Are you just taking a camera or a whole editing setup? If complete, maybe you can sell a series of "travel reports" to a local TV station (in Amsterdam)? I am thinking about a weekly 5 minute thing that they can use for news, filler between shows, whatever. If they are interested, they will tell you what they want/need for specs.

Picking up gigs in Australia is good for learning/meeting people, but you should give some thought as to what kind of projects you can do while living your experience. Your unique perspectives might have a wide audience, depending on how you approach it. Are you a gardener? Music fan? Raver? Kayaker?

I know this is not what you asked for, but I hope you find it useful...

Thanks Bob, for your reply. It's a good idea, there are lots of local smaller stations in this area. Maybe they are interested, I'll contact them.

But as you might have guessed, I was referring more to crew assistance jobs, like a PA, runner, driver, spark, etc. But your idea might even be better, since it will provide an opportunity to expand 'hands on camera'-experience.

From an article I saw, the Aussies are peeved at major studios. Big films like Ghost Rider with Nicholas Cage, aren't hiring locals for any of the work. But, Australia does sound like a cool place, specially if they let you work there on vacation... wait- isn't working on your vacation an oxymoron or something?

Anyways, I even heard some years back, the Aussies would pay for you to live there, providing you brought a needed work skill.

Needing help in KC

Are you locked into Thanksgiving weekend for your shoot? If so, it's doubtful I could help you. If you could do it the following weekend it's possible I could be available.

I have some experience, lights, mic and a GL2 or a XL1 available to me. You can see an example of my work, Cactus Cafe, at (you will have to register- but it's Free) or episode 27 at

South of Boston, in Norwood, is a company called The Camera Company. They can get you a DVX for the day.

Wanted: Camera Operator in Toronto


We have a simple project for this weekend (Sat Nov 12 to Mon 14) to record a series of lectures...(talking head up at the podium, really).

Instead of renting equipment from Vistek, I wonder if someone would be interested in helping out.

The budget is limited so this may be more for the hobbyist/student. (I think).

Should have own equipment (XL2, GL2 etc... plus a good quality wireless mic).

No editing or complicated shots...just record the speaker!

This is around the GTA area.

Let me know.

Last Minute for Saturday in Miami

We could use someone to shoot video on Saturday Nov 12 2005 in Miami Kendall area

This would be to shoot ice skating all day from about 7:30a - 7p or so. We are shooting with an XL2 but could use a second shooter.

Equipment would be required something that does well in low light with tripod and everything.

Not a high budget thing so if anyone is interested please contact me

UPDATE: The required time would be from 7:30am to about 1:30pm not to 7pm as initially mentioned
