Feature Film Editor
ConfidentialLos Angeles, CA
I recently finished principle photography on my upcoming feature film, 'The Astrid Experience', and we're looking to build a working relationships with a talented independent editor to help us bring in the cut.
The project was built on a WGA screenplay with a great cast. We shot in 4k with anamorphic lenses. It is very much an 'LA indie festival' type of film. Some films that share similar themes and an artistic sensibility are, specifically, 'In Search of a Midnight Kiss', 'Falling Overnight', '6 Years', 'Paper Year', 'Don't Think Twice', and 'The New Romantic'. For a broader, general perspective think 'Gardenstate', since it's mentioned often and most indie film lovers have seen it.
Again, the film is in the can and ready to cut. We're specifically looking to partner with an independent film editor with feature film credits that share a sensibility to our vision and the type of film genre we're operating in, that is, modern day independent dramedies that take place in major metropolitan US cities, such as Los Angeles or New York.
Timeline for the job is 4-10 weeks (depending on editor). Ideally we'd like to have the film done by the end of summer so that we can start hitting festival deadlines in the fall. We're not going to rush this process. We really want this to be perfect and let it take however much time it takes. We'd much rather miss some festival deadlines and have a better film for life, then the other way around.
The project needs to be cut on either DaVinci Resolve or Adobe Premiere, so our editor must be a master of one or both of these programs.
To learn more about the project, simply search 'The Astrid Experience' on IMDB. It has all the preliminary information listed including the log-line, cast attachments, and even some select screen-grabs from our raw footage so you can see some of the basic visuals we got.
Thank you for considering our project and we look forward to reviewing your submissions.
10% Equity partner
-- * IMPORTANT * --
You MUST signify that you are willing to consider working on 10% equity in the body of your submission, and you must signify that you cut professionally on either DaVinci Resolve, Adobe Premiere, or both.
We get a lot of qualified candidates, but when they don't read the rate beforehand it wastes our time and yours. In order to remedy this, we MUST see a note saying ''I am willing to consider working for 10% equity'' in the body of your submission. Applicants without this note in the email will be deleted without consideration. Again, this is all we can offer with this post, we will not be considering any other options here.
Of course, we wouldn't expect you to commit to edit our project for equity without vetting it first, so we just need your consideration to start the application process. Applicable candidates will also have the opportunity to vet the script and view footage/dailies before committing to the project, as it is a story and performance driven film, and we want our ideal candidate to fall in love with the story and performances as much as we have.
