ABOUT THE PROJECT: Seeking to fill two roles for an upcoming short fan film project. After the success of our video game feature film Livescream, we’re now tackling a video game fan film to reach some new fans. This film is based in the world of Detroit: Become Human, but you don’t need any familiarity with the game to apply. When complete, this will mostly be a web exclusive for our YouTube channel, but we’ll be submitting it to a few genre-friendly festivals as well.

COMPENSATION: $150/12hr for one day of shooting. Will of course include three meals, copy of the film, and credit on both IMDB and in the film.
