Call for pitches: Free film granted to highest impact project

Are you working to change society or the environment? Would your organization benefit from a short film? If yes, read on!

Since the Summer of 2015, Orbitist has produced many video productions for our amazing clients. Yet on occasion we run into important stories that nobody has the budget to pay for. That's why we're excited to announce our first free film grant!

How it works:

If you, your organization, or your company is involved in a high-impact project that could benefit from a short documentary film, we want to hear from you. We're looking for a project with social or environmental implications. The winning person/organization/company will be selected based on their project's potential impact on society or the environment. We will also weigh projects based on their potential to make a great film that will reach as many people as possible. We are based near Boulder, Colorado and have easy access to most of North America, yet travel costs may potentially impact our decision. Once selected, Orbitist will be completely at your disposal. We want this to be your project and we want to produce a film that does justice to your topic or issue.

How to qualify:

This free film grant is available to anyone! Whether you run a non-profit, are a journalist, a researcher, or just a concerned neighbor, we want to hear about your topic. Simply reach out to us via the form below.

Topics we are interested in (but not limited to):

  • Conservation of lands.
  • Protection of biodiversity.
  • Agricultural innovation and/or the impact of big agriculture on the environment.
  • Our relationship with food and how it impacts the environment.
  • Urban development issues.
  • Water conservation.
  • Fair trade.

What this film might look like:

Golden-winged Warblers are among the most imperiled birds in North America. Their numbers have plummeted nearly 70% in the past 50 years, and this species continues to decline at a staggering 2.5% each year.
