Just an update for this:

This is an action oriented, multiple look shoot. Not your typical indie dialog short. We're trying to accomplish something different with this.

Please email if interested and/or need more information.

Indie Producer Seeks Vegas-based DP & crew familiar with Canon XL H1
Hi. I'm new to this forum.

I've been a writer for many years -- both print and screen (see my website at http://www.jneilschulman.com )-- and I decided to finally live the dream -- write, produce, and direct my own independent feature. It's a light action fish-out-of-water story in the tradition of such (big budget) features as Kindergarden Cop, Sister Act, and Miss Congeniality. The title is Lady Magdalene's. My production company's website is at http://www.jesulu.com/.

Nichelle Nichols ("Uhura" on Star Trek) and I are the exec producers, and Nichelle will be starring as one of the leads. I'm currently finishing the script, but I already have a preliminary budget and a tentative start date of May 10th for a four week shoot. We're planning to shoot entirely in and around Pahrump, Nevada, and the start date reflects our desire to shoot before it gets hot and when daylight is long. As a first time director, I'll need all the advantages I can get. I've got some great locations committed to us for the shoot, which is going to make this film look much higher budget than you'd think possible on our shoestring budget.

The production is partly financed, and Nichelle and I hope to obtain the rest of the financing necessary to complete principal photography by mid April.

We're shooting using my newly purchased Canon XL H1 -- which is what brings me to this forum.

If there are any experienced DP's, AD's, etc., already familiar with the XL H1, you'd have the inside track to working with us on this film. Since I'm not a DGA member (I am a WGA member), you don't have to be, either.

L.A. users meet and shoot THIS SUNDAY! Bring your camera!
Ok, here's the meet:

5 PM at

1202 N Alvarado St Los Angeles, CA 90026-3127



There is a musician named Phillip Roebuck playing there (no cover charge). He's a pretty amazing performer out of NYC, originally from Norfolk, VA. Check out a short video of him at:


He's built a pretty amazing setup, and both he and it are very "cameragenic." It makes for great footage.

What I'm proposing is that we all meet up and film him being interviewed and showing his setup, and film a song or two. Then I'll capture all the tapes and cut it all up to make a short documentary, slash, music video, unless someone else wants to (and I know there are lots of you who are better at it than I). Everyone who participates will get credit, and anyone can have and share the video.

If I have to pay everyone the cost of their tapes I will, and if anyone wants the tape back or wants a DVD with their footage on it I'll be happy to accomodate. Plus after his set (fairly short) we can hang out and talk and do the whole users group thing.

Obviously it would be nice if we could decide what settings those of us with DVX's would use, and comparable settings for those of us with other cameras too, so if you have any input, please pipe up ASAP. If your camera can do it, 24P is a must, but you don't have to have a 24P camera to participate.

And if you have a shallow DOF 35mm adapter, bring it! I'm bringing mine and my lenses but I don't know that I'll use it for sure.

Enough talk, let's get together - AND let's shoot some tape!

Steev Dinkins March 10th, 2006 04:47 PM

I'm there man. I'll be bringing my HVX200! See you then!

Alexander Berezovsky March 10th, 2006 05:21 PM

Thanks for the invitation but I won't be able to make it :(
Always open to invites though!

Need some one with a HD-100U In NYC
Hey, I am in need of some one in MYC to possibly shoot some stock footage with their JVC HD-100U. I am doing a non-funded project, and as such don't have the money to fly to New York to grab just a couple of shots. I actually also need some help with the legality of these, as I need a few shots from Grand Central Station, not much just something to throw in to show that my hero started out in New York on the train. Any suggestions or takers?
