Film and Documentary MakingProgram Fees
If you are interested in film and documentary making and wish to make career in this field, VIN can help you to develop your skills and portfolio against the backdrop of dramatic and conflicting Nepal. For those taking a career break or a gap year, this is the perfect opportunity.
As people in the twenty-first century become increasingly busy they do not have time to hear to other people’s stories. However, a short considered message combined with artistic presentation can be effective, compelling or influential; whatever you want it to be. That is what makes the audio-visual medium such a powerful tool. In a short period of time you can produce an effective message, create a record of the past or present and inform the opinions of many people.
VIN is a non-commercial, charitable organisation whose overriding mission is the empowerment of marginalised, rural communities in Nepal, with a particular focus on women and children. Since 2007 we have worked with Jitpurphedi community, 12km from Kathmandu, and are now initiating work in Okhaldhunga, in the Everest Region. By taking part in our Journalism Program you will be supporting our efforts in these communities, helping to promote our relationships with partner organisations and raising our visibility.
As a volunteer or intern you will complete a documentary, story cycle, advertisement, jingle, short film or promotional video under film and documentary making project. Our volunteers can work in or outside of the communities we support. If you chose to work inside the community, you can chose from any of VIN’s projects. For those volunteers working within the community, VIN will support you by providing a translator, as required.
During your volunteer/internship placement you will live in a home stay with a Nepali family, either in Kathmandu or the community. This will ensure you are immersed in Nepali life, language and culture and will help to inform your work.Read moreApply now
