Modest Deferred payment?....what?

Name talent, must this, must that......

Need great camera person - who is both people of color friendly and gay friendly - to shoot behind the scenes footage & interveiws on the set of a feature length movie shooting in xxxxxxx during the month of Feb. You'll have access to sets during shoots, h&mu, wardrobe, etc. - all the stuff that goes into the making of a movie. Plus you'll be responsible for principle actor interviews - that means standard doc/interview framing, lighting, and quality audio capture (lavs). You MUST be professional and able to handle yourself around name talent, both personally and technically - we cannot stress this enough.

We prefer DVX100a / 24AP shooters. Your footage will be bundled into promotional screeners and may well be used in a master DVD released for home distribution. A modest day rate will be deferred, but you should know that this movie and your footage will see the light of day. Therefore, this job is perfect for an accomplished student who is looking to improve their reel and make connections for the longterm. Can't go into all the irons in the fire at this point. Suffice it to say, we're really busy and we're all about bringing talented people along.

"No amateurs to edit my show for $25-$60 per show"

It is interesting how most of the demanders out there can't spel very wel

"Looking for aspiring Film Editors, students, producers, etc. I am in need a an editor for a new hip hop entertainment television show airing on a local XXX network. The show airs independent and national artists footage from behind the scene. The show has a good lineup of artist for the first season and is looking to sydicate in 2 other markets as early as the summer.

The job doesn't pay well at first but has the potential to pay more as the show grows. Currently the pay is just $25-60 per episode editted + school credit if needed. This will be a weekly thing. We are also in need of a hot editor to make the intro and commercial as well. We are leaning more towards someone that will serve as an intern and possible get credit from their school. EXPIERIENCE A MUST. No AMETEURS ACCEPTED YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO SUBMIT A DEMO OF YOUR WORK. If this is you please contact me immediately. I will not train anyone. You must have the capabilities to edit the video yourself and just mail it to me, or I can pick it up. You will be given full credit on the show as editor"

Here you go, children:

"We are shooting a 35mm music video for a major label Hip Hop Artist
on Monday the 31st of January. What we need are production assisstants to
aid in the 1 day film shoot.

Not much in the realm of compensation, however, if your a film/ communication
student you may recieve a copy to use for your reel. This will definitely look
good on your resume."

I like it 'cause it tells you they have a substantial budget AND they're screwing you.

Now don't get mad at me Josh because I like your wise crack comments and contributions to this and all threads. But, they aren't really demanding too much in that post. Yes, they can afford 35mm and can't pay for labor but they are up front about the job and the pay and not very demanding. The problem with posts in general is you never know what is going to happen until you get to the set even if the post was positive and promised alot. But that's another thread. What frustrates me the most is when people demand specific skills and gear for a project but have no budget. You must have this, you must have that....but I can't pay you kind of thing. I've had to force myself not to post a couple of borderline posts that were just not demanding or rediculous enough.

Speaking of bad spelling...

"ridiculous"

...that's with an i

...is the fact that this thread is the one most likely to get shut down. Teetering on the brink, you clowns!

Hmmm, funny, I offered to go to Germany and work just for beer. Not a single German answered back. I mean that is pretty cheap isn't it? I'll even learn the language if needed. But now I want a signed autograph from Franke Potente in addition to the beer. And if I can get her phone number, I'll buy my own beer.

any takers? Ich sprecken eine kliene deutsch, I think. With a southern German drawl of course.

Okay, here's one I just received today:

"I am seeking an experienced camera operator crew. There is no pay, but credit will be given. We will be traveling around the states and future pay or compensation may/may not, depending on the outcome of the first event, come into the production at a later date when traveling becomes a neccessity. It will require many weekends of work so only the seriously dedicated need apply. You also need to be efficient in editing. This will be a rather large event and the experience will be well worth the credit and whatever accomodations are earned throughout the project. This is our first production and have an extremely low budget. All crew members names will be mentioned at the end."

Another desperate producer

From the authority himself: "The film is big and commercial enough to get full paying editor work......"

"Need editor for high powered, supernatural thriller xxxxxxxxx xxxx. There is no pay, however complete credit and co-producer credit will be granted. The film was completed spring of 2002. Funds ran out and I am stuck with incomplete post.

The film is big and commercial enough to get full paying editor work for any inspiring, or established editor looking for work but do not have a reel. Please call for complete details. xxxxxx xxxxx xxx.xxx.xxxx"
