** If animation doesn't play, just hit F5 and it should play**

Found this lurking in a forgotten folder on my laptop.

Back when I was pitching the show "My Friend Rabbit", the clients were only interested if they could be shown what the characters could look like when they moved. So I loaded up flash, and animated this on the spot using my Cintiq in just an hour. They loved it, and this clip pretty much sold the show. Now, the show was animated in ToonBOOM Harmony, but this flash clip is worth posting because it sold the show. Sentimental value. Heh..

Hand drawn animation, Flash 8, using WACOM Cintiq 21UX.

Amazing! I'm pretty sure you hear that constantly but still! What program do you prefer?

Heh..  Thanks!  Personally I prefer to work in Toon BOOM Harmony.  I know there are loads of die-hard Flash users out there who would argue with me till they're blue in the face, but the simple fact that Harmony is a dedicated production tool, and Flash is still a web development tool makes all the differences in the world.  Those who dedicate themselves to at least trying to learn ToonBOOM quickly learn exactly what I mean.

Pricing for ToonBOOM Harmony can vary because it's production software, and is usually bought in bulk.  As in studios will buy 15-30 licenses in one shot which they can negotiate if they're buying a lot of seats or upgrading from previous versions.  But in general, you CAN buy a single user license, and I believe the price is around $2000 if I'm not mistaken.  Version 11 is about to be released and that comes in 2 flavours, studio and freelance.  The Freelance version is rumoured to be a bit cheaper as it's meant to be for single users freelancing for larger studios.  I don't yet have any newer info on that.  I'm currently using version 10.3

Wow! I thought it'd be a lot higher than that for one license. XD Thank you for telling me!

Hah, thanks! Yup, I was series concept developer, straight through to animation director.  I developed the look, the animation style, the characters, concept for the show, and directed animation after the show was picked up and put into production.  It was a super fun project, and I'm extremely proud of it.  I'm quite sad we only lasted 17 episodes though.

This is very fluid animation. I can see why this sold the show.
Good job. I Hope traditional animation can make a comeback, I miss it...

HOLY MOLY! My friends and I have decided to begin working on an animated series. I got here because I was watching a tutorial video, I decided to follow you because I thought you might be some one to consider hiring in the future. Our show happens to be centered around a white rabbit and her friends! You might just be the animator we're looking for. You interested? Profit sharing in the future, no money right now as we just got started 3 days ago, but we've already spent hours talking about it and started a website section to collaborate and plan on. 

Think it over. 

Our backgrounds & roles as they relate to this project:
Myself: A Startup Business Growth Consultant, Project manager.
The Girls: Voices, ideas, episode scripting.

Aloha brother,

"Profit sharing in the future, no money right now as we just got started 3 days ago, but we've already spent hours talking about it and started a website section to collaborate and plan on."

This... doesn't sound very promising.  You want FREE work?  Unless someone is a student, I can't foresee anyone taking you up on this offer from an unknown business, for an unknown person/crew of people.  Rather shifty sounding, actually.

Besides the fact that you didn't properly introduce yourself, provide a link to whatever you've already established, or even sent this as a private message, this is NOT how you go about recruiting industry professionals.  We may love what we do, but doing it for free is another story.  Promising shares down the road isn't convincing enough, either.  I like your enthusiasm, but it's clear to me that you don't quite grasp what it takes to pitch and produce your own series.

Yes this is what Stephen Silver (Character Designer) preach every day. Don't work for free. Too bad a lot of companies are trying to use us artist, because they think we just happy to get "exposure" I'm glad you told him it's not right Daemonysh :)

Exactly!  I get more than a little hot under the collar about this sort of thing, but I also understand that some people might not even realise what it is they're asking for or appreciate that animation is like any other profession.  I'm sure someone wouldn't ask a professional architect to design them a house for free and then expect the builders to work at it for free either.  Doing something for family or close friends for nothing is a completely different matter.  Strangers shouldn't expect the same.

I agree. It's so sad that a lot of people don't know how much a picture actually cost as we constantly have access to picture via internet and such.
People expect free art from me but I won't do that anymore. I truly must educate myself more in this matter especially when it comes to Graphic Design.
Do you know any good books or website for this?
