A SOCIAL IMPACT FILM STUDIO

We are a globally distributed 'Social Impact Film Studio' made up of a bunch of kickass filmmakers and creative misfits that believe in the mighty power of storytelling. What exactly we mean by 'Social Impact Film Studio' ?

WORK FOR HIRE

We help global charitable organisations to not only, capture content from all around the globe, but also do it ethically. The reason being is that we have a very cost effective production method that only teams that do good deserve. We have also vowed to always hire local filmmakers and pay them no less than the Australian rate, even if we're shooting in a lower socioeconomic region.

WORK FOR LOVE

Every time we produce a film for a charitable organisation we use part of the budget to shoot an unrelated story of an unrelated local hero, to produce a short form personal documentary film that showcases their life for everyone to see and be inspired by. Some of these heroes are identified by a public vote (Story to Film competition) and some are directly chosen by our team or our charity partners.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Please note that we are a young, passionate and lean startup company therefore we are very flexible and will thrive towards whatever is the best way going forward, so please DO Ask and/or Suggest, as we are listening!

Q: Why should I register? You will use my portfolio to promote inspireflix.

A: First of all. Profiles are private! We DO NOT use your name, skill set, show reel or any of your work to promote INSPIREFLIX. We ONLY list your profile photo and name above to show new filmmakers that we already have filmmakers on the platform. If that is unacceptable then you can exclude yourself from that list by leaving your profile picture empty.

Q: How do you fund shoots? Will you release funds for expenses like hiring gear etc?

A: We'll pay 50% after the shoot and the remaining 50% after delivery of assets. We will pay up to $100 AUD / hour for the shoot (this depends on your experience and equipment) Shoots will be either 5h, 10h or 2x10h long and we will try to use camera operators that are nearest to the location to avoid travel costs. So you'll get $500 for a 5h shoot, $1000 -> 10h, and so on and in some cases IF you need to work extra, it will go higher. We will pay you travel, accommodation and hire expenses IF necessary, HOWEVER we'll try to avoid these if possible.

Q: How are the required hours decided for projects?

A: The hours are pre-determined for every shoot. The time starts when you arrive to the filming location, and finishes when you leave.

Q: How and when will I get paid?

A: For international gigs we prefer paying via PayPal as that platform protects both of us and as I've already pointed out, we'll pay 50% up front and 50% on delivery of assets. IMPORTANT!!! You will have to have a 100% completed profile (examples of your work, preferred payment info and government ID is very important), then you will need to schedule a phone / video chat with us (I will do this personally for as long as I can do it). Only after these steps you are ready to accept jobs.

Q: How soon will I get work?

A: It is hard to say how soon will you get hired for a shoot, but if you have no profile, then you'll definitely miss out. We ONLY reach out once via LinkedIn and then it is up to you.

Q: What equipment do I need?

A: The minimum required equipment would be something like:

  • 1 x camera, Canon 5D mkII or similar with cards and batteries. NOTE: we only shoot in HD for now to reduce the delivery footprint, so even if you use a RED or ARRI we'd ask you to either shoot in 1080p OR convert it before delivery.
  • 1 x 24-70mm or similar like 1 x 24mm and 1x 85mm preferably prime or good quality zoom lenses... HOWEVER we do know that some of the regions we'd like to film it is very expensive to own such lenses so we understand even is one has a cheap 18-105mm or similar.
  • For audio something like the TASCAM portable recorder (DR10L) with a lavalier mic (or similar) would be great... and you'd be best to have a set of two really...
  • 1 x monopod !!! to avoid hand held shots being shaky
  • 1 x tripod for interviews or static shots

Q: I don’t own any equipment. Can I still work?

A: This depends on your region. IF you’re from a developing country where it is difficult to own any equipment, then we will obviously do whatever we can to help you IF you have the skills.

Q: Do I only shoot and deliver the RAW files?

A: Predominantly yes, you would be filming. Everything that is captured during the shoot, is uploaded onto our servers within the platform OR if you have no good internet then we'll post you a portable HDD which you'll post to an upload location near you.

Q: Can I also do the post production?

A: Yes if you want, you can also become an editor.

Q: How much information will I get about a project?

A: When you are assigned to film a project, we’ll give you a very detailed list of background information about the person, the story, the key points, everything.

Q: How many days notice will I get before projects?

A: We'll try to give enough notice to filmmakers but sometime we might need you urgently. Nothing sooner than 7 days and most likely weeks in advance...

IMPORTANT!!! In order to ensure that we constantly deliver a high quality work, we are producing a video workshop, that will discuss various important techniques, tips and tricks ( like how to produce quality, when equipment and/or time is limited ) It will cover most important aspects of a usual shoot. You will be required to watch these videos and in some cases (especially if you have no clearly identified showreel) you will be required to perform certain quick qualifying tasks, that will help us determine your skill level in certain areas. On top of this, it is also likely that either I ( Gabor - the founder ) or an established INSPIREFLIX filmmaker will accompany you on your first shoot.
