Be part of a team that will be moving a, mid-sized budget, feature film into production.
This is a unique scifi fantasy picture that could be considered a cross between Pitch Black and 300, titled 'From Darkness'. A well reviewed story that is both commercial on it's face, as a brutal survival horror, and unique in rich use of metaphor around human relationship. Details can be provided off line.
The script has faced a number of purchase and option offers, before moving ahead in my hands. I've now been given a clear mandate by investors as to what will be needed to roll out financing for the project. Distributors and production partners are to be pulled in upon completion of this package.
As many of you know, larger scale projects are built on the legs of solid financing, distribution partnerships, leverageable talent and experienced production leads. This is what is being built and I would like to extend an invitation for a specific person to join me in this phase of the development.
I'm looking for a Toronto based intern, familiar with script breakdowns and Movie Magic Scheduling (also Movie Magic Budgeting, if possible). You don't have to be a seasoned expert in crafting these elements, as I will also be working to dial in the schedule and cost figures for production to meet the sub 10 million budget demands, but you should have a basic familiarity with one of, or both of, these programs.
The schedule and the budget are elements that will be made ready for other partners, financiers, distributors and bankable talent. You can work remotely, if you have the software, or you can work from my location, if access to the program is needed.
As the project moves ahead, I'll want to bring this person along with it, so if you are interested or know anyone that is... Pleased respond to or forward this note by contacting me through private message. I look forward to discussing more with you directly.
PS - I am only filling this particular position for now. That said, inquiries from experienced potential production partners are welcome.
