It’s better to get an idea of how these projects are made by participating in a few of them before attempting to be the coordinator of one.
For jobs types, small companies relies on generalists that knows different areas : like modeling , rigging , shading . Animation is generally done by people who do animation only. And there are also people specialized in visual storytelling that can do storyboards or directing, they have a good knowledge on how to convey the story from shots to shots.
You may need also someone specialized in editing and a sound designer.
There are also pipeline TDs, that help bring all the tools together , solve technical issues , or can advice on what is complicated to do .
About generalist there are no rules, someone can be really good at rigging and FX, another good at modeling and really good at lighting / rendering. It will depends on people you will find. Once you get a core team you can search for specialist to compensate a skill that is lacking in your team.
Outsourcing some stuff is possible but add a layer of complexity by coordinating people , the more you can avoid the best it is IMO.
What you need first is a good portfolio that shows what the project could be. It will be your main weapon to get artists on board and financial support .
For funding strategies you can rely on crowdfunding or find a producer that can help find money to develop your project. It’s quite uncommon that producers put their money on the table to make a project. Generally they try to sell it to TV channels before it’s done, there are also some financial support from institutions like this one : https://ec.europa.eu/programmes/creative-europe/media_en
Anyway you’ll need a really strong portfolio to show people that your project is worth investing compared to all the projects available. It’s really an art in itself and that portfolio should answer as quick as possible what is the story / genre, the target (pre-school, adult), in what kind of financial scale does the project fit ( is it a 100 million blockbuster movie or a 5Million low-budget movie).
All that need to be answered visually as quick as possible because people generally don’t have time…
You can look at his video on producting short films, it can be a good example of indie short film with professional output : https://www.youtube.com/user/LucasMartell/playlists (production series) .
