Project Main Details

The Pit and the Pendulum 
I am a professional video editor and motion graphics artist looking to do my own personal project. I am abridging Edgar Allen Poe's "Pit and the Pendulum," and setting it to modern day visuals of torture practices.

It will be very visual and stylized. I will be using it mostly for self promotion, but depending how far I go with it, perhaps submitting it to festivals and competitions as well.

I'm looking for someone who can add further depth to this first person narrative and is also looking to add some creative work to their demos.

I'm open to ideas, but I'm imagining an accent to further hint at the atrocities taking place in Iraq and Guantanamo Bay.

The final video will be under 5 minutes.

Script Details

Sample script provided for auditions:

I WAS sick—sick unto death with that long
agony; and when they at length unbound me,
and I was permitted to sit, I felt that my senses
were leaving me. The sentence—the dread
sentence of death—reached my ears.

All at once, there came a most deadly nausea
over my spirit, and I felt every fiber in my
frame thrill as if I had touched the wire of a
galvanic battery. The angel forms became
meaningless specters with heads of flame,
and I saw that from them there would be no
