ISO AC next week for a short film
Posted 14 July 2010 - 02:08 AM
I'm shooting a short film next week called "Time and Love." It's about a 30 year old guy who tries to look up the girl he was in love with in 6th grade. Most of it is black and white, except the flashbacks to childhood, which are a 16mm/Super-8 combo of color.
We're shooting on a Canon Scoopic, and also some Super-8. So the cameras are pretty simple. But nevertheless, I would love an experienced AC to mind the cameras. Load, unload, check the gate, measure focus, etc. And more importantly, someone to serve as a second set of eyes/brains while I'm shooting, so I don't do anything *really* stupid, like forget to get an obvious and simple shot.
This is a very low budget affair -- I'm funding this myself -- so there is not a lot of money here, but I could pay $200 for an 8-hour day (cash), and $25/hour for days we only go a few hours. This is the only position being paid, as I know how valuable (crucial) a good AC is, and so I'm very grateful for anybody who's up for it.
If you are interested, please contact me ASAP.
Also, I made a short film a few years ago you can watch on imdb:
This is in a somewhat similar "spirit" to that -- but the subject matter is much different.

firstly, let me say it's a real relief to see you offering anything paywise-- even though it's low in a lot of ways I think it's the thought that counts-- but my main point is that you might get a few more responses if you list where you're shooting
Good luck. Sounds interesting.

We are shooting in Studio City. The days I really need help on are next Wed and Thur (July 21/22).

Let me change the rate. Same details as before, but $300 (cash!) for an 8-hour day.
So: Next Wed/Thurs (July 21-22), in Studio City, California.
I know this is probably still way below market rate (what is market rate?), but this is a self-funded project, so we really don't have much money. But I would love to get somebody who reads this board, since everybody here takes things very seriously, and this has been a tremendous resource for me over the years.
If you know anybody who may be good for this, please have them contact me as well. Experience with a Scoopic MS a plus, but not essential as it really is a pretty simple camera.
Thanks so much,
