Hi there.

I'm doing a short and my DP backed out. Ugly story. Looking for cool, focussed person to light a simple dorm room scene, that's actually a room twice the size of a dorm room, to look like a smaller dorm room. The opposite of artistic. Subtle.

It's with a name Exec Producer, and to showcase director's work to another name producer.

Pay is negotiable. At this point, you got me in a corner!

Please, please contact ASAP with link to a reel or video stills of your work. HollywoodHome@gmail.com. I won't check here. Thanks kindly.

I wish you the best of luck finding someone...

But the fact that you think "subtle" and "artistic" are opposites could lead to problems talking to some DP's. How about saying "natural instead of stylized"?

What's the shooting format, and do you have a rental package either reserved to be picked up, or already in hand? Is the package complete in terms of camera, support, lenses, lighting, etc., or is the DP expected to provide any or all of the gear? Have you made arrangements for audio? You should provide as detailed a list as possible, regarding gear and available support personnel.
