Free production service
We have a number of volunteers and members who want to improve their showreels and increase their expereince by working with clients. To faciltate this we take reqests from organisations wanting a professional video or animation and match them to potential filmmakers and animators.
This offer is aimed at charities and not for profit organisations although commercial organisation are welcome to apply if they are prepared to donate a small amount to a charity of their choice. We ask that the clients pay for any travel and expenses including lunch.
In some cases (particularly animation), it may be more appropriate to offer the work to more experienced volunteers or freelancers. The client would then pay a fee to the artist as they will be in the next stage of their career and will have more skill and expertise. This fee would be below the commercial rate and would be negotiated with the client and agreed beforehand.
How to apply
Send a detailed but concise email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include dates, where the video is going to be shown and provide links to examples of your work.
