Below is an email I received from Josh, who is looking for a graphic designer to work with him and the rest of their crew on a film. If you'd like more information about collaborating with him, please email email@example.com and I'll forward his email to you.
It was great meeting you the other day at UCLA Extension. Just to recap on our conversation, I am looking for a student who is great with graphic design who can assist me in web design and logo creation. This is totally a collaborative project where creative control is given to the artist as well. We are looking for someone responsible and willing to give their opinion about what works and what doesn't visually. We are looking for someone who is familiar with Hollywood and the scene and feel. Again, this is a collaborative effort and we are not looking to just come in and tell the person what to do. I would rather have them tell me what needs to be done and for us to discuss it and have them carry it out once it has been voted on as a collected unit by my producing team and the artist. We are trying to form a family type atmosphere where the graphic design becomes an official part of the team and has not only a credit on the film but a role in helping us shape it. This is a great opportunity because it allows a student to become involved in the film medium and gains priceless contacts through my Rolodex.
A little background about me. I am currently attending UCLA Extension in their Producing certificate. I have previously worked at the William Morris Agency and currently work at a production company called Mess Media with 4 time Emmy award winner Scott Messick. As I mention previously, I also founded a networking organization that connects people in the entertainment industry together. This is great for any graphic design student because it allows them to gain possible business and future jobs and contacts. I am not some guy off the street looking to make a student do my bidding. I am looking for someone that I can bring into my "family" and begin a continued working relationship with so I can do projects with them in the future as well. I hope this answers some of your questions, if not all. Please let me know if you have anymore questions.
