We are looking for someone to be the What Now Kid Cam Reporter from The Great Pumpkin Carnival.  All the info of what would be required is below, if you know someone that can help us out please get in touch.

It would be ideal to have a child who has entered the giant pumpkin growing comp who can share their personal story .. but then also just get among all the great stuff happening on the day!

Basically we need a child aged around 10-12 (usually) with some big person support to film on an I-phone or go-pro or similar.

Kid cams need 3 things:

Intro: nice and strong full of energy and down the camera.

Content: All sorts of action: Talking to people, nice big wide views, show and tell, close-ups and exclamations.

Outro: Thanks for watching see you later down the camera

OK – here are the basics:

The big things are to remember are:

  • We need strong high-energy presenters to do an intro and outro looking at the camera!
  • They need to film on ipad, phone or go-pro.  (iPhone settings: 1080p HD 30 fps)
  • Keep it nice and steady and landscape (phone sideways)
  • Important!!!  Get close-ups, reactions and some big wide crowd shots.
  • Be careful not to muffle the sound!! Take the go-pro cover off to avoid a silent microphone!

Suggestions: This is not a rule book and your child may have MUCH better ideas J
