commerical animation work for startup {confidentially required}

We are looking for a freelance blender animation artist that can create a short commercial including audio and animation of our mascot for use on social media as an advertisement.

As the concept is highly unique there will be need for a non disclosure agreement.

The work can be done on an hourly basis and there is no strict deadline.

Looking forward to any interested freelancer reactions and hopefully you can become part of the next big thing the internet is going to see.

To give you an idea how the agreement will look like I will paste the text here below;

Service- & Non Disclosure- Agreement

Project deliverable:
* To create a 5 second animation/video including audio to be shown on social media, and other venues with a large exposure like youtube, as an advertisement for a new startup. The  advertisement will convey all important bits in 5 seconds.
* Our mascot, of which we have several svg’s, is to play an animated central role in the video.
* The project structure should be easy to adapt in terms of audio clips, overlay texts and static background images used so that it is easy to render multiple versions of the video for different audiences.

PO will then review with SP what triggered this alarm and how to prevent it if PO determines breach was not intentional.
* That disclosing of conceptual and / or commercial details by SP ,to anyone and/or any party, regarding any of PO’s projects is strictly prohibited and will result in immediate termination of the contract and will void any outstanding invoices

* With as explicit addition that in case parts of this agreement could lead to more than one interpretation during a legal dispute, the interpretation that most closely resembles best practise in the context of advertisment projects with a confidential nature is what  PO and SP have understood during signing this agreement and this interpretation is meant to be used as such by a judge in court. 

Thus agreed, drawn up in duplicate, on .. .. ….
