View Full Version : help with animation...
18th April 2002, 03:42 AM
Hi all. I am still working hard on my first loop series and I am in need of some talented 3D animators out there. I wasn't sure weather this was the place to post but I thought I'd give it a shot.
I am in the process of setting up a website to promote my loop series/vj stuff but it will take a while. in the meantime, if you wanted to see some of my other stuff (to give you an idea of my style), check out my online portfolio at:
If anyone is interested please feel free to contact me at:

so you looking for 3d animators? What type of animation are you needing and what's it for, vj work?
having been floating around this forum for a while I think the general consensus is that animation for vjing is:
1. too dificult to make - rather like trying to read someones mind and then put on tape!
2. can easily be done with low end 3d packages, with a little practice.
3. high qual, bespoke animation i.e non fractal non kalidescope work takes a lot of creative energy so is expensive(sorry).
however i don't know what type of animation you require - so the above may not apply.
hope this helps you...
by the way, i went to your website but couldn't access your portfolio! u sure its there! :)

Hey Rossco, don't worry about it, I've got a friend who lives relatively close to me and is getting very good at realistic 3D design (he's also been teaching me a few things along the way).
Yeah my portfolio is there, it just takes a while to load the external flash file into the existing flash file (it doesn't take you to a new page or anything).

I do a completely 3d animated vj show every 3 weeks. Rossco is right in saying it's difficult but i find the long hours pay off on the night. By doing this you have complete creative control over your show which means you have the ability to create a narative for your show. people also get a buzz out of knowing there seeing something especially made for them.
What do you want animated?
Whats in it for me?
check the golden deck

does "the attach" file work?

nice one rudehead, it must take a long time, do you actually get paid for the pre-production or do you do this for your own pleasure? :)

no only for the show. I 'm building a folio for an animation course i want to get into next year. I tought it would be a good way to get paid for doing work i would do anyway. the good thing about making your own models is that you can use them again and again. I made those decks a year ago but since then i've used in about ten different projects.
if you like 3d animation check
these four are definately worth a look:
Fifty Percent Grey by R. Robinson
"F8" by Jason Wen (this was made by one guy, over a year)
19 Peel Street
(actually there all pretty good)
