Could someone get me the "Nashville Star" opening graphic?

Hey all

I am new member here. I've spent a while searching the forums and reading various topics. But this is the first time I've actually posted something. I know it's rude for a stranger like me to ask for favors, but if it's quick and easy for someone to help me out then this won't be too much to ask.

I am putting together my director's/editor's reel and I did some short term AC work on this season's "Nashville Star" show (now airing Monday nights on NBC). I want to obtain the opening title graphic to incorporate into my reel and I do not have the means to grab it off the TV. My VCR is broken, and I don't have a way to record a TV stream on my laptop.

If anyone is able to grab the opener, compress it to a MOV file and email/upload to me I would be very grateful. Let me know if it's possible, and we can discuss further via email.

If this is a lot to ask, then perhaps someone could suggest how I might go about getting the opener.

All the best

New Mac convert, Charlotte NC

COMPOSER needed for short film by AWARD-WINNING director

Looking for a composer that can score the short film “Shoot”. It's a 20 minute comedy/drama about a guy named Dave Deforest fighting to continue his dream career in photography.

Composer must be available June 17th-22nd for scoring the film (not constantly, but daily replying to e-mails). This is a student production, therefore the only compensation I can offer is credit + a high quality internet download of the movie.

Please e-mail us if interested at: with subject "COMPOSER-"Shoot" June 2008"

PS: Having an AIM or MSN screen name I could communicate on with you is a big plus.

If you worked on the show, can't you ask the production company for it? That way you would get the highest quality possible (someone grabbing it for you may look rather cheap and not help your cause) and you would be on safe ground as far as copyright goes.

2nd camera for wedding in NE Ohio Jul. 19th

Just found out my client wants a 2 camera shoot for her wedding on the 19th of July. The event is in the Warren/Youngstown Ohio area. As this just came up, all of my colleagues who I would usually call upon are booked already.

I would require a person who has their own equipment, preferably HD if possible. The final product will be a widescreen DVD but I like to acquire in HD anyway for more options down the road. I shoot with a Canon H1 and a Canon HV20 for a wide balcony shot to cut away to if the other cameras goof up. This is basically a "c" roll camera! :)

This 2nd camera person should be skilled enough to cover wide to medium shots handheld and on a tripod. I will handle all the closeups and creative shots. I don't expect the handheld shots to be "Steadicam" perfect but no nauseating fast pans and shakes. I need this camera to fall back on when I get too creative and blow focus on a critical shot or accidentally bump the "pause" button in the middle of the ceremony.

Anyone in the Ohio area interested shoot me an email through my profile and I'll let you know the pay. It's pretty standard fare for a 2nd cam in the area.

This would be for both the wedding "and" the reception.

Thanks for any replies in advance.

Try VMI at

Might find it hard to find a DVX 100 to rent. Might have to use the HVX200 and record to tape if that's what you need.

To the best of my knowledge, it's a non-profit business. The money they make from films/television that show the sign, they spend it maintaining the sign.

Can you paint with light?

Hi there. I'm looking for a seasoned DP who can "paint with light" and is familiar with the jvc hd100 and hdv codec. I'm looking for someone who can not only light a scene realistically but artistically and expressively depending on mood and atmosphere of the given scene. I have a short film I want to shoot on the hd100 and need to find a quality DP. Send me your webpage or link to your reel. Thanks!
