Any EX1 or EX3 owners in the Kansas City Area.

Early next year I may be needing an additional cam for a project. Would like to know if there was any videographers with an EX1 (or EX3) in the Kansas City area.

Or if there was anywhere (anyone) I could rent from.

Calling all JVC HDxxx owners within the new york area... paid gig

I am currently the DP for a hidden camera show, and they are putting together a DVD of their show.

They need extra camera men with the same camera to shoot with me...
we are shooting with HD110's but 200 and 250 is fine...

Its all being shot in 30p hd

Pay is $200 a day per camera man. You should be at ease with hiding behind things and getting into difficult spaces to hide yourself and the camera.

We are shooting Thursday-Sunday in NYC, some locations we have full control over, and others are completely run-and-gun shooting.

Please send an E-mail to with your contact info, if you would like to be a part of this....

Its actually really fun to shoot for this, because the gags are very funny, and on top of it all, you get paid!

$200 per day per cameraman
New York City
Camera needed:
JVC HDXXX cameras
Days needed:
Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, (possible Monday)
Call times:
Usually 8AM, except for the controlled night shoots.

Just curious Giuseppe but is that a standard daily rate for a cameraman with camera in New York? or is this specifically a 'low budget' thing?

I'd personally say that 200 dollars sounds a bit cheeky when you want the cameraman AND his kit for a day!

You should expect to pay that price alone for just the camera hire in Europe.

Please excuse my ignorance if I obviously have no idea what US rates are. I get very protective over crew rates here as too many companies try their luck with crew and kit knowing that people need the money so will accept lower rates. Apologies if this is not the case, which I'm sure it isn't!

Do you have insurance? - Seriously, not said in jest or are your camermen on their own as stringers?

Grip/PA needed in Tucson 10/13/08

I'll be shooting some scenics in Tucson on 10/13/08, and I need a reasonably experienced grip to help heft and carry, and probably to pickup an extra tripod, some sandbags and a reflector prior to the shoot. Please reply soon as this is obviously right around the corner.

I wouldnt mind starting a network of EX1 / 3 users in KC.
Also looking for renting equipment
*as it stands I'd have one more operator than camera*

But I'm looking to shoot a large piano recital and hope to be able to budget three Ex1s, currently have two.

This is not a standard rate, this is a "low budget thing" but since it is a steady few days in a row it kind of makes up for itself I believe.

Just to make things clear, I am not running this project, I was just asked to help out to see if there are any more JVC HD camera men who are interested in the gig. I dont believe they have insurance, I believe this is just a quick low budget shoot for the week. All I know is my first check cleared so I know they are legit haha. All detailed questions about the project would be sent to the production manager and she would be able to answer more questions.

So again if you guys are interested, I think for a few days they might even need a 3rd cameraman, so replay if interested.

Hi guys.

I'm looking for a VO artist on the 21st Oct in Bristol Uk (Wildscreen festival). I will be making a 2 minute short doc and the VO has to be done on the day and at the festival. The film will be screened at the festival and may get further exposure by the sponsors.

Stuart you are right on. That's also what I charge for camera hire alone. The economy isn't that bad here yet, but trolling can always pull out a few students and wannabe's , like it or not.

No offense Guiseppe, but Good Luck!

Moved to Helping Hands.

While the offered rate is probably way too low to attract seasoned professionals, it does seem like a good opportunity for a students or beginners to get some experience and a little pocket change on the side. Good luck,
