Requirements: Speaking spanish a plus. Will work with producer/director on interview setups, logisitics, permits, releases. Does not require producer experience with right personality/temperment. May or may not be working with a local producer (will be interviewing in Rosarito when location scouting).
2nd driver: Drive their own car with some of crew. Probably will be a crew or cast member. All car expenses paid.
Presently have producer, director, location sound mixer and boom operator.
Budget and compensation: This is a low budget gig. Presently considering paying 100-200/day cash + deferred % of profits.
Schedule: 2 days drive to Mexico, overnight in L.A. 2-3 days shoot in Rosarito, possibly adding a crew for 2nd unit. May be additional shooting for compensation by resort and real estate broker.
Expenses: Daily salary for travel and shooting days. All expenses covered (hotel, meals, gas for driver, mexican insurance, any government fees, etc.
Note: Driving is required to get equipment all the equipment into Mexico, so flying is out. Also, you cannot fly directly to Rosarito (no airport) so we will drive. We will also hold first full production meeting on first night because some of the vrew will be picked up in L.A.
Tag line: Many older folks are interested in retiring with a lower cost of living and warmer climate. Rosarito meets these requirements. Original project was geared to retiring in Mexico in general, but due to the common misconception that crime is rampant in exico, now will be exclusively Rosarito because of the tremendous economical opportunities and lack of serious crime.
This will be a very fun shoot. If you want to learn more about filmmaking and working on a fun project, this might be for you. If you are only interested in SAG or AFTRA level compensation, this project is not for you.
Prior experience is good, but attitude and personality is more important. Technical expertise is good, but we do have very experienced crew members on shoot so if you are looking to get your feet wet, consider this project.
