Steadicam needed for complex shots that will only look great on smooth footage.
Will provide a copy of the film, credit, and meals.

Contact me as soon as possible, this is for one of the most important scenes in the screenplay, and it will be shot this Sunday April 29, 2012.

Production Title: Home Sweet Homeless
Production Type: Independent/Student
Project Length: Short Film (10-12 min)
Production Company: King’s Artist
Director: Michael Mike Canon
Producer: Ashley Du
Email: MikeMikeCanon@aol.com
Compensation: No, but meals, transportation costs, DVD copy of film, and reel footage will be provided. P.S. A lot of fun experience!

Shooting Dates: April 29, 2012

A homeless clown, drowned in his alcoholism, watches an ordinary house with an ordinary family, living their ordinary lives--but wait...is he the only one that sees them?

Hi Michael canon,
Welcome to the forum.
While requests like yours are very common, you forgot a very important thing, well a couple of things.
First. Where is the shoot taking place? Munich, Germany? Miami, Ohio?, Anchorage, AK?

Also for many Steadicam operators, we'd need to know what type of camera your providing, etc..

To be completely honest, you probably won't get a single person on these forums to touch this job unless you can actually provide cash. Steadicam operators make a living doing just that, operating a very expensive and hard to use piece of camera stabilization technology. While a lot of people see film making as a hobby or something you do just for fun, these guys pay their bills operating. They don't ask you to do your job for free, why should you ask them to do the same?
I'm not trying to sound like a dick, but if someone is doing something time consuming and labor intensive, you really need to pay them. I won't touch a job for under $500/day, and that's because I've only been operating for about 3 years, I don't have a lot of gear, I'm not in an area with a lot of Steadicam work, and I'm pretty young.
I hope you do find some help for your film though :)
