Volunteer opportunity posted by: The Crossing Borders Project
Posted on: January 21, 2013
The Crossing Borders Project distributes disposable camera's where ever to provide tools so others can generate their own voice and stories. We believe that this helps the "others" understand the "other" in terms of reality, rather than what the mainstream news tells us. Our participants decide on what voice that they want to share, and we assist by providing workshops and facilitating. We have a few projects that are "behind" and one that is currently in production in Portland, Oregon!
The CB Project is getting behind and could sure use your help! We have images that need to be put into videos, with music and maybe some sub-titles. This can be done from anywhere, as long as you have Internet service.
Project A) Elderly Residential Center Voices: For this project there are some images, and recorded videos...mainly because some of our participants could not see well to take pictures but would rather tell their stories through interviews. This one is different than most! We need a dedicated and experienced someone who works with imovie (because that is what we use) that can put the images in some nice video form, with some music, narriation in English and if needed subtitles! There are five short films that need to be done.
Project B) Haiti: It is the same as for the elderly and a bit more complicated. The images need to be put together and CB needs to find someone that speaks French so we can add that as the narriation, send the translations so the editor can include sub titles!
If you have dropbox, this can be done from anywhere. You can work at your own schedule, but we do want to get these out! So depending on your skills, it may take about 10 hours.
Thanks a bunch!
Please send me an email and tell us why you would like to participate and your video editing experience!
We will put your name on the end for helping and you can use us as a reference for future needs!
Sorry, we cannot pay all of our work is volunteer, and all the $$ goes towards the camera's and developing.
