ALI 1978: THE BUTTERFLY
"It's 1978. The once perfect speciman with the gifted tongue, Muhammad Ali, now moves slower, talks slower and often mumbles. He feigns indifference publicly but whispers of his slow demise ring loud. After losing his title to an unheralded Leon Spinks, Ali must find a way to defeat both Spinks and nature's cruel fate."
Set/Production designer- The film is a period piece on a low budget film in a majority of black owned locations in 1978. So thorough research will be necessary. There also are a few abstract like scenes that truly allow for you to display your artistic imprint on those particular scenes. Unfortunately we're working with a $50,000 budget. But we have a great script, a producer who had a short in Sundance 2 years ago (searching for one more accomplished producer), a tremendous assistant director and a load of extremely talented, experienced actors. After hiring you or simultaneously we are putting a huge emphasis on hiring a great cinematographer. Again we have budgeted $300/day for you on a 10 day shoot. There's also a $2000 budget for the set design department.
Please submit your resume, examples of your work and perhaps a little about you. Assembling a team/crew of passionate artists who are or continue to seek to master their craft. Thrilled to be making my first feature film on the great Muhammad Ali. My innovative writing style brings a new flavor to this story, and to filmmaking as a whole.
*To give you an idea of the type of work that I do, I've posted my previous work. These are all essentially no budget projects with no set designer etc. **Oh, again with the state of things right now, our thoughts are that about 2 months after people are allowed to go into production again we would get started.
