CALLING INDEPENDENT FILMMAKERS AND VIDEO JOURNALISTS

The American News Project (http://newsproject.org) is dedicated to defending and promoting the public interest through high-quality, investigative video journalism. Our staff includes video professionals who have worked at CNN, National Geographic, PBS Frontline, Bill Moyers Journal and other respectable media outlets. Our reports (some call them mini-documentaries) regularly end up on prominent media outlets like the Huffington Post.

We are building out our network of freelance filmmakers and video journalists. ANP is run very much like a traditional magazine. Video reports are produced staff reporters and qualified freelancers. Our stories are distributed to hundreds of blogs and major media sites.
We are assembling a community of video journalists and documentary filmmakers who believe in quality, accuracy and in the transformative potential of good multimedia storytelling. Some of the most incisive reporting is produced by those who know the personalities and communities directly affected by issues and events.

If you are a documentary filmmaker or professional video journalist who would like to work with us on stories please click on the link below and fill out your info.

We believe that these are seminal times, both in the evolution of media and the project of America. By grinding away at pernicious problems; by holding the powerful accountable; by seeking out universal stories of struggle and transcendence; by highlighting voices overlooked by mainstream outlets; by making a commitment to quality; by partnering with our peers in the independent press; and by assembling an online community of media junkies who hunger to participate, we hope to help pioneer a form of online public-interest broadcasting that is both entertaining and transformative.

So, welcome. We hope you enjoy, and we hope you participate.

I don't think we have German sound recordists on The D-Word, so that's a bit pointless. But www.crew-united.com lists 259 of them. If your colleagues find someone locally, they could save the money for airfare and accommodation and instead actually pay the guy... However, for that, they would need to get the location right. "Neuhosen" doesn't exist in Germany.

Can we please ban posts saying "I sent you an email" for good?

Thanks for the link, Ben. And people know people – and some independents can also do good sound recording in that context. The airfare is Euro-local, not from NAmerica, of course. And I didn't write it, so if Neuhosen is a phonetic spelling for wherever he (a French mother-tongue cameraman) is – someplace near the south at amusic fest....

Why are you picking on posts I make, Ben? I think more laterally than some people, and try not to be frivolous, but we have been around the block on this. If you think I am not contributing here, then cool, I leave.

And by the way, it's a paid gig, not posh but paid nonetheless. On top of meals, accomodation and transport.

According to the original post the gig does clearly seem to be "expenses only", so Ben's point is reasonable. Maybe you should forward his suggestion?
