Professional filmmakers needed to help make a difference

Posted 3 January 2018

Media Trust is seeking London-based filmmakers or production companies to volunteer to create short charity films. For the past two years, Media Trust has produced Volunteer Films, a charitable filmmaking scheme run in partnership with John Lyon’s Charity.

We are now recruiting experienced filmmakers for a new season of Volunteer Films 2018. Ten of John Lyon’s Charity beneficiary charities, based in North West London will be selected to have a free film made for them to help promote their work with young people.

Media Trust is seeking self-shooting, self-editing professional filmmakers or production companies to create these films. Filmmakers volunteer their time and expertise to produce a two to three minute and will be given £1,500 (incl. VAT) to help cover costs. An approximate commitment of two days shooting and three days edit can be worked around the filmmaker’s existing schedules with completed films delivered by end July 2018.

Creating a high-quality film for a worthy charity who otherwise wouldn’t have been able to afford it was an incredibly rewarding experience
