Contest Brief

I am currently in post-production on a film I shot called Karma and in need of VFX for the film. There are a few shots I am looking to have VFX on (and will hold multiple contests for this - one is already live right now) and this is one important set of shots revolving around a face which gives rise to the monster beneath.

I have attached an ungraded clip of shots where the VFX is used.

The VFX I am looking for is in the realm of fantasy - we are looking at the world from the point of view of a mentally unstable individual who sees someone's face (the male actor) turn into a monster.

I have attached a video file showing the 5 moments where it is hinted:

Shot 1 - when the actor looks at us and speaks his face becomes terrifying for the rest of the shot.

Shot 2 - same scene, the actor's face is still a monster for that first second (he then looks away so we won't need vfx anymore).

Shot 3 - The actor's face flashes into that of a monster then returns to normal before he starts kicking us. (It lasts about 1 second, if not less)

Shot 4 - When the actor turns away his face becomes a monster once more.

Shot 5 - when the actor's face goes out of focus his face becomes a monster for the rest of the scene.

The key point here is all these shots are being seen from the point-of-view of an unstable person, so that monster element is in the realm of fantasy but he still looks human to some extent.

Examples of other films for visual references can be seen here:

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: [login to view URL] (good example)

Natural Born Killers: [login to view URL]

If you have a different approach I am open to them as I want you to bring your creative side out.

Film has not been graded yet so final output should not be seared into the footage (i.e. I want to lay your VFX work on the final shot we have once it has been graded).

The winner will also receive a credit in the movie.

Contest is guaranteed so cash prize will be given, although I reserve the right not to give a film credit if the shot is not used (depending on the quality of entries although this has never been an issue).

If you have any questions at all please let me know and I look forward to seeing your entries.

      That is correct (and most last less than a second) as well as a film credit.

    Do you mean warping the face or adding actual textures?

      Hi, it is warping the face - we see him as normal at first then show him becoming a monster as part of this delusion.
