AKIRA Project - (Paid) Modeler/Texturer/Lighter wanted!


We are in the final stages of post-production of the Akira Project, a crowd-sourced live-action fan trailer based on the manga and anime ‘AKIRA’ by Katsuhiro Otomo. For more info: www.akira-project.com.

We are looking for talented VFX artists to help us complete the last CG shots for the production for an early 2014 release.

  • Modeler/Texturing/Lighting expert to work on Tetsuo’s monster scene. Ideally we also need a model for a jet fighter and an airplane carrier.
  • Compositor/Generalist
  • Particles effects (smoke, debris, fire, water)

This project was crowd-funded so our budget is very tight, but we received some additional funding lately and could pay between 100-250$CAD per shot, depending on its complexity. I know it’s not much, but it is what we can afford right now. :slight_smile:

Here is a teaser we made in summer 2012 for a grand budget of 0$: https://vimeo.com/48839674

Please get in touch with me at anh@akira-project.com if you want to be part of an exciting project!

Thanks for your time,
