We’re seeking an awesome title artist to help tell a magical story! We mainly need opening and lower thirds titles that are clean but cinematic. There is some pay. We’re looking for a team player that wants to support the circus and help this film sparkle! 

Sound interesting? Send your resume and reel to whatsup@welcometoweird.com #circusislove
