Experienced Documentary Filmmaker Seeks Graphic/Video Designer

“Candypants” is the true story of the two men who invented edible underwear, and their 50-year romance.  I am looking for someone to take source material such as still photos and video and treat them to give a distinct visual look.

The initial work is for a film trailer and would be limited in scope.  Start date roughly Nov. 6.  I will pay, amount subject to the amount of work done, keeping in mind that the budget is limited.  There is the possibility of more work once the film is funded.
