Hello everyone,

My name is Jamie Horton and I run a UK based website called ChasingSafety.co.uk

The site aims to promote UK and international bands though the mediums of live performance videos, video interviews, written articles, photography, exclusive unique content and lots of interaction with our audience. Since our formation in 2006, Chasing Safety has always provided excellent footage from top shows around the UK, which always entertain our audience and impress bands and industry folk alike. Chasingsafety.co.uk recently launched on the 30th June and has been gaining popularity by the day.

Have a look around the site and you'll get to know what we're about!

Now that we have a solid foundation with our film crew in London, I am looking to expand into other markets such as San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles. However, for now I'm focusing on a San Francisco team.

Saying this, I want to find 4 or 5 young individuals who can morph into a hard working team that can film shows in these areas. I need camerapersons who ideally have their own video equipment (Sony PD150 or higher quality) or have easy access to equipment, plus a person with their own sound recording equipment which is capable of recording the bands audio from the sound desk.

If you're interested, please email me on jamie@chasingsafety.co.uk with a few details about yourself, how you feel you can fulfill the role and any equipment you have already. Feel free to pass onto friends and family who may be able to help with this. Even though I'm focusing on SF for the time being, please still get in touch if you're able to fulfill this role in either Los Angeles or New York.

Hope to hear from people soon!

Thanks,

Jamie.

First of all, Video-ing is not Filming... not that there is anything wrong with shooting Video... but you can't say 'my Film Crew'.. and then talk about PD-150s...

You would have better luck on Craiiglist.

Tim, groveling to the rest of the world is unbecoming... there are many many things they are THANKING us for...

Who's gonna apologize to US for the next 4 - 8 yrs... the way this election is looking (?), we'll have to apologize to ourselves.

Apologists get ready!

Oh, hadn't you heard? All camera crews work for nothing here.

This is illegal in the UK, but it's rife anyway.

Groveling? I don't think I was groveling. Simply apologizing for the actions of a president and his administration don't go far enough. The damage they and the neo-cons have done to the US and around the world will take a long time to heal and recover. Just look how the republicans got their asses kicked is the 2006 and 2008 elections. That did not happen by accident. That is why the democrats now have control of White House, the House and the Senate.

As far as apologizing to US, what are you talking about? I am personally very excited and think that President elect Obama has the chance to be truly great and do wonderful things. And he even has the approval of the world. That approval will help repair Bush's go it alone attitude that is breaking our military and helping to put American in financial ruin.

The challenge for Obama is to control the democrats from going to far to the left and keep them towards the center. I think he has the ability to do so.

On the surface, I will enjoy a president who can actually speak and be articulate in front of the press and the world. The man is calm, cool and very smart. There will be no need to apologize.

Best

That's all you got?

If you can't see how Obama presents a new and fresh start for our country domestically and internationally, then I wonder if it's not you that's drinking certain GOP refreshments ... and watching too much FOX news.
