PhD Documentary on Global Impact of Child Maltreatment - Seeking Documentary Scriptwriters

A university research team is producing a documentary on the global impact of child maltreatment (and best practice prevention initiatives), and is seeking individuals to join their Script Development Team

We have already assembled a team of experienced professionals to bring this important project to life but are still looking for people to help us...:

  • Develop five x two minute scripts for animated sequences to complement key sections of the narrator script
  • Identify optimal Archival stills & video to complement the narrator script
  • Identify optimal B-roll footage to shoot to complement the narrator script
  • Identify optimal infographics to complement the narrator script
  • Identify optimal Titles & Supers to complement the narrator script
  • Transforming the “academic” language of the current narrator script into “broadcast copy”

Experience in documentary scriptwriting preferred but not essential. Organisational skills and passion for contributing to the eradication of child maltreatment are the main application requirements.

We are based in Sydney but the role can be performed from home.

Compensation: Initially this project is exclusively for distribution within the academic community. However commercial sale will be sought for the program following academic submission. We are seeking someone who is willing to join our team and work according to their availability on this important student / humanitarian project in return for senior level credits, plus the opportunity to include the project in their showreel (plus payment if and when commercial proceeds are generated).

If interested please email:

Thank you.
