$$$ Need Background Artists for Animation $$$

2013-03-08 00:00:42 by EKublai


My name is Ben Smith and I am a Senior Film Major at Wesleyan University. I am working on a 2D, flash-animated thesis film. Production has been underway on it for months, but I've just entered "crunch-time on it." So I'm seeking last-minute (and paid) help on making sure this film is completed by the April 12th deadline.
Description of the project: Based on a short story I wrote Sophomore year, this film is called "Pearly Whites."
It is a dark comedy about a dentist who steals teeth from his patient in order to implant them into his son, who was born and grew up without teeth.
Here is a rough cut of it on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S59uAs27TK8
This should give you an idea of the style you would be working in. Ideally, you would design specific backgrounds in a similar style and up to the detail standards of the better-looking backgrounds demonstrated in the first two minutes of the movie.
Again, this is a paid position. Please contact me and direct me to your portfolio. If you are interested or have further questions please contact me ASAP. I would like to set up an interview as quickly possible in the hopes that we could start as quickly as possible.

I really enjoyed reading this story in the anthology.

EKublai responds:

The film is quite different from the story you read.

its hard to tell what sort of style backgrounds are in it, i mean theres one style in most scenes and then there's that super detailed outside scene. April 12th is a pretty aggressive deadline if thats the level of detail youre aiming for?

(Updated ) EKublai responds:

I have quite a few background artists already (7or 8 volunteers). I generally want to save the super-detailed for extreme long shots.

I have conceded that there will be a lack of consistency in the backgrounds, and I'm okay with that since in the context of the student film, it really just adds personality.

And yes... it's super aggressive.
