The Electric Chainsaw Massacre
We'll be shooting a 3 minute short comedy film, written by me and based on an idea by my older brother Josh.
Anyone who would like to help with the shoot, let me know by writing me at jason @ the look machine . com. We'd love to have you.
We'll be shooting Friday and Saturday, August 15th and 16th.
I posted on Craigslist for the male lead, the director of photography, and the audio engineer. You wouldn't believe the response I've gotten so far. It's been positively overwhelming! I was told that if I wanted to shoot a short as a UCLA student I should do it away from LA, because away from LA people really want to work with you (but in LA you're kind of ho-hum).
I'd have to say that's true, some of the resumes I've gotten are very impressive.
That combined with the fact that we'll be using a fancy-schmancy Red One Camera has really made those three positions hot commodities. (Plus the fact that we're paying a little for each of them, I'm sure that can't hurt.)
Seriously, as good as some of the reels are looking for the DP alone, I'm wondering why I didn't think of doing this a long time ago!
Again, if anyone would like to be involved, let me know. We'd love to have you.

What are you looking for, Jase?

People who will hold lights, mics, move things, basically do anything that needs to be done on the set...
Oh, and makeup and hair and stuff like that, too.

I may get involved, for old times sake.

Enjoy the shoot. I'll be looking forward to seeing/hearing more
