3D models, both animals, and humans from that site and animating them to walk on screen over a website and talk expresively and as lifelike as possible. The audio will be provided. Daz has a lip sync program that we can use as well to reduce the workload but the hand gestures and movements will have to be animated.
Initially what I'm looking for is a 60 second animation where a character morphs into many different animals and people as a sample to show potential clients what their spokes-character could do. Once the website is up and the service is offered, we'll be selling custom animations like these in 30 second incraments and hopefully be able to call on you for more work. Once we sell one of these, you'll need to be able to produce them within 24 hours which should be possible with this software and considering it's pretty simple.
