Vacancy: Digital Resource Developer – This Is Us

We are currently looking to commission a Digital Advert and ident for our forthcoming HLF-funded community engagement project This is Us.

The purpose of the advert is to create a living active resource from archive materials and assets to promote the project and be used as an outreach tool/digital asset to engage participants in person and online.

The advert will form an integral part of the project identity and be the basis for a shorter ident that can be used with moving image assets produced during the life of the entire project.

This Is Us – project outline

This is Us will explore the history of industry and migration in the Sincil Bank/Park Ward area of Lincoln from the late 19th Century to the present. Sincil Bank is one of the most culturally diverse areas of the city and continues to attract a mix of migrant workers, communities from across the world, long term and transient residents. Threshold Studios will collaborate with local residents comparing the changing face of the area from the past to the present through history and workforce for engineering firm Robey & Co Ltd (Est. 1854-1988)

Audience: The project is intergenerational so needs to appeal to both younger and older demographics.

Aesthetic: In order to ensure a reach to a diverse audience, the ident and the advert needs to use digitised archive footage (which will be provided to you), be clear and clean and show a contemporary audience connection to historic artefacts and images.

Timeline: The resource would need to be completed by end of June

Fee: £3000 inc VAT

Deadline for submissions: Monday 18th June 2018.
