Film editor

We’re seek­ing a film edi­tor to cre­ate four short films for stu­dents aged 11 – 14 who are study­ing the British Empire and/​or the 1947 Par­ti­tion of India.

We are seeking a film editor to help create four short films of approximately 8-10 minutes each. These will use selected sound clips, commentary provided by a journalist with expertise in the history of Indian Partition, some short video clips and still images of and from Bristol Archives, music, and some short animation elements. These will be provided by us.

The films will provide an engaging visual for 11-14 years olds. We expect the work will take place and be complete by the end of January 2021. The final films must be in a compatible format for YouTube and Vimeo.

We are looking to recruit an editor with experience of working with this kind of material (sound clips, footage, animation, etc) to produce films for young people. We particularly welcome expressions of interest from people in the early stages of their career and of Indian, Pakistani or Bangladeshi heritage or background.

As we are aiming to support local creative professionals this commission is only open to people living within the West of England Combined Authority (Bristol, South Gloucestershire, Bath and North East Somerset).
