Crew needed for short-documentary about the life of a famous football coach.

I am an experienced commercial filmmaker and the owner of a video production company in Newcastle Upon Tyne, originally coming from Redcar, Cleveland.
As a passion project I am shooting a short documentary about the life of an immensely popular football coach in Teesside. If you are a fan of football in the region, you will be aware of this man.

Primarily, sound isn't my specialty so I am in need of somebody that could take care of this during an emotional interview in which the coach will take us through life, tragedy & triumph. It will only take half a day.

We would love a lighting specialist to be on board as we believe the interview will be the most important aspect of the documentary. Someone that specialises in this area would be massively appreciated.

A second camera-op isn't absolutely essential but as this is the type of opportunity that i know i would have loved years ago, if this sounds like an appealing project we would be willing to allow somebody passionate about the idea to join the project.

As this is a passion project, it is actually costing us to create so at this time we can't offer payment.

This project will be broadcast on local news, with a heavily backed PR campaign that should see it be very successful on social media in the North East and the footballing world. The short-doc will also be put forward for filmmaking and documentary awards.

Job payment

Unpaid – this is a collaboration opportunity

Expenses paid - I will personally cover travel expenses

Collaborations should create mutual benefit and are usually amateur, student or 'Time for Print' projects.

All advertisers agree to abide by the UK National Minimum Wage Act and are responsible for defining the nature of their production and any payment requirements. Find out more.

Sound specialist

Someone that has experience or a good understanding of capturing great sound for interviews. Own kit is preferred but if not we can look to hire the kit you will need. We would like to use a boom mic so that a lapel isn't visible. This is due to the sensitive nature of the interview.

Anyone, aged 18 and over

Applications closed 2 September 2020.


This isn't an essential role for us but we would be willing to allow somebody passionate about the project to get involved as a secondary camera-op. Your main role will be monitoring the B cam during an emotional interview. You could also be asked to get some B-role for the short doc.

Anyone, aged 18 and over

Applications closed 2 September 2020.

Cinematic Interview Lighting specialist

Lighting specialist needed for an emotional interview in which the subject will discuss personal tragedy and triumph. Own gear isn't essential but could be beneficial. This will formulate the most important part of the mini-doc so a good understanding of how to use lighting to perpetuate drama and emotion is critical.

Anyone, aged 18 and over
