SPIRIT IN THE FLESH – Interns needed
Cinemabody needs interns to participate in an exciting experimental independent film, Spirit In Flesh, conceived and directed by Amy Greenfield
Job: Assistant to director. Skills: excellent Final Cut Pro, video camera, organization, web skills, and desire to work on low budget film where people shoot from the hip. There will be a travel stipend and meals will be paid for. (see below for more information).
Interns who have participated in previous projects with CinemaBody were started on their careers by the credits and recmmendations they received from Amy Greenfield. They have become an A-list feature film editor; the #1 film grip in NYC; cinematographer for one of Greenfield’s award-winning short film which screened in the Berlin Film Festival.
Cinemabody is the umbrella for award-winning independent/ experimental film-maker Amy Greenfield’s projects. Her films have been exhibited at the Berlin Film Festival, The New York Film Festival, The Edinburgh Film Festival, won top prizes at the Houston, Atlanta, Williamsburg Film Fests and more ; screened at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA); Lincoln Center, National Gallery of art, and garnered such raves as a 10 Best in the Arts in the New York Times.
The project, Spirit In The Flesh, transforms the photography series, Shekhina, by Star Trek star – turned – photographer, Leonard Nimoy, into a film joining performance, words, music (by downtown music star, John Zorn) with Nimoy’s photographs to bring to the screen a personification of Shekhina – in Kabbalah, the invisible female divine spirit which is the animating force in ourselves and our world. The film, like the photographs, takes as its aim to create, “The photographic image of the invisible” (Nimoy). The film will transform a multimedia performance presented in Manhattan in 2009.
Half the film has been shot. The video excerpt below is an in-progress demo made from an excerpt of the footage already shot. Interns will work with the filmmaker on rough edits, helping to generate ideas for Greenfield’s professional editor. See the demo of excerpt below. Simultaneously, we will be rehearsing for new sections then plan to shoot them late fall. Interns will gain multiple experience and credits on the film. For instance, part of the performance footage in the demo was shot by my intern, who also worked on internet PR for the multimedia performance.
