      Hey Atif,

      We gonna wait for more than 3 weeks for all the jobs applications, depending on what we are gonna find.
      Looking forward,

  1. Rombout Versluijs on

    If im honest i dont thin a lot of wetsern people will react to this. Thats kind of a low fee for such a mount of work. Good luck!

      Hey Rombout,

      First of all, I'm glad you take time to write your opinion about our rates for the job positions that we offer.
      However, please take in consideration that we are not a located studio, where you need to move to a certain location and pay rents and other expenses.
      In our case, you can work from your home, with your own program.

      Also, we think that this is a good opportunity for artists with good skills but at the beginning of their journey.
      Thank you for the luck!

      • Not to sidetrack this too much, if you want studio or process competent individuals based in stronger dollar economies (North America, Western EU), @Rombout is correct in his observation. the rates stated are *very* low - in that market space you'll likely only get students or people not experienced in production (which you seem fine with)... working from home has little bearing on this as persons are hired for their skills not where they're located, that just benefits your studio not having employment/employee costs to cover

        With that said, good luck with the project.

          I respect your opinion.
          But please consider that not all the studios have the same budget.
          We are at the beginning of our journey with this project which is more like a passion for us.

          And nobody said that the budgets are fixed forever.
          If we gonna have a success with the first episode we may adjust our rates as well.

          Thank you for interest,

          • It is worth including details like this in your pitch, prospective contractors can only go on what information is provided and where that data is posted, so your perceived honesty in that regard, and being upfront about things like that, would likely work in your favor. Just something to consider.

            Good look with the project nonetheless!.

  2. Hello,
    Are you guys still looking for work? I want to learn Blender to join the project, but I have had extensive previous experience in computer animation!
