I have received this email probably 500 times and every time I love it more than the last:
"Hey this is [insert name], I have a shoot on [insert days] and I need a gaffer for [insert project] , are you interested and available?"
The clients, dates and topics are ever changing but one thing has always the same "I need a gaffer".
The thought that people might just type "I need a gaffer" into their search engines as a last ditch effort really amused me. I didn't just want a site with my name plastered all over it so I figured sure, why not. Based on my website traffic reports typing "I need a gaffer" is far more common that I expected and a few people have told me when the site pops up they get a good laugh. They're laughing, I'm laughing, we're all having fun here. Seems like a good fit, lets shoot a great looking video. Now you know the secret.
My main goals are to provide productions a pain free dependable source of quality equipment and to be a skilled collaborator for Directors and DPs.
If you would like to speak on the phone please first send an e-mail with a general outline of what you would like to discuss so that I can be sure to answer all questions quickly and accurately!
