  • Hello, I'm Jed Parker. I'm a local filmmaker and actor in Sacramento, and I am working on a new short horror film called Party Crasher.

    My team and I are looking for any available cinematographers and/or film editors that may be interested in working with us to make the film. We are gonna be shooting the film throughout this month and maybe even next month before the fall semester starts.

    We won't be able to pay you, but the cast and crew will be fed during filming days. If you are available and would like to help us shoot the film, PLEASE let me know. You can comment below, or message me on Messenger. Thank you very much for your time and consideration!
    • Hi Jed! I'm a composer, new to NORCAL (from Socal). Do you have music for your film? If not, call me and let me know what you have in mind.
      Good luck! Tim McLane 310-429-9070
