Calling all filmmakers! Do you want to make a positive change abroad this summer? Or are you a traveler interested in learning visual storytelling techniques using media? This summer you could create a short documentary film with us in Peru, Nicaragua, Nepal or Morocco!
We partner with individuals and organizations who are already positively impacting their communities, and make a short documentary about their efforts. Our month-long program involves researching, writing, filming, and editing a video.
The finished product will help the organization gain worldwide attention, volunteers and possibly grants. Once films are finished, there will be a premiere screening in the community. Each outreach crew will produce its own separate film about a changemaker.
A crew consists of a Director, Producer, Cinematographer, and Editor. You may mention which position(s) that you are interested in on your application. We provide professional camera gear and sound equipment to each crew. Your crew will need to creatively develop art, grip, and lighting tools from items around the city or at Base Camp.
Crew members will collaborate on administrative, technical, and creative duties. There will also be a Project Coordinator to oversee the post-production workflow including graphics, titles, music, and sound. Adobe Premiere editing software will be available for each crew during editing week.
