Atlanta: Seeking a Creative & Energetic Assistant Shooter


Seeking a creative and energetic assistant camera-person with flexible hours for a new video shoot of new pending security door brace/lock that stops violent home invasions and burglaries. Over the past few years I have personally scripted, shot and edited (with help) most of hour product videos. I am far from an expert, however I believe our current product videos convey the intended message.

Please review the following links:

ShatterGARD Window Protection Film - Demonstration

YouTube - FogSHIELD

FogSHIELD Security Foggers, Stops A Burglar in Their Tracks once demo plays, click on video selector on right of page and choose from various videos.

So the above links give you a rough of idea of the type of production and story line were seeking on our new product. I will probably will shoot a mock home invasion, a before and after scene with our new lock installed etc. Believe it or not I have already built an indoor set at our Atlanta office consisting of a lit façade of a home with doors, brick facing etc.

I like to shoot with two and three cameras simultaneously. I presently utilize a Panasonic AG-DVX100B, JVC Hard drive CCD and Cheepy Panasonic cam. Should you happen to have a good camera and/or have the ability to also edit the footage-that would be great.

Recap: Can you operate a camera, set up lighting, tripods and possibly edit the footage? If your looking to make extra money and have fun.. then I have several projects waiting for you!!

Thanks very much,

Haha, love that fog thing, reminds of those baked beans I had a party once. I'm curious, what happens if the burglar breaks-in when I'm at home? Do I have to remember to disarm it?

BTW, I think it would be more effective if you started with a title screen, perhaps with, "Watch What Happens When a Burglar Goes Up Against Fogdog."

One more if I may. The music seems wrong to me for a burglary. You need a stealthy, suspense-building tune.

Finally, not sure, but that appears to be an interior door. Could cause a credibility issue.

The market for this gig has been established as the Atlanta area, but there should be some indication of how much time will be required and what pay rate is offered, even if it's in the form of a request, such as "please let me know what your day rate is." To establish the number of shooting days required, the target run time should be stated... will this be a half-hour infommercial, or a thirty-second spot, or a three-minute web video, etc. -- or all of the above?

I am not too far away, my parents live there, so lodging not a problem. at your disposal would be an EX1, HMC150 and probably a Canon A1 w/firestore. when you come up with rates and time, drop me a PM or email.

Good luck on your journey and enjoy.

It probably would not hurt to blog your adventure on this site every week or so. Be mindful to check with any ADs on a project that it is okay to do so and to draw the line on what information is allowed to go out. Some may be happy for all the free publicity they can get, others may want to stay quiet until a time of their choosing.

(Young people these days - all the upfront confidence in the world or putting up a good front. Regardless, the world is not doomed for lack of motivation in the current generation).
Thanks for the recommendations.

I'll be documenting lots of the trip, and I will be mindful to not let this interfere with any of my work.

Update to Seeking Atlanta Shooter Etc From Jordan Frankel

My Wants & Needs:

2-3 minute type web and TV type Infomercial

Before and After Demos- maybe 10-15 seconds long and can probably be pulled from the infomercial.

News Real Footage that can be sent directly to new networks.

* Most of the shooting will be conducted at my Doraville offices. (We built a set) however their will be some off-site shooting for the quick home invasion sceen, additionaly I require some exterior shots of homes, doorways, driveways etc. All ready have the locations lined up. I expect the shoot to take less then two days..but then again-I don’t know that for certain.

I require assiatnce with everything from shooting, scripting, editing to setting up lighting etc, so you be well rounded. Should you have some equipment to offer for the shoot-that would be ideal. I ask that everyone give me a rough idea of what they expect financially per day. I realize the editing cost will be additional. Remember you will assist with everything from carry equipment to offering advice as to the best way to shoot a scene to maximize the quality of the overall production.

My style of shooting (I am not a expert) is lets have fun, think out of the box and get those creative juices flowing.

If things go well-I will have plenty of future shoots for the right individual.

I am more then happy to speak with you regarding my post(s). I can be reached at 888-380-9350 or

Thank you all for your consideration.


PS. Please remember to review the website video links from my last posting.
