We love interesting stories and characters. We are working towards releasing a high volume of short, news type informative videos via our social media channels that deliver interesting, inspiring, exciting and informative films that empower, move and invigorate audiences.
Please see these two examples of our work for exactly what we mean:
As you can see, the videos are short, punchy, contain interesting information and characters.
If you'd like to work with us, we invite you to produce a video in this style as part of your application. We’d like you to choose a good music track and an interesting way to use subtitles on these videos so that everything that's said is easily readable by the viewer, even if the video is muted. The video should be no longer then 2 minutes with the optimal time being under 1 minute.
For now, we are OK for you to use a commercial track and footage shot by someone else. We are really keen to see your style and prowess as an editor that is capable of making exciting, visceral and shareable content, so anything goes!
Please note to credit the original video in the top left of the frame where the footage appears, if it is not your own. Please attach the Tusko ident to the beginning and end of your video in the same position as the two videos above. The ident can be downloaded here.
We would also like you to include the Tusko logo at the top right of your video in exactly the same way as our example films. You can download that here and here (grey and white).
The main purpose of this part of the application is to see how well you work on your own accord without much direction from us. This is what we would expect of the successful applicant.
Please use the two videos above for examples and refer to them if you need any direction, but we would like to see your own ideas in the delivery of the video. Our decision in choosing the successful applicants will be decided heavily on the topic you choose for the video. The quality of the video you submit will also play a major factor in our decision.
Our decision in choosing the successful applicants will be decided heavily on the topic you choose for the video. The style and quality of the video you submit will also play a major factor in our decision.
Successful applicants will be offered paid freelance work for Tusko Films. We look forward to your film.
