I make 2D stick figure animations that take place on a desktop screen. They are comedic, action packed, dramatic, simple, yet very very intricate at times. There is no dialogue, only gestures. Recently most of my animations have been Minecraft themed. I release one video per month, and each of my videos receives 10 million+ views, some receiving 50 and 100 million views. I do all of my animations using Adobe Animate CC.
I am looking for an animator to help me lead my team of freelance animators - I currently have 9. They are spread out around the world. All of them are very talented, but none are quite ready to act in a leadership role or work on a part time schedule, putting in several hours per day. With someone to help me lead the team, I hope to increase our production rate and grow our audience.
