Animation : I need advice by Craig D Griffiths

Go to and find some animators, or go to your local art school and place ads and let them know what you need. You can try craigslist as well. Flash is very easy to use. But there is other software out there. Maybe have someone do some storyboarding for you so you can see what your concepts look like. Hope this helps.

I did a write up on some of the options a while back, but I'm sure there have been more to enter the space since. Even Amazon Studios has a free story board tool now. Here's what I found a while ago:
