It's a 4-week shoot here in L.A., mostly at one location.
Although low budget ($850k), we're a very experienced team, and you can see us here.
We've got 15 Emmy nominations and won 4 (The Simpsons, Frasier), and have an Oscar-winning composer on the project. And yes, we know lots of DPs, but they all work at the network/studio level and we can't afford them on this. Also, they're all booked.
So we need a hungry up-and-coming DP for our Christmas comedy. Shooting on an Alexa and finishing in UHD. The movie has distribution.
This is a character-driven family Christmas comedy. As for style, it would be as though Woody Allen directed A Christmas Story. Longer takes, but with fast-paced farce. Lots of blocking. Excellent cast with great comedic timing.
As a director, I'm extremely collaborative with the DP, so you won't be just following orders. I want a creative partner, not someone phoning it in. It's a great chance for someone who wants to (1) get a feature under their belt with a fun, Emmy-winning team, or (2) has been doing lots of drama/horror and wants to cleanse their palate with a witty comedy.
Of course there is pay, but remember the $850k budget.
Please post links to your reel and I'll look at them all.
