Loo­king for a Dra­wing Artist/​​Sketching enthu­si­ast – For dra­wings that will act as Short Film Props

Are you unsett­led by the speed at which AI is deve­lo­ping and the thre­ats it poses towards art? Does this make you want to stand up against it or make some­thing that speaks to the­se fee­lings for future gene­ra­ti­ons to look back on? One last dance? Okay, that last sen­tence was a tad apo­ca­lyp­tic, but hear me out.

We’re curr­ent­ly working on a high­ly expe­ri­men­tal short fic­tion film that most­ly focu­ses on AI and how frightful­ly fast chan­ges are taking place.

Why does this pro­ject have poten­ti­al?
We belie­ve this film can do very well in the top-tier film fes­ti­val cir­cuit due to its uni­que approach to the topic of AI and AI art. As you pro­ba­b­ly know this topic is very hot curr­ent­ly and fes­ti­vals don’t exact­ly know how to bring this to light due to the copy­right and moral ques­ti­ons that are asso­cia­ted with most con­tent that is about or crea­ted by soft­ware that crea­tes AI art.

Loo­king for:
freelancer/​student/​person who’s good at drawing/​painting/​sketching and would like to make sket­ches that will be brought into a cyber­punk 3d ani­ma­ti­on sequence as props, and in so doing help us with the world-buil­ding. It’s most­ly things like sti­cky notes, and if pos­si­ble fly­ers and sti­ckers and fake logos. But we’re pret­ty fle­xi­ble in terms of what we’re loo­king for exact­ly as the­re are not many gui­de­lines for this and we can work with mul­ti­ple peo­p­le to crea­te the­se assets. The work can be done remo­te­ly and as long as you have a modern smart­phone your work should be able to be sent through email.

This will be cre­di­ted as such:

Assets crea­ted by:
‑full name of per­son who crea­ted assets.
‑full name of per­son who crea­ted assets.
‑full name of per­son who crea­ted assets.

Sci­ence fic­tion.

To screen it at top-tier film fes­ti­vals around the world. Our main pre­mie­re goals are the Venice Film Fes­ti­val and the Locar­no Inter­na­tio­nal Film Fes­ti­val. We’re curr­ent­ly aiming to have the film finis­hed befo­re mid-April. Ide­al­ly spea­king we’d have your work done a decent amount of time befo­re the dead­line sin­ce after the ani­ma­ti­on sequence is done we’ll still need to do final tou­ch­es, such as sound design/​credits/​and even crea­ting press mate­ri­als such as a trai­ler. So ide­al­ly we’d work with you on this in the next two weeks.

Unfort­u­na­te­ly due to the speed at which AI is deve­lo­ping we have to move quick­ly and were not able to rai­se funds. We are all working on this for free based on our love for the pro­ject and/​or belief in its poten­ti­al and importance.

What’s in it for you?
To join us in making art about this uni­que cross­road in huma­ni­ty and AI art. It may sound chee­sy, but this is a cra­zy time to be ali­ve and a cra­zier time to be an artist.

If you’re inte­res­ted in pos­si­bly joi­ning us on this pro­ject, we will sche­du­le a pitch mee­ting to dis­cuss what makes our approach to this pro­ject so uni­que and show­ca­se our rough cut to you, in order for you to assess if this pro­ject is worth your time.

This pro­ject will not uti­li­se AI and we will not allow this pro­ject to be used to crea­te AI-gene­ra­ted art in so far as it is human­ly pos­si­ble.
