(NOTE: If you have already submitted your work for consideration, please re-submit according to the following instructions, as we’ve revamped our online submission process)
Author Solutions (www.authorsolutions.com
), the leading self-publishing company in the world, is looking for highly skilled creative filmmakers to write, direct and edit live action high def trailers based on our books. Filmmakers must be excellent storytellers and understand how to maximize very minimal budgets. Please see the following two examples:
Please note, the entire budget for these projects is $2500 (not including music scoring). If you genuinely believe you can (at least) match the quality level of these two trailers at this budget level, please go to www.authorsolutionsfilm.com
and click on “Hollywood Trailers” to apply to be part of our freelance filmmaker network.
Filmmakers on these projects must be able to write, direct, shoot, and edit. Please do not apply if you are not capable of all of the above. PLEASE NOTE: ALL TRAILERS MUST BE SHOT IN H.D., so only apply if you have access to the necessary camera equipment.
If selected to be a part of our Hollywood Trailer filmmaker network, when assigned a project you will be sent a book to read and given 10 days to turn in a script/proposal detailing exactly what you are planning to shoot. You may be given notes on said proposal and asked to make changes. You will then have two weeks to shoot and deliver a rough cut. You will then be given notes on your rough cut (and in some cases, asked to do re-shoots if need be). You will then be given 10 more days to polish and turn in your final cut. A professional composer will be provided to score each trailer.
Note: We are looking for highly skilled filmmakers who understand how to stretch a budget. Again, please do not apply unless you honestly believe you can, at the very least, match the quality level of the two trailers linked above.
When applying please make sure to fill out all fields in the application and we’ll look forward to reviewing your submissions. All submissions will be viewed, and the filmmakers we are interested in potentially working with will be contacted.
