Call for Volunteers- Posted September 1st
Assistants and on-camera Talent for Ed Video Workshops and Training Videos
We're looking for enthusiatic volunteers who can help us with workshops. 
Some of our workshops require technical support, such as camera operators who can record the event or send
an image feed to a presentation screen. Technical support may also mean assisting the instructor in a
variety of ways throughout their lesson (fetching or setting up equipment, standing in for talent, etc).

We're also seeking talent for workshops. This might be as simple as standing in as a model would, or in
some cases performing lines and blocking.

We hope to provide any volunteers with meaningful experiences that will help them advance their own careers
and development, as well as enhance their relationship with Ed Video.
Volunteer will be credited, which can be used toward rentals, workshop fees, and membership dues.

Call for an Editor- Reposted August 18th
I'm looking for an Editor for my crazy dark comedy called, "Cost of
Living". It was shot in HD video on the Canon C100 and I expect the final
running time to be between 7 and 9 minutes. It's a low pay position and
will be a fun experience!

Interested? Contact Tim Phillips:
Looking for help?

Ed Video can be a great place to make connections with cast, crew, artists, video producers and technical help.
As an artist-run centre, we encourage the fair treatment of skilled artists, and that includes making sure that the services they may provide are respected and (whenever possible) financially compensated at a reasonable rate.

Before submitting your call for help, please consider the time, cost and energy video and media makers have invested in the development of their skills. The amount any individual video or media artist may charge for their work will vary, and some may even be willing to provide their services at no cost for projects or groups they believe in.
If you are seeking a volunteer videographer/media artist, please be prepared to compensate them (at minimum) for their equipment costs, travel expenses, media costs (DVD copies), etc. Never expect a volunteer to pay out of their own pocket to help you!
Artists should always be paid for assisting commercially-oriented projects.

To send us your call for help, please answer the following questions as briefly as possible. Calls should be less than two paragraphs and include full contact information. Submit two weeks (or more) before the date your project takes place.
