  • Hi there.

    I've written a pilot for an independent sitcom which I plan to direct. It's a comedy that's somewhat similar (in style and in writing) to an american sitcom called "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia". If anyone is interested in the post of cinematographer for this job please drop me a line. Also a link to some footage you yourself have shot (relatively recently) would be desirable.

    Thanks

    P.S I will pay the cinematographer. It is however likely to be on a minimum wage an hour basis due to the tight budget involved.




  • Casey Hughes

    Age: 22 - 27

    Height: 5’6 – 5’10 approx.

    Build: Average

    Character Brief: Casey is a fragile young woman, who in ‘The Lamb’ is struggling with an overly possessive relationship. She displays attention-seeking behaviour and relies on the attentiveness of others to validate her actions. She is very concerned with her appearance, although she is far more beautiful than she gives herself credit for. The role necessitates a confident and experienced actress, who will be required to interact with the camera in ‘home movie’ style scenes. The role will be paid, although the budget for the film is minimal. ‘The Lamb’ is based in Galway, and is scheduled to shoot over 2 days and one evening 24-26 May, although these dates are flexible.



    Please Contact [email protected] with a CV, showreel and any relevant information.

  • Okay, I've merged all the casting calls and crew recruitment threads since the start of the year into this thread. From now on (unless you have permission from a mod) this is the only place to post cast and crew requests. The forum is completely littered with these threads and most of them are by one post wonders who never return. In future, these threads will be treated as spam.

  • Hey guys im Dan, a 19 year old hip hop artist from california living in Dublin...

    What I have in mind is quite simple, just a "street" video around Dublin, something like this would be sick

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnAbszcy3bs

    I dont have any specific date in mind, anytime mid-june would be cool for me! I havent actually decided what song im gonna make a video for yet.. It will be probably be a feelgood summer type song we can film on a sunny day around town and stephens green park and stuff..

    Dont need any equipment like lighting or a crew or stuff, just anybody with a Canon or whatever, and good editing..

    In terms of budget, what would you guys charge?

    Im just a poor student lol but im sure we can sort something out if its reasonable

    And of course, if we make a good team ill use you for every future video I make too..

  • Hi all,

    We're looking for extras for an exciting new teenage drama series called "My Phone Genie" beginning filming in Studio Solas in Baile na hAbhann, Co. Galway in mid-July and finishing in December.

    If anyone has an interest in applying please contact [email protected] for more information.

    Thanks!




  • Auditions are taking place in Dublin, Pearce Street, this Wednesday 6th July between 12 and 5:30 for a comedy horror film to be shot end of August/Septmember. We are looking for actors and actresses between 16 and 21. Actors have to be at least 16. No previous experience necessary.

    If you are interested please contact: [email protected]




  • CASTING CALL:
    I’m looking for an actor to play a main part along with myself for an MA project I’m doing in London. I’m filming it in Cork between the 15th-23rd/24th of August. Unfortunately as with most small projects it is unpaid but you will get a copy of the movie within a few weeks - it’s going to look pretty professional as it has to meet certain standards for the University. After its marked and everything I’ll be looking to enter it into next year’s Cork Film Festival so I’m looking to get some exposure of the film, hopefully I’ll try and get this thing on IMDB as well.

    The character is a guy called Rochey and he’s aged between 19-27 but him and his friend still drink everyday by the 99 steps (in Blackpool). He’s a character, along with his friend, that thinks he’s really cool but in fact they are the opposite, they’re also not the brightest sparks. They wear tracksuits and caps but no rings or piercings (as they’re not that mad heh heh). These guys are caricatures of the Cork Sham so it’s a pretty slapstick script. Think a kind of a sham/scobe/etc. I’m looking for someone who has a thick cork accent or someone who can do a convincing thick Cork accent. This character is pretty much in every scene so whoever gets the part will need to be able to commit to the shooting dates as I’m only in Ireland for these dates and can only use the equipment, etc. on these dates.

    AUDITION DATES:
    Tuesday 19th of July 5 – 8
    Wednesday 20th of July 5 – 8
    The venue is TBC it’ll either be in South Parish or Firkin Crane. I will be allocating 15 minute slots for each person who is looking to audition. If you could email me your interest and I’ll allocate your time slots with the venue to follow. You can email me at [email protected]
    Please remember that whoever gets the part needs to be available for the dates specified for filming.




  • Our company is producing two low-budget TV shows for an Irish station and we're looking for crew from all disciplines. The positions are not paid, but the show will definitely be produced and broadcast so the job will provide excellent experience and something for your reel.

    The primary positions we are looking for are;
    Camera Operator - We are looking for someone who can frame a shot. We will be using Canon DSLRs and Canon AVCHD cameras. Training will be provided if you don't know your way around camera operation but show flair for framing and shot selection.

    Camera Loader/Grip - We are looking for someone to mark shots with a slate and keep shot logs and notes. The loader will be in charge of unloading footage from memory cards to a hard drive among other responsibilities.

    Production Manager/Assistant Director - We are looking for someone who is efficient, level-headed, pragmatic and who can multi-task and manage people and locations.

    Production Assistant - We are also looking for a production assistant who can fill in various roles, from getting coffee to recording sound. This role is perfect for anyone looking for experience in multiple elements of TV/Film production.

    If you are interested in any of these roles, please contact us at [email protected] with a C.V. and a link to your reel or portfolio. Competence, enthusiasm and reliability is more important to us than experience.
    Again, all roles are unpaid, but our company intends to develop significantly in the next year which will almost certainly lead to paid work for those who work well within the team. When we get paid you get paid.

    Thanks!

    Can I ask what channel is broadcasting the show if you don't mind?




  • Hi Jeff

    We've been guaranteed a slot on Dublin Community TV (http://www.dctv.ie/) but we're going to show the pilots to RTE and Tv3 to see if someone bites.

    It'll either be a bit of craic and something for the reel, or a good foot in the door and a paid gig.




  • Making coffee AND recording sound? :confused:
    If I may, I think you may be grossly undervaluing the importance of sound recording for your project. It's a bit of an insult to expect your sound recordist to make the coffee.




  • Thanks, but I've got a Sennheiser ME66 and a zoom H2. It's literally a case of pressing the record button twice, pointing the mic at whoever's talking, and pressing the same button to stop recording.

    Tried and tested.

    Oh I have no interest in it myself, I was just wondering what channel was giving you such a low budget that you couldn't afford to pay anyone.
    Thanks, but I've got a Sennheiser ME66 and a zoom H2. It's literally a case of pressing the record button twice, pointing the mic at whoever's talking, and pressing the same button to stop recording.

    Honestly if you think that's all a sound recordist and boom op do then you've got a lot to learn.

    Hi guys, I might be up for helping on this. I can definitely frame a shot and am looking for some video experience. Can you tell me something about the nature of the show you are making?




  • Thanks, but I've got a Sennheiser ME66 and a zoom H2. It's literally a case of pressing the record button twice, pointing the mic at whoever's talking, and pressing the same button to stop recording.

    Tried and tested.

    Yes a sound recordist is pretty the same as a trained monkey. Sound is one if the most important aspects of any production and can make or break it. The unprofessionalism of your attitude would make me believe that you've never been on a professional shoot or that you are one of those people who thinks we can fix it in post.




  • Thanks, but I've got a Sennheiser ME66 and a zoom H2. It's literally a case of pressing the record button twice, pointing the mic at whoever's talking, and pressing the same button to stop recording.

    Tried and tested.

    Have you ever been on a film set before?

    That's a ridiculous attitude. Sound is equally important to picture, there's no way around it. Says a lot that you also don't mind getting a camera op who's never used the equipment before.
