Call for Videographer: Interviews with Iowa Architects, by the Iowa Architectural Foundation
About the Foundation:
The Iowa Architectural Foundation (IAF) is non-profit organization made up of a group of passionate volunteers working to inspire an appreciation for architecture and design in everyone through education and outreach. Our tenure is strong. We’ve been doing this since 1989.
The IAF brings architects and designers, educators and students, and architecture enthusiasts together to improve the quality of life in the state of Iowa through architecture and design. We do this through our many outreach programs for both youth and adults, with a goal to help people become thoughtful and engaged stewards of their communities and to help improve the places where they live, learn work and play.
What: We’re looking for someone with a journalism and/or videography background to film short interviews with Iowa architects at the annual American Institute of Architects (AIA), Iowa Chapter, convention this fall. Questions for the architects have already been formulated – we just need someone to film the architects (preferably with a video camera rather than a mobile device) and someone with some video editing skills who can put a short video together with some simple text, graphics and music dubbed over the film. You must have access to a camera, editing software and other videography equipment, as needed. Details about text and music, etc., can be discussed at a later time. We’d love to hear your ideas and collaborate with you on the overall vision of the video! At the convention, we will be setting up a small filming area with a rug and some modernistic furniture that the architects will sit on to be interviewed.
When: Thursday, Sept. 20 (7 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and Friday, Sept. 21, 2018 (7:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.). Actual hours are flexible and can be discussed in further detail – Click Here and scroll to the bottom of the page to view a tentative schedule for the convention. The videographer does not necessarily have to be present during the whole day. We anticipate approximately 8 hours of your time total between Sept. 20 and 21 to film the architects. We will like to have a 1-hour meeting with you prior to the event to discuss logistics and other setup requirements. Time is available on Wednesday, Sept. 19, for setup and viewing the filming space at the convention location.
Where: Iowa Events Center, 835 5th Ave., Des Moines, IA
Why: We’re doing this as a means of promoting, and learning from, the great architects we have in Iowa, as well as to promote the architecture and design that inspires them every day. We hope that by being our videographer, you can gain some valuable work experience, as well as learn a little more about the design environment around us.
Compensation: $12/hour. As previously noted, hours are flexible and we will discuss later. We anticipate approximately 8 hours of your time total between September 20th and 21st to film the architects. We will work with you to determine approximately how much time you think will be needed to edit the film.
