Are you interested in developing your art department skills and connections through volunteering on student film projects? Then we could be perfect for you!
We are looking for volunteer art department assistants for our graduation animation film, ‘Other Half’.
The story follows Ren, a 19 year old being living in a world where once you find your soulmate, the two of you merge to become one. Lonely, and desperate to find his other half, he sets off on a Greek myth- inspired adventure to find wholeness at last.
‘Other Half’ (WT) is a multiplane animation that combines various techniques and styles in both the sets and the character animation. 3D set pieces, forced perspective, and the use of various materials including wax, plasticine and expanding foam will all be used to create a unique, otherworldly environment that sets the scene for our unlikely hero to embark upon his quest.
Project: Other Half
Contact: Production Designer, Eva Calland-Waller
Main locations: National Film and Television School, Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire
Dates: 15th June-17th July
Jobs will include building and dressing a number of sets and props, and setting up the set pieces with the production designer ready to be animated. There will be the opportunity to contribute to some aspects of the design as certain elements of the set building process will be intuitive, allowing moments of creative freedom during their construction. There will also be the opportunity to see firsthand the multiplane animation process, and learn exactly how an animation film can be made.
