***I'm looking for a film maker in Edinburgh who ideally has a studio or as has access to one to shoot a film for YouTube with me about my campaign. I'm looking for it to be about 3 minutes or so long with no dialogue, I have a song in mind I'd like to be played over the whole thing. I'd like to shoot some of it indoors and some of it in and around the streets of Edinburgh.
I'm looking for someone who is free within the next month, is willing to work on a TFP basis and can give me a relatively quick turn around on the finished product. I have a few things coming up in terms of publicity in the next couple of months and am looking for the material to already be there for people to see.***
