Props Maker / Assistant Puppeteer required for experimental, feature-length art film. You will be working primarily as the assistant puppeteer / props maker. You will be working in a tight-knit art department alongside props makers, set designers, puppeteers, art directors, under the guidance of our key production designer. Your first priority will be to assist on the trailer that is being shot in London in a few weeks, followed by the main shoot later this year.

The style of the film is very much in the vain of 1970s bizarro, arty, horror movies; Ken Russell, Dario Argento, Federico Fellini. Plus there's also a touch of David Lynch & David Cronenberg, so this project would be of particular interest to those people who are fans of this type of esoteric cinema, as opposed to commercial Hollywood cinema.

We're offering catering, transport, accommodation, materials costs, footage for your showreel, IMDb credits, a generous back-end profit share and there's a chance of an upfront fee based on the success of our current film which is currently in post-production.This is a voluntary project; everybody involved is taking the same risk in that the rewards could be significant or could be minimal. If you are looking for secure, paid-work then this probably isn't the project for you. If you are looking for experience, meet other filmmakers, build up your credits etc, than this would be ideal for you. This is an ideal opportunity for a recent graduate or someone looking to move from shorts into feature films, and who like bizarro, European art films.

If interested kindly respond with a recent example of your work.
