Crew Positions Needed:
Right now looking for Producers, UPMs, and Cinematographers with strong reels (great if they have access to their own camera and lighting equipment or can access a good deal)

Will look for other crew positions later in the year, please DO NOT submit if you are not one of the three positions listed.

This is a low budget feature, and therefore certain crew positions are only paid. Small stipends may be available for actors based on their locations from shoot.
