CINEMATOGRAPHER - Uniquely Visual Drama/Dark Comedy Short Film

Short Film
Posted by: Mr Hyde Films
Gig Location: Los Angeles, CA
Pay: $400/day

We are seeking a cinematographer equipped with their own camera package (RED, ARRI) for our Short Film. This project is truly a cinematographer’s playground and will be a career elevating project in a portfolio.

Further details on the project/team in our PITCH DECK and SCRIPT will be shared for qualified candidates.

Our short film is fresh, entertaining and a wildly tormented emotional ride. A tragic comedy with deep dramatic roots centering around our multi-layered female protagonist in a visual and emotionally textured world. This story also engages the timely discussion of social media’s more destructive side in today’s feverish online climate.

The Director and Lead Actor(F) have extensive award winning experience in film/tv. Our lead actor works non stop and is on the rise in her career with leading roles in productions for Netflix, Disney and Hallmark this past year alone. Our Director is a visual force with extensive industry roots in narrative genre and more recently brings years of experience in visual experimentation from the Beauty commercial industry.

The script just placed as a semi-finalist in the top 3% (top 40 scripts out of 1400 worldwide) in the influential Screencraft screenplay competition. Script also received great early coverage from SlamDance and The Golden Script competition (for which we’re still awaiting competition placement announcements later this year) - predicting it as a strong potential festival contender.
