I am a student who is currently trying to start a small studio in Boston. We are now operating under the title, Chinchilla Warfare Studios and have just begun our first project, code name: "Shadow Moons."
Although that may sound secretive and pretty stellar, it really may not be as crazy as it seems. The project we are working on is a for the Star Wars Fan Film awards in June. It will be a featurette, if all goes well, and hopefully worth the effort put forth by taking home some award. The project is rather last minute, yes, but achievable. The script is written and actors have been selected, and filming will begin next week!
The harsh underlying truth of my situation is my team, while very knowledgeable in video editing, grading and production, has little real knowledge on creating special effects as seen in "the movies." The work we can accomplish may not be enough to finish the film in time, or to the scale, which we desire.
This is a plea for any artist willing to help with some 3d environment construction, character animation, matte painting, modeling, rotoscoping, rendering and/or any other type of work we may need to make this film a success. I hate to say it, but we ourselves are trying to fundraise just enough to support our habits, so paying you is probably not an option... but I can assure anyone willing to help with this will find it to be a worthwhile and fun endeavor.
Work will not be too challenging and any skills you have at all are more than appreciated. Respond if you're interested or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org
