Freelance EX1 Shooter in Colorado

I'm an experienced documentary filmmaker with a Sony EX1 based in Boulder Colorado. I have my own production company called Soul Fabric Films and we're in pre-production on two projects right now. I also freelance for other producers at this time.

I shoot, direct and edit, and work with a wonderful sound person here as well. Am happy to travel for work.

My equipment is as follows:

Camera Package:
Sony EX1 - A true HD 1920 x 1080 variable frame-rate solid state camera and accessories.
I also have two 1-chip hand-held Canon HDV cameras that I'm using as "diary cams" for some of my projects.

Sound Kit -
Sound Devices 3-channel mixer
1 Lectrosonics wireless lav mic
2 Senheiser wireless lav mics
2 Senheiser shotgun mics (one with wireless transmitter)
Boom pole and accessories.

Lighting Package:
A very nice (and documentary friendly) lighting package for interviews and/or night scenes.
Includes a softbox key light, reflective fill, back light and background light.
Numerous stands and accessories (including a boom-pole mount).

I also have a great little 8 foot portable jib for some really smooth flowing establishing shots and interesting movement for interviews.
Multiple tripods.

I'm cutting with the most current version of Final Cut Studio (version 2).

Email me for a resume and to discuss rates for your next project.

Cheers,
Zachary

Looking for Work In New York

I'm getting into professional camera work for the first time. I am half way through college and need a means to pay for the rest of undergrad/grad school. I figured I would be better served investing in a camera (based upon my current skills/training/education) than working as a retail whore for 7 dollars an hour... Thus my current predicament.

My age isn't necessarily indicative of my work experience as my resume consists of having worked on numerous short films for sva/nyu/columbia grad/purchase college/numerous boston art schools. I'm an award winning director, have vast experience with NL editing (multi platforms), have been a cinematographer on multiple occasions, and have worked on film/dv/hdv/p2, and soon SxS.

I soon will be getting my spanking shiny new ex1 in the mail, and as such I will need work just to pay back a majority of the loan I am taking out to purchase it.

I am willing to help out on corporate jobs, weddings, shorts, full lengths, etc. I have a vast wealth of knowledge on almost every topic imaginable, and could be a help to anyone willing to work with a fast learner. My obvious weakness is my inexperience working in most specific fields of videography, however my obvious strengths are my dedication and hard work, in addition to numerous others that would become quite apparent after even a half hour of working with me.

I am willing to work while training free of charge, as long as after training there would be obvious economic incentive to said work.

I would love to be able to do work for free, however schools don't accept demo reals as currency, and neither does BH's "bill me later" financing program.

I am willing to travel anywhere in the New York tri-state area, and even as far as most of upstate new york.


Hope I can be helpful to someone,
Alex.

Hey Alex,

It'll be a little different but you might try looking at temp agencies (if you haven't already), especially in the NY area you might be picked up for a PA job on a set there or you can check out the job board on your college (if you are at a film school) I know production companies sometimes try to fill their low positions that way. Try to be very careful on Craigs List or Mandy.com both don't have the greatest reputations for reliability or integrity, very few legitimate production companies advertise that way but you never know! You'll find that the film industry is quite different than video but I'm sure with a little ambition and hard work you'll find that the knowledge is very useful.

You could also get a job at B&H!

Best wishes,

To whomever moved this thread -- thank you -- I assumed this much would be done.

In regard to school - no I'm not at a film school - I'm currently at community college and am going to be going to suny purchase (most likely) as a Journalism/Media double major. I decided that undergradute film school would narrow down my possibilities in the real world too much, as well I figured it wouldn't give me quite the real world connections I would make at a graduate program. Thus I am trying to save as much money as possible while still making a life for myself doing what I love.

The idea mentioned above in regard to being a PA, I will too check out, however that will not sufficiently sustain my financial neccecities. 2 more years of undergraduate at state school = 20k, 2 years of graduate work at either USC or NYU (the only places in the States that will give you the sort of real connections you will need to be succesful) will run an extra 80k.

Therefore I would need to in a sense transform myself from merely a student, into a working-professional. I was not as fortuate as some other kids my age where I could get into a college and not worry about a thing (in fact I got accepted to NYU Liberal Arts program, but couldn't go due to finances). Therefore I will need to work my ass of in order to insure a better future for myself. This I'm not opposed to, however my current problem is the transition. I need to be able to take that "next step", because otherwise school would be unattainable. It is not impossible as there are numerous working professionals in the videography/film industry my age who are less talented/intelligent/experienced than myself, however I reach a snag due to the fact I currently am enrolled at a community college.

Still hoping someone could use a talented cameraman with an ex1,
Alex.

PS - In regard to coorporate gigs, I have a lot of experience in terms of marketing. Therefore would be able to contribute significantly in terms of the creative aspect to the production.

I usually donít work for free unless services can be traded for example Iíll be a cameraman for a TV station for a day if Iím allowed to use an editing system for my own personal projects. India is one of the places that I though about traveling to and if this offer included roundtrip airfare, Iím in. I know thatís too good to be true.

Maybe Iíll pray that you come up short in your crew so that youíll be forced to offer roundtrip airfare.
Just joking.



By the way, if I were you, Iíd make sure to have a lot of behind the scenes footage so that you can put it in the extras of a DVD or HD disc. That should make it a lot easier selling your film.

Can I just take this a bit off track? I don't want to start a flame war here, and if I accidentally do, I'm sure this'll be deleted anyway.

I understand getting a college degree, but I'm not sure about the graduate degree. The thing is, in this industry degrees really don't mean anything! You don't need one to succeed, and chances are that anything technical you can learn in school you can learn on the job or as a trainee, for pay. The point is, whatever your passion/career is in the industry (writer/director/cinematogarper), you might be barking up the wrong tree trying to accrue 80K for schooling you don't really need to get jobs. Why not finish your community college degree and just get out there and work? If anything, go to grad school for something totally unrelated that you can fall back on should this whole industry not work out for you. Unless you want to teach, that is, and need the grad degree. In that case, disregard.

Josh you bring up a good point. An advanced degree isn't necessary but you would be surprised to know that a lot of people in upper management usually have advanced degrees. I know several producers that have advanced degrees in various disciplines (from art to law to business, sometimes a combination). Everyone is different and and their objectives are different as well. Alex may want to eventually get into a major motion picture company. The corporate type of people in charge of that kind of organization are impressed with advanced degrees (of course having talent doesn't hurt either) so the 80k in investment could really pay off with that. Of course Alex may be the type that always wants to learn and grow in a university situation. Having an advanced degree also means that later on in life he may also want to teach.

I have to agree, an advanced degree, would just set you back a ton of money and probably you'd have a good bit of experience less than if you were actually working in the field. Finish your undergrad to make sure it's what you want to do, and if you can't pay for it, take some time off and work in the area. Nobody said you have to go straight through. Everyone is right here, a reel will say much more than any piece of paper you can present, even if it comes from NYU or USC.

I wish! Thanks for the tip though.
