As the project manager of our animated film series, it is my responsibility (and pleasure) to scout and recruit the right mix of people who can assist with the successful creation of our animated film project by producing a number of effects needed for the series.

Some examples of the effects we will be in need of are as follows:

Fire
Blood spatter
Glow
Dream sequences
Static/ distort
Grunge
Smoke
Explosions
Broken glass
Bullet time
Burst shots (muzzle fire)
You may use stock images, so long as you are not violating copyright, or you may create your own.

FAQs

When does this job start and how long will production last?

As we are currently in the earliest stages of pre-production, the start date is currently TBD (to be determined). From the start date, we anticipate the series to run for 3 seasons but at this time we are looking to secure an effects specialist for the first season. If there is a mutual continued interest after Season 1, there will be potential for the sound effect specialist to stay on board for the production of Seasons 2 and 3.

How much work is needed?

There are many effects needed in addition to the effects mentioned above. Details will only be disclosed to qualifying candidates.

Is this a paying job?

Yes but not up front as we are following a crowd-funding campaign structure, which means there may be no guarantee of payment for works created. The production costs of this film series is anticipated to be fully funded by a crowd-funding campaign that will be launched on Kickstarter.com. (The campaign date is currently TBD). Compensation will only be provided if campaign funding goal is met. If our campaign funding goal is not met, effects specialist will retain all works created as unpaid portfolio pieces and no payment will be rendered. Further compensation and project details will only be discussed with qualifying candidates.

How to express interest or submit samples:

To express interest, please email your samples and a link to your digital portfolio to: nothingtolosemovie@gmail.com

In the subject line of your email please state your full name followed by “EFX Inquiry – CG Meetup”; it is very important that you attach your samples and/ or include a link to your digital portfolio or you will not get a response to your inquiry.
If your submission is suitable and approved, we will contact you directly to further discuss details of this project.
This is a remote, work from home position.

Sincerely,
Jose Rodriguez
Project Manager
