Opportunity to photograph the making a film about WWI

24 July 2014

SIG: Doc and Visual Journalism

This is an opportunity to photograph, on two occasions, the making of a film about WWI, on 15 August and 21 September.   Places are limited so check out our events page for more details on both events and contact the organiser.

WAG Screen is a community filmmaking group dedicated to telling stories of Lincolnshire’s history and heritage.

They are currently making a film about a Lincolnshire family during WW1 based on their unpublished archive of letters from the front line, memoirs, scrapbooks and photographs.   ‘Tell Them of Us’ is directed by Nick Loven and stars Victoria Rigby.

It is funded by The Forces Covenant Fund and The Evan Cornish Grassroots Fund. You will have the opportunity to photograph the actors and crew at work. As filming is occurring attendees will be required to act stealthily without interrupting procedures. 

The official stills photographer John Bennett will be available to assist as will RPS member and professional photographer Stewart Wall.

I would like to be considered for the September date if there is a place available, please. My photography (amateur only) is mainly people, but not formal portraits, and I am trying to bolster my collection ready for an attempt at the ARPS later this year or early next year. (I have CPAGB and AWPF).
Thank you,
David.

I am a freelance photographer living & working from Cardiff. I major in sport, but I've had some experience of this type of shoot by following the filming of BBC's Dr. Who & a Disney pilot production in recent months.
I'd love the opportunity to broaden my photographic horizons through this offer & to gain some invaluable experiances from the professionals on site.
