Can you speak passionately about environmental issues? We’re looking for new talent from across Scotland who can take environmental news stories, both global and local and turn them into engaging videos for BBC The Social.
Whether you’re a budding film maker, engaged in tackling climate change or looking for new ways to communicate about sustainability, why not turn your hand to this exciting creative challenge?
In this opportunity and Green Tease event, run by Creative Carbon Scotland and hosted by BBC The Social, we’re inviting you to produce short (90 second) videos about environmental stories and share your video with arts and sustainability practitioners during the event, with the chance of your footage being showcased on the BBC The Social platform.
Take a link from the list of stories below and make a 90 second video that sums up the story making it relatable to the BBC The Social’s young (18+) audience. Further information, tips and resources for making your video are available here.
We’ll then screen and discuss some of the videos during the Green Tease event with some videos being selected to be showcased on the BBC The Social platform.
The latest DSLR is NOT essential for making videos for The Social. Many contributors use their phone to record or a small point and click camera. As long as it can shoot HD and the audio it captures is clear and audible. There are simple ways for you to light your shots without expensive kit and there are plenty of free software alternatives.
