Nate-

I think you should get involved in a local filmmaking group and do some networking first! Try IndianapolisFilm.NET and offer to help on a group project. You'll learn all of the mistakes that lo/no budget producers make (such as not taking care of people and then losing everyones interest...) and how to avoid making the same mistakes so you can develop a good reputation for yourself. Reputation is key in small midwest film communities. I suggest waiting a little while before making your own films, or at least start with something VERY short, like a 30 second spot or a one minute movie. The lesson to learn here is that progress as a filmmaker comes from completing projects on time no matter what, learning what you did wrong, and then doing it all over again! It's really, really hard to complete anything longer than a couple of minutes, even with "highly committed talent." Things come up, and people walk. There are talented actors in the area who would love to be involved in well organized productions that make them look good and actually get finished. But, you just can't afford not to finish a project. So, try getting involved in someone else's project, learn from their mistakes, make contacts, and then call on them when it's time for you to make your own short film. Ok, So that's not exactly the answer to your question. Try IndianaActors.com... Just remember to start small. That's my advice to you, sir. Sincerely, Brian Wells

Where exactly and which two days?

Tim,

Could you clarify where in the high desert area your shoot is, and since it is a "2-day shoot filming September 8th" I assume that your mean 7th and 8th or 8th and 9th. Which is it?

I also sent you a private e-mail.

WTD: shooter in Vancouver for August 19 and 20

Hi there!

Is anyone free this weekend? I am doing some video shooting of a martial arts seminar for both mornings and afternoons and would love someone to help. Actually to operate the camera.

The topic of the day is tai chi, and how to push people very far, and how to move people without touching them. Sounds strange I know, but this is all from a martial context.

If you are interested in helping this Saturday and Sunday, August 19 and 20, please email me at eb7g@shaw.caNOSPAM.

On our last project we posted messages up at the local colleges. Most of the replies we got flaked out at some point. The dependable ones came from a local theater group.

One place that might be interesting is meetup.com. I just went to a Philly filmmakers meeting that was organized on that site. Several actors came up to us and asked if we had anything going on that they could work on.

OK Djee, see you at the show.

Can you think of other way to offer the job to Amsterdam shooters ? A Dutch forum or a local film school...

you could try this, www.filmvacatures.nl (dutch for 'film vacancy') it's a site of a dutch film and television organisation. Normally if you post a message, you get a lot of reactions. A lot of people involved in tv and stuff get on that site regularly. I believe it cost 1,30 euro for a message.

If you need any help just say so.(the site is in dutch, but you can post an English message) you can mail me throgh my profile

Looking for some cameramen with own gear in the Montreal area

I posted this on Craig's list but I figured I'd let the fine people of this forum know too.

Basically I'm looking to put a list together of cameramen with their own camera in Montreal to work occasionally on some event gigs. Mostly concerts and shows shot with 2 to 4 cams.

I'm using XL2s myself so I will probably give priority to those with this cam, but anybody else with a decent cam can contact me.

I try to shoot most of my productions in 16:9 / 30p format so a camera with those features is a big plus, but I also shoot some 4:3 stuff from time to time.

What I said on Craig's list is I'm willing to offer around 40$ (CND) per hour with a minimum of 3 hour pay per production and I provide tape stock and extra gear.

Obviously this is not broadcast but low budget productions so there are limits to what I can pay and I'm not expecting to get the best guys in the industry at that price, but you still have to know what you're doing and have a good enough skill level for proper exposure, framing, focusing, stability, etc.

I might want to look at a short demo of your work, nothing fancy, just to judge your skills as a camera op. It can be a Web link though not ideal.

People interested can Email me or call me at 514-885-4799.
