Propose a Shoot

We’re looking forward to hearing about you and your ideas for a Global Lives Project shoot. As a volunteer producer, you will be contributing towards our library of life experience which is exhibited in various forms around the world. Please complete a preliminary filmmaker inquiry using the form below. If your shoot is time-sensitive, please indicate this in the "shoot dates" section below. We thank you for your interest!
  • Please include city and country
  • Please include country code
  • Please also explain how you plan to stabilize your camera and shots. This is vital to a successful Lives in Transit shoot.
  • Whom have you selected to feature in your shoot and why? Tell us about your participant's demographics (age, location, gender, marital status), occupation, religion, family, community and language(s). What is your relationship with this person and what is your relationship with his/her community? If you haven't yet picked an individual, describe the general characteristics of the participant you plan to seek out and his/her community.
  • Accepted file types: jpg, gif, png, pdf.
  • Who are the key members of your production team and what will their roles be? If possible, include a short bio of each person, their websites and contact information.
  • The full proposal requires a translation lead for every shoot. This can be a crew member or a partner organization (university, language school etc)
  • Lives in Transit shoot production must be completed by July 1, 2016, and post-production by August 2016. Extensions may be available depending on seasons etc.
  • Website, event, installation, publication, friend, etc.
