  • I've been asked to wrangle some extras for a commercial shoot on Thursday of next week, and thought I would give UHX first crack at it.

    The details:

    *it pays $200 for a one day shoot
    *you are responsible for getting yourself to the location, which is on Sauvie Island
    *it is a commercial, but not for a product(I can give you more details offline)
    *we are especially looking for POC and peeps w/kids or outside the usual 20s/30s but all
    are welcome to contact me

    If you are interested and available, please email me via ASAP!

    Important note:

    If you've never been part of a shoot before, please consider these factors before replying:
    The shoot goes ALL DAY. Your call time may be 8a or 7a (I don't think it will be hella early but who knows) and YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR GETTING YOURSELF THERE AND BACK. If you don't have a car and/or are not capable of waking up at the ass crack of dawn to take 3 buses and bike your way to the location then forget it. You are also being hired for the whole day, so the "Oh I'd love to btw my reg job starts at 5p so I'll have to be done by then" is not happening. This is an outdoor shoot though so it will not go beyond sunset. Also if there is ANY CHANCE you may flake due to ANYTHING less than a car accident/massive family trauma the day before, this is not the job for you. No "I'm just feeling too bummed" or "a more fun thing came up so I can't make it" or "I am sooo hungover, too bad i didn't set my alarm last night!"

    Sorry to be way harsh, the Portland work ethic can bump up against the film production approach in a gnarly way, and I want to forestall any possible drama.

    If you are responsible and have transpo and get selected, then you'll get paid decent to hang out on Sauvies all day and read your book and eat snacks and occasionally hold stuff up on set!
  • People of color.
  • Interesting small job for a web developer. Bonus if you are interested in transit/transportation.

  • If you're looking for a job - need money, need benefits - I highly recommend you keep an eye on the Kaiser Permanente job board (unless you hate KP, which seems to be the case for a lot of people, but I have not had a bad experience...).
  • Remember when you were in a band or were a band helper? (maybe you still are..) Got AV skills?

    Hi all. I'm looking for Oregonians who are excited about the affordable care act and want to share their stories about what the new healthcare exchange is going to mean to them, personally. We will be capturing brief testimonial style videos that will be used in a TV commercial. The shoot is slated to shoot in Portland on Oct 9th and 10th. There will be compensation for time and travel and each participant will only need to come for part of one of the above mentioned days.
