My name is Chris Fishel and I am applying for the 1st AD position on your upcoming project. I have been Producing, Line Producing and 1st ADing professionally for the past seven years, and I pride myself on running a smooth and all around fun shoot. I'm very interested in hearing more about your project. I have filled the AD and/or producer position in nearly every genre although the majority of my work has landed in the horror/thriller/Sci-Fi and action arena.
I have managed the budget for the majority of the films I've worked on and I have a massive rolodex for connections to crew, equipment, insurance and locations and any other variable that can come in play with a production. I am thoroughly educated on all SAG paperwork and procedure as well as any other production related variables your project calls for. I frequently AD and Line Produce in unison.
I love to completely entrench myself in a project and I have been on set since I was six years old. I work great with all directors, from first timers to veterans, and I adapt to their style and level of experience to create a quality project. My number one goal on every film is to give the director and investors exactly what they're looking for, within budget and on schedule.
I am great with scheduling while maintaining a pleasant shoot experience. I have worked in the $50,000-$5,000,000 range during the extent of my career. All of my budgets and schedules are built in EP Movie Magic Scheduling/Budgeting.
I have attached my resume for your review. I have several references that would be pleased to speak to you if you're looking for referrals from my past directors, producers and financiers. You can also visit my company website at: www.NewViewPictures.com or my imdb page at:
I have been in the industry since 2005.
