As part of Ad Infinitum’s lockdown activities, they’ve been gathering personal stories from people across the country of their experiences of the elderly care system in the UK. With permission they have recorded these conversations and are looking for an experienced podcast maker to edit the material into a coherent podcast/s; and also a visual artist to create a response to this material.
Both the podcast series and visual response will be shared as part of WHERE YOU ARE – Ad Infinitum’s online mini-festival taking place from 29 October to 1 November 2020 and might be used to inform the ongoing development of this project. They would like the work to be completed by Monday 12th October.
They are looking for an ARTIST WITH PODCAST MAKING EXPERIENCE
There will also need to be some additional recording of actors reading the text of some conversations to protect anonymity (we will provide the actors for this).
Experience in creating podcasts including editing, finding narrative and uploading the creation onto the different online platforms is required. They are looking for someone who has the equipment they will need to create and upload the podcasts.
Because the final format of the podcast is going to be shaped by you and they don’t yet know whether it would be a few episodes, or one long one etc, they aren’t able to give a specific fee for the job. However, they will pay a daily rate of £175 and estimate that the work would be completed within 7 days, allowing for time to listen to the material, create and edit the podcast/s. They can have some flexibility depending on what you decide to make.
The fee is inclusive of all expenses unless otherwise agreed. Both roles will be contracted and paid as freelancers and therefore responsible for all associated taxes due to HMRC.
WHO THEY’RE LOOKING FOR
People of all ages, backgrounds and disciplines are welcome to apply and we’d love to work with Bristol-based creatives. We are particularly interested in applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic, and disabled candidates. We are committed to creating a more diverse workforce and will work with our chosen collaborators to provide any access support or working arrangements that are required for them to deliver their best work.
Deadline for applications is Friday 11th September at 5pm.
