Author Solutions (www.authorsolutions.com), the leading self-publishing company in the world, is looking for creative freelance filmmakers from around the country to conduct, shoot and edit high quality video interviews with our authors. Filmmakers must have access to a High Definition Camera and quality sound recording equipment.
If selected to be a part of our Author Interview filmmaker network, when assigned a project, you will hold a preliminary phone conversation with the author to discuss what it is they would like to capture in the interview. You will then schedule a time to meet at the author’s preferred location to conduct and shoot the interview. In order to make the final product as interesting as possible, you will also need to shoot creative B-roll and lay in stock music underscoring. Filmmaker will then submit a rough cut of the interview for approval and notes, adjust accordingly and then turn in your final cut. A series of interview questions will be provided, but filmmaker must be comfortable working with a variety of personalities and getting the most out of an interview.
Projects will be assigned to geographically appropriate filmmakers.
Filmmakers will be paid $500 per project, payable upon completion of approved final cut.
Filmmakers wishing to be considered for our network may apply by going to www.authorsolutionsfilm.com and clicking on “Interviewers”. Please follow the instructions on the application.
As part of the application process, you will be asked to provide a link to a SAMPLE INTERVIEW. We are asking all interested filmmakers to put together a 60 second interview to give us an idea as to how you might shoot something like this. Your interview subject can be anything/anybody you want. Just be creative and show us the level of work we should expect from you.
Take a look at the following two examples interviews:
Please make sure to follow ALL of the instruction on the application form, and we’ll look forward to reviewing your work. All submissions will be viewed, and the filmmakers we are interested in possibly working with will be contacted.
