    Lightwave Artists needed for pilot project

    In what could be a huge boost to the Lightwave community, my studio is producing an entire mixed CG/ live action monster fighting show. Think American Gladiators meets Godzilla. We are looking for some great teammates to help complete the rigging and animation work. We're shooting at Universal Studio's new Virtual Stage. It's an amazing groundbreaking project that would welcome the LW community in this one-of-a-kind globally crowd sourced production.
    Please see below if you are interested in helping out.


    3D Riggers needed to rig all joints of monsters built in Lightwave and animate them doing things (6 second animations)

    •*eating a sandwich
    •*breakdancing
    •*blowing up a building

    We will provide monsters in lightwave files. We are using Lightwave 3D version 9.6. The models are not rigged, and are without endomorphs.

    Animators should deliver the entire scene w/ objects - they are welcome to create endomorphs for the objects.

    Animators will get $100 for each character rigged and animated to satisfaction.
    Besides for the fee, you will get on-screen credit and a great chance to be signed on for the full run of shows at your normal rate.

    Once you sign the Non-Disclosure form and get it back to us,

    (email them to jobs (at) 7ate9.com ) we will give you the models. Thanks

    Hmm, I'm not quite sure what to think about this one. Personally crowdsourcing tends to be a bit dubious in my experience. Is all the content on your website from crowdsourcing?

    Perhaps more specific information like:

    1) is this a pilot or is this an established program? I.E. are there visual references?
    2) what form of distribution are we looking at here? TV Network? Internet? Small pamphlets by eager young space cadets? (sorry, I couldn't resist that last one)

    I second that ,not only that you ask for rigging and blowing a building up ,these are 2 totally different work loads ,being 9.6 also raises several issues.

    I could do it for $100.

    The only problem is I know nothing about rigging

    Yeah, crowd source my arse.

    $100 for a rigged character in a 6 second animation is greatly undervaluing the work involved and is quite laughable. Who knows maybe there will be a few desperate artists out there who will work for peanuts, there always is isn't there?

    In my opinion this thread should be moved to Classifieds> Job Announcements even if it is for a couple peanuts with a carrot dangling at the end that will inevitably get yanked before you can grab it.

    Any professional who does rigging is going to be offended by your offer of $100 per rig.
    However, this is a great opportunity for students or hobbyists looking to go pro to work on a tangible project for their portfolio.
    I guess you can see from the initial reaction that this is the case.

    The operational word here would be to insert the word "could" be a great opportunity for students. It really depends on where it will be seen. If on a television network, then yes it will have some notoriety but if it's a youtube series that gets 10k views then you're probably better off using something like this as an educational exercise because becoming noticed would be hard to sell.

    Examples of what animation quality is expected would be helpful for those who are interested.

    It is a quality statement of the eternal peril brought to us by angry bratwurst though. Remember folks, the only good bratwurst is a consumed bratwurst.
