Seeking Camera/Sound Tech for Doc Shoot in Brighton, England August 2, 2011

I'm asking for some help locating a skilled videographer with a decent light/camera/sound kit. I'm in search of a pro who'd be willing to shoot this interview on a deferred payment basis. Shooting/sound credit assured.

The job consists of framing, lighting and sound-recording an hour-long interview on location at the manager's home. The whole job, from setup to strike, can be completed within 2 hours. Can someone please help me locate a jazz-loving professional camera/sound/lights artist who would be up to the task?

If so, they may call me directly anytime at +1 917.975.5940

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Best wishes to all,

Dièry Prudent, producer

Hello D-Worders,

I'm seeking two DPs for a documentary shoot in Washington DC for this Saturday and Sunday (7/30 & 7/31). The right people should be experienced in shooting fly-on-the-wall verite footage as well as candid interviews. Canon 7Ds, Canon 5D Mark IIs, Panasonic AF100s, or equivalent cameras are all of interest. DPs should also have a simple sound kit (ie. Zoom recorder for DSLRs, wireless lavs, shotgun mic, tripod). If you're interested or can recommend some good folks, please email me at: suzanne@flickerflacker.com

Thanks!
Suzanne

In reply to Jon Fordham's post on Wed 13 Jul 2011 :

I had the privilege of taking Jon Fordham's seminar this evening and wanted to comment on it for those considering taking it.

I highly recommend taking it and feel that I learned a tremendous amount in a very short time. Jon and Evan were extremely detailed, thorough, and generous in their answers and explanations. We covered a wide arrange of topics, including post workflows for DSLR cameras, numerous codecs/formats and their specific limitations, preparing media for maximum usage and distribution (and not simply one function/outlet) as well as general media management-related topics at each stage of production.

Although the description outlines the topics that Jon and Evan (who also ran the seminar as well) covered, I was also asked ahead of time if I had particular postproduction workflow questions. I spoke on the phone with Evan and described the parameters of two ambitious projects that I have coming up in January.

I was very excited when I came in when I learned he had consulted several colleagues and had detailed information specific to my situation that was incredibly helpful and illuminating.

It is clear that both Jon and Evan are very excited about what they do and this definitely comes across in how they present material and respond to questions.

I have taken several other postproduction workshops in the past year on various topics and of varying quality, but this was one of the rare workshops that pushed away from the sort of Procrustean approach to technical aspects of filmmaking and postproduction.

I have also made a big effort to learn FCP more thoroughly as well as Avid and Premier (as several projects have required Premier) and this workshop definitely built on that knowledge and provided a deeper, much more nuanced understanding of concepts I thought I knew.

I can imagine that more seasoned postproduction professionals would benefit even more out of this workshop with Jon because of the his and Evan's breadth of experience and willingness to engage with a project's specific demands.

Thanks again Jon!
