I'm in need of experienced cameramen in the Vegas area. The Freestyle Fighting Championship is putting on a private show (with their biggest card to date)on Sept 14 in Las Vegas. They had worked out an agreement with an HD company but it now looks as though this company has truck issues that may not be resolved in time. I've been responsable for producing some of their past shows down here in the south. With the FFC taking this major step forward, it's now time to step up the production to full capacity and then some. This show will be a little different as they will be using a 26'ft cage (vs. a ring). What I'm looking for is someone who has a jib/or even just experience operating one. I'll also need a couple ringside cameramen shooting over the cage from platforms. Anyone with shoulder mount camera(s) would be a great benefit (I have a VX-2000 and a PD-170). I'd prefer not to use smaller cameras. I'd really like to find someone with Sony 300's or better. Chances are that I'll end up renting cameras somewhere in Vegas but if someone already has one or more... I may be on the floor with a Glidecam Smooth Shooter (and therefore a PD-170). This position could also go to anyone with experience as I may also be needed to run the graphics and video to projections. The promoters of the FFC want the production to be of UFC quality. That kinda speaks for itself and what is required. This is not only a big step for the FFC but also a big step for myself (I'm a smalltime event videographer). Anybody interested (or who has contacts) please contact me at shannonberry@655321productions.com or 985-788-7304. Thanks!

Yeah, both Rob and Lee are great! They are two of the most professional promters I have ever worked with. It's been a pleasure being part of their organization! I've gotten one response via email so far (thanks Rich). I'm still looking for more help.

Disregard if this is a double post as my system doesn't seem to be refreshing when I come to this part of the UG. Thanks for the link. That may prove to be a big help.
