      > I forwarded your email to my best friend who's graduating this semester with a BFA in animation.  He loves anime and I'm sure he'd be willing to help but once he's out of school he won't have access to the studio equipment necessary to animate anymore, so he'll be looking for a job at a studio first and foremost.  However he did mention to me that he's interested in freelance work if it can keep him here in Michigan.  Anyway, it'd be a good opportunity for a portfolio piece like you said.


      Thanks. :-)

      Cheers,

        I can do a little bit of animating via photoshop. I'm just a beginner though, but I'd be happy to help. ^^

        Thanks, keep it in mind, if we get a team together, we'll see where we can fit that in.

        Cheers,

        Erica

          Feel free to harras me if you want, i kniw alot about video just from the sheer amount of amvs i've done. Though most of my experience is with 3D from what i did in school my major was animation so if you got any questions let me know.

          I do know some Voice acting communities also along with some Pro/amature VAs can't Garnette anything but i at least know a few people. A big question with the audio would be are you doing pre-lay or dubbing? (for those that don't know that's for all ADR work not just making it english)

          One thing which wasn't mentioned a storyboard artist and whoever is the best 2d animator should do the keyframes, the rest inbetweens.

          Yea i know a lot. Feel free to bug me.

                The following message is from my friend Jozi.  He's been under a lot of strain lately because his senior animation project is due in a few weeks.  Consequently he's been getting between two and four hours sleep a night.  Normally he's quite personable:

                I have access to professional equipment till the end of Jan. Officially I can access it till the end of May, as an alumni, but I don't know if I'll be residing within the city limits. If Erica wants anything from me that has HD resolution, I would need an outline or pitch by December, so I can plan ahead, animate, and use the equipment to produce something for viewing audiences.
                If she's looking for a director, I can do it, but the deadline for this project (at least for me) is Jan 30th. Anything after Jan. can't be a guarantee.

                So right now i would need a concept or pitch of what's she's going for. . .  right now, I have no idea.

                I need examples of what she would like to do (she can throw youtube videos for this), I need references of these characters so I can produce model sheets (for anyone else who wants to join the project). And looking at the time constraint I'm under, I would say I can produce 30sec - 1:30 min of animation, depending on how complicated the shots are.

                This would be a short term helping hand. She can take it or leave it. Its all I can give.

                Let her know I can produce something, but there will be upcoming deadlines.

                Also I might not be the greatest person to talk to directly atm, because I'm grumpy and overstressed from a student film I'm trying to finish.

                I'll have you be the negotiator.

                I need to catch ya online sometime soon.

                Later,

                            Erica,
                              I absolutely understand what you're saying, but if you do need a storyboard artist or any of Alan's other skills (like background design), he will volunteer himself -- this, I know. He's always willing to help me out with art projects and such (he also has a lot of free time on his hands these days).

                              Alan is consistently dedicated to any of the work he does (and is totally down for the Yuri cause, btw), so if you need him, I'll ask him to make a Yuricon Group account so he can volunteer himself. Just let me know if you need his abilities.

                            If you feel that you need to, you can reply to me off-list if this is getting a little too murky and OT.  ^_^;

                            Sincerely,
                            Ariel D.

                            > I totally appreciate you volunteering your Dad, but I'm looking for people who will volunteer themselves. Volunteering once removed almost never really works, since the person being volunteered isn't the person engaged in the project. :-)
