You prefer working on intimate sets in small passionate teams.

You have experience with a range of camera gear, pariticularty RED & ARRI, but aren’t fussed about famous brands, you can create magic with your phone.

One-minute video of yourself, just say ‘hi’ introduce yourself, let us know what your are about. (does not need to be professionally done, you can use your phone) This is the best and only way we are able to meet every applicant.
