Aspiring Cinematographer/DP for Experimental Feature Film Length Web Series
*Please note that all cast and crew positions are strictly volunteer for this production.
Looking for a creative, up-and-coming DP to film for our experimental project. This is a shoestring budget production. Cast and crew must be non-union. Our goal is to create a relatable story– a thriller about unrequited love. We will not be looking for theatrical release or distribution deals when the film is complete– We’re going straight to social media and will release our story in mini-episodes.
Since there’s no pay and no empty promises of distribution or red carpet premieres, this gig is probably a better match for someone who’s either just starting out– or who simply misses being on-set during COVID and wants to be back in a creative environment. We will be listing the film on IMDb and will credit the cast and crew.
If you’re interested, no need to tell us your incredible list of equipment. We’re not looking for the latest RED camera or $5,000 drone. We’d rather see a few examples of your past/recent work and hear about your passion and vision for creating something new.
Please mention if you’re familiar with the recent, popular REELS videos on Instagram showing photographers doing simple, low-budget hacks using the cameras on their Android phones– techniques like pouring water on the ground or using a mirror to create unique reflections, for example. We’d love to integrate those effects into our story. If you’re local and would be interested in volunteering your DP skills, we’d love to hear from you.
Our story: ‘Unrequited’ spans 120+ years. Three lead actors will each play five unique characters– one per time period. Our story begins in 1895 and focuses on the main characters– the story then jumps through time– showing new incarnations of our characters during the Roaring 20’s, the 60’s, the 90’s and finally, current day, 2022 where things have changed for everyone in a big way.
