Your opportunity to contribute to a global movement helping to prevent drug-related deaths.
Each year, thousands of people die from accidental drug overdose. In Bristol, which has the highest number of crack-cocaine and heroin users in the south west, the number of drug-related deaths has recently been at a record high.
This International Overdose Awareness Day, held on August 31st, local charity Bristol Drugs Project are organising an outdoor ‘flashmob’ performance helping to raise awareness of drug overdoses and prevent future deaths.
We are searching for a talented Videographer with the necessary experience and A/V equipment to live stream the event via a cross-platform streaming and recording program, in coordination with a simultaneous Brighton-based event.
The event itself will feature a joint-performance by BDP’s creative arts groups for people in recovery from problematic drug and alcohol use (a choir, drama group and orchestra) and will be run in partnership with the Brighton-based Cascade Creative Recovery.
You will have access to:
- A broadcast camera (with recommended 720 / 1080p HD streaming capacity).
- A microphone for capturing vocals and acoustic music outdoors.
- A laptop with high streaming capabilities.
- High speed and reliable 4G internet connection.
You will be available to attend.
- Monday 15th July, 11.30am – 1pm. Planning meeting (optional attendance).
- Thursday 29th August, 2pm – 4pm. Rehearsal / planning meeting.
- Saturday 31st August, 1pm – 3pm (times TBC). Filming ‘flashmob’ International Overdose Awareness Day
