OTHER NOTES:

Hello there,

I am shooting my Thesis film at Brooklyn College and I’m in need of a production designer. You will need to be available on November 6th and 7th for the actual installation. Fine Art Students or Recent Graduates are welcomed! You would need to be experienced with installations. The scenes require a re-creation of a psych ward common room with an office window and office door as well as an exiting door with a real lock and key. Think: “One Flew over the Cuckcoo’s Nest” set design. The second scene requires a tiny patient room with a tiny jail-like bed frame built for the set or maybe just a small bed frame that I could purchase. The third scene is the inside of an office, but I’m sure some how this could be cheated with an existing office. Maybe these walls could be interchangeable so that the common room can be doubled as the patient room? Being a film student, I am on a low budget so I am offering $500 compensation. I am ideally looking for some one with contacts to prop houses and production studios. Please send some samples of your work. I am looking forward to meet ASAP! SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY

Thanks so much and I look forward to hearing from you.
