From the post:

"We're doing a mockumentary. We need to shoot a quick scene in Santa Monica tomorrow at 12:30PM. Our actor (dressed as a police officer) is going to go into the middle of the intersection of 3rd and Wilshire - direct traffic for a few moments - drop his pants - deficate in the middle of the street - and then run away. We can only shoot the scene once. We have two other camera operators. However, we've decided at the last minute to add a third. You'll be shooting from street level.

You must be familiar with a Red camera. You'll be going MOS. The actor will be lapelled.

The pay is $150 cash. (paid at the end of the shot). There will be NO credit given as this is obviously a non-permitted shot.

Please send resume if interested."

This sounds like a great opportunity!

Wow

Sounds like a wonderful opportunity. Right up there with that one craigslist post where they were looking for a camera operator to hang out of a 15 story window with a roofers harness and cheap plastic rope....

A few days ago, I saw a posting seeking a camera operator willing to scale a highway sign and shoot a car passing underneath it (no safety rope, permits, etc etc). Love it!
