Seeking PUNK’D Minder Videographer/Director
- Experience shooting and directing clips
- Vivid Imagination and Crazy Sense of Humor
- Must own camera package (camera, lighting, HD preferred but not required)
- Has own transportation
- The type of person who can walk up to anyone and strike up a conversation
- Clear understanding of our brand and what we want to accomplish
> We’re a twisted startup looking for a twisted Director/Videographer who has a creative approach to directing surveillance style footage. Think PUNK’D.
We have various type of pranks that we want to run in public spaces ranging from subtle and subdued in tone to loud and outrageous scenes that really grab the attention of all people in the space. On the more subtle side, we also want to capture people’s reactions to reading something shocking like a twisted fortune cookie without knowing that they’re being caught on camera.
We want to produce our own flash mobs. Imagine bringing your ideas and directing a flashmob of people to follow your every twisted command! The wackier the better!!!
The ideal collaborator is…COLLABORATIVE. You have great ideas as to how to shoot these scenes BECAUSE you’re both creative and you love the project. You see how crazy we are and want to be involved with crazy creatives.
Think PUNK’D or anything Sacha Baron Cohen has done ( Ali G, Borat or Bruno) or remember Tom Green? We want to mess with people creating a hilarious and sometimes uncomfortable environment. Is this something that gets you amped? If yes, we wanna hear from you.
ILLuStRator emulating the style of Steadman or Sendak
- You should be able to list your favorite graphic and comic novels backwards and forwards
- A crazy and vivid imagination
- Can quickly analyze a story pitch and have the drawing warp into your mind
- Previous storyboard skills preferred
- Great story and presentation skills
- Bold, Daring and not afraid to voice your ideas
- Can capture every single compelling detail
The iLLustrator we’re looking for has an edgy style with a distinct look. This comic is crazy edgy and not at all for uptight conservatives - young audience and we’re confident that we will gain a strong internet based following. Put it this way: The main character is not so balanced.
The artists who appeal most in terms of style for this comic are Dave McKean, Ralph Steadman, Maurice Sendak and Mark Eastbrook (http://www.markeastbrook.co.uk/markeastbrook_gallery.html) OK yeah, so there’s a range here but the point is if these artists have influenced you and your style is similar at all to one or more…well we wanna talk to you!
We are a collaborative team and expect nothing less from you! We want your wacky ideas and to be able to show off your work on a weekly basis our strip! The crazier you are… the better. Just not crazy in a flaky way ;) Or else we will have to get our alien to probe you (kidding…) but you should have a fine balance of work ethnic and humor! We love that.
This is an urban theme based story - we will start in San Francisco but our characters will travel to other cities (LA, NY, etc.) and we will be implementing a hybrid style of photography and illustration -
We’re a start-up and have a low budget $75 for a weekly comic ($300/month). If this is insulting we understand. Just laugh and move on.
