TORONTO/GTA Canon HDV Rental Request: Easy Money

I have a fairly big job coming up, and I will be shooting with my Canon XHA1. Unfortunately, this job requires multiple cameras, and I am having a really hard time finding A1's or G1's (or H1's)for Rent. Vistek is all booked for that weekends (July 6th) so I am offering $250 cash for a one day rental of your XHA1 (or G1) They will be used by professional camera op's who are compelteley familiar with the camera, and your camera will be fully insured against damage incurred while on loan (if not covered by warrenty, eg. dead pixel). This could also lead to future work with our company ( as we are often looking for talented operators with their own systems.

If you are interested in making some fast, easy money ($250 for no work isn't bad), contact me via PM here, or respond to this thread. We'll exchange numbers and we can meet in person so you can establish I am not a theif who wishes to abscond with your Camera :)

Thanks in advance.

Matthew, cross-posting is strictly forbidden at DVinfo. The correct place for this kind of post is the Helping Hands forum, the Classifieds are for buying and selling. Have moved your thread there and deleted the others.

D.O.P needed for feature in Perth, Western Australia

Hi everyone!

I'm planning a feature film to begin shooting sometime at the end of this year, and unfortunately my D.O.P has had to pull out due to travel arrangements.

So I'm putting out a call for D.O.P's in Perth Western Australia!

Unfortunately due to budget constraints (aint it always the way? Most of it's gone on equipment) the job is unpaid, but it's going to be a large, professionally run project that would be great for getting names out there!

Some of the equipment you'll get to play with include a Canon XL2 camera and a Redrock M2 adaptor, as well as some Nikkon SLR len's.

The film itself is a look at both how relationships can be taken for granted and how rifts can occur between generations, set against the backdrop of an alternate current - day, where two political powers are engaged in a kind of 'cold war' (think the Berlin Wall).

I already have the makings of a great crew including two concept/storyboard artists, an acting coach, a music composer and several highly talented oung actors/actresses -all of whom are young names trying to get their work seen.

All I'm missing is a good D.O.P :)

I know it sounds pretty pathetic trying to find someone with these skills with nothing to offer but a credit, but there'll be no better chance for someone in Western Australia to have a crack at a project this size, and what can I say - you gotta start somewhere.

If you're interested or have any questions whatsover, please reply.

Cast/Crew members needed for Arizona no-budget Fantasy/comedy (Take #2)

Well, At the risk of being added to the looong list of cheesy requests for unpaid talent, here is mine, LOL!

Current Status:

On occasional weekends and possibly some weekdays during the fall/winter of 2007/08 I am going to shoot a feature length mini-DV format movie with XL1 cameras. I already have 1 camera as well as minimal audio equipment. I have three musical groups lined up for the soundtrack: Freezepop, Leslie Fish and (probably) Yachay. We have been trying to contact Rasputina and The Arrogant Worms for additional tracks but have gotten no reply yet. I will be directing, producing, building props, running one of the cameras Etc, Etc.

What We Need:

A good DP with his own XL-1 and/or just a second cameraman with an xl-1

A good sound person who has a decent portable recorder.

A secondary hair/Makeup person.

A lighting person. We also need lighting equipment.

We could use prop builders, a boom operator, prop handlers, and all the other folks that make a production run smoothly.

We have most crew positions still open and everyone involved will probably be wearing multiple hats.
We need lots of props and costumes, but may be able to borrow some of those from the local SCA group which may also provide some of the extras.
We are short several key actors and many smaller parts.

Missing Key Roles:

-Male Nerd/Gamer character: Strong acting and comedic skills required. Age range: should look like Teens to Twenties, skinny to average build. This is a major role and Dependability and ongoing availability are a must!


To produce a niche film appealing to nerds, fans of swords and sorcery films and people fed up with daily life, specifically "office-space" type working conditions.
If we succeed in creating a good finished product, we will pursue multiple avenues to turn that into cash, such as pitching it as a TV pilot, going direct to video, selling copies at Science-Fiction conventions, or whatever we can think of

What We Are Offering:

Screen credit.
1 meal or snack per shooting session. (Usually)
2 (DVD+R) copies of the film. And an additional 2 (Regular DVD) copies if it is released commercially.
Main actors and Key crew will receive from 1/2% to 1% of revenue from the film itself.
Minor actors and non-vital crew will not receive financial compensation unless the film earns us over 50,000 US dollars, in which case they will each receive a 100$ payment.
Any crew members not already appearing on screen will be given small walk-through parts if they wish to appear on screen. (Peasant#6, Guard#12, etc.) It is nice to be able to point to yourself on screen and say "there I am!"

Please note, this is essentially an unpaid amateur production and you will be working with a first time director. There will probably be some false starts and duplication of efforts. Patience with the process and with your fellow actors will be essential!

Thanks for considering supporting our project!

Hi Jon,

My name is Matt, and I've been filming with the XL2 for 2 years, and have been shooting mostly outdoors (billfishing; action sports). I'm interested in more details, dates, travel etc. I'm based in Texas right now... not sure if a visa will be a problem or not. If you're interested in talking with me further please email me at:
