Hello, I am a member of a recently created team of people called Paradox Pictures. We are a group of volunteer blender users from all over the world that will collectively create animated stories and series together. Currently, we are asking for more volunteers to help out. Anyone can join; Even if you’re just starting out on Blender you can join, and hopefully our team will be made up of people with different skill levels to learn and teach from each other. Of course, there will be no pay at first as this will be a chance for us to work together and make stories come to life. Hopefully, as time goes on and our skills become more refined and we’ll proceed to create bigger projects that will generate money.
The plan for us to start out small with short stories animation just to see the scope of what we can do and improve our skills and fix our mistakes over time. As the team works and our blender skills improve we move into bigger projects like a series and perhaps mini movies.
What we accomplish already?
We are a relatively new group but we have already created a website, the design of the team name and logo. Currently, we are brainstorming story ideas. Currently we have a script and are starting production.
Who we are?
There are currently ten of us (including me) from all over the world with different skill levels to work together. From concept artist to programmer. In this team, everyone is equal with no boss/employee relationship.
List of people we currently need
- Lights and Material
- Character Modeler
- Character Rigger
- Environment Artist/Modeler
- Sound Design
- Storyboard artist
- Voice Actor
(Once again we accept all skill levels)
