The goal is to rotate video creation among a small group of dedicated editors.  A small honorarium will be paid per project. The job includes: filming interviews at the MAC office on our “MAC Couch”, editing those interviews into 3-7 minute segments, and then placing relevant graphics alongside the interview. Required graphics will be provided. Completed videos will be returned to MAC, and posted on the MAC YouTube channel with links to each videographer’s work. Videographers will need to have their own camera, editing software and have to transport themselves and necessary equipment to the MAC office.

Call for Band Members – Indie/Alternative: My name’s Andre Issa, I’m 16 years old and a vocalist. My musical influences are The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys, Cage the Elephant, RHCP etc… The reason for this ad is, I’ve recently been struggling with my band members. They seem not to take it as seriously as I do. Consequently, I don’t have any committed band members. I thought I’d take this opportunity with MAC and call for artists. I’m very interested in doing gigs and having a demo. If anyone is a bassist, drummer, or guitarist I’d like to start a new band in the genre indie/alternative, aged 15-20 preferably. I’m very committed and hoping to take the band as far as possible. Hope to hear from you soon. Please contact me at  issaandre@hotmail.com
