Production Assistants Sought

We are a small, independent production team coming out to Portland, Oregon in the month of May 12th-17th. We are currently looking for PAs for our production. There is no pay but travel will be reimbursed and food will be provided.

We are also currently looking for a new grip for our production and would like to throw it out to the community in Oregon. Demo reels are required and pay is negotiable.
Information on the film can be found at:
Any assistance would be appreciated.
Cheers and thank you,
Christopher Cross

Composer Seeks Collaborators

My name is Bill Hoshal and I’m a composer and sound designer here in Portland. I compose music for all media in all styles ranging from classical orchestral to jazz and ethno-world.

The title of your proposed project: I Want to Be Recycled

A detailed description of your project:

 

Every day, the average American generates 4.4 pounds of trash, which is 1,600 pounds annually. Keep America Beautiful and the Ad Council have partnered to educate Americans to recycle more, educate them on how to recycle right and help them to make recycling a part of everyday life. In 2013, the “I Want to Be Recycled” public service advertising (PSA) campaign was launched to provide simple and helpful tools that inform where and how to recycle.

 

This contest challenges participants to illustrate the importance of recycling in their own voice through either a beauty lens, myth busters angle or community story. The winners of the contest will be announced in early July 2015 with a $25,000 cash prize awarded to the winners. The final videos will be reviewed by campaign partners from the Ad Council, Keep America Beautiful and the award-winning advertising agency Pereira & O’Dell. The videos will be promoted and shared through Keep America Beautiful and the Ad Council communications and social channels.

 

It is your mission to convince the viewer to recycle in a new and/or entertaining way in a 30-120 second video fit for social media. We want you to show us how we can educate people to “Give Your Garbage Another Life” in a meaningful way.
