XL-2 Camera Ops for South By Southwest (Austin, TX)


My wife is a musician and is hosting an official SXSW party at this year's festival. I'm going to be there taping the even for a vodcast and am looking for two owner/ops. Here's what I'm looking for:
- Own a Canon XL-2
- Be comfortable shooting on sticks or handheld (I'll give a detailed shooting assignment prior to the event...if you prefer sticks or handheld, let me know and I'll try and accommodate you.
- Don't mind shooting in a live music environment (a little loud, and people drinking and smoking (can you smoke in bars in Austin?)
- Be comfortable adjusting levels on the camera to compensate for possible lowlight.
- Any ancillary equipment would be great (a cam light, a boom mic, etc)
- Be available 3/16/07 from 2:30 - 6:30 pm.
I'm able to pay $100 per camera op and you'll be fed and there's free beer that you're welcome to. The 4 hours includes setup and breakdown of your gear.

If you're interested just shoot me an email, or reply to this thread.

Here's a link to the event.

Hi Vito,

I am not directly answering to your post at the moment but if you need some help for the events you have to do (either in editing or shooting) i might be interested. I am living in Montreal as well and 'till march 19th(going in thailand for 2 month at that point) i have some free time between some basic video workshop that i am doing with kids.

I have a GL2 and a Rodevideomic, tripod, dolly and i am editing on Adobe premiere pro(1.5) at home even though i am also train on Final Cut Pro.

Oh yeah, i am also a native french speaker if that could be of any use for the events you are covering.

Send me email if that sound interesting :

? /PAE switch

William, I run xp home and was wondering about this post:

I run XP Pro on a 32-bit system with 4GB of memory. I use a /PAE switch in the boot.ini file which allows all 4GBs to be recognized and used. However, by going from 2GB to 4GB I only clocked a 10-15% increase in rendering times - not really enough to justify the cost of the memory.

I also run xp and have 4GB of memory but can't use it. How did you do this?

Do a quick google search and you'll find tons on info on how to use the Physical Address Extension switch (/pae) in XP. You'll have to mod your boot.ini file.

Good luck.

Open Casting Call SouthEastern Connecticut


The Southeastern Connecticut Filmmakers organization is
creating a digital database of all on-camera talent in the
CT/RI/MA area.
Everyone is welcome and we encourage new talent to

Because of the diversity of these projects in size and scope,
there is no specific type, age, or gender that we are looking
for. The productions will be on-going throughout the year and
since we have quite a few projects (short films / commercials /
music videos) on the slate we invite all those that are

So come on down and spend a few minutes with our team. If
you have a monologue, we would like to record you on camera
along with a dry reading from various scenes that have been
selected by our directors.

If you do not have a monologue, then we would just like a few
minutes to chat and get to know you and what characters you
inspire to play. Along with the video taping, we will also take a
digital photograph of you to keep on file… but if you have a
resume & head shot…please bring it.

The auditions will be held at: 325 State Street. The building
is next to the Garde Art Center at the corners of Meriden &
State street in downtown New London. Right across the
street from Hanafins Pub. If needed, use the directions at
bottom. Please arrive early so you can find suitable parking.
There is no appointment needed… the auditions will be
arranged on first come first serve basis. Please allow 30 – 45
minutes for the audition. We will have two rooms running
simultaneously and each audition will last from 10 – 15

The dates and times for the auditions are:

Children are invited as well. We recommend for all parents to
aim for the earlier hours.. And again, we would like to meet
with the child and his/her parents for approx. fifteen
minutes.Even if you have no acting experience in front of a
camera, or maybe you've only modeled for a photo shoot,
please stop by. As you know this business is run by
relationships and we would like to meet with as many local
actors as possible.
Thank you for your time. We look forward to meeting you!

From New Haven Ct.
From Hartford Ct.

I have my own equipment and can travel a bit. Not looking for pay - just an interesting project to let my creative juices flow. Also have fairly extensive editing and compositing skills.

Email if interested! Thanks in advance...
What kind of work are you looking for? I (we) have a outdoors show on cable and we are always in the need for a good camera man/woman. We do some :30sec adds as well as our 30 min show. If you would be interested in filming more reality type video drop me a line.

Manhattan Camera Op for Thursday 3/8

Hey Everyone,

I'm looking for someone who could really help me out this Thursday night (3/8) to shoot a theater performance. The show starts at 8pm and should run about 40 minutes.

I need someone who has a Canon XH-A1 (1st camera will be this model,) XH-G1, Sony HVR-Z1U (or like models) maybe with a shotgun mic, and of course sticks, to shoot a second position master shot of a short play. I may consider someone with a 24p Panasonic DVX100, but I'm not sure yet as I would like the project to be shot in high definition.

This is a favor for a friend, so I cannot pay nearly as much as one would be looking for. I'll provide entry, tape stock to shoot on and $50 for your transportation or whatever. Of course, I can also provide you with the footage if you would like to use it for a reel. If this works out maybe we can continue to work together on real projects.

The performance is at a small blackbox in New York City in the 50s between 8th and 9th Aves. Please respond only if you're serious and are available this Thursday night from about 7:30-9pm, you can post here and I will contact you, or e-mail me personally.

Thanks, Brian
