Animation Notes on the Project:Animation- making a short film for reference acting so animators can see the vision. basically helping animators understand the how the performance on animation needs to be- solely a reference tool for animation department. This means the talent’s filmed portion is for reference only to help the animators in designing the film.
NON UNION Project

1) Video reference shoot of actors that animation will use as a guide:

-Jesus. Man, early 30’s
– Mature/old man character, 50 to 60
– Mature/ old woman character, 50 to 60
*** Notes:Ethnicity and looks don’t matter.. It is truly all about acting.
Even though the characters have a beard, this is not a requirement.
It is more based on facial acting and expressions.
Jesus actor doesn’t have to look like Jesus but would be a bonus if they did.
Mary roles could be two different actresses, depends on the talent’s ability and voice etc.
