SUMMARY OF OPPORTUNITY
Transit Drives Indy seeks letters of interest, qualifications, and proposals from experienced commercial videographers, or professional artists working with video, emerging or established, individuals or teams (the “contractor”) to supply services associated with documenting a series of public art projects in Indianapolis, Indiana from May to October, 2018. The successful contractor will provide raw footage and a 3-5 minute edited documentary video, with sound, voice-over, and text, suitable for promotions, reporting to funders, and encouraging additional projects. The ability to include drone footage is a plus. Local vendors are preferred. Proposals are not to exceed $5,000 in total services.
Transit Drives Indy, a community-based transit advocacy group, is partnering with the Arts Council of Indianapolis on a project called the Cultural Corridors Consortium Indy (3CIndy). This project, funded in part by a grant from Transportation for America (T4A), is infusing artists’ temporary public art projects into the construction phase of the Red Line Rapid Transit and the planning phase of the Purple Line Rapid Transit, to engage relevant neighborhoods in anticipation of the positive lifestyle changes and community benefits of these new bus rapid transit projects.
The purpose of the services is to provide the community and the project’s funders with an exciting and compelling overview of the project as a whole, as well as document individual projects in a creative and informative way. Adding to the compelling nature of the projects would be the ability to provide unusual viewpoints, such as tracking shots from a “bus-eye view” or from above via a drone-mounted camera.
Services will be based on direction provided by the 3CIndy management team.
The contractor will be responsible for capturing content in the field and in studio environments (approximately 15 locations), advising the administrative team on pre-production and location needs, and text, sound, and video editing post-production for final product assembly and delivery. At least one, but not more than three, rough cuts will be made available for project administrator review and comment before agreeing on the final version.
The minimum scope of services outlined in the proposal will include:
This is a work for hire agreement. The contractor may credit him/herself in the final product. After completion, all work product (quality raw footage, rough cuts, and final product) will become the property of Transit Drives Indy and the videographer will be required to transfer copyrights. Transit Drives Indy will license the contractor the rights to show the final, edited work as part of the contractor’s professional portfolio, but the contractor may not use any raw footage or the completed video in any other context without the express written permission of Transit Drives Indy. The contractor will be required to obtain all rights and license to any copyright-protected, third-party music used in the final product and transfer these rights to Transit Drives Indy after project completion.
The contractor will be selected based on the administrative team’s evaluation of the following factors:
All else being equal, preference will be given to proposals from contractors permanently located in the greater Indianapolis area and particularly in Marion County, Indiana.
