The Support. Don't Punish campaign is seeking expressions of interest from video producers to create a wrap-up film of the 2017 Global Day of Action.

 

THE PREMISE

The 2017 Global Day of Action of the campaign was its fifth and, so far, its most successful. Thousands of people joined actions in 206 cities in 94 countries. We want to honour and recognise those voices in a video that is mostly retrospective (featuring the 2017 day of action), but also forward-looking (inviting others to join in next year’s Day of Action).

 

VIDEO STRUCTURE

We’re at a very early stage in terms of conceptualising the project, but we would like it to showcase the marvellous photos and footage that we have received from all around the world. These materials document most of the different actions that activists organised for the campaign and could be pre-selected to facilitate the production of the video. The video could also rely on text / music to help with storytelling and pace.

 

LOOK & FEEL

We expect to work closely with the production team on this aspect, but expect the video to be:

-       Short and concise | Maximum 3.5 minutes long.

-       Fast paced and attention grabbing.

-       Inspiring and galvanising.

 

BUDGET

We’re expecting to invest between £600 and £1,200, depending on the complexity of the proposal.

 

SUBMITTING AN EXPRESSION OF INTEREST

Please send an e-mail to Juan Fernandez Ochoa (campaign@idpc.net) before Friday, 8 September 2017. Make sure to include links to previous work, a portfolio or show reel.
