Looking for a team of CGI Animators for a 10min film Misread - Bournemouth

Casting complete. Applications are now closed.

I am a 3rd year Television Production student looking for some animation help on my final film. I am willing to pay people or do some photography/film work for them in exchange for their time.

I am looking for a team of people that have the ability to create simple cgi faces and place them onto the stopmotion characters in my film.
They need to lip sink the voice overs and have simple facial expressions.
I imagine them to just be plain black linear designs, only moving the eyebrows, eyes and mouth.

I have also made a poorly put together tester which will give you a slight idea of what im going for. The voice is mine and will not be in the real film, colour correction has gone a bit mental and the cgi faces have not been added.

Lastly, this is a short test of what my course mate tried out for the cgi face. I would like it to be a little more expressive than this but this is the same kinda thing im looking for.

I am pushed for time, due to some major problems. I intend to finish filming before May and then would have 2 weeks for editing and post production.

My final deadline is the 21st of May but i would need the cgi faces completed before the 16th May so i can put everything together.

I have to fund this project myself, but i am happy talking about payment depending on how much of the job you are willing to take on.

All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Jet Laser - main character

Jet is the main paper/origami character in this story and is quite possibly the biggest job of the film. He has the most lines and will need to be full of expression for an audience to fall in love with him.

He will need to lip sink the pre-recorded voice over

He uses a mixture of stopmotion and live-action to get around the story of the film, an example of this can be seen in the short tester i made (link above).

Anyone from Bournemouth, United Kingdom

Brian - Part of Jet's main group of friends

Brian is the another paper/origami character in this story and is the bigger bulkier character of the gang. His character speaks in a heavy 'action genre' accent but has a soft sweet moment towards the end of the film.

He will need to lip sink the pre-recorded voice over

He uses a mixture of stopmotion and live-action to get around the story of the film, an example of this can be seen in the short tester i made (link above).

Anyone from Bournemouth, United Kingdom

Calli - The only girl in Jet's group of friends

Calli (calligraphy) is the female paper/origami character in this story and will need to have more feminine feature even though she is a 'tough cookie'

She will need to lip sink the pre-recorded voice over

She uses a mixture of stopmotion and live-action to get around the story of the film, an example of this can be seen in the short tester i made (link above).

Anyone from Bournemouth, United Kingdom

Skribble - Third member of Jet's group of friends.

Skribble is the mascot paper/origami character in this story but is a 'silent film' and therefore doest speak throughout the film. He mainly uses stopmotion actions to explain what he wants to say which means his face must equally be as expressive.

This character will not need to lip-sink a voice over.

He also uses a mixture of stopmotion and live-action to get around the story of the film, an example of this can be seen in the short tester i made (link above).

Anyone from Bournemouth, United Kingdom

The Goldens #1 #2 & #3

These are three paper/origami characters that the gang come across during their journey.
This would only be one job as they only have about 4/5 lines between them and there is very little movement involved.

They will still need to be lip-sinked to the pre-recorded voice over

They uses a mixture of stopmotion and live-action in only one scene, an example of this can be seen in the short tester i made (link above).
