I somehow missed earlier that you were still looking for just an internship.
I don't know what your prior letters said, but if you try those places again, stressingthat you will be available in NYC on or after July xx, you may get better responses. Then when you get to town you can call them again... By the time you write two letters and call (being local), that may get you enough "name recognition" to get an appointment or a referral.

My bad Jim, I thought that the documenting of the finding of a job in NYC went without saying... ;)

Of course my post was a last resort kind of thing (except for the advice on how to survive in NYC I stand by most of that) Bob had an even better idea about following up on the letters. I still think that if you're persistant enough there's bound to be someone in NYC who will hire you for a couple of months to work for free...

Gary:
I am local to you and have a Canon XL1S, and I'm available for the times you listed. Do you still need more camermen for your project?
Thanks,

Gonna try to keep this thread alive - Still looking for Shooters in the LA area and possibly Cleveland (John H, please get a hold of me). In despiration, I posted on the Seattle Craigslist.com and got a number of promising responses.

This is a paying gig with a decent rate for someone looking to justify his/her video habit!

I've already emailed, and I also remembered there is a local woman who specializes in horror/action films (actually went to school in LA). If I can get ahold of her, I'll ask her to email you. She lives in Alexandria. I worked with her on a music video shoot in DC. That is if you still need a makeup person.

BTW, I may be ugly enough to save you on makeup costs for zombie scenes if that will help(grin).

Mike,

I am very experienced in shooting interviews. I am in the Buffalo area which is about 3 hours drive away from Cleveland. I have a 3 chip, probably use the Sony VX-2000 for that, and I have an extensive lighting dept. and great sound. So if you need someone to go to Cleveland I'd do it. The only thing I'd ask for is that my travels are taken care of. I'd probably bring just 1 other guy for the trip.

Let me know if you need me.

Justin,
Thanks - I'll definately keep that in mind. Right now, I'm trying to coordinate talking to a couple of folks in the Cleveland area who look like they could do the job, but have not made committments yet.

Had this job come up a bit earlier, I would have done it myself - I just spent 4 days in the Buffalo area for my daughters graduation from UB. I would have welcomed an afternoon away!

BTW - Everyone, still looking for shooter in the LA area. Have gotten a lot of responses from a posting on Mandy.com, but they all fall into two extremes -

1 - "I have a fully equipted remote truck and crew of 4 - I can do the job for $1,600"; or

2 - "I got this really cool camera for graduation and I'd like to try it out"

I'm looking for something in-between. I've had good luck in the past getting well qualified shooter for short jobs like this (I figure <2 hours with travel and setup, interview and strike) for $100 or less. Not a great wage, but not an insult to a professional. I guess the LA area is a little different.

Seattle Shooter

Mike, Send me an e-mail if you'd like. I'm in Kirkland, WA, (Seattle area) and could help out.

Also, I'm going to LA area for my fathers 85th b'day at the end of June(24-25-26) with all my gear. I'll be staying in Pasadena, which is right next to Sierra Madre, and may have an extra day.

Let me know what you're looking for...
