US-based VFX Consultant to China
Posted 7-08-2012, wanted
Hongdian Film Production Co., Ltd. (known as \"Red Dot\") seeks to
connect to established and up-and-coming experts in post production
and visual special effects who may be interested in paid advisory
roles to help them build a world-class, one-stop facility, to attract
such projects globally.
Their technical facilities are world-class (see English-language Word doc at
www.recruiting-online.com/red-dot/ for more specifics on the
equipment/capabilities and links to the company) and this is a
well-supported venture: Red Dot is housed by Hengdian World Studios
(www.hengdianworld.com), the world\'s largest film studio
(en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hengdian_World_Studios), responsible for
hundreds of films and television series since its creation in the
They seek to identify several people (or small teams) with appropriate
Hollywood credits (country of citizenship not a factor) who would be
open to consulting in a mostly virtual capacity, with a limited number
of days on-site spread during mutually convenient periods during the
year, in both R&D and practical perspectives.
Hengdian is the town dubbed by Hollywood Reporter as the \"Hollywood of
the East.\" Located in the culturally-rich Dongyang metro area in
Zhejiang Province, a bit south of Shanghai, Red Dot would also
optionally welcome having you tour their world-class facilities to
learn more about what they are doing (and vice-versa). However, any
get-to-know interviews can also be done virtually.
Since their websites are in Chinese, to save you the trouble of using
a tool like Google Translate, I have taken the liberty of uploading an
English-language overview Word doc with much of the
information from the new site specifically about Red Dot that you can read at
Though I am not able to accept agency candidates or do splits (I am
doing this as a favor for my cousin), the company itself is stable and
this is a well-funded initiative. All accepted participants\' expenses
will be covered in addition to USA-competitive compensation for
consultants of this nature. It should be an exciting opportunity for
those interested in getting in on the ground floor - though they are
obviously already beyond phase 1!
However, I am on a tight deadline for this initiative, so I would
appreciate your reviewing the information at
www.recruiting-online.com/red-dot/ in order to obtain recommendations
of qualified individuals you feel might be interested in this
opportunity, and answer any basic questions this week.
