Jordan: Videographer – project in Jordan

Organization: Generations For Peace
Country: Jordan
Closing date: 16 Oct 2016

Generations For Peace (GFP) is seeking proposals from experienced filmmakers based in Jordan to produce 3 x 1.5 minute mini films highlighting GFP’s Jordan-based Social Cohesion Programme. Arabic language skills preferred. English language skills are mandatory.

Background:

GFP is a leading global non-profit peace-building organisation founded by HRH Prince Feisal Al Hussein of Jordan in 2007. Dedicated to sustainable conflict transformation at the grassroots, GFP empowers volunteer leaders of youth to promote active tolerance and responsible citizenship in communities experiencing different forms of conflict and violence. Carefully-facilitated sport-based games, art, advocacy, dialogue and empowerment activities provide an entry point to engage children, youth and adults, and a vehicle for integrated education and sustained behavioural change.

In Jordan, GFP is implementing a social cohesion programme to support Jordanian and Syrian refugee children and youth in vulnerable host communities. The aim is to bring children and youth together to participate in innovative sport-based games and arts-based activities, helping to break stereotypes and strengthen social cohesion, reducing tension and risk of violence, and supporting child and youth development in communities most in need.

The mini films will feature programme participants, parents, volunteers and staff members. Examples of previous videos produced can be found on our main YouTube channel.

Location:

Filming will take place in a number of youth community centres in Jordan – TBC. The candidate must be based in Jordan (no international travel will be provided).

Style:

The mini films should take the viewer on a journey, encouraging them to want to learn more and support the cause. Ultimately GFP wants people to care. It is imperative that the films portray the participants and volunteers’ lives as accurately and as fairly as possible. Interviews will be conducted in English and Arabic – GFP staff can facilitate translation for editing/subtitles. Relevant donor logos and text slides (very minimal graphics) will need to be included.

Timeline:

GFP suggests the following as a time frame:

Contract signed: October 2016

Storyboard completed and agreed: late October / Early November 2016

Filming dates: 5/6 days (11-12 November / 18-19 November / two week days in between)

Editing: with three drafts submitted for review/feedback: two structural and one revision, and final video completed – December 2016

How to apply:

Videographers should forward their applications to ssquires@gfp.ngo by 16 October 2016. Please include the following:
