 Koba Konesavarathan is seeking subjects for Cultural Diversity Interviews
The message below is from Koba. Please contact Koba directly if interested.
 
"With the in-kind support of the Ed Video Media Arts Centre, we are able to showcase the diverse cultures in Guelph by producing a video documentary. Our goal is to provide every interested cultural group in Guelph with the opportunity to portray and promote their culture in the best possible way they could think of.

We are inviting the interested people from every cultural group in Guelph to participate in an interview between March 10 and March 13. The preparation work or rehearsals may have to be done before the actual interview will be recorded. We will be taking a complete interview from you. After that, we will be identifying common themes in the interviews of our diverse cultural groups to put them together in a documentary.

Our target audience include people from the mainstream culture. Therefore, we will be looking for ways to draw parallels with the mainstream culture in order to make it interesting to them. We are planning to submit this documentary to local film festivals, therefore we will be aiming to produce a documentary, which is of good quality and attractive to everyone regardless of their cultural barriers.

More than everything else, we want to receive your suggestions and feedback to help you promote your cultures in the best possible way.   

Looking forward to working with the interested people!

Looking for help?

Ed Video can be a great place to make connections with cast, crew, artists, video producers and technical help.
As an artist-run centre, we encourage the fair treatment of skilled artists, and that includes making sure that the services they may provide are respected and (whenever possible) financially compensated at a reasonable rate.

Before submitting your call for help, please consider the time, cost and energy video and media makers have invested in the development of their skills. The amount any individual video or media artist may charge for their work will vary, and some may even be willing to provide their services at no cost for projects or groups they believe in.
If you are seeking a volunteer videographer/media artist, please be prepared to compensate them (at minimum) for their equipment costs, travel expenses, media costs (DVD copies), etc. Never expect a volunteer to pay out of their own pocket to help you!
Artists should always be paid for assisting commercially-oriented projects.

To send us your call for help, please answer the following questions as briefly as possible. Calls should be less than two paragraphs and include full contact information. Submit two weeks (or more) before the date your project takes place.
