News & Jobs & …

I’m working with a template in WP – and there’s no obvious way for me to implement a script.  So, for the time being, the jobs feed will reside on the right hand side of the page.  If you have a SPECIFIC NEED for someone, please feel free to post.

PLEASE POST ALL SPECIFIC JOB OFFERS BELOW

I’ll try to figure out what to do with the Facebook/MotionLA page too.

I’ve kept the RSS/Feed for each job widget to 5 of the latest posts.  I think the frequency is less than 5 per day, but whenever you check in, those will be the freshest.

    • I am working on a trailer for a documentary about an LAPD SuperCop.

      I am looking for a FILM NOIR style a la motion comic to support the historical accounts of the crimes, the felons and environments of the crime scenes. These are all factual. VERY interesting and descriptive moments and would be a fabulous representation of the animator’s work. I will be shooting interviews with detectives and our main Supercop.

      Here is the look I am thinking but open to your suggestions:

      Looking for about 1-3 minutes of motion comic noir style to support the narrative.

      Need all artwork, editing, motion for these pieces.
      Budget is $500 per each completed minute.

      This is a pitch project.

      We need a good attitude and someone that can hit deadlines and is open to direction.

      Please send link to your work and a small blurb about you and your contact email and cell.

      Thanks so much!
