About the job
Hi Friends, I am looking for a super talented individual who can be my assistant director for the crime drama that I have written, directing and producing. A little something about me: My last film was a documentary short called Tailing Pond. Tailing Pond was my first Documentary Short. The film got a massive response from festivals and generated lot of buzz in the Film Festival community. It won so far 15+ awards and has been screened in 40+ festivals (more pending). Recently I sold the film to Shorts TV located in UK for a full distribution deal. Shorts TV is an official Oscar distributor for Oscar Nominated Shorts Film since 1998. They are releasing the film worldwide as a premier on all prime cable networks. Then it will be further sold to all major platforms. Additionally, they released the film in limited theaters around NY and LA to qualify it for academy awards. We just submitted it for consideration. I hope it gets a nod. I am currently making a feature crime drama. I have the script ready. The movie budget is $150,000.00 that includes all pre production, post costs. I am trying to raise more money but even if I don’t I will make the film with what I have. The money is in place in my bank account LLC. The end game for the film is to find its audience, recover its cost and book profit through a sale. It will be made as an independent feature. I have a DP and editor attached to it already. Please see their IMDb links below: DP: Editor: If you are a school student or an experienced individual who would like to assist me and thinks he/she is up to the game please contact me. This in a very low budget feature so you must be willing to wear multiple caps and also assist in other departments. The position is more Like an internship and you should be willing to accept low pay. If getting paid handsomely is your end game I am afraid this is a wrong posting for you. If you are ambitious and want to join a top crew and be a part of making a good film I welcome you. The tentative shooting dates are in summer around May-June 2021. My direct email is:
