Hire me for your next project!
Film and Animation are my specialties. Do you want to make your next music video, commercial, or movie dream sequence spectacularly weird? If you want to collaborate and create something wonderful together, you came to the right place!
I can help your business or project when it comes to an original vision.
If you have any questions about my process or the services I offer, please contact me for more details.
My name is Josh Funk and I love fantasy, horror, likable monsters, absurd scenarios, and mixing the bizarre and scary with a little humor. These are the things I’m drawn to in both my films and illustrations. When I was a kid it was ok to create anything my imagination could come up with… I don’t see why I should stop now.
Over the years I have been fortunate enough to create music, illustrations, and films. All of these gave me invaluable insight into the creative process that I still use to this day. Some of my favorite collaborations include the instructional Magic Graphic Novel Sinful:A Graphic Novel (2009) for Wayne Houchin (Discovery Channel Host of "Breaking Magic"), and most recently the award winning live-action/stop-motion, sci-fi short film The Spaceman.
Creating is my passion and I look forward to every opportunity that awaits me. If you have a project you'd love to collaborate with together... please let me know.
HOW DOES YOUR ANIMATION PROCESS WORK?
Every project is a little different but it always starts out the same way… with an idea. You and I will decide what is best for your project, I’ll come up with solutions to help you reach and hopefully exceed those goals. My animations are very time intensive. The length and style of your project will determine how long this could take. I specialize in stop-motion animation and build all of my sets, props, and puppets. If more advanced puppet fabrication is required, I have a great team that will bring your character to life.
I like to create a story outline along with some rough storyboard sketches that cover the major points in your video. However, I like to leave room for improvisation and inspiration. If it is a significant change, I will check with you first.
If your budget allows for it we can create elaborate puppets and props. If it doesn’t, there are still some surprising things we can do with paper, cardboard, and found objects. I often mix practical puppets, props, and backgrounds with computer generated enhancements such as fire, explosions, and smoke. I also create digital matte paintings in Photoshop when needed.
Need music? I can also provide sound effects and original music for your film/animation.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO HIRE YOU?
Every project is different and there are many factors to determine how much it will cost to finish your animation or illustration.
First - Request a Quote and tell me all of the details of your project. I will get back to you within 24 hours.
Once we agree on the specifics that fit your budget and deadline, I will need a simple contract signed and 50% deposit before starting.
If during the process you need revisions that are outside of our estimated and agreed upon costs, they will be charged in the final invoice. My goal is for you to be extremely happy with what we come up with.
I look forward to working with you soon!
