what is the best way to find a DOP? Is there any advise or Help with any adresses or contacts? I am looking for a director of photography for the next feature film that we are going to shoot in Tirana, Albania in September this year.
The film is very low budget and we haven't decided yet on which format 35mm, 16mm or HD. Everything concerning the technique is to be hired/rented but the first step is to make an agreement with the DOP.
Can someone help with some info or adresses?
