I’m looking for a cinematographer and an editor for a short I will be filming end of August (8/24-8/25). I can only offer $500 each at this time, but the goal of the short is to act as advertising to fund a feature and my expectation is you would work on the feature.
The movie focuses on the domestique, or the support person in professional road bicycle racing. The people who sacrifice their bodies so the team leader has the energy to win critical elements of the race. My intention is 1/3 to 1/5 of the film is on the bike during races or preparation, so it’s important that any prospective DP and editor understand how to capture the intensity of the races.
Assuming I can get the budget for the feature (still a work in progress, but I’m aiming for $1-2 million), my expectation is the bulk of the race filming will be done in South West Virginia, around the Blacksburg area, though there’s a reasonable chance there will be some elements of international travel.
