556

MEGHAN Markle is searching for someone to help produce Pearl, her highly anticipated animated series for Netflix.

At the time of announcing the project, Meghan said of the show: “Like many girls her age, our heroine Pearl is on a journey of self-discovery as she tries to overcome life’s daily challenges.” David Furnish, Carolyn Soper, Liz Garbus, Dan Cogan, and Amanda Rynda are also said to be involved in the project.

Last week, Netflix shared a job listing for a Los-Angeles based Production Designer for the project which “centres on the adventures of a 12-year-old girl who finds inspiration in a variety of influential women throughout history”.

The ad describes the show as a “heartfelt adventure comedy series”.

The job specification for the position reads: “The Production Designer will help to develop, create, and support the aesthetic vision of our Executive Producer Team, working closely with the Show Runner to design multiple worlds representing various time periods throughout history.”

It adds that the perfect candidate will be “an accomplished artist” and will be equipped to “convey direction and visual communication through applied artistic skills.”

And they will need to design “multiple worlds representing various time periods throughout history” for the show.

On a day-to-day basis, the successful candidate will “develop and communicate the style guide and theory” and will be “responsible for creating and executing the visual flow of the series”.

In addition, Netflix’s newest Production Designer will have three to five years of CG animation production experience and will be someone who can “collaborate with grace, humility, inclusion and open-mindedness”.

Also, experience using digital drawing tools such as Photoshop is a must for any applicant, and “considerable knowledge of colour theory, lighting, staging, and perspective” is also desired.

The job spec adds that it is seeking someone who will “provide notes and mentorship to the creative team at partner studios, incorporating hands-on drawing, reference, and tools to enable the team to do their best work”.

Harry and Meghan’s deal with Netflix was signed in September 2020.

They aim to produce documentaries, docuseries, feature films, scripted shows and children’s programming, all of which aims to be “inspirational”, the pair said in September 2020.

One of the projects, a documentary entitled ‘Heart of Invictus’ is set to be released this year.

It focuses on the Invictus Games and follows a group of extraordinary competitors from around the globe as they prepare for this year’s event.

The Duke of Sussex, Patron of the Invictus Games Foundation, announced the fifth Games will be hosted in The Hague, The Netherlands.

However, due to Covid, these games were postponed from 2020 to 2021, but will now take place from 16 to 22 April this year.

Harry and Meghan also signed a deal with Spotify under the ‘Archewell Audio’ division of their foundation.

Since signing the deal, Harry and Meghan have only published one podcast episode so far, which was a 35-minute ‘holiday special’ in December 2020, featuring celebrity pals such as Elton John and James Corden.
