Wanted: Short Filmmaker

by .

Kohl Publishing is looking for a short filmmaker to produce a 5-6 minute non-fiction film. It promises to be a really fun project and a great opportunity for an early career creative to expand his/her portfolio.

Our Promise

As a start-up indie, you’ll find that what we lack in funds we make up for in our passion for storytelling, collaborative working and shouting about new talent. We pay what we can in £££ and the rest in love, tea and biscuits. Also, we’ll feature you on our site and promote you and your work to our publishing and entrepreneurial networks – we do this with all of the talented freelancers we work with.

What we’re looking for

Must have experience in making short films (production, storytelling, direction and camera work) and have own equipment, or at least access to rented equipment. The role will involve some travel for which expenses will be covered. We particularly welcome applications from filmmakers who live within reasonable distance from Glasgow. While non-fiction filmmaking is not essential, it is preferred. We would also prefer applicants to have their own transport.


We will pay £500 for the finished film. Travel expenses for location shooting is covered, however, day-to-day travel is not. We will not cover costs for rented equipment or additional crew members – the filmmaker would be expected to cover these costs from his/her fee, should they be required. Please note that if you are working as part of a small team, we would expect you to manager your own crew effectively.


Please send portfolios by 5pm on Wednesday 18 July 2012. We will contact shortlisted filmmakers by email and arrange a face-to-face discussion about the project. The successful candidate MUST be available on Sunday 19 August 2012 for filming.

To apply, please send your CV and links to at least one piece of work (do not send files, only links) to submissions@kohlpublishing.com
