We are looking for 21-22 crew positions for our next film: Second Chances. Below is a list of all the positions, along with the descriptions of what each will require.
You do not necessarily need to have any experience in these areas, because most of it is pretty easy to learn. All we require is that you come, willing to learn.
The job of the Assistant Director is extremely important! Because it can take a lot of stress off the director, so that he can focus more on directing the actors. You are going to be assisting the Director with general duties. You will also be in charge of knowing where everybody is when on set. So, if we are shooting, and somebody has to quickly run home for something, they will tell you.
You will work closely with me, by taking detailed notes concerning what has been shot, needs to be shot, and will also note any deviations from take to take. You also will make sure that the dialogue corresponds with the script, taking logging notes that are essential when editing, such as locating shots and finding the best takes.
- Prop Master – You will work with the Production Designer to acquire all the props, and make sure they are all in their appropriate positions on set.
- Key Costume – You will be the Costume Designer’s assistant, helping him/her out with everything he/she needs help with before filming. You will also make sure everyone is in costume when on set.
1.Camera Operator – There will usually always be two cameras going when we are filming; the Director of Photography (D.P.) will be operating one, and you: the camera operator, will be operating the other. You will work with the D.P.
3. Steadicam Operator – For certain shots, we will need to use a Steadicam. Which is basically a stabilizer that you hold and can walk with, while still getting a smooth shot. You’re the guy who will be doing this, whenever we need it.
1. Key Grip – You will be in charge of the Grip Department. So, basically, you will be the one who makes sure that all the tripods, boom poles, light stands, ect… are on set, and where the D. P. wants them to be when we are ready to shoot. You will be working closely with the Gaffer, and will also be in charge of the Grips.
2. Grips (2) – The Grips will work with the Key Grip, and help set all the grip up in the appropriate positions.
2. Electric Lighting Technician – You are in charge of the electricity. You will make sure we have the appropriate amount of electrical cords on set; and, when we are filming where there aren’t any electric outlets nearby, you will make sure that we have a generator. You are also going to be filling the position of Best Boy, which means that you will also be helping the Gaffer set up the lights.
Production Assistant – You will be the guy people call on when they need random help. For instance: An actor left something in their car, and you have to run to get it. Or, the Key Costume has a lot of things to do, and just can’t get it all finished by a certain time, you will help him/her.
Transportation Drivers (3 or 4) – You will be in charge of transporting everyone and everything from set to set.
If you would like to fill one of the above positions, we would love to work with you! Just fill out the below form.
We will be filming Monday-Saturday from September 3rd – September 28th. With a break on the 19th, 20th, and 21st. We will be working 10 hours a day. That’s alright if you can’t work the entire time. Just let me know your schedule, and we can work it out.
Thank you very much for your help!
Elijah Holston – Director
