We need you!

Little Sandbox is recruiting volunteers to help launch a new media channel for Norris Green & Clubmoor.

The Neighbourhood News project, funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, through its Awards for All programme, will see the creation of an online news channel including videos, podcasts, photography and editorial journalism.

The channel will focus on what’s going on in the local community, raise awareness of the issues faced by local residents and celebrate the positive things happening in our community.

This is a great opportunity to learn new media skills, gain work experience and grow your portfolio.

No experience necessary as training will be included. Have a read what the roles entail and see which ones you think you’ll enjoy the most.

We’re looking for enthusiastic, self motivated people of all ages (minimum aged 13) for the following roles:

 

Camera Operators

We’ll be making films, interviewing local people, local councillors and local businesses, as well as filming events and public activities.

You’ll be in charge of shooting interviews and cutaways. Using video cameras, tripods, green screen and lights.

Or alternatively you might operate a digital camera, taking photos of events and activities to add to our social media channels and news articles.

Video/Audio Editors

We’ll be making films, interviewing local people, local councillors and local businesses, as well as filming events and public activities.

You’ll be in charge of combining footage from interviews with cutaways to tell a story, using transitions and effects as well as creating a library of footage that we can use in future.

Presenters

All good channels require a news anchor. Whether it’s a radio/podcast or a video, we’re looking for people who can present information and encourage others to talk in interviews.

You’ll help with writing scripts and deliver them either in front of a green screen, on location, or in conversation with guests.

If you’re confident in front of camera, or happy to open discussions with people then we want to hear from you.

Bloggers

Do you like to write? Do you like to investigate and research? Then this may be the role for you. You’ll put together news articles, assist with script writing and help with adding written, video and audio content to the website.
