Film project looking for student animators - paid

Postby Charles » Tue Oct 02, 2012 8:43 am

Ann Raziel is a Writer/Director who has recently completed production on an indie feature film. The film includes two main characters sharing stories from their lives, which will be animated. For example, the female lead tells a story about her grandmother’s attic, which is haunted. As she tells her story, she becomes the narrator - and the story comes alive through animation.

Ann describes the film as a very charming, fun, romantic comedy. It stars Walter Perez (Fame/Castle/Friday Night Lights) and Nicole Hayden (How I Met Your Mother/CSI).

Ann is looking for student animators to work on this project. She is paying a stipend of $500 for each animation. There are 4 altogether.

Ann knows this is low but that is what her budget will allow. She's hoping to find students or animators that are starting out - who would like to have work in a lovely film that will definitely go to festivals, etc. Each animation is about 75 seconds long. She hopes to keep them simple. There is no dialogue. They all require different styles.
She's created a rough cut of two stories with very rudimentary storyboards to give a better reference for what she's looking for and will send them to interested parties.

Ann would be glad to answer any questions or discuss her project in more detail.
