2017 Call for Applications: Your Local Nonprofit Could Win a PSA!

Hey Charlottesville & Albemarle area nonprofits & social causes!

Does your organization have something important to tell our community? Want to win a 30-second PSA, produced by advanced filmmakers at Light House?
Now’s your chance!

Apply today to our 2017 Nonprofit PSA Call, and enter for a chance to WIN! Advanced filmmaking students will review all applications and select one organization to feature. The entire project will be supervised by Light House Studio’s Managing Director.
**Please be as specific as possible with your proposal! **

Students will lead the following:
A) Project Research and Selection
B) Concept Creation and Storyboarding
C) Filming and Editing

The project is slated to take place on Saturday, February 25th and March 4th with a pre-production meeting on Saturday, February 18th. The cost of the workshop will be free to the students.
In the past, projects have always been creative and sometimes humorous in their approach, but this will not always be appropriate. Students should focus on a way to “hook” the viewer and draw them into the cause. Different video techniques and technology (e.g. animation, time-lapse, etc.) may also be used, depending on the project and concept. The 2012 PSA for UNICEF Tap was selected for the CineYouth Film Festival in Chicago.

PSA for SARA (Sexual Assault Resource Agency created in 2016
