We are looking for a Sydney-based producer with past experience in short film production or production office-based TV and film experience for a quirky and alternative dark comedy (think Wes Anderson) to be shot in/around Sydney.
The role is currently unpaid (we shall endeavour to address this if possible) but could lead to work on a potential internet-based series currently in a development stage.
You will ideally have past-experience, either through vocational training or through industry work and your tasks will include:
*working on a fourth-draft script and finding ways to see it through to shooting script with director / writer
*funding for the project, either through a funding organisation (experience in this field would be helpful) or private funding
*arranging deal memos for cast and crew
*organising casting process
*liaising with 1st AD regarding schedules and locations
*keeping production within time and budget constraints
This short film has been in the works for some time, it has the foundations of a strong script which has received positive feedback from two working Sydney-based feature film directors. It has a director and a DOP and we are in advanced discussions with a production designer. Most locations have been scouted but none confirmed. Several cast have been approached with this project with positive outlook.
We would like to shoot before the end of November.
