Without going into too much details, we are essentially producing a high-octane & somewhat commercialized action-thriller shot at the no-budget indie-student level by the Film & Photography Society at the University of California here in Riverside. As this is a non-profit film catered directly for the festival circuit, we cannot afford to pay monetary compensation for services rendered. However, I believe that this will be a wonderful avenue for exposing your talents to the world as well as networking, marketing and showcasing your talents to like-minded filmmaking enthusiasts in the area. Individuals keen on crew membership or production assisting are more than welcome to apply too. We are fully equipped with a Canon XL2, Panasonic DVX 100A and HVX 200, Manfrotto tripods, fig rigs, crane jibs, and steadicams, etc.
It will require over two weekends of shooting towards the end of April and start of May. Shooting is tentatively scheduled for May 5th and 6th with free meals provided for these two days. The script has yet to be finalized but the following synopsis basically sums up the whole movie:
We are holding auditions at 'Costo Hall', the University of California, Riverside on April 8th and April 14th (Sunday) at 5:00 PM. Please e-mail in advance to set up an appointment as well as obtain a more detailed map and directions.
Please do not hesitate to e-mail me at this site's Private Messaging System (must be logged in) if you have any further inquiries, feedback, opinions, suggestions, questions, or comments. Please e-mail to also set up an appointment.
