Freewaves is seeking 2-minute artists-activists-storytellers’ videos about health, environment, rights, or anything else on your mind to show to I million riders per day on all 2,000 Metro buses in L.A. County in 2013. On Transit TV we will show animations, documentaries, narratives and experimental videos. Riders include more women, more people of color, and more low income Angelenos. Demographics are linked at transitv.
In a mobile environment with competing sounds, visuals are more important. Accepted videos will be included in a one-hour program of news, ads, and quizzes. Videos will be shown for approximately 2 days as part of the Summer or Fall screening periods. Freewaves will post accepted videos on our web site (if you agree) for at least two years with a GPS location tag on our L.A. map.
Freewaves will pay $100 – $400 per video. ($100 for pre-existing, $200 for custom editing, $400 for newly commissioned works). Freewaves will ask bus riders to text us in response to messages appearing on Transit TV about places in L.A. *For more information, and to submit your video, Visit the Open Call.
