Canadian D-Worders:

I'm producing my second comedic music video for Funny Or Die. It takes place in Toronto but we're shooting here in New York. We're looking for a shooter up there in Canada to do an opening Toronto skyline shot on a Canon 5D or 7D. Our budget is ridiculously tiny but we can afford to pay you a little bit for an hour or two of work. This new video is for a very popular Canadian indie rock supergroup. Here's a link to see our previous video, which has been viewed around 130,000 times:

We encourage you to think creatively and utilize your skills to make a film that will engage viewers while at the same time teach us all something new about the art of filmmaking and means of production.

*NOTE: It is forbidden to pay cast/crew during production. All individuals participating should do so because of their interest in creating art through cinema and their support for the respective project.

About NOMAD Films
NOMAD Films was created as a means for exhibiting new approaches to producing and distributing short, documentary and feature films. It’s time to stop seeing lack of funding as a problem but to instead see it as a challenging way for artists to truly showcase their talents. Our partnership with “Big Screen Project” creates an ideal opportunity for selected filmmakers to share their work with a diverse and public audience in a metropolitan setting, ideally broadening the understanding of and appreciation for cinema and its makers.

FILMMAKER SERVICES INTERNSHIP at Arts Engine (DocuClub and fiscal sponsorship)

DocuClub Program is a film screening series of documentaries in rough-cut stage. Each month, a filmmaker presents her film as a works-in-progress. Afterwards, a moderator facilitates a discussion between filmmaker and audience. Constructive feedback from these sessions informs the finished film. Past films that have been screened at DocuClub include BORN INTO BROTHELS, PRODIGAL SONS, and DISTURBING THE UNIVERSE: WILLIAM KUNSTLER.

Responsibilities include:
- Participate in the selection process for DocuClub screenings by soliciting and previewing submissions
- Provide written feedback to DocuClub submissions
- Assist with newsletter, writing, copy editing
- Assist with set up and break down after DocuClub screening
- Keep track of RSVPs to screening
- Research potential partnerships/sponsors for sessions

Fiscal Sponsorship Program is a fundraising tool that serves as an alternative to a filmmaker establishing her own 501 (c)(3) nonprofit corporation. It allows a filmmaker’s non-commercial project to apply for funding from organizations requiring that the recipient have nonprofit status. As fiscal sponsor, Arts Engine, Inc., serves as the nonprofit tax-exempt umbrella organization that accepts and administers contributions made to a filmmaker’s project.

Arts Engine has served as fiscal sponsor for such outstanding films as THE TRIALS OF DARRYL HUNT by Ricki Stern and Anne Sundberg, PRAY THE DEVIL BACK TO HELL by Gini Reticker, FAVELA RISING by Matt Mochary and Jeff Zimbalist, and GOD GREW TIRED OF US: THE STORY OF THE LOST BOYS OF SUDAN by Christopher Dillon Quinn and Tommy Walker.

Responsibilities include:
- Research grant/funding resources for filmmakers
- Research news and updates from fiscally-sponsored filmmakers

A love for and general knowledge of documentary films is highly desired. Must be able to work nights once a month for the DocuClub screening.


A commitment of 2 days a week (14 hours) would be highly appreciated. The internship is unpaid, but college credit can be arranged.

If interested, please email Ashley Panzera at ashley@artsengine.net.

In reply to Aaron Soffin's post on Mon 8 Nov 2010 :

Dear Aaron,
I just joined D-word today and read your post.
I am very interested and I'm quite sure I fit the description TeacherU is looking for as editing and production associate. I worked for a similar project in New York City shooting video at Innercity Highschools by the name of Teachscape http://www.teachscape.com/html/ts/nps/index.html- sponsored by the BIll& Melinda Gates Foundation. I have a ton of experience working independently on FCP and shooting with different pro-sumer HDV camera's. I just sent TeacherU my profile at job@teacheru.org. Would it help to send you my resume? Hope to hear from you. All the best, Corinne van der Borch

Corinne, first of all, welcome to The D-Word and be sure to tell us all about you in the Introduce Yourself topic.

Just wanted to mention that it's perfectly ok in these cases to email Aaron directly rather than just hoping he'll see your post and reply. You can get his (and everyone's) contact info by clicking on his image or name above any of his posts.

Interaction Design intern for music Documentary Film/e-Book project (NYC)

Indie, feature-length documentary in progress seeks an exceptional, part-time (1 to 2 days a week) Interaction Designer (or a team of 2 designers) to join our team in creating a new kind of historical/contemporary music documentary. Digital storytelling across screens and platforms is coming to the documentary medium – so help us be part of the Doc. 2.0 evolution!

The ideal candidate will have a background in design and usability, and a deep appreciation for the value of building indie brands that resonate and attract an audience for all the right reasons. You are not only a phenomenal multi-tasker, but someone who simply gets sh!t done. You are steeped and versed not only in social media tools, but in ways to connect and tell a narrative through them. You love docs, but wish the stories they told existed in more tangible, interactive ways.

Working with the producer, director and archivist of this film, you’ll come up with ways to grow and extend our existing process (we’ve got 5000+ fans on Facebook, have nearly 3 years of more than 40 interviews shot in 17 cities across the US, and are starting an 12 to 15 piece orchestra for filmed performances in Brooklyn in 2011). You will help us share and market the film as we continue to grow our audience – both now and after the film’s release.

Duties:
• You will lead the co-development of a 2 to 3 year roadmap for social media and off-line audience growth and engagement (prior to and after the film’s festival debut).
• You will help select and lead a team (editor and designer) in the co-development of an Apple iBook – destined for display on the iPad, complete with original poetry, lyrics, illustrations, photos and embedded video clips (using the ePUB format & HTML5). This project will be filmed for inclusion in the documentary.

Prerequisites (you basically breathe software, not intimidated by anything, right?):
• A background in interaction design, UX/UI work, and working on interactive media teams – yep.
• Experience with Adobe inDesign CS5, Photoshop/AfterEffects, DVD authoring and workflow – check.
• WordPress development and project management experience – yes!
• Experience with video production and editing (FinalCut, iMovie) – {very helpful}.
• A background in traditional filmmaking less important than dexterity in new media production, collaboration and development for web 2.0, DVD, and television projects.

Why is this an internship?: We know what needs to get done, but we are also on the hunt for finishing-funds for our film, which means that even though we will start our mighty "crowdsourced" funding effort in Jan. 2011 (via the usual suspects of Kickstarter or IndieGoGo) – we are not able to pay anyone yet. We do have 1 intern working on the team now for college credit, and hope that this project will be just intriguing enough to find the right person to help.

To apply: Please send your resume/CV and cover letter (personal references appreciated) and links to projects you’ve managed and/or worked on to info@mediagroove.com. We appreciate serious applicants with relevant experience and thoughtful responses. Lastly, please put "Interaction Design Intern" in the subject line. Thanks!
