Introduction: Looking for New Host of Indy Mogul's BFX

Indy Mogul is looking for a multi-talented individual or team to take over as host & producer of the show Backyard FX,  and it could be YOU!  Our new host will continue the show's DIY tradition of helping zero budget filmmakers make realistic special effects for cheap, and showing them how to become better filmmakers with tutorials and short films.

How To Apply:
We are looking for potential new host/producers to create an "audition episode"  that contains as many of the basic BFX elements as possible.

Deadline: February 28th

Compensation: This is a paid opportunity. Compensation will be determined during the selection process.

 The requirements are simple

1. Be over 18 (exceptions may be made)
2. Be able to make a new original episode and submit it every single week.
3. A crew is okay
4. Have a decent camera (Next New Networks can compensate if needed)
5. Have a good personality
6. Living close to the NYC area is a plus, but episodes are submitted remotely.
