Yarışma Özeti

Hi, everybody. I'm co-producing an indie kids' TV show this fall/winter, and I'm looking for some brief interludes to include between various skits and music videos and such.

These would normally be in the range of 5-10 seconds, though shorter or longer segments could work, too, depending on the idea. It must use the character of Eric Herman (see attached images) as the subject, but what he does in your interlude is up to your creativity and imagination. It could be a simple pratfall, or waterskiing behind a shark, or playing guitar in a funny way, or whatever. If you really need ideas, I can give you some, but part of what I'm looking for here is someone who has a creative sense of animation and some good ideas, so I'd rather you come up with something with your own style and sense of creativity. If it's funny or clever or cute in some way, that's probably what I'm looking for. It just needs to work as a self-contained 5-10 second (or so) piece that can be transitioned into something else.

By the way, you do not need to try to replicate the look in the attached pictures... Make your own version of Eric Herman, as long as he has the same basic characteristics (blue shirt, yellow tie, khaki pants, beard, etc.). Also, when I say this is a kids' show, this is NOT something "cutesy" with rainbows and fluffy animals... It's definitely a little more edgy and comedy oriented, meant for elementary aged kids (5-10), and not for babies or toddlers. Think Monty Python but for 8 year-olds. I would recommend looking up "Eric Herman" on YouTube for examples of the visual and humor style that I typically use, especially with videos like "Ants in Your Pants #99," "Steve the Superhero," and "Blackbeard, Bluebeard and Redbeard."

I'm awarding one winner, but beyond that I may look to hire that person (or someone else who submitted) to do a series of these kind of interludes for the show. And even if you aren't the winner, I might offer to buy the use of what you create here if I like an idea(s), or hire you for some other animated or graphical segments of the show. I'm definitely looking to create relationships with talented people to draw on.

Any questions, please ask. Have fun!

      Hi there. I liked the idea a lot but it is a little rougher in look and animation than I was looking for. Thanks for submitting!

      Hi there. It's a little simpler of an idea than I was hoping for. There's something odd about how the legs look. Thanks for the submission, though. I really appreciate it.

    #4 and #5: Both great entries! Not sure I'd be able to use the risque woman thing as it is... probably a bit too much leg for a kids' TV show, you know? But I love the idea, and put a longer skirt on her and it would work great. The ghost thing is very unexpected and clever. A bit bizarre with the guitar coming out of its mouth, but I like it.

    About entry 2... Decent for what it is, but not eligible based on the contest criteria: "Make your own version of Eric Herman, as long as he has the same basic characteristics (blue shirt, yellow tie, khaki pants, beard, etc.)." If you can remake it with the yellow tie and khaki pants, please resubmit. Would also like to see something more interesting than just standing and playing guitar.

      Don't worry I'm gonna be the third one to post my entry. It's just that not many people like to animate or are good on it, also this takes time to do something good and so, only passionate people worth it :)

    is your show going to be regional or national. also should we supply the music, or you will put your own.

      The show will initially be a YouTube series... so, international. This will essentially be a "demo," of sorts, that we'll use to pitch to some networks. But our YouTube views are nearly 50 million, so it will reach a pretty good audience, regardless.

      Music and sound FX are not necessary for this, but if you have an idea for that, or particular sounds that go along with your segment, then go ahead and include them. Music/sound may end up being replaced later, but if you can help serve your idea with sound, then you might as well.

    what should the resolution of the video be.

      Most of the footage is being shot in HD (1080), so ideally the animation would compare to that.
