NJ Krupp Dynasty Author Seeks Doc Filmmaker-

Hello-
I'm from Monmouth County, NJ but I'm not a filmmaker. I'm an author who is seeking a documentary filmmaker to make a documentary from my book, 'The Cannon King's Daughter' (Barnes and Noble online store).

In 2008, and with the help of three elderly relatives, I disclosed the unrecorded banishment of my great-grandmother from Germany's Krupp steel and munitions dynasty. My book is the result of the investigation.

The findings of my book have been featured in three german newspapers, including der Spiegel- the second-most respected news magazine in Germany. Go to my author page and read much more about my findings at www.davidstroebel.com.

I hope to be working with some of you very soon...

Dave

I'm looking to buy a Canon C300 (original, not Mark II). It could be body only, or a package (though most likely no lenses). Anyone looking to sell, or know someone who is? I'll probably be purchasing in the next few days.

I'm selling my Sony EX3. I hate to part with the camera, but I just purchased an FS7 and can't justify keeping both.

Sony PMW EX3:
This has been my doc workhorse for the last couple years, and it's still in great shape. Only minor cosmetic damage -- all the buttons, switches, etc. are in working condition, the lens is flawless.

Cards and Batteries:
2 32GB SXS cards, 2 8GB SXS cards, 2 SDHC SXS Adapters (SDHC Cards not included)
1 Sony BP U60
1 Sony BP U30
1 Kapaxen BP U60

Shoulder Mount:
This can be used with or without the zacuto weight. I personally find the camera balances much better with the weight attached. I also have the original Sony shoulder piece as well, if that's your preference.

Sonnet Echo Pro ExpressCard/34 Thunderbolt Adapter:
Significantly faster than transferring via USB 2.0. Saves a TON of time.

Cases:
Laser cut pelican case, fits everything (shoulder mount needs to be removed to fit properly). Great if you have to check on a plane.
Portabrace: fits everything as is, good for carrying on flights.

Additional accessories: 
Original Sony battery charger/AC adapter
Sony remote
SXS USB 2.0 card reader
77mm UV filter

 

Asking $6500 for the whole kit, plus shipping. Offers welcome. Local delivery availble in NYC.

If interested, shoot me an email at kyle@bullmoose.nyc

Seeking multiple fixers.

I have been commissioned to do a documentary in five countries for ITVS about its WGLG program and am still looking for fixers in Peru, Bangladesh and India for fall shoots. I do not know the exact regions yet, but it would be helpful to get some first reliable contacts in those countries. Any lead appreciated! Thanks so much.  -Koen
