Titmouse Seeks Animators for Reality Series

Hollywood-based animation studio Titmouse is seeking animators with ideas for short films to take part in a reality-style competition TV series titled 7200 Frames.

The series, which takes its title from the number of frames needed to make five minutes of animation, will fully fund and document the creation of three animated short films.

Candidates must be able to draw, animate and direct a five-minute animated film and be able to commit to a production schedule of four to six weeks.

Interviews for the show will be held this summer in Los Angeles and at Comic-Con International in San Diego, where artists will pitch their ideas to a panel of judges aboard a yacht docked near the convention center.

To apply, animators should upload a video no longer than five minutes of them pitching their idea to YouTube and then email a link to the video to [email protected]

Twelve animators will be selected for the series, with three films going into production.

Full details can be found at www.7200frames.com and the deadline to submit is July 3.
