Where to find/hire DPs, audio guys, freelance editors?

Looking around to hopefully build up a team, but that is far in the future. Where is a good place to find quality freelancers that are available book project to project?

You'll have to pay for an account but Media Match has been real solid. www.media-match.com

In Vancouver, BC, Canada there are several Facebook groups. When they're bad they're cliquey, but when they're good you get not only names but recommendations. Perhaps check if there are similar groups for your city?

We're all out there, available and eagerly looking for work. Websites, mandy, CreativeCow, LA411, and of course word of mouth. You can look up any crew member you want from a show's credits or IMDB page and find your way to discuss hiring them.
The caveat is that we've put in the years and investment to become professionals and besides the passion, we're in it also to make a (half decent) living. In my experience on both sides of the hiring process I've never had problems finding good people - it's about agreeing on a reasonable rate. $150/day for a quality freelancer is not a reasonable rate.
