2012 CALL FOR PROPOSALS
A multi-generational video mentorship program
The Project provides a unique opportunity to learn video production from professional artists and editors, using state-of-the-art high-definition cameras and the latest editing technology – all in a group environment that is queer positive, collaborative and supportive. Inside Out and Charles Street Video guide participants through a series of workshops in all aspects of video production – from script development to camera operation to editing and final post-production.
Inside Out will select eight individuals, 4 under the age of 25 and 4 over the age of 55, who identify as LGBTTI2QQ to participate in the project, each making a short video (7 to 10 minutes long) to be screened at the Inside Out Toronto LGBT Film and Video Festival in May.
· Applicants must be between the ages of 17 and 24 years old or 55 years or older
· Applicants must have little to no experience making films or videos
· Selected participants must be able to commit to 16 hours/week over 4 months starting in January 2012. This commitment includes approximately five weekend-long intensive workshops.
Deadline for proposals: November 25, 2011
