An old friend from the Shining Days now teaches at LA Film School and asked me to recommend a new op with equipment to shoot most of an exciting in-house feature film for them for deferred salary. Please contact Ariel Levy directly with your resume. I suggested maybe several LA ops could tag-team this to coordinate to work around 'real' jobs. Here's his e-mail:

Hi Garrett,

Good to catch up with you and my apologies for intruding into your vacation.

My movie is called, "After Midnight" and starts shooting on Monday or Tuesday for 4 weeks. It is a psychological thriller which we will make in two buildings I have the use of, in Hollywood, opposite the Arclight Theater.

The key people are professionals, the second positions are gifted alumni of the LA Film School, and the bulk of the crew are currrent students of the school.

Bob Stevens is the cinematographer and a mad Englishman by the name of Rob Walker is the director.

I am looking for someone who might relish the opportunity to develop their skills by working throughout the movie, most of which we would like to shoot on the steadycam rather like you did on the Shining.

We have no money so are looking for a person who would agree to a deferred deal to the sale of the movie.

Any thoughts please contact me on: 310 948 2113-cel or 323 468 3014-office or e mail.

I much appreciate any help you can give.

Ariel Levy

If only I didn't live in Australia now......! This'll be a good break for some lucky bugger no matter how tough the gig. Maybe next time.
