Hi

Hello all
I've produced several plays and now am getting ready to shoot my first feature film. I currently have a show in NYC, an Equity Showcase, if you want you can check: www.twodestinies.net
About my career as an actor, you can visit: www.guilebranco.com
About the film I'm going to produce: www.aprodigalfeast.itgo.com

Here's my plan: I'm trying to decide which is the best option for me to procceed in this project - I have seen many mistakes over and over again by inexperienced producers and will do my absolute best to get this right. I have a shooting schedule of 25 days and will definitely need a good DP. Now here are my options:

1 - Find a DP who owns 35mm camera or Super 16mm (silent or MOS (final decision will depend on many factors - I'd prefer a silent camera cuz it's a hassle to do the whole sound thing in post - but if I'm out of option and $$$ I'd do it)
2 - If I find it more affordable, I am willing to buy the equipment and hire the DP for the lower price - my camera budget would be around $2000-$8000 (I'm aware I could only get a rather noisy camera at this range)

I would like to hear from a few cinematographers here in NY who would perhaps like to work with me in this independent project - please, if interested write me an e-mail at: guilbranco@yahoo.com
Please let me know of your day rates with and without equipment.
Best Regards
Guile

Day rates are going to vary a lot depending on your budget. If you posted a range that your budget will be in then it will be easier for people to decide whether they're interested or not, and also help them guage what rate would be fair.
Rates will also vary quite a bit depending on what kind of equipment someone has.

Why do you want to buy the camera?

Obviously, finding a DP with a package seems to suit your needs, but the vast majority of productions rent their gear (you can find several threads on this site discussing the benefits of buying versus renting).
