I'm shooting a $1.5M feature in Toronto this coming fall. Does anyone out there know of some good guys in T?

Thanks

Any other positions open?

Water boy, crowd control, prop painter?

Ok on a serious note how about 1st AC? That I could do for you. I live just north of the city.

Normally I only DP my own work but 1.5 mil is a decent budget especially if you are shooting 35mm so I would be interested in 1st AC.

I know this is late, sorry...

Last I heard, Scotty Allen was the gaffer in TO. He'd be worth looking up, though he may be retired now. Good luck with the shoot.

Not late at all. We are still slowly getting things together. Thanks for the tip. I will try to get in touch with Scotty Allen.

Thanks

A couple of lil questions...

What are your shoot dates?

What format are you shooting on?

Is the position still open?

As far as I know, Scotty has retired.

Any idea which union the production will sign with? Options are IATSE 873 & Nabet 700. Or are you going non - union?

Need any grips? :D

As noted before are you going union? I know some gaffers in IA and some that are independent. You PM me and I could reel off some names and numbers.
