Bristol In A Day

FILM PROJECT – GET INVOLVED: What does your Bristol look like?

Rife Magazine wants to see the lives of Bristol’s young people – like you – during one normal day

Here’s how it works: on Friday, February 27th Rife invites you to film every part of your day. We are following the lives of 12 young people in Bristol and want you (if you’re 13-24) to be a part of it. This is a brand new film project with Rife magazine, which aims to show the world what living in Bristol as a young person is really like.

You send it to us (using mega-easy Dropbox links) and we do the rest – taking the best bits of everyone’s day and creating a film which will show the world what a diverse, interesting place our Bristol is. From Shirehampton to Stapleton,  and Hengrove to Henbury, this is our chance to show the real hidden gems of our amazing city.

But we can’t do it without you.

Tell us that you want to get involved by Sunday 8th February. You’ll need something to film with – a camera or a phone – but we’ll help you out with the rest. Email Jess Connett and she will send you all the information you need.

Some more info:

We want you to film your whole day, from when you wake up to when you go to bed, as well as everything in between and we’ll edit it into a 3 minute video for Rife. Guidelines about what to film and how to film it will be provided when you sign up.

This film will not be used for commercial purposes – it will be put up on the public Rife Youtube account, but we won’t charge anyone for seeing it. We will edit your footage into a three minute video and sort out a social media strategy, but we won’t alter anything you film.

Things we’re looking for:

Technical Guidelines:

  • DO Film in landscape. Please try not use portrait or square, as we may not be able to use your footage
  • DO use whatever kind of camera or phone you want
  • DO film in as high quality as possible
  • DO NOT use any filters
  • DO put your camera on a flat surface or tripod to minimise wobbling
  • DO make sure you are in a quiet place if you speak to the camera

What to film:

  • DO film anything you want. This is as a chance to show your Bristol, so film the things in your community important to you
  • DO film yourself if you feel comfortable. If not, film your point of view
  • DO speak to the camera if you feel comfortable, to introduce yourself or describe what you’re doing
  • DO film your friends and family, but get permission. Each person needs a complete permission form before we can use footage of them. This will be in your briefing pack.
  • DON’T get into trouble filming somewhere you can’t – like in class
  • DO film the outside of your house and your street
  • DO film your journeys to and from all the places you go
  • DO film the things you eat, and film them from directly above if you can
  • DON’T film anything illegal!
  • DO tell people what the film is for. If anyone has a problem with you filming, tell them to contact Jess at Rife.

There you go. We hope you’re excited.
