Well I guess I'll post my resume too. I work full-time, standard business hrs for a cable doc series, but outside of that I am trying to get involved with as many projects in the LA area as possible, as a way to lend my skills out, to meet local filmmakers, and to just know what's being produced nowadays. I've done PA work, scheduling/coordinating, editing on FCP 3, public relations, film fest submissions, film fest boothing, and lots of other random stuff. At this point, I am open to unpaid positions.
He all, I just finished principle photography on my music-doc, and I'm thinking about selling my HVX200 camera package. Items for sale include the camera body, P2 Store, (2) 32gb P2 cards, .7 zoom-through wide-angle lens adapter, Litepanel, and remote zoom & focus controllers.
Of course, if anyone needs an experienced shooter or production manager in New Orleans (or anywhere in Louisiana), please let me know.
I'm attaching my equipment list along with my asking prices – all are negotiable.

Hartmut Bitomsky's new film, DUST opening tomorrow at Film Forum!
IT DOESNâ€™T GET MORE BASIC THAN DUST. And it is only a filmmaker of Harmut Bitomskyâ€™s stature who could successfully tackle a subject so seemingly uncinematic â€” by bringing to it a rigorous intelligence and a masterful visual imagination. DUST scours industrial sites and office building interiors, paint factories, and demolition sites. It deals with dust-repellent products, the medicinal cost of dust, the history of the Dust Bowl and the aftereffects of the dust created on 9/11. The definitive film on an elusive phenomenon that is both everywhere and nowhere.
Wednesday, December 3 â€“ Tuesday, December 9 â€¢ One Week
