Check the Producers club too. They have rooms that are all black, with black curtains in the back.

I use the Producer's Club a lot, especially for rehearsals & castings, it's a great place. I even took Judith Weston's class there. It's close to midtown/Times Square, so good access to public transportation, there's a parking garage down the street but keep in mind, vehicle traffic can be bad in that area. There's an inexpensive 1 Michelin star French bistro across the street called Marseille if you're wining & dining, or just want to treat yourself. But one caveat! the building and interiors are very run down and beat up, so be careful who you interview there.

Another great place is Photo Manhattan. It's much more presentable than the Producer's Club and the big plus their photo studios are setup for photographers which are nice for interviews. --- they have black curtains ---. It's located close to Union Square on 14th St, so easy access to public transportation.

If your interviewee is a VIP or needs special attention, you might call the business centers of local hotels to see about renting a small conference or banquet room. They can sometimes accomodate requests for backgrounds and certain types of equipment, but you might have to go through the A/V or banquet department, depends on the hotel. For example, the Tribeca Grand has a nice theatre / lounge in the basement.

There is a great little video tutorial that someone put together over at Exposureroom.com.

http://exposureroom.com/members/skum...633f8cc8f4e87/

Now, the video doesn't showcase your camera (it uses a Canon A1) but you get the general idea of how to set it up and how to tweak the functions. It may or may not help you. Plus, the author of the video is super helpful. Leave him a comment and he might be able to help you out.

Good luck.

Orlando Video Crew for Event Coverage

I'm looking for a video crew in the Orlando, FL area.

I've been approached by an organization holding their 60th anniversary convention at Disney world in September 2008.

I'll likely need a crew to assist me in covering this week long event.

I would like Z1U/ex1 style cameras. I'll probably need 2 available (with operators) and would like a "porta jib" style arm to use during the event and a steadicam flyer would be excellent as well. We wouldn’t need the jib or the steadicam all the time but it would be nice to have them to get some more interesting shots.

Please email me at george@tasickmedia.com and let me know your capabilities, equipment and rates. Also, if you have demos online, please link me to those in your email as well.

Thanks,

George

Film and lighting equipment needed in the UK

Hello there UK'ers. I've been asked to shoot a video for a band from Doncaster, UK. The only problem is I can't bring all my equipment from Atlanta on the plane.

I'm looking for someone with any film equipment (lighting, jib, dolly, steadicam, etc) to use for the shoot. At the very least I need a lighting kit.

I will be shooting the video with a really cool prototype from one of RED's upcoming competitors, along with some super rare lenses like an F0.85 and F0.95 prime, so the video should have a very unique look.

Because the video budget is very small, in addition to money, I can barter my web/flash design, color correction, or VFX services for use of your equipment

I designed the website for Cinevate ( http://www.cinevate.com ) and just did the cinematography, VFX, and color correction for the following 48 hour film: http://vimeo.com/1305149

also, if anyone has contacts outside of DVinfo, send em' on!

My contact info:

Email: sc@batteryfire.com

Thanks,
- Solomon

m&m&m-

thank you for your thoughtful replies.

i spent two days last week walking thru various mnahattan spaces.

i was very surprised at the quality of the spaces. frankly, for the $ i expected a bit more pizzazz, they kind u find in boutique edit and sound studios. this certainly was not the case.

and then, guess what? it turns out the client will not be needing a manhattan location. the production is now being moved to philadelphia! 3rd week of august.

anyone know of decent interview space in philly?

thanks in advance

be well

rob

need philadelphia studio/interview location

my earlier asking about nyc interview space now seems premature. my client has moved the shoot to philly.

i'm looking for a rental space that would allow me to shoot four talking head interviews. the interviews will take approx 1.5hrs. because the interviewees are rather elderly, i am scheduling two for each day. i am hoping to shoot on thurs/aug 14th & fri/aug 15th or fri/aug 15th & sat/aug 16th.

i am also looking at a place called videosmith for some rentals.

anyone with an opinion about videosmith?

anyone with a thought to lend about some interview space?

as always, thanks in advance for any info u care to share.

be well

rob

Seeking locations for short film in NC

I'm directing a short crime drama/thriller. For the film we're looking for two locations, a small home or apartment and a abandoned building. Both would need to have power provided to them. I'd also like to find the locations near either Roxboro, Durham or Raleigh. I am working with Eno River Media Productions which is a federally recognized 501C3 non-profit company. Therefor all activity can be billed accordingly as tax deductible. Myself, the cast and a professional crew from the Triangle will be the only ones at the location. For more information about ERMP please visit our website at http://www.ermp.tv
