KSJS Production Constitution

Written by Co-founder Kerrick Stoller

Mission Statement

KSJS Production is a small group of close friends that is experimenting in the media arts to express their thoughts, opinions, and emotions. It is our goal as a group to learn and earn ourselves a place among the most well known youtube members. We will do this by making short films, music, and eventually, a full, feature length film.

Our first actual short film, Titled Reflection.

Reflection

Leadership

  • The person who is most responsible for the idea or creation of a project is in charge. They become the director of that film and have the most say. Any actors in the film may offer their opinion on the matter, but the final say is with the director.

  • Under the director is the producer, the person who is helping the mastermind of the project create their vision. They figure out where, when, and how they can shoot the film or make the song and everybody else who is involved must comply to their instruction.

  • The camera person is third in control. They are the eyes of the project and make the rules while shooting. They control the position of any external audio if there is any, they set the rules for how much can fit into a scene, and they have the ability to request as many retakes as they wish so that they can film a scene that will please, and fit the image created by the director, and provided by the producer.

  • Actors are on the bottom of the food chain. They can try different forms of acting and suggest ideas but it is not up to them. They should be acting because they enjoy it, not for any other reason. If a person volunteers for a part they must, to the best of their abilities, complete their assigned role.
  • The people in charge of how to manage resources and money of KSJS Prod are Cody Thomas, Joey Sanchez, Michael Davies, and Kerrick Stoller. They are officially known as the original members.
