Dave that would be awesome. So long as you don`t mind trying a few things I wouldn`t mind trying a few out in the film :) It is an over the top comedy, so perhaps the WA lens may be even better heh.

Actually, Gary, please do apply if you're interested.

I was focusing on having wide coverage for timezones, but wasn't intending to restrict to US-only.

What date is the event? Personally, I have a Canon XL2 and know of others that have one. If you are looking for rental equipment, I can put you in contact with the main film productions companies in PR.

Houston TX Shooter Wanted

First off, this is not a Craigís List post. You would be paid well if youíre hired.

One of my clients is looking for a shooter in the central Houston TX area. The job would call for availability when needed, on short notice, over the course of the next 4 or 5 months. This is a great opportunity for a one-person production outfit.

The client requests that you shoot in HDV widescreen, recorded to miniDV tape, using a pro level camera. You should be competent in your video recording skills, able to capture good clean audio, a good listener, and able to carry out the directives of the client.

The subject of the project is the restoration process of a classic automobile. Youíll essentially be documenting certain activities during the restoration process. The project is expected to span over the next 4 or 5 months. There will be NO set shooting schedule. You may shoot for a couple (or several) hours one day and then not again for days or weeks. Then again, you might shoot everyday for awhile. As I said, there is no set shooting schedule. Itís a matter of being available on short notice (at least a day or two) when the restorer is doing something that needs to be videotaped.

Youíd be responsible for recording raw video and audio. So, you need a camera and audio capture gear. No editing would be required. However, you may be asked to burn a DVD copy of the raw footage so the client can view it. All video and audio would be turned over to the client who retains rights to all recordings.

Basically, if youíre a competent videographer with some experience, are a good listener, possess good interpersonal skills, you could likely handle the job.

My role here is merely to help my client find a qualified videographer in the Houston area. Any contracts, negotiations, payments, etc. would be between you and the client. I would not be involved in that at all.

I can tell you that the client is video savvy and knows what a fair price is and whatís overpriced. I think they pay pretty damn good. Of course, thatís all subjective.

If youíre interested, drop me an email at

Please supply an equipment list (of what you will be using for video and audio capture), previous professional experience (and professional education if applicable), and your rates for shooting the raw footage. You could include your editing rate too in case they want to know. Remember too. In pricing, they would rather have an all-inclusive type price. That is, they expect that you are going to use a camera and some audio recording device. Give them your rate using that gear. They are not into a bunch of different prices based on a bunch of different gear packages. They want it shot HDV to miniDV cassette and good clean audio. Let them know what you charge to deliver what they ask for.

I will pass along the information to the client and they will decide who they want to speak more with about the project. The car is in Houston now and the restoration process will begin shortly so don't waste time. Respond now if interested. Next week may very well be too late.

Thatís about it. Email me for additional info.

35mm shooter in South Florida??

I'm in Broward county and would like to get together with someone who is experienced shooting with the 35mm adaptors. I shoot with a Canon H1 and A1, and have been practicing a lot with the Letus extreme and Nikon primes. I'm at the place where I need some hands on help from someone with a lot more experience than I have. Obviously I'll compensate .
