    Hi all,

    As the title suggests I'm looking for someone with the know how when it comes to lighting, who can get to Galway City with relative ease. We're making a 5 min short in a local bar and have 4 hours to shoot it.

    Our previous lighting guy has been offered long term work outside of Galway and it clashes with our fixed date (the 25th of January) and hence why I'm posting so close to the shoot.

    If you have the knowledge but no equipment fret not as we have a budget which I can discuss via PM. With regard a wage I must state everyone involved is working for free and the experience, including myself. However I will not rule out working something out, again via PM. I may be able to allocate a bit of the budget.

    If anyone is interested please contact me and I can go into more details.

    I think you'll enjoy the project in question.

    I think we got ourselves a replacement.

    Thanks though.

    I'm looking to have a comedy set recorded live asap, limited finance available so may suit a student. The gig will be in the midlands so would probably suit somebody based in Laois/Offaly or surrounding areas. PM for more details if interested.

    I PM'd you about this two days ago but didn't get a reply. Did you find someone?

    Good morning,

    Looking for extras to come down and help us out on a small low-budgeted short, shooting on Saturday 26th February.

    The film is a zombie-wrestling extravaganza and we need numbers to make up the zombie hoarde that takes on our main character. Unfortunately there is no pay as we are a very low budget film. But it'll be a couple of hours dressing up as zombie and shuffling around being scary so it should be fun! We are shooting in Dublin 12.

    If you are interested please e-mail me at [email protected] for all the details or message me on this forum.

    Sorry about the short notice.

    Any help would be hugely appreciated!

    Where are you based?
    When are these shoots taking place?
    What are they for?

    Sounds like you're looking for a lot of specific talent without any payment.

    What is FOLLOW ME?
    FOLLOW ME is an upcoming reality show which follows a person in their daily life. The person can be contacted via social networking sites by fans and viewers of the show.

    The Job
    The successful applicant will be required to be available to film in Dublin city at least one day per week for up to 4 hours. (usually less). It will then be your job to send send the editor the video so that the video can be edited and broadcast.

    Payment, etc.
    Unfortunately, as we, Hazy Entertainment, are only starting out in production we are unable to pay you. However, when money from our sponsors comes through (who we are negotiating with at the moment) you will then be paid. We will agree payment at a later date.

    We require a motivated, not necessarily experienced person who can work a camera (note: you will need your own camera) and can film proceedings without interfering with the scene.

    More About the Show
    We are intending to have 1 episode of 30 minutes per week, for a series of 6 weeks, beginning in early April. The show will broadcast online and will be advertised on websites online such as Facebook, etc.

    We hope you decide to help us and further both ours, and your career, and work with us in more than this project in the future.

    Please send me a PM here if you are interested, thanks.

    Please note: you DO NOT have to be a professional or have ''high-tech'' or ''top of the range'' camera, any camcorder will do!

    Translation: You will not be paid?

    If you're negotiating with sponsors at the moment then surely you'll have that sorted by the time you start shooting in April and should know how much you can pay the cameraman.

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,623 ✭✭✭Fol20

    So your company dont even have a camera?

  • Registered Users Posts: 703 ✭✭✭obliviousgrudge

    No need to worry folks (sarcastic). We have a cameraman.

    You say 'some expenses' - could you clarify which expenses you will be taking care of?

    What level of experience does the student need to have?

    Do you need this person to commit to the full 6 days of shooting?

  • Registered Users Posts: 78 ✭✭Froggy7

    Hello AnonoBoy,

    "Some Expenses" mean we would cover travel expenses (unless you need to take a plane to join us!) and we would ensure you don't go hungry nor thirsty while helping us out... not a five star meal every day, but definitly something edible.

    As for the level of experience, we would like someone who is aware of what is involved in a typical film set-up, who has had the opportunity/interest to use a camera before. We assume that students who started at least last September would have the minimum required. The DOP is highly professional and willing to show you as much as possible while you give them a hand.

    As this is not remunerated, we do not expect people to be able to commit to the full 6 days. However, the best for us would be to have maybe one assistant for at least 3 days, or maybe half-days. We will make a decision when we look at all the applicants and their availability.

    I hope this answers your questions!

    I am looking for at least one camera operator (with own camera) to film a comedy show on the night of Monday April 4th in Dublin (city center).
    Ideally we would also like a sound recordist too (own gear preferred, but I can provide kit if need be).
    The show is due to start around 9. The improvers are due to finish up shortly after ten, so the crew are welcome to watch the other comedy acts afterward if they want. While we can't pay you, there's a pint in it for anyone who wants to help out.
    If anything, it will be a fun shoot.

    PM me or email me for more details or to express interest.

    Hi. I’m looking for a producer for a short comedy video. The setup’s fairly simple; it’s a conversation between 2 characters in a single location. The actors are already lined up & I have funding that I hope will be enough.

    If you’re interested please PM me for more info, or if anyone has any suggestions as to where might be a good place to look for a producer, I’d really appreciate it.
