Auteur Seeks DoP-Camera Operator

Hello,

I am an Auteur (i.e. unpretentiously and compelled to be a writer-director-producer -production designer+) seeking a DoP-Camera Operator/Kindred Soul for a long-term collaboration over many projects, who can help me express the vision I have constructed over many years, which is based on:

- A detailed and distinct existential philosophy and related 'way of seeing' that underpins the type of films I wish to personally make, in union with the form (shot-by-shot) that they will take.
Please visit majnunfilms.com for more details.

- An attraction to long meditative takes, visually static tableaux, the objective Brechtian gaze, which respects an an active audience.

- Freedom from a dogmatic need for cliched narrative, or didactic storytelling.

- Minimal dialogue in favour of actor movement, production design and props (i.e. films that show and don't simply tell)

Filmmakers I am most drawn to include: Elia Suleiman, Ulrich Seidl, Michael Haneke, Carlos Reygadas, Roy Andersson, Ruben Ostlund, Michel Franco, Amat Escalante, Mehmet Can Mertoglu, Todd Solondz to name a few.

If you can appreciate what I am aspiring to do, recognise and have enjoyed works by the filmmakers above, are flexible and open-minded, and also want to create truly meaningful and distinct work, please contact me by messaging me at mandy.com or via my website at www.majnunfilms.com

Thank you.

Hi there,

I am a freelance DoP based in London.

I have shot a wide range of music videos and short films which can be found at www.samueldonvito.com

I like the sound of your approach to filmmaking and your appreciation for long meditative takes; it sounds very interesting!

If you are interested in collaborating on a project or speaking about one you currently have in pre-production, please don't hesitate to get in touch!

All the best,
