Pow Wow Weekend – The Short Film

Posted By Paul G April 10th, 2013 Last Updated on: April 9th, 2013

Are you going to at Gathering of Nations?

Here is your chance to be in a movie!

From the Producers:

Shoot dates:

Music Video/interviews- April 24th and April 28th (before and after the powwow is active) locations: Alb office/studio 3 miles from the pit, and exterior locations tbd.

Powwow Footage/interviews at the powwow- April 26th, 27th.

We will be shooting the music video all day the 24th and 28th, but the days are as long as the participants are willing to put in and we will work around their schedules.

We will be shooting all day at the event and we ask that they allow us to shoot footage of them dancing and possibly of them during non-dance times as well as short interviews at the pit.

We are looking for:

Womens fancy 18-30 (music Video/documentary)

Mens fancy 18-30 (music video/documentary)

Chicken dancers 18+ (documentary)

Jingle Dress 18-30 (documentary)

At this point the pay is copy, credit, meal- this is a low budget, community funded project. They will receive a copy of the documentary and music video, credit on the end credits, we will feed them and, budget permitting, we will offer gas money and rate. We expect late financing, as the project nears production, so there may be pay, it's too early to tell.

We will be shooting the music video for Jesse Red Eagle Robbins, a young Choctaw hiphop mc. He reaches out to the youth and passes on information from the elders in a form the youth can understand. He focuses on conscious hiphop, on elevating folks. In his video we will share with people the beauty of powwow dancing, n8tive culture and hiphop.
