Dance film in need of C-U talent

From August 26, 2010:

Hi everyone,

My wife and I are gearing up for an upcoming “Dance for Camera” production to be shot in Champaign-Urbana this fall. It will be a medium-length project (around 50 minutes) to be presented at film festivals as well as Dance for Camera festivals. If you are not familiar with the concept, please see DV8: THE COST OF LIVING and Mitchell Rose as references.

Estimated Production Schedule: Flexible; principal photography to start in mid-September/October and tentatively end in December. Most shooting will take place early in the morning in the outdoors, when traffic is at its lowest. Detailed schedule will be discussed with all participants in the projects to fit everyone’s individual schedules to the best of our ability.

Talent: We are looking for…

  • Extras: Dancers, Actors; no restrictions (such as experience, age, gender, etc.)
  • Musicians: If you would like to appear in a project such as ours, please contact us for details.
  • Composers: We need an individual or team to lead the creation of our score. Think The Art of Noise meets Gabrielle Roth.

Crew: We are looking for…

  • 1st AD, Script Supervisor
  • Camera Crew: 1st AC, Steadicam (or equivalent) owner/operator
  • Lighting Crew: Gaffer
  • Sound Crew: Boom Operator

The project is for SCREEN CREDIT ONLY. We have a good concept (we think) and you are welcome to discuss it with us prior to committing to our project. We will also contractually guarantee that the participants’ names will be on every single piece of distributed material – such as fliers, postcards, Web presence, on-line trailers, etc. – unless you choose to opt-out. If you would like to be involved in a different capacity, such fund raising, marketing, etc., we welcome you with open arms.

Important note: If you have no prior experience as a crew member, please do not shy away. I will provide training; it is the least I can do considering your willingness to help and our inability to provide payment.

Please find below a link to a temporary Bio page of myself:

My wife is a dancer/choreographer with vast experience in her field, ranging from major ballet companies to several years of teaching. She is currently teaching at the Dance department of the University of Illinois while also taking classes.

This project is her Master’s Thesis project but will be independently produced and entered in various festivals. What we can guarantee is that this will be fun and intense. If you are interested, you can contact me directly at bheretoiu [at] yahoo [dot] com.

Your support is greatly appreciated! Looking forward to meeting and collaborating with you.

Bogdan Heretoiu
