Producing partner wanted for upcoming micro budget comedy-drama shooting in NSW (Sydney and Blue Mountains).
80% of the budget has already been raised through private equity. A small crowd funding campaign and government rebates will bridge the gap. Main locations have been scouted. Script is polished.
Responsibilities will include leading the casting process, aid in raising the remainder of the budget, hiring and inspiring crew and work in collaboration navigating the sales, marketing and distribution arenas including hybrid models for new and emerging digital platforms.
I`m looking for a truly holistic producer with a passion for quality indie films within a limited budget. Someone who eats, sleeps and breathes all things film. Someone who thinks outside the box and is familiar with direct audience engagement, self marketing and distribution strategies (ie. Jon Reiss, Peter Broderick etc).
Experience producing and understanding the entire production process and business landscape is a must, but I`m more concerned about finding the right fit for this small character driven, coming of age indie than someone with multiple feature credits. Connections, resourcefulness, tenacity and organisational skills are also highly regarded.
About me: Over the past 5 years I have graduated from film school in NYC, worked in development for several NYC production companies and on set with academy award winning talent before returning to Sydney to make my directorial debut with this film. I have wrote, directed and produced a portfolio of short films that have been broadcast and screened at festivals internationally and very excited to collaborate with the right producer who shares the same passion and vision for this project as I do. Ideally this film will path the way for a successful partnership on future feature projects currently in development.
I will send more information about the project to prospective producers. Please apply with your IMDB link, reel, CV etc to: firstname.lastname@example.org
