FILM MAKER NEEDED!

Hi! I would like to make a short documentary of about 15 minutes in length about a very unusual house in Los Angeles. We are thinking along the lines of the old A&E series "America's Castles."

The challenges are that we need it done quickly and the budget is limited.

Are you interested in making this film, or do you know someone in L.A. who might be? Please let me know.

Thanks!

Len

I'm looking for a room/space/suite in NYC (downtown Manhattan or Brooklyn) that could be turned into a good editing suite. No existing editing equipment necessary, just the space itself. Needs to have room for two people plus desks; quiet, safe, and accessible by subway.

This would be from September 1st, and lasting for 10-12 months. Any ideas? Sitting on any cool spaces? Email me at gabriel (at) hardworkingmovies.com. Thanks!

In reply to Theodore James's post on Wed 15 Aug 2012 :

Theodore, any number of D-Worders have recommended Leah Warshawski, though if you do a search here under "grant writers" I'm sure you'll turn up a number of other highly qualified folks.
