We are looking for an enthusiastic First Assistant Director (First AD) who wants to work together on a short graduation film. You are part of a talented crew, where you contribute to an important social goal; combating stigmas surrounding mental disorders. You will work closely with the director and producers, which is why good communication skills are required. The team consists of both Dutch and English speakers, so it is a must to have a good command of these two languages. Your contribution will be necessary to realize the director's vision. This project offers a dynamic and challenging environment, as the cinematography and narrative distort reality and push the boundaries between surrealism and realism. We will be shooting at interesting locations, such as a nightclub, night shop and subway. As a First AD you will have many responsibilities. We strive for an environment of collaboration and creativity, in which everyone can make their contribution. Our crew is growing fast with new creative and talented people.
