I have about 40 hours of documentary footage, shot in India, that tracks kids as they prepare to enter the workforce. I want to start with 2 segments::
- MBA students looking for jobs
- a person in the slums of Mumbai getting ready for work
I am looking for someone to review the footage (probably about 5 hours worth) and then make recommendations as to what the best way to tell the story is. The film is on mini-DV, shot with a Panasonic DVX 100a.
My ultimate destination for this is the web. I want to put a short film around each topic (less than 10 minutes) onto the web. I also want to post the raw footage and encourage others to work with the footage to come up with their own 'crowdsourced' version of the film.
So the end result is a website that has raw footage, our edited film, and user submitted edits.
The successful candidate:
- must have own computer, and a copy of Final Cut Pro (FCP).
- skilled with FCP
- a strong understanding of Web 2.0
- a strong passion for film and an interest in documentary
- an ability to meet deadlines
- an interest in collaboration
If you are interested, please contact me. It is ideal if you live in north Jersey or near NYC so we can meet. If not though, we can rely on email and phones and a bit of FedEx.
I have done quite a bit of web design/dev work previously, and have a focus on video for the web. Below is a link to my site, and a website that hosts quite a bit of high quality video. Please take a look and let me know if you have any questions.
I would be very interested to look at your footage. I have over 13 years teaching storytelling in film at SVA & Pratt (NYC). The topic also interests me - check out my site http://www.sendablessing.com.
I have edited documentary pieces for the past several years and have a lot of expertise working with large amounts of footage. I am in Boulder, Colorado, so if there is a way to do this long distance, please get in touch.
