I can't remove old posts, but to be timely and current...
Star Wars: The Forgotten, a full length feature fan film, needs help! Our website has plenty to show you and that speaks louder than any words I can post here:
We are looking for two major areas of expertise right now:
2. Modelers (rooms...virtual sets)
Compositors: I want to make a very important point right up front; the footage of this film will be very challenging. No, let me put it more blunt: this footage is a pain in the ass. There are no illusions that this is some cookie cutter, easy as pie project. I wish it was, but sadly, the advice we received on lighting our green screen sets was terrible, and we had no help on set to catch the problems.
However, what good is your talent if you don't challenge it? It is important for everyone to understand that this is not impossible. We have people completing amazing shots all the time. There are tricks and techniques you will learn to handle this footage, and in the long run, you will be a more dynamic and amazing Compositor because of it. You will be able to bring skill sets to any future employment that very few people have, and you’ll have the ability to do things they simply cannot. This makes you more valuable in the marketplace, and if you can make our footage look good (and you’re more than welcome to Demo Reel any of your work with us), then any employer would be a fool not to want you on their team.
Modelers: Since 80% of this film was fully green screen, we need modelers to build the rooms the actors are in. I prefer LightWave users, but will take any help I can get. Maya is the only software package that doesn't really work well with anyone else, so if you're a Maya user, we need you to not only model, light and texture the room, but create all the background plates that the Compositors will use. We cannot shift your work to someone else.
With this said, I hope to find people willing to accept the challenge, help a fan film succeed, and hopefully make some good friends along the way. Thank you.
