Wildlife footage needed (Deers and birds)

Greetings all.

I'm producing a local television show in central Illinois about a motorcycle/atv riding facility. One of the segments of the show talks about the facilities environmental and wildlife awareness. Basically, they understand that the land needs a balance for both the people and the animals.

On their property they have deer and various native birds, one of them being quail. It would be great to have a few shots of those animals. The problem is that in the production process we didn't have an opportunity to go out and shoot the wildlife. And at this point the leaves are off the trees and the weather is bad, so there's no way we'll be getting any footage of these animals ourselves.

If you have any HD (any format- 1080i or 720p) footage of deer or quail in a mid-western wooded area during summer or fall, I'd be interested in taking a look.

The pay is $30 per twenty second clip, and of course you'll get a credit at the end of the show.

I need to see all clips prior to any ok so please email me with links. Ideally I would like four of the deer shots and two quail shots, but other birds would be fine if their native to the mid-west. All shots must be from a tripod. Handheld footage won't be considered.

Hope you found someone already. If not, rents out the Canon XH-A1, and in Chicago also does rentals on a somewhat more pro level.

Hi. I would be interested in helping out when available. I have the XH A1 with a wide angle lens adaptor, no 35mm lens add-ons. I've shot a couple of weddings and lots of short films, I would bring a cinematic eye to your productions. Based in Somerville, about 1/2 hour from Princeton when Rt 206 doesn't suck.

South Louisiana Shooter (weddings)

My wife is shooting fewer and fewer weddings with me these days so I'm in need of a second shooter in South Louisiana. Second shooters for me are the documentary style shooter so it's not terrbily challenging work. I will provide all the gear, and cover your gas expenses on top of what I'm paying for your services. I just need you to show up, point a camera in the right direction and turn it on.

We're located in Houma, but shoot most of our weddings in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and Lafayette.

Looking for Artist/Animator

Hello all,

I'm looking for someone to help animate parts of a film I'm currently working on. It's a very short film (less than two minutes), and a combination of live action and animation.

I'm not looking for very elaborate animation, just some very simple drawings, and if you are interested or know anyone that's interested, I have do have the live action portion of the film already cut together.

Composer Needed

Good afternoon,

We have are nearing completion of a short film in Melbourne Australia. In it's rough form it has been screened already and we've been highly encouraged into submitting into festivals. The only snag so far is that we've been unable to secure some of the rights for the music we've used, hence we need a composer who would be able to provide us with a score.

The film is a sinister comedy of 10-12 minutes, with the score needed for about 7 of those minutes. Please contact me if this sounds of any interest to you.

Just added a Sony EX3 to my quiver, and have sold my portable jib. Will be adding a steadycam Pilot for my EX cameras in early 2009 as well.
