My name is Scott, and I'm currently working on a proof-of-concept short for a sci-fi comedy. It's in the vein of an R-rated GREMLINS or CRITTERS. The short will have a handful of vfx shots, featuring an insect-like alien.
I'm writing to see if there's anyone who would be interested in providing the vfx for this short. Our current plan is to have a practical puppet or prop, which would then be manipulated in post a la WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE. There is a budget behind the short, but being not for profit, it's in the indie range.
If this seems like it's in your purview, please get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be happy to send along the script or explain in more detail the creature and parameters of the shoot.
Have a good day!
