Kannapolis Arts is looking for videographers/filmmakers to create web videos

Kannapolis Arts would like to start producing a short video series that present 1 to 2 minute videos that profile an artist or band. We are looking for individuals who could come out to the Kaleidoscope Cultural Arts Festival and film some of our artists talking about their work and some video of the work to edit into a short 1 to 2 minute profile. We would also like video “overviews” of the festival that capture what it’s like to attend Kaleidoscope.

We would also like crews to go out and produce videos in the community, interviewing artists and performers on location as well as covering other area events. The goal is to promote all arts and culture in Kannapolis and surrounding communities.

If anyone is interested contact mknox@modernfilmzine.com for more information.
