Crew needed for indie feature shoot in Chicago

Hi, I'm the DP and a co-producer for an extremely low budget (pretty much no budget) reshoot of a DV feature film called "For Steppers Only" written and co-directed by Anthony Batie, Sr. The basic story is about an African American girl named Monique who's college career is interupted by college funds. She soon learns of a dance contest named "For Steppers Only". Monique uses this as a strategy to overcome her financial as well as numerous emotional problems that happen along the way. The project is in pre-production stage and is schedule for it's first meeting July 17. This is to get the key crew members organized, discussion of the story and creation of a rough shooting schedule. We're looking for the following crew members:

Production manager, location scouts, set designer, assistant director (a must for organization), camera assistants, grips and sound.

Equipment:
This will be a 2-3 camera shoot utilizing a Canon XL1s, Sony VX2000 and possibly a Sony VX2001. We have basic grip equipment which consists of 2 fluid head tripods, a tripod dolly, a small jib arm, a homemade glidecam (hey it works), an possibly a dolly made with a flatbed garden wagon with pneumatic tires (a cheap trick there).

Lighting wise (a "home depot" light kit): 2 worklights on stands, 1 worklight sitting on ground as fill, 4 clamp worklights, variety of 100W-200W light bulbs, colored flood light bulbs, color gels, ND1.2 and CTB gels, diffusion, china balls.

Sound: Azden SGM-X shotgun mic (1/8" mini jack), Beringer mic amp with LED VU meter, boom pole. 4 2-way radios for core crew members(Director,AD,DP,PM).

And finally... Gaffers tape (in a variety of black and flourescent green and blue )

Seriously though if any possible crew members have equipment they're willing to donate (wireless mics a plus) feel free. If not we expect to use what we have and still treat this production as serious as possible. Production will probably be for a couple weeks in August. Food will be provided. This would be a good experience for any hungry, serious filmmakers out here in the Chicago area who's in the same grind looking to network and build up there skills. Age isn't an issue either (I'm just 18 myself) you just need to have the will to do this.

If interested send an email to: lkd_852003@yahoo.com

Kris,

Charles Papert shoots a short, seeks helping hands in L.A.

Hello gang:

Like the title reads, I'm shooting (as in DP'ing) a short film starting this Saturday the 17th and running through the following Sunday the 24th. I don't normally do these any more unless I am directing, but the script on this one convinced me to jump back in one more time!

I am using a DVX-100a with a Mini35 setup and a Zeiss lens package. We have some interesting lighting challenges ahead of us. We are still finalizing the grip/electric side of things, and desperately need crew in those departments. If there are any DVI'ers out there who want to help out and perhaps glean some lighting nuggets from the experience, we'd be happy to have you. Also, we need a camera p.a.--again, an opportunity to get some solid experience.

The lead actor is Sam LLoyd, who plays Ted the Lawyer on "Scrubs". Very talented.

Please email me with responses (or post here with questions).

Thanks all,

You guys are all very sweet, too bad you are all GU (geographically undesirable).

That, incidentally, is an LA dating term: with a city this big, finding out that the person you are interested in lives on the other side of town makes them GU...!

You can't get a break--even if you do live in L.A., there's still no guarantee you live in L.A.!

Yep, LA is GU. When I was dating, I would just not drive from Atlanta to Lower Alabama.

Good luck on the project Charles. Even if I had additional vacation time, just not enough experience to help. But I could day dream, right? :)
