Local filmmaker Scott Clevely is actively seeking crew members for an upcoming shoot scheduled for Summer 2013.
All of the details (and much more!) can be found on his blog at:
Or to save time, I’ve posted the original posting below. Let the film magic begin!
FILM CREW NEEDED!
Just as important as finding the right actors to make our short film we need to find the right film crew. We’re looking for a few good people from Waterloo Region and Guelph to play some key roles in helping us carry out the vision of our script.
ARE THEY PAID POSITIONS?
I firmly believe in paying artists and technicians for their time. We will be raising funds through crowd source funding and we have an application in for an arts grant and it’s from these funds that we will be paying honorariums. We just won’t know how much we have until the fundraising is complete.
WHEN’S THE SHOOT?
It’ll be a three day shoot this summer. We’re still trying to lock down the production dates.
WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
To draw storyboards and help communicate my camera shot sequences, especially the action scenes, to the film crew and the visual effects supervisors.
Who will help Erik O’Neill, our Director of Photography, execute his lighting plan during production.
Also to help Erik O’Neill and the Gaffer diffuse and cut the light as well us move the camera dolly and help with the camera crane.
Need a good audio engineer that records the production sound on set at the time of shooting. We have they gear, just need a good experienced sound mixer.
An artist who would be responsible for designing the overall visual appearance of our short film from wardrobe to set design. (This is a cool job for sure and I look forward to working with a production designer on this film.)
A person responsible for translating the production designer’s vision of the movie’s environment into a set which can be used for filming. There are a couple sets that need to be built, including a cliff face which will likely be made out of 2 x 4’s and a treatment to make it look like rock. This set designer needs to be handy and creative with some experience with set design.
A person who’ll help choose and designs the costumes for our film.
A person responsible for maintaining our actors’ hairstyles during filming.
The person who arranges and plans stunts with a focus on safety. There is a fight scene between two actors, another scene where an actor will be in a harness so he floats and a fall onto a crash mat.
This person will tracks which parts have been filmed, how the filmed scenes deviated from the script; they also make continuity notes, creating a lined script. Some filmmaker experience is needed here as it’s a critical position.
We also we have some unpaid production assistants and for these positions no experience is required. Just a willingness to learn.
