Hi all of you cinematography.com movie people. I too am a passionate filmmaker (assuming you all are passionate as well since you're here at this site) and want to share my enthusiasm for telling great stories with other clever filmmakers. I am the owner and operator of an Eclair NPR Super 16mm package with a PL mount retrofitted to it. I am here looking for advice on ways of finding people who I can collaborate with on getting some film running through my camera. I work a regular 9-5 as a location scout, but I want to use my spare time (that is evenings and weekends) shooting as much film as possible. Does anyone have any advice on lining up some projects? I live in LA, and have for about 7 years and all I ever come across is dreamers who are talk only. What I would ideally like to do is produce some projects by bringing the right people together and shoot using my equipment. I am looking for advice, bear in mind that I have built up quite a reel on many student films and shorts that I have had a hand in producing. I guess my question is, what's next? How do I make that connection from the shorts and the festival circuit to the leap into features?
