Detour is hiring Executive Producers in Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York City.

Detour is a totally new way to tell stories -- interactive documentary audio tours, with cinema-quality sound, that create a seamless experience of story and place. Detours reveal hidden stories, people and places at every turn.

Detour, like film, is a visual medium. The audio is in your earbuds, but the sets and characters are the real places and people all around you. This is what we’ve done in San Francisco (A walk through the history of the Black Panther Party in Oakland. A walk through the Castro with gay rights leader Cleve Jones. A walk with a life-long fisherman behind the scenes at Fisherman's Wharf. To name just a few...) Are you the perfect person to lead production in New York, Chicago, or LA?

Here is the RFP with all the details, including budget & timeline. Step one is simple online questionnaire.

Hello Community,

My friend and I have decided to take a chance on an exciting adventure walking up Ecuador on the Inca Trail to Colombia with a donkey. With a goal of learning Spanish, Salsa and South American culture the rest is left up to faith and perseverance. Our strengths are our sense of humor and ability to go with the flow and our weaknesses are knowing very little about donkeys, long term trekking and the Spanish language.

We are wannabe djembe players who have a very hard time keeping a rhythm. We have considered creating a series of Youtube videos on How NOT to Play the Djembe! However, our love of the drums keeps us playing. We plan to play our way through Ecuador, meeting and experiencing whatever comes our way! We have pondered some fitting band names and feel that "3 Asses, 2 Drums" works quite well! ;)

Anyhoo, we think our humor sarcastic personalities mixed with a splash of drama, excitement and adventure could make for a slightly interesting documentary...but maybe not. We will be leaving from Vilcabamaba, Ecuador in a couple of weeks. If anyone thinks this could make for a decent documentary let's talk!

 Aluna, I envy you for undertaking the trip, but I think rather than taking a documentary maker along, you should just take a camera along. You can film each other, it's more intimate and direct, and in the end you have some footage to show to people in the industry to actually find out whether your personalities are indeed so humorous and sarcastic that a film would be enjoyed by an audience other your own friends and family.

Hi !

I'm assistant of production for a French Production company based in Paris.

We are looking for a cameraman who could make a shooting for us in Boston next Friday the 20th.
Would you know someone who could be able to shoot an interview and some short sequences by his own? It would be great.
Thank you in advance for your help and reply.

Best regards,


Jonathan Rapoport

FOR SALE: A7S in excellent condition $1700.

I'm selling my trusted Sony A7S. It's an amazing camera. I've had it for less than a year and it's in great condition. Screen protector on the LCD since day 1. I just upgraded cameras and I can't afford to keep this as a B-cam (although I wish I could). It's unbelievable in lowlight and a real pleasure to shoot with. Cuts nicely with much more expensive cameras (F5, F55, Alexa). Package also includes:

2 x batteries
1 x charger
1 x 64 GB SDXC card
Neck strap
Port protector
USB charger and cable
Box + all original manuals and paperwork

If you're interested, please e-mail me at Thanks!

I'm not sure I agree with Koen.  Given the kind of experience you're looking for, adding the burden of documenting it yourselves might take away from it significantly.  You may want to bring a small, inexpensive camera along yourselves for recording certain moments (in your tent late at night, for example) that an outsider couldn't get.  But otherwise I'd try to entice some other adventurous soul with a camera to come along.

Let me add that I'm producing Jordan's film with him and it's a great project.  You'll also learn a lot by working with the stellar editor Melissa Neidich.

 Another option would be to do some filming on your own when you guys are on the road and use a third party wherever they are based -- hence not adding up an extra person (cost) to the actual trip.  I've seen something done in a similar way and it actually worked in a pretty neat way. I think it was "Maidentrip".
