6. SEEKING PAs and Interns
My name is Will Elliott, and I graduated from the UT RTF department in 2007.
I'm writing because I wanted to get the word out that my partner, Kirk Johnson
(also a 2007 RTF grad) and I have written and are producing a feature length
comedy, that will begin shooting here in Austin in early June. The movie is called
"Austin High"-- here's a little article that was written about us in the Austin

American Statesman:

I was wondering if you could help us, or direct me to anyone who could help get
the word out to the RTF community about our project. We're in great need of
hungry film students who would be interested in working as PA's and interns on
our set. I know that the PA work I did on other sets while I was at UT was
incredibly rewarding for me, and I'd like to give current students the same
opportunity to hone their craft and learn about the industry hands-on.

Please let me know if there's any way you think you could help us out with this,
and feel free to contact me anytime with any questions. Thanks for your time!

The Center for Documentary Studies (CDS) at Duke University is accepting
applications for nine-month internship positions that will begin in September 2010
and end in May 2011. The interns will gain broad experience in the documentary
field, with particular focus on exhibiting, publishing (print and web), and
producing a range of materials related to the documentary arts. Two positions
are available. (See more detailed descriptions below.) The interns will be based
at CDS in Durham, North Carolina, for the 2010-11 academic year.

To qualify, applicants should be recent college graduates (no more than three
years out of school) who demonstrate excellent communications abilities, pay
careful attention to details, balance initiative and drive with congeniality and team
play, show creative talent, and exhibit achievement in some aspect of the
documentary arts. CDS internships require a commitment of 30 hours per week,
and interns receive a monthly stipend of $1,000.

Interns will be expected to participate as staff colleagues in all CDS activities.
The Center for Documentary Studies offers an interdisciplinary program in the
documentary arts—photography, audio, film/video, narrative writing, and other
means of creative expression—that emphasizes active engagement in the world
beyond the university campus. Much more than a traditional educational center,
CDS encourages experiential learning in diverse environments outside the
classroom, with an emphasis on the role of individual artistic expression in
advancing broader societal goals. Programs range widely to include university
undergraduate courses, popular summer institutes that attract students from
across the country, international awards competitions, award-winning book
publishing and radio programming, exhibitions of new and established artists in
our own galleries, and fieldwork projects in the U.S. and abroad. READ MORE:

To apply to be part of the 2010-11 internship program, send a cover letter,

Date Needed: TBD - dates throughout May/June
Contact Name: Anna Bowers
Contact Email:
Phone : 347.293.0808
UT Affiliation: none
Compensation: Varies by job. All jobs are paid.
Description: National Geographic documentary producers are seeking shooters,
camera/lighting assistants, and PA's for yet to be determined dates in May or
June. Shooters should have access to an HD camera (EX1 or similar). Those
interested should send resume/reel to the email above. Please include which job
you are applying for in the subject line.

Learn Film & Video Lighting from professional Gaffer Harrison Witt during this
intensive, 16-hour weekend class. SET LIGHTING 1 is the introduction to a
series of lighting workshops that offers progressively advanced instruction in the
concepts and techniques of lighting for all types of Film/Video production.

  In this production-based, immersion course, all instruction occurs on-location,
while we light scripted scenes with actors and state-of-the-art lighting and grip
equipment from GEAR - Austin's premiere rental house.

   We'll scout the scenes, plan our lighting set-ups, and execute a variety of
options for each scenario, paying close attention to fundamental techniques and
strategies that will ensure confident, efficient lighting.


 The course runs from 8am - 5 pm on Saturday and Sunday, with a 1-hour lunch
break (noon-1pm). Feel free to bring a lunch, but Thundercloud Subs will be
provided. The workshop will be held at: Gear Rental 4822 E. Cesar Chavez
Austin, TX 78702

  The cost for the weekend class is $350. Since classes are limited to 10 people,
full payment is required to secure your place.

 Go here to reserve your spot and pay by credit card, or call Gear at (512) 485-
3131. Email instructor Harrison Witt at for more details.

  Harrison brings over 15 years of professional lighting experience to REEL
LIGHTS. Working on union/studio films since 1994 has given him working access
to the ideas and techniques of some of the industry's leading Directors of
Photography and Gaffers. His professional experience runs the gamut of Film &
Video production, from narrative and documentary features and shorts, to
commercials, music videos, and even still shoots.

   Additionally, his teaching experience as a Lecturer at UT Austin (Film
Production 1 and Advanced Cinematography), as well as leading many other
lighting workshops for both university and high-school students has helped
Harrison develop this immersion-style curriculum. The concept is simple: the set
will be our classroom.

Day 1 will focus on lighting a Daytime Interior scene in an office setting. We will
explore lighting in a mixed color temperature environment with an eye towards
creating a naturalistic look. We will approach the fundamentals of lighting with
light meters, HMI's, Kino-Flows, LED light panels, and tungsten lights, in addition
to variety of grip tools. Additionally, by casting actors with dark and light skin, we
demonstrate the challenges of creating even, natural lighting for subjects with
very different levels of skin reflectance.
Day 2 will focus on lighting a Nighttime Interior scene in a warehouse setting. In
this 'Day for Night' shoot, we will create a much more stylized look - utilizing
colored gels, smoke/fog machines, and flicker generators.

On Saturday, please arrive by 7:30am for Sign-In. This course presents Set
Lighting in a professional environment. Please show up early enough to be ready
to start working at 8am sharp! Also, no flip-flops or opened-toed shoes of any
kind - this is a safety issue and no exceptions will be made. Wear comfortable
work clothes and shoes, and bring a pair of leather gloves for handling hot lights.

With this new granting program, Mountainfilm is committing to help individuals
use a variety of media sources to tell stories one would find at the festival. The
Mountainfilm Commitment Grant will go to filmmakers, photographers, artists,
adventurers and explorers whose projects are intended to move audiences to
action on issues that matter.

Mountainfilm’s financial commitment in 2010 will be five individual cash grants of
up to $5,000 each. Aside from the cash, we’ll also work with grantees to ensure
that their stories are heard as widely as possible. We'll begin taking Letters of
Interest in June, 2010, with the final applications due in August. Grants will be
awarded in October of the same year.

Mountainfilm is seeking Letters of Interest from individuals who are producing
film, video, photography, book, art, and multimedia projects that are intended to
move audiences to action on issues that matter. Filmmakers, photographers,
artists, adventurers, writers and explorers should apply if they’re creating a work
that can be presented in a theater, gallery or more broadly on television and
online. We are particularly looking for projects that will have a positive and
tangible effect on specific and vital issues.

For this pilot cycle, we will consider letters from people who have:
-      participated in Mountainfilm as a filmmaker or guest presenter.
-      been recommended by a Mountainfilm filmmaker or guest presenter

In 2010, we expect to make several grants of up to $5,000, each, for a total of
$25,000. In addition to the cash award, we will work with the grantees to broaden
the audience and deepen the impact of each project. We will do this by
partnering with media personalities and industry professionals who have a close
relationship with Mountainfilm.
The overarching intention of our granting program is to help ensure that
important stories are not only told but also heard.

The deadline to submit the LOI is 5PM Mountain Time on June 30, 2010. The
finalists will be notified by July 30 with full applications due by August 31. Final
decisions will be made by September 30 and the funding will occur by October
31, 2010.

Letters of Interest must be NO LONGER THAN 400 WORDS. Longer letters will
be disqualified.

Creatively, we are interested in projects that:

-       Utilize moving pictures, photos, words, art materials or a combination to
tell a critical story.
-       Take audiences to places they’ve never been and tell them stories they’ve
never heard.
-       Use unconventional approaches to form and process.

Practically, we expect the projects to have:

-     Adequate additional sources of funding.
-     Reasonable and realistic budgets.
-     A plan for outreach after the project is finished.
-     The potential to reach a national audience (think, could you talk about this
on The Daily Show?)

It is also essential that the project is invested with both the passion and capacity
to be fully completed.

What we expect from our investments:

-        Short regular updates on progress, with photos, clips, etc., in addition to a
final presentation.
-        A clear willingness to work with Mountainfilm to get the story out to a
larger audience.
-        A small thank you credit (on films, etc)
Letters of interest and questions should be directed to

wars and peacetime in between as members of our Post. This is where you may
be able to help. We are asking for you to take on a project in support of our
veterans in which we can work with one or more students or faculty to record
create and edit a video library of these stories. We would help provide the
resources, set up the interviews and you would provide the manpower. This is a

service based organization but are interested ina discussion of partially offsetting
your costs and time. Please let me know if you are interesting in participating in

33. Seeking Summer interns
Date Needed: Summer 2010
Contact Name: Producer Robin Blesch
Contact Email:
Phone : 832-418-0157
UT Affiliation: Former Student
Compensation: Non-paid at first/paid possible
Description: Hello there, I am the owner of an established independent
production company in Austin, TX. A few links to check out first. My resume: Music video example from my
company: Video from Texas Production Incentive
Celebration thrown by my company and film group: Press about that event: Footage example
and PR info from a recent feature film I produced on: View video clips: About Film: Ok, on to what I am doing
this summer and what I'm looking for: I'm in the process of launching a music
section to my company (mostly rap/hip hop/R&B) and this summer a LOT of work
on on executing our plan will be done. I also have a live streaming internet show
about the entertainment industry in Texas that airs weekly online and NOW on
mobile devices that can be worked on, plus film projects in development, and a
NUMBER of other things moving. Example of one rough R&B track we put up for
critique etc. There will be far more than recording
being done this summer, although more of that WILL be going on. Oh and a RED
ONE camera rock music video that I'm producing/directing of Dawn Over Zero is
coming up to be shot real soon. There is just always a number of things going on,
and new things pop up too. I'm looking for production, marketing, editing interns.
I'm looking for the super intelligent over achiever types, that can multitask, learn
really fast, and pride themselves on being the best at anything they touch! If you
are that person, are close to that person, or want to be that person... we will likely
get along like crazy. An internship with me will not be a piece of cake. I will not
lie. It will be intense, but it will benefit you unlike piece of cake internships that
may just waste your time. I am not just looking for some free labor this summer. I
do not have time to keep motivating free labor to work for free. I want people who
feel that interning is working toward something better for them for later, and relish
the opportunity. I offer my interns a LOT, and I expect a LOT in return. I am
looking for the right kind of interns. My star intern last summer built a sizable
resume in only a few months, and this year has been brought back as one of my
partners on my new music venture. Truth be told... I am looking for a few
BADA$$E$ who are dead serious about creating a career in the entertainment
industry. I'm only interested in people who know it takes a LOT of hard work, and
who will treat an internship with my company like a real job in the industry, not
something they thought they wanted to do...but then decided to party all summer
instead. I want people who will do the best they can to learn as much as possible
and then become an asset to what we have working quickly. A lot of tasks can be
done from your home, and will be. Therefore, I'm looking for the self starter types.
I'm also looking for people who would be the type that I will want to have back
again and again and again...not the type I am really sorry that I invested time and
energy into in the end. I've had experiences with both types! I'm not looking for
people to bring coffee to me or people to boss around to feel cool. I am looking
for young fresh undiscovered creative minds that want to work grow and learn by
integrating themselves in with some professionals in the industry while still in
school. Not every task will be exciting, but that is life. :) It can be really fun
working with us though. That is fo-sho! I'm a pretty cool boss...not too cool that
I'm not still the boss though. If this sounds like something you would enjoy being
a part of...send me a cover letter detailing what you feel you have to offer my
team, and what you would like to get out of an internship with my company. Also
provide a resume if you have one, and your contact information. We wil be
scheduling interviews starting this week. If you want more information on my
company or my work, you can find it on google. Take care, Robin Blesch

Here is some news from HQ regarding film genres ...

Detective/Cop, Holiday Film, and Superhero have been retired for the year. In
their place we've brought back popular genres Film Noir, Road Movie, and Silent
Film. And it wouldn't be the 48 Hour Film Project without those three beloved
words: Musical or Western!

After genres have been selected, filmmakers will be given the option to trade in
their genre for a Wild Card Genre. Once you switch, you can't switch back! Wild
Card Genres will be randomly assigned to each city. See the list below.

At the Kickoff Event, each team draws one of these genres from a hat.
Buddy Film, Comedy, Drama, Fantasy, Film de Femme, Film Noir, Horror
Mockumentary, Musical or Western, Road Movie, Romance, Sci Fi, Silent Film,

If you are the lucky team that draws Musical or Western, you have the choice of
making either a Musical or a Western. Or a Musical Western. (Or even a Western

2010 Wild Card Genres, Adventure Serial, Dark Comedy, Foreign Film (only
used in the United States), Heist, Historical Fiction/Period Piece, Mystery
Surprise Ending, Time Travel Movie or Doppelganger Movie, Film de Femme

42. TFPF Benefit Screening: LOVERS OF HATE
Q&A with Bryan Poyser & Special Guests

Thu, 10 Jun, 2010 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

In this delicious tale of deceit and sibling rivalry, two adult brothers, Rudy (Chris
Doubek) and Paul (Alex Karpovsky), represent failure and success. Younger
brother Paul is a successful author who writes Harry Potter-like fantasy novels for
children, while Rudy, Paul’s childhood collaborator on the stories, moves from job
to job, unable to get started on his own novel – the long-gestating “Lovers of
Hate.” The one thing they do have in common is their love for Diana (Heather
Kafka), Rudy’s soon-to-be ex-wife. When opportunistic Paul whisks Diana away
to a romantic mountain retreat (in Park City, Utah, incidentally), the lovers have
no idea that Rudy has made it there first. From the shadows of the posh chalet,
Rudy tries desperately to sabotage their relationship in director Bryan Poyser’s
(DEAR PILLOW) brilliantly executed game of cat and mouse. A testament to
three star-making performances and a tightly constructed script, LOVERS OF
HATE delicately balances humor and despair while pushing characters to painful
and hilarious extremes. There are no clear winners in this savage comedy about
curdled love, but it is one enjoyable ride. Additional screenings at The Alamo

REEL WOMEN would, once again, like to make a call for short scripts for The
Production Group. In the past, REEL WOMEN has produced a short film once a
year, written by and fully crewed by REEL WOMEN members, to help give
members opportunities to work on a real set. This year we are hoping to
producing 2-3 shorts but we need your scripts!

Script Criteria:

   * Must be in standard script format. (If you don’t have access to something like
Final Draft, there are several free options online like Celtx or Zhura)
   * No longer than 10 pages/minutes (the screenwriting rule-of-thumb is that it’s
about a minute per written page)
   * Must be “women subject matter” and/or show women in a positive light or
role. It would be preferred if the story was uplifting. (REEL WOMEN uses these
Production Group produced films when seeking grants and when working with
children of the community.) All genres are welcomed, especially comedies, as
long as it follows our “strong woman” theme.
   * Must be producible on a small budget meaning it must have minimal
locations and characters. No Fires, explosions, floods, and extreme gore.

The REEL WOMEN Production Group offers excellent opportunities for learning
new skills (from operating equipment or writing a budget to breaking down a
script), working as a team, networking, developing leadership abilities, becoming
resourceful (finding props, locations or funding) and taking a project from pre-
production through completion. In following with our mission, the Production
Group is for REEL WOMEN members only.
You must be a RW member to have your script chosen.

You may email your scripts in a .pdf format to, and

OR You may mail your submissions to PO Box 92523, Austin 78709-2523 or you
can drop it by the REEL WOMEN office (make appointment) or Picture Box
Studio (regular office hours).

Now in its eighth year, top-tier, international awards competition, The Accolade,
announces its Call for Entries for filmmakers, television producers and
videographers. The Accolade is unique; it is an awards competition, not a
traditional film festival. Awards go to those filmmakers, television producers and
videographers who produce fresh, standout entertainment, animation and
compelling documentaries. It is a showcase for cinematic gems and unique
voices. Most importantly, The Accolade team works passionately to help worthy
productions gain the publicity and distribution they deserve. That is what The
Accolade is all about: helping winners of this coveted award achieve recognition
and distribution opportunities. Every filmmaker, television producer and
videographer wants credibility associated with their work and buzz about their
productions. The Accolade sends information about Accolade winners via email
to over 25,000 industry professionals. The Accolade is an award recognized for
its rigorous evaluation process by buyers and distributors, inspiring confidence
that winning productions are of high quality. Quality and creativity are celebrated
in three levels of awards: Best of Show, Award of Excellence and Award of Merit.
Best of Show honors are granted only if worthy productions are discovered.
Likewise, no more than 15% of entries are granted Awards of Excellence.
Notable artistic and technical productions are recognized at the Award of Merit
level. Annually, a special award is given to a production that makes a significant
contribution to social change or a humanitarian effort. The Accolade receives
entries from all over the world: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China,
Columbia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, Guam,
Germany, Greece, Haiti, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Malaysia,
Malta, Martinique, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Paraguay,
Philippines, Poland, Puerto Rico, Qatar, Romania, Singapore, South Korea,
Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Kingdom, United States and Venezuela.
MovieMaker Magazine included The Accolade among the Top 25 Festivals
