Volunteer with Camera and Editing skills required

Ref: #00059


It involves making a documentary style story with the primary focus of therapeutic healing through film for a Taranaki family that has faced lots of adversity. This project would ideally suit someone who enjoys making stories through film and is also interested in the power of film as a therapeutic tool. There is potential for further work and ideally to gain support of funders for this type of therapy. We would like the volunteer to also with the families consent participate in witnessing the screening of the completed documentary which is where it will all come together in a powerful and healing way.
