This film is being made to raise awareness on post-pregnancy life woman experience upon returning to the workplace. It will be submitted to festivals. Participants are also welcome to share the film on their social media sites as long as credit is given.
The role requires someone mature who can depict emotion and vulnerability in their voice whilst at the same time, understand the essence of motherhood. Below is a mini description of the film.
The film will explore how a woman life is affected after giving birth: How it affects her day to day life, her feelings of being singles out, ignored in the work place and how isolating it can feel. The film will be animated so the emotions must be portrayed with your voice. There will be several roles involved for this.
Estimated time: 2-3 hours depending on role
Unpaid – this is a collaboration opportunity - Indie film - no/low budget - time required varies on the role and screen time. I would encourage rehearsals if you are comfortable and happy (done online) and I will provide materials to assist all.
Collaborations should create mutual benefit and are usually amateur, student or 'Time for Print' projects.
