Moonshine Distiller wants you!

Posted On: 09 / 24 / 14

Hello fellow Coloradicals,

Our merry band out moonshiners needs your help! We would like to film a series of educational videos with the purpose of teaching people more about distilling, but we are over our heads! We have started filming some of the videos with a stationary camera mounted on a tripod, but they did not come out as well as we had hoped…. We need you to add a more professional touch.

The series will be about 25 videos that should be about 1-5 minutes long. We will film mostly in the Winter Park area, probably over 2 or 3 single day shoots. Aside from the production/editing, a short intro clip will need to be generated. This can be anything from an animated logo to a complication of shots. As long as it looks nice, we will leave this up to you!

As far as equipment goes, we have a Canon 7D (with a couple lenses) and tripod available for use, but don’t have much more than that at the moment. You are welcome to edit with whatever software you choose.

Timing is very flexible and we can work out times that will fit your schedule.

Lastly and most importantly, what’s in it for you?
-Money! $500 for the project.
-Education! All you could ever want to know about distilling and spirits.
-Fun! We are a fun company, and this will certainly be a lot of fun to film.
-Food, lodging and skiing! Yes, we are located in Winter Park, so there will be plenty of opportunity to ski. And as an added bonus, you are also welcome to stay in one of our ski chalet guest rooms (during the shoot or later in the ski season). There is also a good possibility of skiing for free or at least with heavy discounted rates.
-Portfolio building! We are happy to provide glowing references of our time working with you.

How to apply:

Please send your resume and a link to your portfolio to jeff@moonshinedistiller.com. You are also welcome to apply as a team if you wish. Although it is not required, creativity in your application certainly will not hurt your chances! A few examples: a quick paragraph or two as to why you’d like to work with us, a video related video that you think is really well done and why, ways that we can make an educational series more fun and interesting, etc. If you have any questions, please feel free to call Jeff at (970) 281-5790.

Because I Am a Girl
In many regions and cultures around the world, girls face double discrimination because of their age and gender. They face unique challenges that are barriers to education, limit their opportunities to earn a livable wage, cause them to live in poverty, and be forced into early marriage. The goal of this campaign is to educate the world on the millions of girls that are being denied basic human rights, and empower people to take bold and courageous actions that will change the lives of these girls and our world.
Your mission is to create professional, docu-style videos that are :30 - :59 seconds in length, highlighting inspirational stories about people who believe in the power of audacious action to make a difference in the life of a girl. Show us what people are doing in the USA and around the world to bring attention to the oppression of girls in their local communities and in developing countries around the world. This is what we do and this is why it should be important to you.
In addition to being used to promote the “International Day of the Girl” on October 9th, there is a pool of $25,000 that will be awarded to the top 8 entries. The deadline to enter this campaign is September 22nd, 2014 at 3:59 pm PDT.
