Crew Needed For Worthwhile Doc on Interesting Subject

I am looking for someone to produce, direct, shoot, light, edit, distribute, and publicize a documentary about myself. I have no money so you would have to come up with that too. I would give you 47% of whatever funds you raise. You would probably end up doing most of the work, because I am very busy doing other things.

As I am indeed a very interesting subject, this documentary will undoubtedly go to major film festivals such as Sundance. I am a very busy person, so please do not bother me unless you have made a PROFITABLE documentary that has gone to Sundance, or similar. (No, Telluride does not count.) You may bring your 24p camera, but not your Hollywood attitude!

This job would be a great opportunity for someone who is looking for a great opportunity. It would also be a good job for someone who doesn't need to work for a living, but would like to work anyway. Those looking to "pay for experience" are welcome to apply. Please do not reply unless you have a thick-skin. Crying on the job will be considered grounds for termination. Male applicants should be forewarned that they might be required to donate sperm as the need arises.

I would like to get started on this ASAP. It needs to be "in the can" for my 10th high school reunion in April. (Go Panthers!)

NOTE: Because this posting will generate a large response, and because I am very busy, I will not have time to read 500 full resumes. Please take the 6 most relevant words from your resume and attach it as Power Point presentation, using no more than one word per slide. Using the words “motivate", "motivation", or "motivating” will invalidate your application. Bonus points to anyone who points out how interesting I am. More bonus points if you know me--I'll probably just end up hiring people I know anyway.


A little humor for Feb 1st. *smile* I found this at

I started reading your post and I was thinking "what a weird dick he turned out to be". lol!

Hey, regarding your "real" post -- $250 for all that gear and you? If so, in the future I might be calling you...sounds like a good deal. Also, I think you need that big smile on your post there. :)

Did you see this Shannon? It's a potential gig for you:
