Isn't anything underground, by definition, the very OPPOSITE of something that'll give you great exposure?

Okay, this isn't even that bad. . .I just find it funny these guys have been posting for several months, and apparently no one's bitten, or thinks this is a cool hip idea, except for them.

I'm looking for 3 minutes of footage for the beginning of an open-sourced film project. Not a scam, doesn't cost anything, you'll get all the credit... blah blah blah... It's an idea that's getting a lot of exposure and media interest - we're currenlty looking for the opening three minutes to this feature film.

Josh, it looks like they're expanding their crew!

Hmmm, maybe next they're going to ask for the shooters to wear leather and chains?


Female wanted to shoot porn for fun

Are you a female with an interest in shooting porn? I am shooting a short scene this Friday nightin Manhattan. I need a woman to shoot. I already have a guy I just wanted to mix it up a bit and have a woman shooting on the set. Now I will admit that because this is a no budget production, there is no pay. The only ones makimg money are the girls in the scene. We are looking for an open minded female who just wants to watch and shoot. If you are out there please get back to us with contact info and the words "Female Shooter" as your subject.

this is in or around New York, NY

Compensation: none - sorry

Here's the deal. I did this before and i hope it wporks for you. On Friday Feb 24 I will be shooting my Truth or Dare porn film. In this we get five guys and three female porn stars in a room and have them play a hardcore game of sexual truth or dare.

We did this last week and had a ball. I need someone with a DV camera willing to come and do the shoot for us. I can not pay this person because we do not have a budget. All money goes to pay the girls. If you are at all interested in doing the shoot and if you have your own DV cmera please get back to us. Be sure to put the word"shooter" as your subject. We really hope to hear from you.

How much trouble will I get in for asking if there could be a double meaning to the phrase "female shooter?"

I suspect 'Hollywood' again hears a computer term, and screws it up in execution. They decided 'open-source' was a better term for no-lo. What they missed is that 'open-source' means they make the entire project available for others to edit. Does not seem to present itself that way.

Either that George, or the scenes for the film are open to many people... like the Lady X series.

Borrowed Avid..........Dumb Ass

etc., etc., etc.



"I am looking to borrow (or if necessary - rent) someone's Avid Mojo in order to complete a project I am working on. I am willing to give credit on my documentary film which has been accepted into several festivals already."

I think, in the hollywood project's defense, it is open source in the way Keith mentioned. I just thought it was amusing that no one had bitten.

"Camera and Sound needed for Movie about an Orgy
Reply to: gigs-136488615@craigslist.org
Date: 2006-02-23, 7:44PM EST




We are shooting this weekend and are looking for a shooter and a sound person.

We already have one shooter, but we'd love to make this a two-camera shoot. We are shooting on a Panasonic DVX100B and are looking for someone who can shoot handheld with a Panasonic DVX100 series camera.

We need a sound person who can handle a room with 10 actors. We are going to record sound on the camera, but would love to hire a sound person with their own equipment that can record and mix live multiple tracks.

Yes, the movie is an improv comedy about an orgy that never gets started. There is NO sexual content, but there is explicit dialogue. Our production company produces one feature length project every month, so this is an opportunity to join our network and be part of future projects.

* this is in or around NYC/NJ
* no -- it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests
* Compensation: deferred payment/profit sharing "
