Great Responses

A couple of days ago I posted a request for crew on this website, also a couple of other places. Since then I have been amazed by the positive responses I have received. Thank you all so much.

I have also been, truth be told, a bit overwhelmed. I am still going over the responses right now. So please be patient. I am going to try and contact everyone who has e-mailed me by Friday. Stay tuned for more information. Again, thank you.

Open Call for Film Crew

I am looking for a few people who are willing to help out behind the scenes on the movie Go Man, Go. If you are interested, please contact me at

I am looking for people who are going to be passionate about the project. If you are looking to try something new in your life, this would be a great opportunity. Experience isn't all that important to me, but I won't say no to a little talent. I also need people who can be relied upon. I am trying to keep the time requirements for people down, but I would still need people for a couple of nights and a few weekend days over the course of the summer. These will also be paid positions, so it should be a fun way to do something new and earn a little extra money.

Here are the positions I am looking for. 

  • Cinematographer: This person will be both the cameraman and direct the photography. They will be responsible for making sure we get the shot. Again, experience isn't necessary. I would rather have someone how is excited about filming. 
  • Action Cameramen: Much of the movie will be of people moving on bikes. I need probably two people who can operate a camera and ride a bike. I am still working on the details. I might go with a small action camera, like a Contour or GoPro. If this sounds like fun to you, let me know. 
  • Sound Tech: We will probably also need a sound tech. Someone who can record the sound on set. 
  • Lighting Tech: Some parts of the film will be shot at night. I am not sure how much lighting we will need to get the shots, but I would like someone who could help out if we need them. This person would work closely with the cinematographer.
  • Assistant Director: The AD will manage the set, making sure that everyone is in place and everything is where it needs to be.
  • Production Assistant: This person would be involved in a ton of different stuff. Arranging meetings. Calling people to make sure they will be on set. Running errands. My guess is this person will log the most hours. 
  • Casting Director: I need a person to help out with casting during April. While the casting will most likely be somewhat informal, I think a second opinion would be quite beneficial. 

If you think you would be a good fit in one of these areas, let me know. If you would like to help out, but don't know where you fit in, let me know that as well. I am happy to work with anyone who is interested.

Again, any questions feel free to e-mail me at

Oh, if you want to be in front of the camera, that is great. I hope to begin casting next month. You can let me know any time, though.



Welcome to the blog for the production of Go Man, Go. This is a fictional, feature length movie about riding bikes in Seattle. The movie will cover topics like alley cat racing, group rides, and even a bit of mountain biking. I want to express the fun and humor of being a cyclist in the city. For those of you who do ride, a lot of the movie should be familiar.

The script is completed, but now I need to put a cast and crew together. My time line looks something like this:
  • March: Put together a crew.
  • April: Put together a cast. 
  • May-September: Film the movie.

Most of the filming will take place at night, or on weekends. Hopefully this will integrate well with the schedules for other people who are interested in being a part of the project.

This film does have a budget. The people in the cast and crew will be paid, though the number of hours will probably be low. Don't quit your day job kids. I am also hoping to sponsor a few events during the summer, like some group rides, and a Greenlake race. So if you want to be an extra, come on out, there will probably be some free beer in it for you.

If you have questions, or would like to be part of the project, feel free to contact me at:

Finally, I did want to make a note that I don't have anything to do with the cool cats at GoMeansGo. The similar names are just a coincidence.
