Producer Wanted For DC Crime Drama Short
After a chaotic night out in the city of Gotham, The Joker is visited by low ranking mobster, Joe Bandano, a member of the Maroni crime family. With help from his accomplice/ mistress, Harley Quinn, Joker not only refuses Joe’s recruitment offer, but uses him as an example of what happens when you underestimate his ambition.
I'm in the early stages of preproduction. With plans to shoot later this year, around July/ August sometime. This film has been a three year on again, off again, writing project, and now I'm finally ready to start putting a crew together.
I won't lie, this film is very much a vanity project, seeing as I wrote it, have plans to direct it, and I want to play the lead role, The Joker. I'm a regular old Tommy Wiseau. But more than anything, this short is a love letter to my favourite character of all time.
Health Ledgers performance in The Dark Knight, is what inspired me to become an actor at 13, and Christopher Nolan is one of my all time favourite directors. You can expect people to draw some similarities from The Dark Knight universe, to my take on the Batman mythos, but I'm striving to create an original story, with original takes on the characters I, and so many others, love.
If you're a somewhat experienced producer, and this at all sounds intriguing to you, then let's talk? I'm looking for someone to help take a bulk of the workload that goes into the preproduction of a film. The script is currently 16 pages long, with the film roughly running for just over 20 minutes. So we're essential making a sitcom length, gritty crime drama, with DC villains.
I've got a lot on my plate with part-time work, other acting jobs, and a social life, so this project will be a slow burn until we have all of the department heads hired. Which is something I need a producers help with. Because I have no idea what I'm doing. Please help.
In all seriousness, I'm doing this project for the love of characters, I think, haven't had a decent cinematic outting together yet. Yes, that's a dig at Suicide Squad. If you enjoyed that movie, this project is not for you.
A full length synopsis is available for anyone interested in hearing more, and if you give me you're email address I can send you the full length script.
At this stage, everyone on the crew will be working for free. Including me. But if we can organise a successful crowdfunding campaign, and possibly find funding or sponsorship, a small sum will be budgeted for all the heads of departments, including production.
Audition / Rehearsal / Production datesTBD
This job is unpaid
Forgot to mention that the short will be filmed in the Brisbane area, and we'll be corresponding mostly through email, until rehearsal dates are scheduled.
