Due to a scheduling conflict with previous designer, need to hire and get someone up to speed ASAP.
Scope: Creating Projections for world premiere show from the award-winning tap dance company Chicago Tap Theatre. Show is approximately 1 hour and ten minutes without intermission.

Pay: Pay is $350
Please submit resume to email@example.com by May 15th.
