If you’re in the Birmingham area and have the skills and interest for working on a short film, I have some crew positions that I’m trying to fill for my upcoming short film, “John Crispin for President.” It’s a parody of a presidential campaign film of the sort you might see from a major party candidate. Here are the jobs open right now:
— Location manager: I’m looking for a very resourceful person who’s capable of finding locations, securing permissions and managing the production’s relationship with the owners of the locations.
— Casting director: The lead role is cast, but the casting director will be responsible for finding appropriate selections for other roles for the director’s approval.
— Production manager: For this position, I want someone who is very competent, responsible and trustworthy. The production manager will plan the shooting schedule and work with various other crew to coordinate everything working smoothly. This person should have excellent communication skills and should have production experience.
— Art director: This person will be responsible for any graphics or design as required by the director. Given that it will be a very small crew, the art director will also be responsible for securing and coordinating any needed props.
— Marketing specialist: This person will work on the online fundraising campaign (Indiegogo) early in the project and then shift to any public communication needed related to production, followed by online marketing of the finished film.
I’ll be filling additional positions, but these are the only ones I’m looking for at the moment. I hope to pay everyone at least a small stipend so that these will be paid positions on your resumes, but I can’t promise that until the fundraising campaign is complete. If you’re a college student in a related field and you can get school credit for this, I’d be happy to work with your school to fill out any needed paperwork.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me why you’re interested and why you think you’re qualified for whatever job interests you. Related experience or training is preferred, but not required for some roles. Drop me an email if you’re nearby and interested.
