Director of Photography (DP) (With Gear)

Los Angeles, CA

Film (Feature-length)

Starts Aug 26

For 4 Week(s)

  • Pay Rate: $1,000.00 - $1,200.00 / Daily - Daily rate, plus gear rental if any
  • Job Requirements: On-location production (all travel costs covered).

We will be filming a feature-length documentary about a group who reclaim and train wild ponies in Nevada, Utah and Southern California. The doc will end following a long ride of several hundred miles. Will involve travel, some rough living and a lot of shooting on the go.

The ideal DP should be comfortable working in a wide variety environments, situations and lighting conditions, all on the go, often with minimal power or grip. We'll also expect you to shoot beautifully-lit studio sit-down interviews, gorgeous panoramas and interesting verite. You will also be in charge of a B and C cam, so the ability to direct coverage of B-roll is a must. We're hoping for a final product that combines the look of Haskell Wexler with a touch of Errol Morris.

Project shoots for three weeks at the end of September, with a week of prep in late August. Based out of L.A. All travel and lodging is paid. Camera package is still TBD, but likely Alexa mini or C300 mkIII. Open to considering a package from you for an additional rental if you have one.

Ability to ride a horse is a strong plus.
