Re: What's the best way to attract a Independent Film Crew?

Finding a crew that will work for free isn't unheard of. It can still happen to this day. In fact, I recently finished playing assistant editor and audio mixer for a short web vignette created to help raise money for a feature-length film. My co-worker and his friend operated cameras on the shoot and other friends of the director helped out with field audio, lighting and general wrangling, gaffing, what-not. None of us got paid, but we enjoyed helping out.

I realize a feature-length project is much different, but I've done a lot of post work for free for friends and associates and never mind helping out when I have the time. There are plenty of people out there who enjoy working on movie projects, you just have to keep looking. Anyone who tells you a crew must get paid has been a part of the professional side of things for too long. There are always people out there who will surprise you with their generosity. Don't give up the search.

Re: What's the best way to attract a Independent Film Crew?

By no means was I trying to suggest that ti's impossible to find a crew to work for free, even a good one. What does apply though is the old adage : "Quick, Cheap, Good - pick two."

In terms of a feature project, the scope of the project and the length of the commitment is what becomes the issue, and that's why doing a good job of treating your crew well is very important.

Re: What's the best way to attract a Independent Film Crew?

"Don't give up the search." Thanks John!

I didn't give up the search and I now have a team of 6 (behind the camera). I have three more on standby that are willing to pitch in if any of the original 6 don't make it.

I'm very fortunate that it worked out this way. It takes more work, yes. But I'm glad I went this direction. I have a dedicated team.

... now all I have to do is get some of those snotty actors.

:-)

Re: What's the best way to attract a Independent Film Crew?

The problem seems to be that you're trying to get crews from sources where a freebie generates temper tantrums. I mod a theatre forum where the same thing happens - we started a low/no pay area for these kind of projects, but it still generates tons of bad feeling. Here in the UK we have a national minimum page law, and it got so bad that people were reporting worthy projects because they were asking for skilled people, rather than keen amateurs, and as such, are indeed circumventing a law designed to protect people. Even if they wish to work for free, it's very difficult.

The problem is also that pros are very often totally uninterested in the product - so pay is a necessity, because they don't see any personal benefit in doing it for free. I still do the occasional freebie if the project really interests me - but that's the problem. The various internet lists are for crew who make a living out of the industry - totally independent of the product. Do they actually care if the programme gets viewers? No - nothing to do with them. Keen amateurs may even have better production values, but might take longer or not produce the result you want.

Very difficult choices.

I'm looking for more work paid or not in N. Cali Wedding / Corporate Etc.

Hi, I'm a DSLR Videographer here in the Bay Area. I mostly do weddings and some corporate work. I'm looking for good opportunities to work with you if you are very experienced in your field. I've only done a handful of projects with folks that have more experience then I do, so I have very little real training. I have a solid reel if you need to see it.

Looking to gain more experience in Weddings, Lighting and Audio as well as small to big corporate gigs.

Hit me up with your next project.
