Camera-operator/cinematographer for a short film

My name is David Burgoon, I am a student at the conservatory of Amsterdam. I am currently working on a short film I will write and direct, with music that I will compose. The story is inspired by the documentary ‘Jamie: Drag Queen at 16’. The story, tentatively titled 'Luka's Verjaardag', centers around the relationship between a teenage boy who wants to be a drag queen and his mother. He and his mom have been abandoned by their husband/father, leaving all kinds of scars in the lives of Luka and his mother. The film story plays out over the course of two days: his sixteenth birthday and the following day. You see his mom attempt to support her son, gifting him a pair of red stiletto heels on his birthday. But along the way, meaning well, she also lies and makes mistakes of judgment. What do they need to overcome their (different kinds of) pain and loss? What does the boy need to dare to be himself? I intend this to be a funny yet heartbreaking story about identity, parenthood, abuse and coming-of-age.


I am looking for a cinematographer/camera operator.

The film will be 10-15 minutes in length, shot over the course of 3 to 4 days. Shooting will take place in January - beginning of February, the exact dates are dependent on the availability of the cast and crew. Beside the shooting days, I would also like some moments to discuss the shoot and planning.

Functie eisen / profiel
The tone of the film will be intimate, uncomfortable and dreamy – containing a lot of long takes, the majority shot in close-up. I’m ideally looking for a filmmaker able to produce a 'feel' similar to the work of Jean and Luc Dardenne and Celine Sciama – but of course I’m hoping for and open to the creative ideas of the cinematographer/camera-person with whom I shall work. The camera operator will shoot the film in its entirety, preferably with his/her/their own equipment. While the film is going to be Dutch-language, the cinematographer/camera-person whom I seek need not speak Dutch.

Wat bieden wij?
The camera operator will get paid 200 euros a day (negotiable).
