You could win $14,000 for making a 60-second commercial in Harbor Freight Tools' commercial pitch competition. They're looking for ideas to drive traffic to their stores and website. 10 pitches will win $500. Harbor Freight's goal is to produce up to three of the 10 pitches into commercial spots and air them on cable, network TV and online – a potential audience of millions. Those three winning pitches will each receive a $12,000 production budget, plus a $1,500 bonus for the writer-director. Including the $500 semi-finalist prize, that's a total of $14,000. Pitches are due Monday, April 4, 2011. Go to Filmaka.com/harborfreight to learn more

I'm shooter and editor, I've 5 years of experience making documentaries and video. I've done 2 documentaries in Africa and some in Europe as shooter/director/editor. In Uganda I made a documentary about alcoholism and in Tanzania about the traditions of Maasai tribe and their impact on contemporary world. I'm interested in controversial issues and social documentaries.
Now I'm looking new experiences, I would to join in some new production or share some of my projects.
I can help in the phase of script, production or post-production. I'm convinced that the experiences of documentaries and videos are more interesting if they are the result of collaborations.
More informations about my works and skills are:

Write to me for any question or consideration,
Thanks,
Franco

The Director of Bigger Stronger Faster is looking for a great documentary line produceer, DP, Interns, PA's and anyone else that'd like to send me reels, resumes, etc. for my new documentary Trophy Kids.

This film is about the importance that we place on our kids to excel in athletics even though statistics say that only 3% of NCAA Division One Scholarship Athletes will ever turn pro. This film will feature famous athletes, coaches, and most importantly real and touching stories of kids and their parents striving for perfection.

I don't need someone to raise money or executive produce. I have that handled. I need a crew that can shoot this and make it look amazing and someone that can help me everyday in Los Angeles, most likely Venice or Santa Monica with Day to Day production.

Please send resume, reel if you're a DP, and whatever else you'd like to mention to BiggerStrongerFasterYounger@[AT]gmail[DOT]com ATTN: Chris Bell
