I will start with the most important info: The company I work for is willing to pay for short documentaries. We are not looking for free content.
With that said, I work for a yet-to-be launched web start-up focusing on world news. We are trying to uncover unreported stories that are hiding in plain sight around the globe. But more importantly, we want to tell stories about people.
We are looking for human stories that act as an entryway into larger issues. We want to give world events and concerns context through the voice of individuals. These stories will be short, feature-like news stories at heart, but with a real level of added artistry. Think Vimeo, not YouTube.
We want to give our audience a fresh take on often tired topics. We want to present new angles into the news, and deliver compelling insights that elevate the conversation.
The short docs should be about 2-10 minutes, depending on the story.
If youÂ¹re at all interested, please reply to me as soon as you can. I will be more than happy to discuss content, compensation, and other specifics then.
