Jubilee Project Fellowship is a transformative experience for aspiring filmmakers, producers, storytellers, and changemakers.
Beginning with 3 months of remote pre-production and culminating in an intensive 12-day (July 31-Aug 11) fellowship in Los Angeles, Jubilee Project mentors and teaches a small group of twelve filmmakers to hone their craft and use film for social good. We gather talented creatives from around the world to live together for 12 days, produce high-quality short films, and build relationships with life-long friends. Jubilee Project Fellowship gives you:
A Hands-On Approach to Filmmaking
This year, Fellows have the opportunity to develop, produce, film, and edit their own unscripted "50 people, 1 question" style short film during the course of the Fellowship. In the four weeks prior to the Fellowship, teams are formed and begin idea development and pre-production. Casting, filming, and editing happen during your two weeks in Los Angeles. At the end of the Fellowship, teams will have completed an entire short film.
A Community of Stellar Peers
During the Fellowship, you will be surrounded by a community of stellar peers and passionate leaders. As a Fellow, you will not only form a tight bond with your class, but you will also be a part of our global network of talented filmmakers who have a desire to tell stories to inspire change. Our Fellows work together on films, collaborate on projects, and are a part of a lifelong community of changemakers.
Guidance from Industry Veterans
Our speakers have included Emmy-nominated TV writers, feature film directors, documentary producers, new media pioneers, non-profit leaders, and more. They have been through the trenches and have come out the other side with a wealth of experience and they are here to share their knowledge on topics ranging from storytelling to cinematography to finding your life's purpose to making an impact with YOU.
Fellowship will be held July 31 - August 11, 2016 and tuition for Jubilee Project Fellowship is $1,500 USD.
Once accepted to the Fellowship, Fellows are encouraged to fundraise for tuition through an independent fundraising platform like GoFundMe. Also, scholarships may be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Tuition covers the following:
Filmmaking Ability: Demonstration of technical and creative ability in any element of filmmaking (writing, directing, storytelling, producing, editing, or visual effects). You should be able to gain a new understanding from the Fellowship and contribute to the Jubilee Project Fellowship community.
Purpose & Passion: Demonstration of desire and passion to create an impact, based on application essays. We are looking for dreamers that believe in our mission and have a strong desire to live for something greater and make social change.
Leadership & Teamwork: Filmmaking is a team game and we are looking for those that work well with others, have excellent communication skills, and have the ability to be a good leader or supportive follower.
Diversity: We value diversity of thought, because the best stories are born out of genuine and unique experiences. The Fellowship is comprised of people from different backgrounds, geographies, and cultural backgrounds.
