Camera Crew Frequently Asked Questions
How does it all work?
We are a distributed global network of locally based content producers, fixers, and camera crews.
Global brands, media companies, advertising agencies and production companies contact us when they are looking for local production support for their next shoot.
Quality control is crucial. As a network we fully vet all production support and camera crews. Likewise, we also vet the clients we connect you to.
Network members both service our projects and refer projects into the collective.
What does it cost?
There are no registration fees to be considered for work. We make money by charging fees once the project is confirmed and paid in full. These fees are independent of your fees.
If I fill in the form will my personal information be made public?
No. Your information will not be publicly listed. The information is kept in a sophisticated backend search engine that only our producers have access to when working to match your information with suitable projects.
This form has so many questions. Why is that?
In order to do the deep searches required to find our clients the perfect crew for their job, we need do have access to a range of important information.
I noticed you ask about day rates. I often package rates based on the entirety of a shoot. Will I be held to the rates I provide you?
No. The day rate is just to give us a rough idea of your acceptable payment range. That way we are not wasting your time with projects that don’t have the budget.
As for the final agreed budget, that will be negotiated on a case by case basis.
I already have exclusive representation in some markets. Will that be a problem?
It’s absolutely fine if you have one or more representatives. Our job is to be nimble and creative in providing our clients with a diverse selection of options from around the world. We do not want to be limited to any particular roster.
If you prefer we contact you for projects through a particular representative or producer, the registration form has a section to include their contact information.
I travel regularly. What do I put as my home-base?
Excellent! You are the exact kind of person we are looking for… a worldly, curious, digital nomad, with a passport and a great eye for shooting stories be they at home or abroad.
For now, just include the location you are based in most of the year. Please make sure to regularly update us with your travel plans and we will put you forward for work in those countries. We’re always looking for talented shooters, particular in under-serviced countries, and our clients love it when we save them on travel costs by piggy-backing off of existing travel plans.
