Hi guys, thanks for the replies (from Texas to boot!)

The project is scheduled to start at the end of August and will go through til around January/February of next year - but this mainly depends on cast and crews availabilities.

To reitirate, the job is unpaid (I did mention it but you may have missed it) - as a result I'm afriad I can't help anyone out with travel or visa's (ain't it always the way?)

If you are still interested please let me know and I can e-mail you all the details you want - including an almost-final copy of the script if need be.

Cheers once again - Jon
I had a handle on life but it broke.

Are you looking for volunteer or paid work? Just asking because I know a great composer who might be interested in working for your project, but he wouldn't work for free.

Wow; never mind! I don't know how I missed that in your post!

Lighting guy/gal/crew needed for short film in Roxboro NC

I am shooting a short crime drama that will be taking place at a local bar. My former lighting guy bailed on us at the last minute and we are having to re-schedule. We were hoping to shoot this Sunday but I would not want to rush someone into this project. We are probably going to be aiming for the end of August to shoot again.

Btw I need you to provide your own lighting kit and keep in mind that this is a ultra-low to no-budget film so you will not be getting paid. You will receive credit and a copy of the film.

DP needed for Spec Commercials

I'm looking for a talented DP to build a working relationship. I'm pursuing a career directing commercials. I've shot two so far. You can check it out at

My learning experience from my first two spec is to shoot HD and to collaborate with a creative DP. The camera of choice is HVX200/M2 adapter.

There is pay, although it won't be much.

Location! Vancouver B.C!

Hello all once again..

We are in the midst of pre production on a short film and as per Murphy's law, our main location pulled out on us at the last minute. We HAD been planning to shoot July 28th/29'th but now we are looking at August 4th/5th.

On the offchance that there are tons of vancouverites browsing these boards, i'm making a plea to anyone in the lower mainland (burnaby/vancouver/downtown) who has or know of an apartment (seedy can be good too) who would let us shoot at the above dates.

If you could shoot me an email we'd mucho appreciate it.

SF/Bay Area: Seeking a muscian to help me score a short independent film

I am seeking a creative collaborator (or a small group of people) to create an original score for a short film project. Ideally I am looking for local people in the San Francisco / Bay Area.

This film is a high definition video project that I have been filming in SE Asia since 2002. The working title "16x9" reflects the sixteen or so South East Asian nations that I have visited during nine trips over the last 5 years.

This is the first time I have presented any of my work or sought the assistance of others. My ambitions for this project are very modest; perhaps to create something worthy of entry in a few minor film festivals.

This is a no-budget production, and I am not soliciting paid help. This might be suitable as a student film project or for someone with a keen interest in this genre of films, looking for a first project to become part of.

In return, I can offer you full participation in this project, and broad creative control and credit. I’m seeking an artistic partner, not just someone to score my visual ideas.

I’d like to find someone who is used to working with Apple Macs, OS X, Final Cut Pro Studio, & Soundtrack Pro. I can provide you with this equipment if you do not have your own. I will probably consider gifting this equipment and software at the end of the project, providing the collaboration is a successful one.

I have edited this short eight minute ‘proof of concept’ in order to show some of my footage and a few of the ideas I have about this as a finished piece:

Large 316MB h.264 file, please view with a broadband connection and the latest version of Apple’s Quicktime. It's been hinted for web streaming but unless you have a very fast connection, you'll probably want to let it download for a while. I can also provide it on DVD.

This has not been color graded, and the sequence and narrative is not exactly what I foresee for the finished project. However the non-verbal style and split-screen motif will be central to the finished film (although I am planning on a greater proportion of full frame imagery).

The basic objective is to illustrate the range of religious, cultural and economic diversity in South East Asia during the first decade of the 21st century.

This will be supplemented with existing footage from China, Mongolia and Thailand, plus new high quality XDCAM 24p material shot in China, Tibet, the Philippines, Brunei and Cambodia during the next 6 months.

I am hoping this will be a fun and productive collaboration. I’m a really flexible individual and definitely don’t have a film-makers ego. I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

Final note, the clips above includes scenes shot in Burma during April 2006 but I do not advocate tourist travel to this country, and regret my decision to visit there.

Composer/sound designer available

Hello. I am looking to get my foot into the world of composing music and doing sound design for film. I have composed for feature and short film, dance, art installations, and other misc. collaborations.

Ideally I would like to work on paid projects, but I am willing to work pro bono and deferred if the project piques my interest.

My interests as a composer are minimal acoustic/orchestral music, generative forms, non-linear music, electronic/acoustic hybrid sounds and pop electronic forms. I am a performing musician and a classically trained pianist with a music degree to top it all off.

Audio Clips (short mp3 clips in varying styles):
Asian Flute/Upbeat Intense Pop Electronica
Upbeat Fun Blues Based Dance Music
Violin/Electronic Trip Hop
Rhodes/Glitchy Jazz
Violin & Microtonal Orchestra:
Cinematic Orchestration
Round Airy Electronic Waltz
Ambient Noise is my website where you can view/listen to even more examples. is the fastest way to reach me I am local to Seattle Washington.

Hope to hear from you!
