I'm running a team for the upcoming 48 Hour Film Festival, on the weekend of June 3rd-5th. If you're unfamiliar with the 48 Hour Fest, it entails all of us teams getting just 48 short hours to write, shoot, and edit a short film, which will then be screened later in the month. Each team is given a specific genre, prop, character, and line of dialogue to go by, to ensure that all films are shot in that timeframe.
I have a few actors on my team so far, but I require a few crew members as well, namely:
Boom Mic Operator, Lighting Technician (not much expertise required, just could use some help setting them up and getting them right), Make-Up Artist (anything from general makeup to zombie effects may be needed), and a Director of Photography
I have a few years of experience with the 48. I first took part in 2011 as a writer and actor, and last year was a DP in the general 48, and then ran my own team later in the fall for the Horror 48, where our film placed 5th. This year, I will be writing, directing, and editing. I have all the equipment we need, including camera, lights, and mic; the camera and mic I will insist on using because I know it will work well with my editing system, and time is a factor.
So if you're interested, have done the 48 before and want to again, or have never even heard of it and think it sounds like the best time ever, please send me a message at email@example.com. Only a few weeks to go! (Please note that we will need you for as much of Saturday June 4th as possible.)
Thank you for reading.

My name is Gareth O'Dalaigh and I am looking for a director of photography or possibly someone who is looking to branch out into becoming a director of photography for a 5-7 minute short film titled "Friend". The short in question is about a young man who in order to cope with the loss of his friend, is pretending he is still alive. However, he having a history of mentally illness, the main conflict comes from his sister worrying this is a step backwards in his mental health.
This is an unpaid position, however I will cover your gas, any equipment fees, etc. I do not want anybody to have to spend a penny of their own money into this project. What I can't offer you in terms of paid compensation, hopefully I will be able to make up for by providing an interesting project to work on, and an opportunity to be creative and to hone your craft.
A little about me: I am a writer/director who is 20 years old, and rest assured that I take filmmaking and my role as a director/leader seriously. I fell in love with the art form when I was 13 and first saw Harold and Maude, and realized how deeply a movie could resonate with someone. Although I've taken directing/filmmaking courses before, I have found that I learn better by doing, and this project is part of that.
If you have any questions or anything I've written intrigues you, please don't hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
