I'll do it,........ Just Kidding, Testosteronman is absolutely correct. That rate is just not reasonable, even for barely detailed storyboards! I'm not trying to insult your job offer, it just isn't reasonable for such a large project.
local artists here are filled with contract designs. I know its not the "best" rate. Granted, while working with the movie studio we're on a tight budget and can only hope for the best. We have also taken into account that the artist will want exposure and they would have that included in the DVD concept package that the studio will put together before presentation to licencee's. If all goes well, I'd be working with that artist on a new and more cofortable contract for a sequel. Thanks for taking the time.
