I’m looking for an art director for a True Crime drama called “Don’t Try This At Home” for Discovery ID. It is a low-budget shoot, so it will just be me and one other art person; very small crew to keep with Covid guidelines.
Prep is Monday April 26. Shoot days are 27, 28, and 29, most likely on location in New Jersey. You will be driving yourself to and from set in whatever vehicle we end up renting. Wrap is April 30th. Rate is $300/day (12 hours)
Must be able and comfortable driving a cube truck or sprinter van. Please make sure you have a valid ID that is not expired, as you will not be able to pick up the rental with an expired ID. It would be a bonus if your ID is from New York (not required) but we sometimes pick up weapon rentals that require a NYS ID.
Must have experience on set dressing and propping. As we are very small, I will ask you to dress things on your own, or prop up actors. We move very quickly, as each day we try and shoot the entire recre of an episode.
Applicants who are available for the entirety of the prep,shoot and wrap will be interviewed first.
You will be required to get a Covid test prior to coming to set. Our office is providing tests on Sunday, April 25th, but if you are not available to get that done, the company would refund you back any expenses from that test. This is also a requirement.
And most important, please have a good attitude, and be willing to get your hands dirty! As we are a 2 person team, we will both be performing all the duties of an entire art department crew (including some wardrobe and HMU details).
If you have graphic experience, that is also a plus. We do a lot of printing and photo editing directly on set, so any familiarity with graphic design, and general printing knowledge would be great.
Please email [email protected] with your resume and contact information.
Thanks Cubers, and stay safe and sane out there!
