There are some abandoned buildings in Durham in the area near the prison.

In Hillsborough, there is a disused Wal-Mart that has been sitting empty for a few years. Not abandoned as such but looks that way.

For a small home, I have a property in Raleigh sitting empty but furnished.

(The creek on our property runs into the Eno...)

Wedding videographer wanted in Chicago, 11/27-11/29

This is for an Indian wedding - a 3 day event but I'm not sure if the client needs videography for all 3 days though. I do both video and photot. However since I was a hired to do the photography, I will not be able to do the video. Please let me know your rate and website and contact info. I'll fwd them to my client.

NYC Film Crew for SAG Feature

Hi all,

I am DP’ing a SAG independent feature film in September, with a great team of people behind it. There is distributor interest in it, along with some “star” names in it. I am still in need of several key crew positions that need to be filled (the people I normally work with are not available during the shooting timeframes).

I am looking for:

1st Assistant Camera
Best Boy Electric
Key Grip
Sound Mixer/Recorder

These positions are PAID. Of course, meals are provided as well. Shooting is 13-15 days in September into October, all in New York City.

If you are interested, please forward a resume and definitely an online reel to

I will begin interviews over the next week or so.

1st Assistant Camera:

Someone who is proficient in focus pulling, though the shots aren’t anything too difficult. Will be using a P+S Technick Mini35 w/CinePrimes


Extensive knowledge lighting for 1/3” HD cameras necessary. I am proficient in this as well, so I will also help here. Also, must understand how to light large areas of space outside as we will be shooting in blocked off NYC streets at night.

Best Boy Electric:

Will mainly assist the Gaffer with lighting setup/execution.

Key Grip/Grip:

Will also assist the Gaffer/Best Boy Electric with lighting setup/configurations. Will manage the grip package.

Sound Mixer/Recorder:

Will work with Boom Op to capture up to 4 channels of audio per scene. Looking for someone owning his or her own mixer/equipment. I have some audio gear too, so can discuss what will work.

Yang Wen,

Good to see Chicago represented! I'm currently available for those dates - you can see at my website here: I have some basic pricing info and a couple of samples listed, and can send out DVD copies as well if they'd like some samples that way.

The last Indian wedding I shot was a couple years ago for Ben Lynn, also in Chicago.

Videosmith is great. I've rented from them many times without any problems whatsoever and they have a good selection of gear.

Wish I had some advice for you on a studio. Center City Film and Video on Walnut St. has a small studio I've used before, but I'm not sure if they rent out the space without a crew, but they might. They are not cheap though.

Another option would be to simply rent a hotel room or conference room at a hotel. Especially if all you are doing is talking head interviews. You could also look into renting a furnished office for a day or a conference room from a place that rents executive office space. You might have better noise control is a hotel though.
