Lightbulb TV/Documentary Maker Looking For Adventure

Salutations,

My name is Jeremy Lee Nicholas Luman a TV editor/producer and documentary film maker looking for an epic journey to be filmed. I am open to ideas of locations, but I am mainly shooting for a voyage to islands in open oceans that are either totally uninhabited or have a unique culture. This is not limited to the sea. Travel abroad to land locked countries is also encouraged. Interested? The costs of filming an endeavor will be that of a standard documentary being that the inquirer pays 50% upfront and 50% after the "video safari." Contracts will be signed via online signature. If you frequently set sail and are looking for exposure to the Television World send a reply or an email for more information.

I have 5 years of experience in Video and Audio Editing with advanced training in Adobe Audition and Final Cut HD.

Here are a few recent projects of mine you might have viewed:
  1. Blinded Black: This Ship Is Going Down
  2. As Forever Fades
  3. Access Television
  4. Impact TV (A News and Debate Show)
  5. Illuminating Electronics (Host for a Technology Show)
  6. Music Videos for National touring artists such as With Wings of Lead, Whitechapel, Hit the Lights, August Burns Red, and Death Cab for Cutie
  7. C-SPAN (Video Blog Guest)
  8. 820am WSWI (Commercial Editor/Producer)
  9. Evansville Museum Exhibition Documentor
  10. Red Geranium Enterprises Advertising Staff
  11. October Promotional Design (Videographer/Editor/Marketer)

[all projects listed are within the past 6 months]

I dont understand. They pay you to sail them around and let you film them?

I don't get it. I must have miss-read.

Having only worked on a few hundred documentaries I might not know what I'm talking about; but I'll speak anyway!
All legitimate documentarians avoid paying for or getting paid by their subject except for actual costs incured and perhaps pay the subject a very small stipend. Anything more removes the documentary label and becomes an entertainment program.
The only people who appear on camera that get paid are the presenters (reporters).

Hey, I have a digital camera so I guess that makes me a photographer. Anyone want to sail me to exotic places so that I can shoot a photo documentary. Since they will be still images, and not video, you only have to pay me half what the guy above is asking.

The purpose of this endeavor is NOT for "entertainment" but as a non-profit video to be presented to the CPB (also known as PBS). Therefore, the title must remain "documentary" as it being a form of PSA in documentary form. The intentions are neither to swindle money nor to fool, but to instead document an excursion to remote islands in the seas (ex. The French Antarctic Islands). Me being the only crew member of this documentary also makes it a self-proprietor film. If my intentions were to gain a "free ticket around the globe" I have posted this thread on craigslist, not a serious website like sailnet.

The only "payments" I needed would be that of the fuel used while on the journey. The 50% is just for pre-production planning and the actual editing of the video after the shoot. As a journalist, I've had all travel expenses paid by my station but this is freelancing in order to submit to the interest of the public.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

We should hook him up with the "What kind of Sail is this" ferrocement owner. I think they would hit it off just wonderfully.

This is non-profit, I can see where you'd get the idea. The first post states that I am looking to work together with an individual interested in this film idea. This is not a one way road. Which is also why I am interested in hearing others' ideas. I am searching for suggestions, not ridicule.

Thank you.

so you are expecting the sailor to finance your doc? How much are you asking in this 50% down and 50% later plan?

What format are you shooting on?
