Short Films?
Eric, I am a filmmaker located in Sacramento. I am interested in helping on your short film. I have a short film of my own that I am prepping. (Following "Saws" lead, making a short film that can be expanded into a feature-length film).

Need a web site upgrade
I currently have three sites. One to primarily charter fishing trips http://www.billfishadventures.com, one to promote video services, dvd sales, royalty free footage http://www.sfgmedia.com, and one to promote still images, http://www.jimmontgomery.photostockplus.com. Would like to be able to update the sites myself as more material becomes available.

Would like to incorporate all into one, have the same look through out, and have them punched up a little, maybe flash?

Be prepared to offer a quote, samples of work completed and any other considerations I may need to make an informed choice.

Something with this kind of energy http://go.inmotion.ca/samples/inMotion.asx

Looking for an Internship

This may be a shot in the dark but it might be worth a try!

I am nearing graduation from the TV Broadcasting and Video Production program at Canadore College in North Bay, Ontario.

I am the Program Representative and have the highest GPA in the course. (I'm not trying to brag but I worked hard for those honours!)

To graduate we are all responsible for finding a one month work placement in April.

I have previous work experience with MCTV North Bay, CTV, The Ontario Travel and Tourism Board, BACCHUS, Canada World Youth and the Greater Essex County District School Board.

I am particularly interested in editing. Here at school we have been using Adobe Premiere exclusively but I have been a Final Cut Pro guy for years. I am fluent in both Mac and Windows platforms.

I am looking to do my internship as an editor or editor's assistant at a network TV station or large production house. I would like to go somewhere that will want to hire me after the placement if they are happy with my work. Please do not contact me if you are looking for free work with no possibility of a full-time job.

I am completely able to relocate.

If anyone is interested in getting to know more about me please email so I can send you a proper resume. www.andypeterson.ca will be up soon as well so you can view some demo material.

Thank you very much and I hope to hear from someone soon!

Andy Peterson

P.S. Please feel free to pass my email address along if you know of someone who might be interested in helping me. Connections are everything in this business!

hey guys, check your emails!

Nick Medrano January 11th, 2006 07:16 PM

Jim, I am interested. Will send a quote as I prefer to do webwork instead of video, lol! Stand by...

Looking for After Effects guru to outsource
I am looking to outsource video graphics work to a motion graphics artist (after effects) or similar. I have experience with Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5, 24p and Adobe Encore, but do not possess the skills and time needed for decent motion graphics and title work. Therefore, I am looking for someone who can take my video reels and give it the “wow” factor. Basically this entails Hollywood-quality titles, particles, etc. that can set me apart from my local competition.

I shoot on MINIDVD 24p (Panasonic DVX100) and usually output to a progressive DVD where possible. My projects are usually local, but we sometimes do National Park work.

Possible workflow would be something like me shooting in the field and shipping off the footage for you to edit and add special effects to.

To learn more about me, you can go to my website here: southtexasfilm.com

Please send me an email if you are interested in working with me or have further questions: satxweb@gmail.com

Your post on the board was a good first effort. Follow it up with emails/letters to every ad agency and tv station near you.

Expect the same ammount of silence you got from this board, initially. That's what hunting for work is like. Don't let it discourage you.

Check for local Media organizations websites. Here in San Francisco for instance, there is BAVC.COM and FILMARTS.ORG. Theser are local filmmaking non-profits that post job listings and internships. (You may as well start there, if you are willing to locate.) There are similar orgs all around the nation, see if there is one near you.

FCP experience is great for indy shops and Ad agencies. Exect to learn AVID if you want to work in a broadcast environement.

Craigslist.com is a good place to look for jobs. So is Mandy.com

You should be checking your boards twice a day, once in the morning, once in the afternoon. Have your resume ready to email, and jump on a posting as soon as you can.

Expect silence. That's what job hunting is like.

Good luck, with hard work and persisitance I am certain you will succeed.

I don't know if I am allowed to post this source but tvjobs.com is a good place to start. i think a membership is only like $30us. they have postings not only for paid positions but they have internships listed as well. I used the site extensively before I started my own company. Hope that helps

Hello Ryan and Richard,

Thank you both for your replies, some of those sites were great.

Since my post I have been able to secure a job placement that could potentially turn into my first industry job!

It is not easy to crack into the professional work world, thankfully sites like this allow us to communicate and share resources.

Thanks again!

Denver extras needed for a party Sat, Jan 14th

I realize this is VERY late notice, but I though I'd throw it out here anyways.

The final scene in our film is a house party, and we're a little short on party-goers. It's a small house, so we really only need about 10 - 15 more people to fill the frame. The shoot will be from 9pm - Midnight in Arvada. You must be available for the entire 3 hours.

It's more of a movie shoot than an actual party, but there will be beer available for use as props, so please 21+ only. You will be asked to sign a release form stating you are old enough to drink.

I'm only posting this to DVInfo.net to maintain the quality of people and the integrity of the location. There's no pay, but there is fee beer.

If you are interested or available please shoot me an email with a phone number. We're shooting all afternoon but I will stop to check messages periodically.


All times are GMT -6. The time now is 01:49 PM.
