I am seeking an emerging producer (please see definition in the eligibility criteria below) to work with me on a feature-length horror project, “Baby Fever”. Female producers are encouraged to apply for this role, though anyone may apply.
I’m in the process of applying for a grant for $150,000 to fund the project (if you saw my post yesterday, the amount has updated). The initial work for this project will involve some help in the completion of the application (i.e. developing budget, promotion and distribution plans). If we don’t receive the grant, I will tweak the proposal for other funding opportunities until it’s obtained. No further work will need to be done until we acquire funding.
Once we have funding, you’ll receive an appropriate rate for your role. Before that happens, I’ll be able to offer you a flat fee of $300 as payment for your help with the application (it will involve a bit more initial work than the co-director role). Even if I don’t procure funding until a while from now, you’ll be the first person I contact for the role, going forward.
Once we are all set to start, the role will involve further scheduling, hiring, securing of locations, building call sheets, etc. You will have some assistance with these tasks.
The script is based on a short story published in 2018, which is available for free at the link below:
Logline: A woman discovers a new, sinister side to her husband after she has a miscarriage.
The head editor of the journal let me know that they’d promote the film however they can (they have a circulation of 10k+, according to Poets & Writers). I also have a short film in distribution by the Canadian Filmmakers Distribution Centre, and they’re interested in taking more work from me.
In your application, please send along:
· Your resume
· A cover letter detailing your experience in production, working with budgets of this size, and/or grant writing
· Any examples of your past work that you’d like to show off
· You must have produced at least one short film. You must not have produced a feature-length film OR have produced just one feature-length film with a budget of $250,000 or less OR have produced just one feature film that was funded by the Telefilm Talent to Watch program.
· You must be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident.
Please send applications or any questions along
Thank you! I’ll be in contact with applicants to schedule a short interview on the 18th or 19th (if you are unavailable for both of these dates, we may be able to arrange for an alternative date).
