Salutations fellow desert adventurers,
I am a San Francisco based film maker who has been to the burn for five years now. A few members of my camp, from San Diego and up here in the Bay, were fortunate enough to get tickets this year.
I currently work with a DP friend of mine at Vibrant Films, http://www.vibrantfilms.com
where I write, produce, and direct web commercials, documentaries, short films, and the like. Unfortunately my DP is not going this year so I am looking for someone else to join with in order to film a (uhhh here goes) experimental, narrative, with a bit of improvisational happenstance short film. Sound strange? Damn right.
It's never been done, (mostly because the technology wasn't available) and it's going to require a ninja-like DP and by that I mean, they must be fearless, agile, and dedicated. I would prefer them also to have been to the burn before. The relationship between a DP (in this case, the camera operator) and I is going to need to be a close one. It would also be enormously helpful if the DP and I could do a few test shoots in San Francisco before the burn. I posses the required equipment and the technical know-how to produce the film so there is no issue there.
Male, Female, young, old, animal or vegetable I have no preference.
Forgive me for I am being intentionally nebulous here about the story but it's because I would rather explain the specifics 1 on 1 than in an open forum. If you'd like to know more please send me a message or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Think: the visual approach in Gus Van Sant's [i]Elephant[/i] mixed with real life.
