Short film The Site Project, which combines site-specific performance and dance, and has picked up an Exeter Phoenix Devon Short Film Commission, is seeking crew to assist on their film.
The film aims to offer opportunities for both students and the local community; casting from both sectors regardless of previous dance experience. The filmmakers will invite audiences to reconsider familiar locations in Exeter that are sometimes overlooked or undiscovered.
They say: “These sites will be the basis of us choreography with particular emphasis on everyday pedestrian movement. In this way we hope to make dance a more accessible art form whilst exploring the possibilities of site specific performance.”
The team is after:
Lighting Technician (expenses only)
You will be required to set up equipment on site and to help create the desired lighting according to the time of day and the position of the performers bodies in space.
Due to the nature of the project we will be shooting at odd hours of the day e.g 2am and so you must be prepared to be on location at these times.
This is a great opportunity to gain some hands on experience in lighting. It is a a unique project in that we will be recording on several different sites and at different times of the day.
Sound Editor (expenses only)
Experience in sound recording and editing would be required. We would like to see some of your prior work.
You will be recording sounds from in and around Exeter and our selected sites and editing them alongside our footage to create a rhythmic soundtrack.
We will be inspired by the work of Elizabeth Price -see her short film ‘The Woolworth Choir of 1979’ (below)
This is a unique opportunity as it involves a combination of recording and selecting sounds from locations whilst creating an original sound score from scratch. In this way the Sound Editor will play a fundamental role in the filmmaking process.
Camera operator (expenses only)
Must be comfortable with setting up with a variety of different cameras and equipment. You will be out on location with us recording both the choreography but also collecting additional shots for transitions etc. Due to the nature of the piece you must be willing to film at odd hours of the day eg 2am.
This is a great way to gain hands on experience on a unique project and a way to explore filming on different locations.
