MajorCinema is Looking for Crew Members
MajorCinema LLC is looking for a crew for out upcoming film Blackwood. Blackwood in essence is a nod to the 1980’s horror franchise and the fans that adore them. Think Friday the 13th meets House of 1000 Corpses. Although it is a Horror / Thriller, it has a lot of personal touches and elements that make the film something that is a fun ride, unique in its own ways and still something that people have seen before and enjoy seeing.
The film Starts around Mid September and We are looking to be wrapped up with principal photography around November 1st at the latest. As many of our actors and others involved with the film have a varying availability, we have a tentative shooting schedule. However once we learn the availability and nonavailability of our crew members, we would most defiantly schedule the shoot around days that would work for them. We will have dates to stick to. You would be given a shooting schedule before hand, and you would be need as much as possible throughout the period of September 15th through November 1st. We will be shooting in West Michigan with a primary emphasis in Muskegon.
