Job opportunity...

I'm looking for a PA...really for me...to take lighting stills with my slr and print them to be sent in to the dailies colorist. I also need this person to do lighting diagrams of our setups as well. The bad news is that it is not a camera dpt position nor union, just an opportunity...and that it will only pay $10//hr. Must know how to use a digital slr and photoshop (camera raw).

Job starts May 7th. If you or anyone you know are interested, please email me and let me know some background.

I would do it if I was in LA just to do something different.

But I may be overqualified: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0372390/

And I need my union days for health insurance.

Do you need a gaffer?


Best

Dear Eric Steelberg,

I read your forum on cinematography.com that said you were seeking
Production Assistant. You stated $10/hour, but the money is not a
concern. I'm concerned about the experience and, of course, inter-
active professional influence.
I located to Los Angeles in 2003 after graduating Univ of Alabama-
Birmingham. In five years I have found various work in various
productions, big and small, and my abroad travels overseas include
London (uk), doc. reality series in Gold Coast, Australia, and 6 mo.
in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Most recently I've enjoyed full event
passes at 2007 AFI Hollywood Film Fest, and 2008 Sundance in
Park City, Utah. I am currently considering graduate study in
Liverpool (uk), or Farnham (uk), or NYU's Tisch School of Arts in
Singapore, Asia. I have a preference for international films.
Although
I'm not fond of the idea of returning to academic settings, simply
b/c my undergrad did me little justice. My academics were with honours.

It's been a long day for me, so I am sending this and I look forward
to speaking further upon your reply. Thank you in advance,

Dan McKeever
01-323-620-2828

PS
Your website includes Juno, which I viewed at it's opening at AFI. It
was very interesting; much more than the opener "Lions For Lambs",
and the closer, which I could critique in various viewpoints.

Hi Eric,

I believe I responded to your question of "where are you located". And I think I gave a response,
but have not heard back from you. Have you already found an available local? If so, I send kind
regards. Thanks for the consideration. "Te mando abrazos" as the argentines say, I send open arms.

So, I hope I'm not stepping over a line when I say this but Eric mentioned to me that this position was creating some Union controversy and that it may not be available. I felt the impression that it may get resolved but I wasn't holding my breath. Does anyone or Eric want to shed some light? Or should this just be forgotten? I'm thinking the latter.

Sorry Tim, you may have worked on several films that made over $300 million but the fact that you didn't work on any of the three top grossing films of all time makes you under-qualified.

(Hopes Tim realizes I'm being sarcastic)

What a resume though...seriously.

Indeed... you know, hey Tim, can I be your assistant? Film Loader? Carry your golf bags?
