try mandy dot com. I use it a lot for my hires.

Usually when people go to make zero budget movies, they already have some 'major assets' - equipment, location, etc. The one thing people miss out on is that for 10K, you can't get good post production sound and finishing.

I suggest you first properly budget your post production - editing, color grading and master, sound, music, and then see how much you have left for your production.

Then speak to a lot of people...if you're in LA, that shouldn't be a problem.

I'm producing my first feature in the $70,000ish area right now, and I found my producing partner through doing table readings of our script. He's a local actor whom I had asked to be part of the readings. He loved the script and wanted to help make it a reality. Now he's working on it for free (though he is a SAG actor and will be playing a role, and will be getting paid his usually ULB SAG contract min rate for that duty), I can't begin to tell you what a valuable resource he has been. He has already put in countless hours of "free" work to help make this production happen, and I basically found him through networking. Get your script as tight as possible, then get it into as many hands as possible. If it's compelling material, chances are there is someone out there willing to put in the time and energy to help you realize your vision.
