My sketch group is shooting our first video for a certain well-known comedy website. We're looking for a DP to work with. We've got a very limited budget (only enough to purchase props/equipment rental) so we can't offer to pay, but the site averages about 150k+ views for each of its exclusives, so it'll be a solid portfolio addition.

The Gadget Hour needs a bartender

The Gadget Hour needs a bartender for this week and for weeks to come.

The Gadget Hour is a weekly variety show held at the Richmond Shepard Theatre (26th St. and 2nd Ave) that holds a party at the theatre after the show. Most shows are Friday at 11, including this week, but there is one Saturday show a month.

No bartending skills are necessary (we serve beer and shots) and our only requirement is a willingness to stay to the end of the party.

Our idea is that we will have a different "guest bartender" every week so we can help line the pockets of our many soon-to-be-but-not-yet-rich improv, sketch and stand-up friends. So if you're looking to make some extra cash, e-mail us at:

thegadgethour [at] gmail [dot] com

And if you don't know the name, Gadget is:
Caitlin Bitzegaio, Jocelyn DeBoer, Nick Kocher, James McCarthy, Brian McElhaney, Patrick Noth, Grant O'Brien and Zack Phillips


Sound Mixer

For collaboration on a short film project that is on going through the first three months of the year. There is then potential to continue for the rest of the year. This is unpaid for the whole cast and crew. The emphasis is on quality work on a low budget scale.

If you are interested please email relevant information to:

echogen {at}

'y' as in yahoo.

This post will be updated as each position is filled.
