Listen, before I begin there's something I have to get off my chest. For many of the jobs I've posted I seem to be getting a stock reply that I could do without. Now I know that many of you (especially women) are hesitant about giving your number out to a stranger willy nilly, but truthfully, when I'm casting for a project I probably don't have the time to sit in front of the computer and exchange chat messages with you on MM either. I know it may sound rude but please don't reply to any ads that I post if all you're gonna write back to me is "Interested". I WILL NOT give you a reply in most circumstances unless I actually see the post come up while I'm in front of the computer and I think you might be good for the project. I post on this site often enough, usually always also post my ads on Craigslist, and still have a pretty good standing with everyone that has worked with me, and you need to remember that I'm also partially trusting you my job with you as well, to show up, be a professional and get the job done. That being said, please keep this in mind when responding, and please remember that trust is a two-way street, and I have a lot to lose as well if my job isn't done. 95% of the time when I post to this site I'll need to contact you quickly so if you see this either give me a contact number or DO NOT REPLY to the ad at all. If I still sound weird or whatever after I call you then tell me to lose your number and never call me again and I will have no problem doing that (besides, the address book in my phone is getting way too long anyway). Sorry if I sounded a bit harsh, I really didn't mean to. Anyway, on with your regularly scheduled program!
We are looking to shoot films, commercials, videos and arthouse shots with actors and models of any experience level.
We are all about having fun: but focused on business too!!!!!
Not exactly sticks in the mud, but definitly not lacking focus...
We can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
TFP is never a problem if I like your vibe. It is all I am interested in shooting: Media to me is an experimental and expressive art form. I believe money bastardizes pure art forms.
We only add people I have shot with, or I am planning to shoot or work with. In a perfect world, I would like to add everyone I work with to my friends list but we all know how impossible that would be so please work hard to be on my friends list and I'll do the same for you. Tags and comments are welcome. Don't be shy...
We are all about the art, so please be serious about the art...We can still have alot of fun, but understand why we are here!!!
If we contact you it is for one reason: We want to shoot something special with you involved...
THINGS ABOUT SHOOTING THAT I LOVE:
People with a positive attitude.
People who are serious minded about the work.
People who come on time.
People who follow up.
People who are professional.
People who deliver on set.
People who appreciate hard work.
THINGS THAT I REALLY REALLY HATE:
Little retardos who forget we had a shoot planned...
Disruptive chaperones- they ruined it for the rest of you...
People who don't care about the art.
THINGS I MUST INSIST ON: 3 things (a short list)
Call me ahead of time if you can't come, or if you don't plan on coming.
Send me your contact number so we can discuss the shoot.
(Trust me: I am not interested in having your number for any other reason- I am not a kid, or a perv)...
Be professional at all times: I don't care if you don't have experience, that is cool: But you better act professional, because that is how you get treated when I am shooting...
THINGS I AM ALWAYS OPEN TO:
One of your ideas.
If you really really want to shoot it: Let me know and we will...
I promise (as long as it won't get us arrested)...
THINGS FOR YOU TO BE AWARE OF:
My images are seen by a lot of industry people because of the creative networks I travel in (film, music, television, and fashion) and the mass markets catered to. That means it is more than likely that you will be seen in these same circles...
Looking forward to shooting with you soon!!!!!
