We are looking for a Producer for our feature film, Sonny Boy ( www.SonnyBoytheFilm.com ), that we are shooting in Oakland this August. Most of our Producers are located in Los Angeles. We are a female-lead production team and director, with an Asian-american creator and star of the film. We need support in Oakland to work with and support our one team member (Writer/Producer of the project) who lives there until the rest of the team arrives in the Bay Area prior to shooting.
This is a unique opportunity for someone who is looking for Producer credit on a feature film. We hope to find someone who has experience in film, but most importantly understands the scope of the position, and is excited to jump on board. We are crowdfunding our funds this May-June, our launch date is May 29th. The pay is TBD, but to be completely transparent, it will be low. Most of our core team have various experience in film and TV, but we are making a feature out of love and for experience making a feature film.
We are looking for someone with a go-getter attitude, who is not afraid to jump in and wear many hats. Including the many various Producer duties, we specifically need help with everything local, including (but certainly not limited to): locking in locations; finding, meeting with/vetting and locking in crew, meeting with local schools, help with local casting, and much more.
This is not a job for the faint of heart, but it is a unique opportunity for someone at the right place in their career. We have an amazing group of Producers and a talented DP attached, and are looking for the right person to join our team.
If this fits you or someone you know, please have them

We are looking for Associate Producers to help finance production for our unique feature film called Sonny Boy. Starring an Asian American lead, Sonny Boy tackles some heavy issues including redefining ones sense of purpose, coping with family dynamics and sickly parents, and moving back to ones hometown after hardships.
Logline: A struggling writer returns home to Oakland in pursuit of purpose and reconciliation with his dying father.
We have a diverse team of producers (mostly female, including our female director) who have been working on Sonny Boy's social media presence on Facebook and Twitter for a couple months, and we are getting ready to launch our Seed & Spark Financing Campaign on May 29th. We will be attempting to raise $65,000 in our first campaign. We will also be doing a second campaign (for post production costs) for which we will need the same support from our associate producers.
Assuming the Associate Producer duties are completed, you will be guaranteed credit in the film as such, an IMDB credit, and letter of recommendation for future projects. How can an Associate Producer credit be earned? 1) An Associate Producer credit can be earned by contributing $2,000 or more to Sonny Boy's financing either by self-donation or raised however you can. It doesn't matter. Don't Have $2000?
2) An Associate Producer credit can also be earned by sharing our Campaign posts daily on all of your social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) to help us gain followers and financing.
We are also reaching out to any media, press, corporations, etc. that could be interested in supporting a diverse story told by a diverse group of people. If you have any questions or would like more information regarding the Associate Producer duties, or anything else about Sonny Boy, please don't hesitate to contact us. We are currently filling a variety of positions and roles on the film. Our campaign will be launched May 29th and will last thirty days.
Thank you so much for your time and consideration.
