The script, “The Hard Candy Kid,” was written over a two year period and is a groundbreaking tragicomedy set in a fairytale version of America. Part-fiction, part documentary, it calls for visual styles as varied as vintage Technicolor and gritty black and white news reel footage. If the right DP were onboard--this film would put them on the map. (Films of interest/influence to this project: Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, The Night of the Hunter, Dr. Strangelove, The Wizard of Oz, A Clockwork Orange, JFK)
As the Writer/Director of this film--who also comes from a DP background--I’m looking for someone extremely artistic, ambitious and collaborative. Someone who wants to change cinema and believes it can be done with an independent film.
It goes without saying that the DP of the trailer will have the top slot at being considered to shoot the feature itself (which will be paid).
I believe the trailer will stand alone as a work of art in it's own right. Contact me if you are interested and let me know about your experience and ambitions as a cameraman. I can send you the synopsis of the film and the script for the trailer. We also have a video of a "text-based" animatic version of it I can send you a link for. We want to shoot this sometime between October 24-31st --ideally on the RED Camera.
Please message me personally with any questions. bealsonwheels AT GMAIL dot com
