duckrabbit are always on the look out for fresh talent and over the next few months we have really exciting photofilms lined up in Ethiopia (two films), Oxford, Manchester, Canada (four films), Ireland, Moldova plus the possiblity of making films in Cambodia and the Solomon Islands.
Our work is often very exciting, giving us the opportunity to travel to some incredible places and meet with amazing people. This year we’re very proud that working with duckrabbit photographer Georgina Cranston won best film at the British Press Photo awards (for her work on homeless women) and Felix Clay best feature (for his work in Zambia). We’re lucky that we can call on such talent but we remain open to working with new freelancers.
So what are we looking for?
Benjamin (our Director of Production) is particularly interested in hearing from UK videographer/photographers (must do both) who
also have at least a basic grasp of the editing process.
If you are interested please write to our production manager Oli (email@example.com). Outline why you would like to work on a duckrabbit team. Please note we’re hard working storytellers not artists.
You must include links to examples of work that has been shot across two to three days max. Rarely do we have any more time than this on location. The work must be heavily video, or all video. If all video please include links to location photography work that has been shot over a few days max (sorry we’re not interested in your long-form projects brilliant though we’d expect them to be).
We also want to see evidence of editing skills. You don’t need to be an amazing editor but you do need a sense of how to tell a story.
You need to be a great team player and we need to see evidence of this. What might make you great as a tenacious lone wolf photographer means you’re probably not suited for a duckrabbit shoot.
Finally please let us know what your rate(s) are. On that note I should point out many of our films are for NGO’s with relatively small budgets.
We have our own film kit (Sony FS-700) so this is not something we are looking for you to bring.
If you’re not ready for this kind of work, but you think that one day you would like to shoot for a company like duckrabbit then please do consider coming on one of our workshops. And on that note we’re always particularly keen to hear from people we’ve trained.
Thanks for your interest and we hope to see some superb work.
