I am about to begin production on a short independent film that's been in the works for a month or so. I began with a small crew but many of them have since lost interest so I am looking to get some more, enthusiastic people on board! The film is a road trip comedy & coming-of-age film. You are more than welcome to read the script/summary before you commit to helping!

You don't have to have any experience, just enthusiasm and a decent availability. There will be 8 filming days at various locations around Auckland, you won't have to be on set for every day of shooting but you are more than welcome to be if you'd like to! Filming will be over the next month/month & a half, and varies between day & night shoots.

Please be aware this is an entirely independent project, and I am not an experienced filmmaker. This being said, once post-production is complete, the goal is to try our luck at festivals. I am looking for people who want to have fun, get experience, and work together to create a great project. You're welcome to decide for yourself how you want to help but some of the jobs to do will be:
- set dresser
- lighting assistant
- wardrobe, hair, & make up
- continuity
- location scouting (if you get in touch before we finish pre-production!)

Thanks so much for your interest and I hope to hear from you!
