Seeking as many people to help as possible.

I need a cameraman to help me achieve the shots that I am looking for. There is the possibility that it will all be filmed on my phone, but I am trying for that not to happen.

I need a propmaster, someone who can keep track of all the props and such, to help find the props to be used for the film.

I am looking for a grip, someone that can help me set up the set before filming, and reset the set if need be in between shots.

More jobs will most likely be needed.
