Detroit Area Second Camera/Director

I"m producing and directing two music videos for an established musician and one up and coming band, both of whom have released their first album. The songs are terrific, one very Billy Joel and the other a really unique and mature rock sound (nothing heavy metal).

I'm looking for a second cameraman to help on all fronts except funding (which I will take care of). I'd prefer to direct all funding at making professional videos (locations, actors, equipment, etc.) that everyone will be extremely proud to use as a contribution to their reel, etc., but would consider compensating camera help also if necessary. Drop me an email if you're interested in dedicating some time to this, having great fun, and most of all are serious about professional results. Thanks, -Stuart

!!urgent!! Phoenix Az $help Needed$!!!

I've landed a promotional footage shoot for a seriously high profile show Thursday, September 21st. It is a comedy show in Scottsdale, AZ and "A list" celebs will be there. Go here for details on the show..

I need a second camera person to shoot and be available for all Thursday day and night and possibly to film behind the scenes stuff on Wednesday prior. I have 1 to 2 sponsors plus the entertainment management company all wanting promo. footage of the show. I only have one camera though!!! This is a paying gig although I don't know yet how much (still establishing contracts with the 2 to 3 entities). This is a GREAT opportunity to get exposure with some big time celebs and sponsors and possible future production jobs. You will have press access and possibly ALL access depending on which request is given. You would be under the umbrella of Time Lake Films contracted as a 2nd videography person and will possibly be asked back for several other higher paying projects. No editing involved, just hand me the DV tapes at the end of the night.

I'm looking for 3CCD SD cam + shooter on this project. Sony VX2100 is what I have. If you have the same, great! Otherwise.... Cannon XL1s/XL2/H1 - Sony VX2100/PD1xx/HDV or - or anything 3 CCD SD with good lighting. Expect to shoot for several hours, so have lots of tape and battery power. Im looking for an experienced person with a nice camera and good eye. All future work from these entities is dependent on this first impression. I will include you in the credits and also push your production entity as an affiliate.

There will also be an after party in which you could pick up more money and more footage. You may bring one person as a grip or assistant.

Contact me via email - OR phone 602-373-7570. Be prepared to send me something showing some of your work and at least one valid reference. This is crucial and HIGHLY time sensitive, please only inquire if you have the skills, equipment, talent and availibility. Only call once, leave voice mail, I'll return all calls. I need to have this solidified by Monday or Tuesday.

Since your typical rental for two weeks on a DVX100 would be something like $1500, your simplest and cheapest solution might be to just buy the camera and sell it when your done; I doubt you'd take a $1500 hit, probably well under half that. Good luck.

DVX Batteries Needed

Thanks for the advise/info guys. I'm negotiating a few leads. I also need to rent 4-5 extra batteries and chargers for the DVX-100. If anyone in the NYc area have a battery with a charger (preferably not factory batteries) then please email me with the specs. I will pay $50 for each battery/charger set for the 2 week rental. Happy to leave deposit or work out contract to insure safe return and confirm the rental. Thanks,

Have you contacted the Acoma Tribal government directly? While casual tourist photography may well be banned, they might be more receptive to a serious project proposal.
Good news, Cousins! This week's chocolate ration is 15 grams!

I saw the message on criagslist and sent you all an e-mail. I live in bowling green. No response yet though. I guess no one was interested in me helping.

sound expert needed Oct 7th NJ

I'm filming some interviews on Oct 7 & 8 for a documentary and need someone experienced to operate the sound. It will be mostly interviews 1 & 3 person, as well as some outdoor footage. Filming takes place in Medford NJ, 08055.

We'll be shooting in HDV on the Canon XL-H1.

We're on a modest budget but can negotiate some compensation.

mini35 for XL-H1 - anyone have one for rental?

Does anyone own a mini35 adapter that they would rent out every now and then? I have some short film projects coming up that I would like to use one in conjunction with my XL-H1.

Just seeing if anyone is out there ...

I'm in the NJ/NYC area ...
