About the Pilot Production

Phase 2 Pictures is starting production on a new Digital Docu-Series entitled “Community and Magic” and we are looking for some crew (unpaid) to help film the pilot episodes.

The show is aimed to document the stories from the Magic: the Gathering community as many are starting to return to in person local gaming events and soon to be larger sponsored events by Wizards of the Coast. Along the way, we will chronicle the stories of casual players, outcasts and the high profile members of the community.

After successful completion we will be re-launching our Indigogo campaign to help fund the additional work to complete the first season and seek sponsorship to actively produce the ongoing series. This campaign will provide the support system to fund paid positions for the remaining episodes for Season 1 in addition to having a premier release on Amazon Prime.

We need help in the following areas:

  • Assistant Camera (Applications Closed)
  • Production Assistant (Applications Closed)
  • Grip (Applications Closed)
  • Media Assistant (Applications Closed)

What we can offer:

  • Professional Environment and Experience
  • Snacks, Drinks and Lunch / Dinner
  • Main Title Credit
  • IMDB Credit
  • Reel footage (by request for your work)
  • Completed 4K digital copy of final release product
  • Direct opportunity for paid work on future Phase 2 Pictures productions including the the ongoing filming of the “Community and Magic” series
  • We will reimburse for gas money within reason; please inquire in the form below

You will not be required to bring your own equipment, however, for Assistant Camera, Camera Operator and Media Assistant, if you prefer to bring your own equipment that will be up to you. Please note during your inquiry if you wish to bring your own equipment.
