Production Assistants/Assistant Producers Wanted


Unpaid Positions Available

Bacon & Cabbage Films, a new collective of mostly young Irish emigrant/descended filmmakers, are seeking production assistants/assistant producers based in or around western County Monaghan for a low-budget short surreal film shooting in late October.

The film is about a couple stuck in a faltering relationship find themselves unable to leave their hotel room.

Duties to include:

· To assist in the recruitment of key cast and crew.
· To assist in organising a shooting schedule.
· To take the lead on location scouting and reconnaissance.
· To act as a sounding board for the director.
· To assist in keeping the production on schedule during the shoot.

This job is unpaid but expenses and meals will be provided. It would suit anyone who wants to take their first steps into film producing as a lot of responsibility will be given to the right candidate, and it will be a great chance to make mistakes and learn on the job. Experience is less important than having the right attitude and the will to succeed. If you are a recent graduate (or not) and want to get into film production, we want to hear from you.

This is a really small but exciting film with a small, family-style crew. The hierarchy onset will be loose so you will have a lot of opportunities for experience and collaboration. Everyone is taken seriously on set and am always open to suggestions/input.
