Post REQ: Minecraft Rig for maya

I am making a minecraft music video in maya and I need to have a rig to help me. If you can, you will earn yourself a spot in the credits. The rig should include the following:


All of the textures
Fire
Torches & particles
Person (with facial expressions)
short explanation

For an example of what I would like please watch the following video (not by me)

Revenge - Behind the Scenes - YouTube

So one would get to build a set and character, texture them both, do some particle dynamics and then rig the character and write you an explanation of how to use everything. What exactly would you be doing? Just animating? who would light, render and comp it?
Also what is Minecraft? is it all that low poly style?

Yes, that is indeed a tonne of work for not a lot of thanks. It's quite a request from anyone, especially from a person that only has one post here.

Also, I'm not sure you know the meaning of "rig", as you have included particles in it. (Fire is also particles by the way)

You could export it via FBX to Maya.
