Need Rigging for 3D Characters for Film


1 month ago


Thanks for your interest. Please review this project and message me with any questions. I'm hoping to find the right fit for rigging 3 characters. Looking for people who have the necessary technical skills and matching taste for cinema/ films/ storytelling.

Must like art! Must like films! (This is not a video game)

Purpose of film is to heal, inspire, and unite different people around the world. Influences include Aliens, Ex Machina, Lord of the Rings, Avatar, 5th Element, Donnie Darko, Star Wars, E.T, and Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Influences for genre include dark psychological thrillers/ surrealist/ poetic auteur films such as Psycho, Black Swan, American Psycho, The Game, Mulholland Drive, Blue Velvet, Eraserhead, Antichrist, Enter the Void, Persona, Fallen Angels, Orphee, Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind, Drive, and Videodrome.

Films with No Borders has been a client on Upwork since 2017 and has spent approx. $13k. We created this new account for this film only. Kit Cassim (Francis Ford Coppola Screenwriting Quarter-Finalist) is the multi-cultural actor/ director behind the feature-film Role Playing; a dark art house, psychological thriller about gender. Produced by Paull Cho (Sundance Festival) with Animation Supervisor Pete Polyakov (Matrix 4, Avatar 2, Road Max).

Role Playing was Filmed in 4k on an Alexa in New York. Role Playing is approx. 80% live-action and 20% 3D animation. The live action footage and most of the animation have been edited. We will screen the movie for film festivals and distributors with a sales agent in 2021 on both theater screens, tv screens, and smart phones.

A famous actor tries to get in touch with his feminine side to play a dancer in his next movie. He thinks his old friend is getting in the way and invites him to his house in the country to kill him. When he starts to realize that it might not be his friend but the voices inside his head, things become difficult...

Must work fast in collaboration with the Director to meet the deadline. Look good/ detailed for a BIG movie theater screen!


Dramatic, dark and realistic with a little bit of surrealism/ poetry. Cinematic!


We need all 3 characters rigged ASAP, in less than one week. If you can rig all the characters then great. If not, we will hire multiple people for this job. Looking ONLY for people who specialize in rigging. This must be your strength.

We might also need a Phoenix bird rigged afterward if the character gets approved.
