  • Job Requirements: Must be local to location (or willing to work as a local).
  • Additional Requirements:
    • Are you able to work as a local even if you are not a resident of the city where the shoot is located?
    • Do you own your own gear or have access to rentals that meet our standard package listed in the posting?
    • Have you tested Negative for COVID 19 within the past 48 hours?
    • If you have not tested, are you willing to test for COVID 19 prior to shoot?
    • Are you fully vaccinated?
    • Are you experienced working with Zoom?

We are looking for a DP with full camera/lighting package who can also run sound for an interview and some reality over a day in the CADILLAC, MI area, and could really use your help! Our Producers will be working remotely from Los Angeles, and we need a solid DP/Operator on the ground.

This shoot will take place over 1 day in CADILLAC, MI. Ideal candidates will have reliable transportation and be able to work as locals for each city. Hotel lodging is possible for the right candidate.

Due to the recent uptick in COVID cases, our company has strict guidelines with shoots, including scaling back crew sizes. This will be a 3-person crew - DP and 2 Production Assistants (willing to sub an AC if you have one if you have someone you've worked with that you'd like to bring with you). One PA will serve to assist you with setup/strike, and making the usual daily runs. The second PA will serve as the interface between yourself and our Producers back in Los Angeles, via Zoom or FaceTime.

As for equipment, we are looking for someone who owns at least 1 camera (preferably Sony FS7) and a decent lighting package. If you have a second camera available as well, let's discuss bringing that on as a possible second angle.

Last season our standard kit included the following:

* 1 - FS7 Body
* 1 - Canon 18-80mm zoom lens (or something equivalent)
* 1 - Canon 16-35mm lens (or equivalent)
* 1 - Canon 70-200mm lens (for sit down interview long lens style)
* 1 - tripod
* 1 - set of Teradek
* 1 - Director's monitor
* 1 - Laptop
* 2 - mic setups (we use Sennheiser G3, but whatever works)
* 4 - Litepanel 1x1 Astra lights (dimmable, Bi-Color)
* 4 - light stands
* Misc grip stuff (road rags, duvetine, cardellinis, stingers)

Given the circumstances, you don't necessarily have to have exactly the same package, but just to give a general idea of what we're looking for.

As noted above we would also need you to run sound via Lavs and on-board mic.

Please reply with a link to your reel or any documentary work you've done, especially interviews.

Don't stop now... keep hunting!
