Are you inspired by science and technology?
If you live in Newcastle, are over the age of 16 and would be interested in making short films about areas of scientific interest, a new volunteering opportunity has just become available. STEM Reporter Volunteers will be learning how to shoot and edit films and then making video reports on advancements taking place locally in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The reports will then be uploaded to the Newcastle Science City website. http://www.newcastlesciencecity.com The website already contains a great deal of information and the Community Engagement pages include an Events Diary where you can see what is going on each month. For example, the third week of March 2011 is designated as Science Week so there will be a range of events that STEM Reporters can choose to report on. Keep an eye on the website for updates. If you aren’t sure what is going on and need help to choose, the training planned for mid February will help you decide which topic or event you want to get involved in and which roles you will be most comfortable with eg writing scripts, operating equipment, front of camera reporting, editing and uploading etc.
Full training in all aspects of the roles will be provided by Swingbridge Media and all out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed by CSV.
You don’t have to have any prior experience of film-making but if you do, you will be more than welcome to join the team and share your skills with others. The hours are flexible and training times will be arranged to suit the majority.
