Title: Fuller Center Bike Adventure
Producer: Saoli Nguyen
NYU Affiliation: Non-NYU
The Fuller Center is looking for a documentary director/cameraperson to shoot and coordinate the production of a 10-15 minute film with the Fuller Center Bike Adventure this summer. You will also have the option to edit, though this is not a requirement. No paid compensation, but costs will be covered while on the job (food, lodging, transportation).
Must have your own camera and sound equipment (the more portable, the better; think DSLR and a Zoom recorder), and be familiar with running both simultaneously.
Please send a resume, brief cover letter explaining interest in the project, and a short reel or a link to a previous film.
About the Summer Bike Adventure:
Cyclists who take part in the Summer Ride will bike across the nation for nine weeks, beginning in Seattle, WA and ending in Washington DC. Along the way, the participants assist in the construction and repair of homes for low-income families. The film should encapsulate the need for affordable housing, and the specific personal stories encountered on the way across the country. The main characters will be the individuals and families that are given a hand-up through the Fuller Center's ministry of partnership housing. In addition to directing the short documentary throughout the summer, the director will be in charge of overseeing the output of shorter, more frequent media that serve to promote the Bike Adventure's mission to a larger audience.
While food, housing and transportation will be covered when on the job, you will have to make your own way to Seattle/from DC . This project is best suited for a student or recent graduate who is passionate about socially-conscious documentaries, wishes to gain experience, and wants the cross-country adventure of a lifetime!
