Patrick McColery is looking for animations to help tell the story of "The Remarkable Farkle McBride" a book by the actor John Lithgow which has been fully orchestrated for the symphony.
The performance includes the full Atlanta Symphony Orchestra in Symphony Hall at the Woodruff Arts Center. There will be two performances on Sunday, April 29th.
The story will be told with actors, puppets, music and animation. Patrick needs of 10 to 15 minutes of animation sequences which will be projected behind the orchestra. The style will be simple, construction paper cut-out stop-motion, but he is open to other ideas, and would very much like an animator who is a creative collaborator. Stipend will be provided. Complete animations needed by Monday, 4/23.
