Minimal Camera gear for independent productions Not long ago I wrapped an independent feature that was shot in Morocco with a DoP I had already worked for on two more movies. From the very first contact with the production company, it was quite clear that it was a low budget movie, therefore it was mandatory to squeeze the most out of every single euro in order to make the shooting possible according to the schedule, without the need to do extra hours and such. As usual, I advised the director of photography on the gear list, try to get everything I considered necessary and making a separate list of devices and accessories that could be considered dispensable, hoping that finally the production company would come to an agreement with the rental house. Since the prep time had been very short, there was a lot of information about the shooting I wasn’t aware of, and now that I came back I would like to share what I’ve learn from this experience. Speaking about gear and accessories, I realized that there are some of them that are wrongly considered “fancy”, while it’s precisely in low budget productions when they become more handy and/or essential.

WRITER/PRODUCER/VISUAL DESIGNER SEEKING DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY WITH HER/HIS OWN EQUIPMENT WHO CAN EDIT AND PRODUCE — TO PARTNER ON PRODUCTIONS Hello everyone! Thank you, in advance, for taking the time to read my post. If it interests you I look forward to hearing from you... if it doesn't then I simply wish you amazing success on all your projects. I cheer for everyone to get their TV and film projects made! Okay...I'm a writer and producer, and a visual designer. I have multiple completed feature scripts and many more ideas/treatments. I have an open invitation for a pitch meeting with an Emmy winning TV producer who has produced hit after hit. I have received extremely positive feedback and praise on my feature scripts from other producers, known/recognizable TV actors, as well as Emmy nominated writers. Here is an excerpt from my recent thriller script feedback from one Emmy nominated writer who is also a director and a Sundance Grand Jury Prize nominee: " It’s a really well done story and has a lot of box office potential ... It is often thrilling, suspenseful, and downright creepy — all ingredients you need in this genre. You have built a world that feels authentic and isolated, which helps enormously. I think audiences who love to be scared will eat this up. " I quoted them only to assure you that I can write well, as I know you don't want to waste your time anymore than I do. In addition to good feedback I was recently recommended to a lit agent by a couple of producers to be the screenwriter for the adaptation of an autobiographical book about a highly publicized national story. There are many projects I want to develop and shoot, but I need the right partner with whom I can grow with, someone with talent, a similar mindset, and equipment who can shoot and edit, and produce as well. I'm seeking someone who is extremely serious and 0% flaky. I have low budget, low-mid budget, and no-budget feature film projects we can discuss, reality TV projects, even YouTube possibilities. A few are pretty ready to go, some need more development, and many are just loglines or ideas we can build out. I co-produced a feature film (2010) that won a few festivals and had a small theatrical release before going on to its TV release. I have many years in the industry/LA and know some indie directors, distributors, DPs, producers, Emmy nominated writers and EPs, hair & makeup keys, production designers, other great crew, etc. I have good instincts, can think creatively in the moment, have ideas on how to structure funding to shoot, and am excellent at casting as I know what good acting looks and sounds like because I was conservatory trained and acted professionally in the past. In addition I have a B.A. in graphic design and have years of professional experience in NYC, DC, and LA designing posters, one-sheets, brochures, logos, etc. so we'll never have a one-sheet that looks like someone's dog made it in Microsoft Word. I am seeking someone who wants to commit to a real partnership of collaboration and focus on making product that will be captivating and commercially successful, and have a lot of fun as we go. If this sounds like the partnership you are looking for and you are a talented Director of Photography with your own equipment who can edit and produce, please send me an email with a little bit about yourself as well and a link to some of your work. Thanks for reading and for your consideration. I'm looking forward to getting projects DONE! :) EMAIL ME AT THE FOLLOWING EMAIL ADDRESS: email@example.com
