Fantasy Western in London, UK (26-29th August). Various Crew required (expenses)

I'm looking for the following team members to join my short film that i'll be shooting in the last weekend of August, in locations around London:

- Assistant Producer
- Dop
- Camera Assistant
- Make Up Artist
- Art Director
- Wardrobe
- Continuity
- Runner
- Set Designer/Builder

However, if you're interested in the project and you want to collaborate, I'm more than happy to hear from you!
Just check the website (http://www.milliwaysmovies.com) to read the script or contact olafek@mac.com for more information.
The commitment involves few pre-production meetings in some nice pub somewhere in London, just to know each other and decide what's the best way to work together!

I will (very probably) shooting on Canon Xl1 with the Mini35 adapter, with 35mm lenses.
One day in a studio with a green screen, and two days outside (locations to be confirmed).

The Story: in the city of Sourwater nobody dies anymore. People get hurt, but they don't die. Only Roland, a gunslinger, knows the truth. And he wants to find Adam Mortimer, his old employer, who seems to be connected with whatever is happening in the town, and who stole his dying girlfriend...

It is a self-funded project and the positions are on an unpaid collaborative basis, but I offer to pay the expenses plus food and a copy of the short on DVD. I can agree on a small fee if you have your own gear and you want to use it.
Enthusiasm and energy essential :)

I was unlucky. I had people working with me, but for some reason or another, they couldn't help me anymore. Well, shit happens, they say :)

I post this ad in some UK mailing list, and so far I was quite surprised by the amount of people that answered me in just 24hr!
London is a city full of people that want to be part of some film/video projects, and, due to the personal nature of this project, I don't mind working with people just out of movie schools or without much experience. I'm more than happy to see the project finished!

Were you able to de-interlace your footage? If not, I can still help out.

Applying for first job...

Okay, well I was originally planning to go to Full Sail this year, but now I cant afford it. So I'm planning on going to a local news station and applying for a job to learn the ropes and eventually work my way up to either an editor or camera op (I know this takes years so I'm ready for it). But I'm not exactly sure how the system works...when I go, should I apply for Production Assistant? What are the chances of getting hired with no experience? Has anyone done the same thing before? Thanks in advance.

Are you in a large city, or a small town? When I was considering this route, I was always told I'd have to move somewhere relatively small (I'm in Houston), and work there for like 2-3 years doing whatever it is I like (camerawork, for instance), and then, when you're good, you come back to the big city. Really, really, tough to start in the big city in those positions, editor and camera op. It's been done, but you have to be persistent like a sonofabitch to do it.

I know the position most young'uns (are you a young'un?) get hired in is called AP, (I think it stands for associate producer, or something like that). This position entails pulling scripts from the printer machine for the anchors to read on air, operating the teleprompter, and maybe a little writing? The thing is, according to my friend who did this for at least a year at our local CBS affiliate, that position is designed to groom you into being a new producer. You don't want to be a news producer, so this probably isn't for you. On the other hand, say you took this gig, and stayed after your shift was over, and came on weekends, whatever, and played on their NLEs and with their cameras, building up a reel of material, and kept applying for every opening in the departments where your interests lie, it could happen. Happened to another young'un at our Fox affiliate. He came in while he was in high school, on weekends and stuff, and played and played on the NLEs, and was eventually asked to fill in when someone else was sick or something, and parlayed that into a full-time job there.

Something else I just thought of, is community colleges. If they have a media department, or a TV station (for instance, in Houston, we now have HCCTV, HOuston Community College Television), they might hire you on on a freelance basis, start you operating the camera on multi-cam shoots, and let you work your way up to field shooting and editing packages. I was on this route 'til they cut their budget. Places like that'll hire less experienced, possibly even INEXPERIENCED people.

Good luck, hope some of this information is correct.

No problem. Also consider an internship, if they'll have you. Good way to do what i was talking about before. . .play with all their crap and learn how to do what they do. Could lead to a job, as well, though it's no guarantee.
