These guidelines are meant to help you prepare for shooting and editing. Don’t hesitate to regularly refer back to them and to keep them in mind throughout the creative process.
1. Shoot In Your Community
We invite emerging filmmakers all around the world to give a voice to someone living under the poverty line.
2. Send Us Your Video
Send us your video before the end of 2014 and we will integrate it onto our interactive map.
3. Share and Discuss Issues
React to social issues raised by the webdocumentary and share ideas with our online community.
Film students, production groups, documentary filmmakers and media journalists are encouraged to participate. More importantly, if you are passionate about the project, we want to hear about your idea.
We want you to tell the story of individuals who rarely get a voice in mainstream media. Don’t worry if they don’t make “one dollar” a day. This reference point is meant to focus the portraits on understanding the relationship between the value of money, the price of labor and the struggles to afford basic necessities.
