Calling all film-makers!

Ahem, ahem… We’re working on a rather exciting new project right now, called London Lives, and are looking for filmmakers (established and up-and-coming) to join us!

In a nutshell, we’re creating and producing a collection of short documentaries that take you under the skin of London, through the people who live here. Stories of London told by Londoners (if you get our drift). Our mission (and yours, should you choose to accept it) is to take people under the skin of this diverse city of ours, through a series of beautiful films featuring larger than life characters – who reveal their personal connection with a unique London space, while letting us into their lives in the process.

The good news is there are no style restrictions. We’d like you to put your own creative stamp on the films you want to make – and tell your chosen story your way.

What you get out of it
If we choose your film idea for the LondonLives project, we’ll give you full production and creative support to make your film. Put simply, you’ll get the keys to our kit cupboard, editing facilities, production management, assistance on set and editorial guidance.

Not only that but the documentaries will live on a dedicated website featuring an interactive map of London, giving you a platform to showcase your work. And of course, we’ll be telling the whole world about it…

If you’re interested in getting involved, please contact carolina@mediaark.co.uk with:

  • A brief paragraph on your idea – including a person and a London place they will talk about (this could be their home, workplace, street, neighbourhood, hidden spot, etc);
  • Reason why you want to shoot this story;
  • A link to your reel or previous work.

Look forward to hearing from you!
