Call for Volunteers

Help! We are having a baby boom at 90to5! All of us have daytime jobs – we used to organize the 90to5 Editing Challenge in our free time, that’s now filled with changing diapers. But we can still make it happen – with your help! The idea is that quite a few people will do just a little task each, rocking it together. Who is in?

These are some of the things you can do to make this year’s challenge the best one ever:

Socializer(s)

– share editing related stuff you would share anyways on your favorite social network on behalf of 90to5.
– post about the 90to5 edits

Celeb Connector

Approach seasoned editors and editing celebs on our behalf – get them to e.g. give us an interview (skype / written) or give a critique to the winning edit or a 10 minute skype consultation to the winner (or to join the jury).

90to5 Editors Communicator

Reply to questions 90to5 contestants have and collect their votes for the Editor’s Pick Award.

Head of Jury

Be in touch with our jury, collect votes or even find additional jurors.

WordPress Manager

Create and post all movie pages at 90to5.org (some basic HTML knowledge is a plus)

Editor in Chief

Add the title card to front and end of the submitted edits, and convert em to mp4. (Using our templates for After Effects and Photoshop should make things fairly easy)

Sponsorship Acquisitor

Try to connect with new sponsors from the editing world so we have nice prizes and can pay the bills for the server or get goodies for jurors/volunteers.

Film Rights Collector

Approach production companies / rights holders on our behalf in order to allow their films to be edited at the 90to5 challenge

Web Developer

We have a few ideas how to improve our websites, but little knowledge/time to do so. You happen to know some php and wordpress and would love to test your skills? You’re in 😀

…or anything else that you can think of that you would love doing and you believe the 90to5 challenge could use.
 

All positions can be shared by a few people so it should be a piece of cake for everyone. The positions we can’t fill, we’ll still try to do ourselves. If we don’t get a lot of response though, there’s still a chance we might cancel the event for this year and hope for our babies to behave by 2017…

Keep in mind – as long as we don’t win the lottery or a solvent sponsor, this is just for fun. However, communicating on our behalf with jurors/celebs/sponsors or other editors will surely win you new friends, expand your professional network and hopefully open some doors for you. Also you might gain some new insights and might influence with your ideas where the challenge will be heading in the future. We definitely put your name/picture on our webpages and volunteer work does look good on your resume, too 🙂
 
Just drop a message to gro<tod>5ot09null<ta>ofni mentioning your favorite position(s) and we will jump for joy 😀
 
If you can’t make it yourself, please share this to your friends who might be interested in lending us a hand. Thank you so much for your support!
