Lloyd Kaufman’s Troma Entertainment just announced that if you are an aspiring special effects artist, then you should consider Return to Class of Nuke ‘Em High as your opportunity to showcase your special effects work. Artists are being asked to submit sub-humanoid, mutant, creature-effects masks, body parts or make up appliances to be considered for use in the upcoming Troma film. The filmmakers say nothing is too outrageous. This is your chance for your art to be seen by millions of people all over the world.
Troma is also looking for a special effects artist to build a duck monster, inspired by the illustration below. For additional information, or to send samples, reels and resumes, email NukeEmHighSPFX@gmail.com.
In Troma’s Lloyd Kaufman-directed Return to Class of Nuke ‘Em High, Lauren and Chrissy not only have to battle the horrors of high school, but also a diabolical plot by Tromorganic Farms to turn their classmates into mutated sub-humanoids.
