Award-Winning filmmaker & animator, running MLC Studios based in Greece where it focuses on a combination of cinematic style and experienced motion design. imdb.com/name/nm_Phone details not available. Sign in: https://www.twine.net/signin_ 🏆 Taking my first steps in the world of sketching and comics, I have gained a lot of experience over the years on how to attribute the still image properly. But my interest was drawn to animation, where a fascinating world of creativity and aesthetics unfolded. My first completed animation attempt was awarded by Olympia International Film Festival in 2004 as the best animated short film. In 2009 I was also nominated for Digital Alexander and awarded the 2nd DigidalWave prize in Thessaloniki International Film Festival for my short film "The Box". But the trophies are not the goal and the journey of learning new techniques and constantly evolving is much more exciting. So after I graduate from my animation school in 2010 I worked professionally in many projects with such success, which made me a more experienced and efficient creator. To this day, my passion for the moving picture, through a combination of filmmaking techniques and computer graphics, is something that undoubtedly characterizes me in quality, elegance and aesthetic, capturing the truly unique in it. Tools I Use: Photoshop (Image Processing) Illustrator (Vector Processing) 3DS Max (3D Modeling & 3D Animation) Pheonix FD (Liquid Simulations) Fume FX (Smoke & Fire Simulations) Rayfire (Geometry Fracture & Dynamics) V-Ray (Rendering) PFTrack (3D Tracking) Mocha Pro (Planar Tracking) After Effects (Motion Design & Post Production) Nuke (Compositing) Audition (Audio Processing) Premiere (Editing & Color Grading) Portfolio: behance.net/passosapostolos

Stefanos is a professional animator, illustrator and art director. Tried everything from clay sculpting to stop-motion animation and game design but he is still extremely thirsty to create. With a continuously evolving love for animation and digital arts has worked for film, television and web media with companies all over the world for over 6 years. He is a perfectionist and always trying to make the best out of any project regardless the circumstances!

I am a 2D artist, animator and illustrator who graduated with a Master of Science in Animation and VFX from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design at the University of Dundee. Since completing my Master’s degree, I have worked for various animation companies, including Oddbleat, a multi-disciplinary studio in Athens, where I developed storyboards and animation for clients like Google and the Acropolis Museum. My Bachelor’s degree was in Communication and Mass Media, where I majored in television, advertising and marketing courses. In my current position, I am working as a freelance storyboard artist for Socialab advertising agency, translating scenarios for television briefs into storyboards. During my time at Oddbleat studio, I created concepts and storyboards for an interactive children’s game which is currently being developed for the Acropolis Museum. I am an advanced user of the Adobe Creative Suite, including Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Premiere, and InDesign, with elementary proficiency in Maya and Zbrush. During my professional career and academic studies, I have equally practised illustration, 2d animation and storyboard art but my most extensive experience has been in the field of concept/storyboard art. I would appreciate an opportunity to meet people and companies on Twine and become a beneficial part in great projects.

I am an artist from Greece, currently based in Bournemouth studying 3D Computer animation (MA). I am a graphic design graduate from Technological Educational Institute of Athens, but my real passion is 3D art and animation. I have a huge love about epic fantasy and wildlife, where I usually draw inspiration from.

Hi, I am motion graphic designer and animator based on Athens, Greece For a few years, I have been working with different positions, such as post-production, animator, freelancer, videographer I could be flexible with different types of art styles and specialized for After effects.

How To Shortlist An Animator

Shortlisting an animator can seem like a time-consuming task.

We’ve made it easy for you.

Here’s a quick overview of how to find an animator on Twine:

  1. Post up a job
  2. Wait for animation specialists to pitch to you
  3. Review your pitches and choose a candidate
  4. Agree your terms

Tips For Writing Your Job Description

Here’s an interesting statistic:

75% of the pitches for jobs online are from freelancers who are not qualified to do the work

Why?

Because the description doesn't clearly explain what the client wants, so freelancers pitch in hoping that the work might match their skill set.

On Twine, we manually vet all the pitches that a client receives to make sure you don’t have to spend hours filtering out unqualified freelancers.

But it’s still really important to make your brief stand out by being clear and concise.

Clearly-written job briefs allow animation experts to quickly scan your requirements and determine if they’re a good fit for your project before getting in touch.

When writing the animator’s job description, make sure to include the following:

  • Who you are
  • What you need (and why)
  • The size of your project
  • Your vision for the project
  • Examples of styles you like
  • Target audience
  • Budget
  • Deadline

Frequently Asked Questions
Why hire an animator ?

Here’s the deal:

With a market value of over 259 billion U.S. dollars, animation remains as one of the most popular and engaging mediums for connecting with an audience.

Since the industry’s inception with cartoon studios in the early 1900’s, animation is now at the core of many different sectors, including:

  • Web Design
  • Video Games
  • Marketing & Advertising
  • Social Media Content
  • Film

Although what animators do day-to-day has changed a lot over the last century, the impact of what animation can do for your business has not.

Don’t believe us? Read this stat:

Each day, 100 million internet users watch an online animated video.

And not only that! One minute of video is equal to 1.8 million words.

It’s no surprise then that 76% of marketers plan to increase their use of YouTube and video marketing next year.

How can animated video benefit my business?

Here’s another statistic:

Viewers retain 95% of a message when they watch it in a video, compared to 10% when reading it as text.

If you aren’t already using video as a core aspect of your marketing strategy, you should be!

But why animated video?

Here are the three main advantages of using animated video over traditional video content:

  • Stand out from your competitors

    Animation is friendly, futuristic and forward-thinking, setting you apart from the pack of talking head videos your competitors are using.

  • Keep it simple

    Animation turns complex ideas into an engaging narrative, making it easy for leads to understand how your product or service works.

  • Improve your SEO

    Google loves animated video due to its high-retention rate and evergreen nature. A high-quality animated video can significantly improve your presence on Google, making it easier for leads to find you.

What are the benefits of hiring a freelance animator?

Here are some of the biggest benefits of choosing a freelance animator through Twine over an animators agency:

  • Lower overhead costs

    This includes office space, company benefits, employee training and set working hours.

  • Experience

    Many professional animators will hone their craft at an animation studio before going it alone as a freelancer. This means that freelance animators are often the most experienced, efficient and professional specialists in the game.

  • Expertise

    If you’ve been wondering where to find animators that specialize in a particular niche of animation, the freelance market is for you! Freelance animators often dedicate themselves to particular animation commissions (such as explainer videos).

  • Flexibility

    Hiring an animation freelancer allows you to set your own hours and rates relative to the nature of your project. You can assign them work as and when it suits you without the hassle of a long-term contract.

What are you waiting for?

Post a job on Twine now and be matched with a wide range of high quality animators in a matter of hours. If you’ve got any questions then you can ask online animators and they’ll be happy to help you via the public questions feature.
