Talent Call

by on Jun.11, 2009, under General, Metal Sandwich

Unfortunately I have had a real pain in the neck from trying to post on CraigsList.org.  Hopefully a few people can find their way here for the details of the original posting attempts:

Seeking talent for 48 Hour Film Project June 26-28


I am leading the Country Slickers team (www.CountrySlickers.com) of the June 26-28 Dallas event of the 48 Hour Film Project (www.48HourFilm.com).

Shooting will be an all-day affair on Saturday (like 8am to 8pm). Possibly on Friday night in addition. (Post production begins Saturday night and goes through the day Sunday – we don’t expect to need the talent on Sunday unless we run into an unexpected need for vocal looping).

We are family-friendly and want like-minded only. Important to think and behave like a pro.

Being that the key particulars of the competition (the genre, a character, and a line of dialogue) are not assigned until kickoff on Friday evening, it is hard to know exactly what is desired in terms of talent. So, that said, I am thinking initially to recruit 1 or two males and one or two females. All ages and types of people will be considered. Having talent and experience is most important. Uniqueness is also of interest. And flexibility. Your character might end up singing or dancing or getting attacked by zombies in the mud during a food fight – or you might be one of them yourself (no, we are not planning on making a zombie movie, but are illustrating the need for flexibility). Tell us about any special talents for instance such as juggling, riding motorcycles/horses (can you supply a cool prop like a horse or motorcycle?  or an outstandingly unique wardrobe item/costume) It would be great if you can provide a link to examples/clips of your acting.

The number of primary roles is limited. But anyone who is interested in crewing might be considered as an extra (for perhaps a very brief moment on camera – but no guarantees).


Shooting will most likely occur outdoors in Celina, Texas (15 minutes north of Frisco, right off of Preston Road) – but could change.

Our goals include: have fun, produce a high quality production. So far we have an excellent guitarist and an experienced television actress on the team. Still recruiting. Please contact me at "talent at countryslickers.com" right away if you think you are interested. This will be a fast and crazy time to produce a decent movie and deliver it in just 48 hours. Looking for people who will take it seriously and be prepared to put in what it takes.

We will follow all competition rules which require the appropriate releases and waivers (and, SAG folks can participate) (rules and paperwork at www.48HourFilm.com). Remember, this is a no-pay opportunity and an independent production.

Finally, if joining Country Slickers does not work for you, be sure to try to connect with other Dallas-area 48 Hour Film filmmakers to see if there is a match.

Thanks so much!

Call for Camera and Crew

by on Jun.11, 2009, under General, Metal Sandwich

Unfortunately I have had a real pain in the neck from trying to post on CraigsList.org.  Hopefully a few people can find their way here for the details of the original posting attempts:

 

I am leading the Country Slickers team (www.CountrySlickers.com) of the June 26-28 Dallas event of the 48 Hour Film Project (www.48HourFilm.com). Need experienced DP/camera operators) with a good camera (we are allowed to use up to 2 cameras, and can have one on standby). Also need sound person and editor. …and grips to help out.

Shooting will be an all-day affair on Saturday (like 8am to 8pm). Possibly on Friday night in addition. Post production begins Saturday night and goes through the day Sunday.

You don’t have to be a pro – just need to act and think like one :). We are family-friendly want like-minded only.

Shooting will most likely occur outdoors in Celina, Texas (15 minutes north of Frisco, right off of Preston Road) – but could change. It is essential to be comfortable shooting hand-held/stedicam. Probably quite a bit of action. Would love to do some vehicular shooting as well.

Also, though I could do the editing, I would rather have someone else who is good and loves doing it do it instead. Know anyone good with special effects, stunts, makeup, wardrobe? Or have cool props or access to a unique location?

Our goals include: have fun, produce a high quality production. So far we have an excellent guitarist and an experienced television actress on the team. Still recruiting. Please contact me at "crew at countryslickers.com" right away if you think you are interested. This will be a fast and crazy time to produce a decent movie and deliver it in just 48 hours. Looking for people who will take it seriously and be prepared to put in what it takes. Due credit shall be given/credited.
We will follow all competition rules which require the appropriate releases and waivers.

Thanks so much!
