Request For Proposals: Video Production

The Fabindia Schools seeks proposals from quality video production teams to film interviews of school students, instructors and administrators, as well as background footage for use in a promotional video. The primary purpose of these video will be to portray the important work that we do--helping  students from low-income backgrounds with affordable quality rural education--to prospective partners and donors. We envision having professionally-made, well-produced content that helps The Fabindia Schools tell its story visually in a compelling way. We want the film crew to be able to capture the essence of The Fabindia Schools effort --including interactions between students and their teachers and mentors. The footage will be captured at several of the school sites at Bali in Rajasthan, to be used in three-to-five minute online video.

The video production team for the project will be responsible for quickly setting up, filming and tearing down quality individual shots with the best possible sound, video and lighting arrangement, using their own equipment to film the production. The  staff will help evolve the story and coordinate the location and timing of the video shoots on school campuses and arrange meetings with the founders / trustees of BAT. For more
