Need crew for film. Shooting on HD100
Where: Toronto
When: March 24, 25, 26, 27, 2006
Writer/Director - Jonathan Robbins
DP: Tim Dashwood
Project Info: http://www.mojoprofilms.com/exlover.html

Crew positions still available:
2nd Camera assistant (Clapper/loader)
Camera Assistant for B Camera/DTE capture tech (iMac)
Swing Grips
EPK camera operator (DVX100a)
Behind the Scenes Photographer (Nikon D70 & Pentax iST)

I'm shooting a short film next weekend with at least 2 JVC HD100 cameras (for the big shootout) and possibly a Canon XLH1 for good measure.
The film has a brilliant script... one of the best I've read in a long time. It kind of reminds me of True Romance, with a hint of Pulp Fiction.

I've have filled most of the key positions already with friends who are pros in their field, but we're still looking for some helping hands. If you have experience in specific areas that's great, and if not, maybe you'll learn some new tricks from professionals willing to share them.

If you are only available on one or two of our shoot days, that's fine too. We will have quite a few locations with different needs on different days.

This is a very low budget production, so we are seeking volunteer crew members. However, you will be fed and most locations are very close to TTC stations.

Please email me if you are interested. dvinfo@timdashwood.com

Scottish DV Artists Collaboration Spring 06'
If you have a day or two to spend with our crew, I could use your DV camera talents. Below, I will be glad to tell you a bit about the project. First, I will need some background from you so I can better figure out how best you can help this film project. If you have filmmaking experiences let me know, then I can link you with others on location in Scotland. The next step will be to formulate a plan to proceed at the location filming. I have a script as far as media needed, and interview questions for the specific locations. One collaborator, has DOP film experience, and is presently researching the Aberdeen site. Here is my release; A call for collaboration. I'll look for your reply.
I have an ongoing search to assemble two location DV film crews in Scotland. I have these filming needs to complete a historacle documentary about the Camphill Communities origins. The locations are in Aberdeen at the Newton Dee Camphill and the Blair Drummond Camphill near Stirling. Camphill was begun by Karl Koenig in 1939, along with a small group of refuges escaping the Nazis. The Camphill's were developed as a curative environment for the mentally handicapped that was inclusive, and explored very progressive methods of education and community living. I became interested, here in the States, after visiting the Kimberton Hills community located in Pennsylvania, U.S.A. In 2002, I made a personal visit and filming began then of the Camphill bakery and other programs. That footage, as well as a recient photography session, just completed, have completed the U.S. media necessary for this film. The script for the film developed from that point, and that required the need for the Scottish Camphill history in film. The budget does not exist to pay for my travel to Scotland. So I began using the WWW to locate film collaboration. I have a film collaborator from Cumbernauld, her name is Vicky Bodane. She says she is 20 min. between Glasgow and Stirling. Does her name ring a bell? Vicky has offered to help with narration and a possible musicians interview at FM Clyde 1 in Glasgow. Two Scottish musicians have also given me a positive interest in song offerings and I'm trying to book them on the "Live Sessions" for an acoustic set. I'd like to make available some promotion for them, for their help in the film. Perhaps you have heard of them? Kate Cassidy (I believe she is from Glasgow) and David Leonard of Spokers Loan. Kate is well known throughout Scotland, and Europe. She has such a beautiful voice, mostly used in rock venue. I've asked her for some lighter acoustic numbers to be considered for the opening film scenes in Aberdeen. David has done the folk scene there in Scotland. I will be using his number called; " We've got everything we need" from his album. I'm also looking for a crew to film their casual musical duet jamming, and a film shoot at that radio station "sessions" venue if it jells. Get back soon, I'd like to firm up the location crews to begin as weather warms up.
Adios for now,
Christo Aaron

I have two voice narrators who live in Scotland...
Hello Spike,
I'm working with two wonderful people in Scotland at the present. Tell me more about what you are looking for as far as languages etc.

Robert M Wright March 18th, 2006 11:30 AM

Are you looking for a male or female voice? (or both?)

Tim Dashwood March 18th, 2006 11:52 AM

Sorry Nate,

I didn't realize you had cross posted over here until I had moved and left a redirect in the HD100 forum. I figured you would get more views that way, but you were already one step ahead of me.

The redirect is still in the HD100 forum.

Portland, Oregon?
I am posting this again in the hope that there might be some new members since I last did. I am looking for a general production partner. Someone interested in narrative film, short form or long, for festivals.

Particularly someone who is aware of the constraints of micro budget movie making. Too many people I talk to want to make the next matrix and think they can do it with their HandyCam.

Actually, anyone at all who is interested in film in the city, let me know. I'd like to start a project soon, and I can't do casting alone. I'd just look creepy.


Joe Lumbroso March 20th, 2006 02:53 PM

Hi DJ,

If you'd like to drop me an email, I do low, low-budget film-making here Portland. I also used to work at a local casting company. I can't guarantee we'll be a good match but check some of my links, see what I do and drop me a line.
