unladylike co. is seeking an animator (2D and/or Rotoscope) for a two-to-three-week contract working on their film/theatre hybrid bad eggs.
Start date: Aug. 16, 2021
End date: TBD
Scope of work: We are looking to incorporate animation into the scenes that are magical and break away from reality. The animation would be added on top of the live action footage. These scenes take up approximately one-third of the film, which is estimated to be 75 to 90 minutes in length.
bad eggs Synopsis: Persephone and Hades have been trying to have a baby for nearly a year with no luck. Growing anxious, Persephone decides to see the fertility doctor, Eve, who also happens to be her mother. Problem is, Eve hasn’t spoken to her since she eloped with Hades, and Persephone has debilitating panic attacks whenever she tries to leave the house. Her world crumbling around her, Persephone must discover who she really is, aside from being a wife and daughter. Through a feminist and darkly comedic lens, bad eggs explores the parallels between two women who ate “forbidden fruit”.
