Looking for a cameraman in Lebanon/to fly to Lebanon

Hey all,

My cameraman had an emergency change in plans.

We were planning to fly to Beirut from Toronto to continue shooting a project on Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon (hoped to be in Lebanon end of September-middle October, but that is flexible). I’m looking for a cameraman either to fly with me to Beirut or to shoot with me there.

Here’s the deal: this is a self-funded project. Unfortunately, I will not be able to pay. We’ve raised enough funds for tickets, so I will be able to cover your travel. The story is comparing the living conditions in two of the largest camps in Lebanon: Nahr el Bared (former marketplace in the North) and Ain el Helweh (camp controlled by 16 factions).

The trailer for the film is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXOHGoh6mEI

I know this is not the best deal financially and I apologize for that; but it is a fascinating story. Please e-mail me if interested.

Thank you!

My apologies David, some glitch in YouTube made all my videos unavailable. I’ve re-uploaded it, the link should work now.

No worries—-got it now—-nice editing and split from the old footage to the new and I also liked the images through the text in the end. Good choice with 12 stories, kind of prophetic, right!

Good Luck finding a cameraman—-things usually work out and I am sure you will be fine.

cheers, bro

Hi Anastasia, I think we had contact before. I will forward your request to my contact in Beirut, they might be interested. Very curious at the results, as we (War Child) are active in El Helweh (doing creative and psychosocial activities for children and youth). Have visited it twice.

All the best and good luck with your project.

Hi Michiel,

Yes, we did talk before. If you could send me your contact info, I can send you a copy of the project when it’s finished (around spring 2013). Are you in Lebanon right now by the way?

Thank you!
