What are you interested in, because depending on the position, we'd cover transportation to and from + lodging.

Bizarre. You've got an 8 mil budget with paid positions and you're having problems finding peeps in NYC? Where else have you posted for help, besides here?

Agreed re Mandy! We used them for a lot of the crew openings on my feature, and got resumes from (no joke) all over the world.

Sorry Andrew, but somebody has gotta call your bluff. You don't have an $8mil production, and nobody reading this should pay you any mind.

If I recall correctly (and I do), you were recently trying to sell your "production company", but it came with nothing more than a bunch of high-concept ideas, with no films produced. And here's the kicker -- you were selling your "production company" in order to get out of a whopping $3,000 debt, because you can't imagine any way to get a job at someplace like McD's, seeing as how your (parents') house is a whopping mile-and-a-half from the nearest bus-stop that would take you to Atlantic City.

Optioned a screenplay. Certainly not for $8 mil, but enough to move things forward. We do have $1.2 mil in tax credits. Working about $800,000 in Product Placement. Then well be securing some A-List talent and pre-selling a few territories. Then finishing everything off with a little crowdfunding, some GAP and equity financing.

If you do have an $8 million budget you should be finding the DP that you want, not advertising for the position on an internet forum. With that sort of money you can pretty much take your pick.

Mandy is fine and you'll find a lot of talented and up and coming crew there but this is not how you arrange the crew on an $8 million shoot.

Well that's part of the problem is I can't think of any off the top of my head that I would want. I'm only 24, so I really want some body fairly young (under 40-ish), that I could do additional films with for years.

We got a budget of $6750 a week for a DP.
