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:

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.
- 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.
- 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 email@example.com.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Would it help to send you my resume? Hope to hear from you. All the best, Corinne van der Borch
