promotional video development



Tuesday, November 13th, 2012— The Hyattsville Community Development Corporation (CDC) is issuing a Request for Qualifications from local filmmakers for consideration to produce a suite of fixed-budget, short, clever promotional videos intended to create buzz, market & position the Prince Georges County Gateway Arts & Entertainment District, and its stakeholders. Access to other upcoming film-related opportunities working with small businesses, non-profits, and community projects through referral is a consideration for the submitter. The CDC seeks submittals that demonstrate the filmmakers ability to meet our marketing needs for a wide range of purposes. Qualified filmmakers will be contacted as part of our program, as well as per opportunity.


Film and Digital Media in the Gateway Arts District

The Hyattsville CDC collaborates with, supports, and invests in an economically-driven network of creative film entrepreneurs looking for opportunities in Hyattsville and the Gateway Arts District. Film and digital media (FDM) is an effective means to communicate, launch, and document influential ideas, unique places and contributions.

Hyattsville CDC has co-sponsored and assisted FDM programming in many forms: beginning with the Prince Georges County premiere of Teza in February 2010; The Cultural Exchange, Hyattsville Branch Librarys ongoing Independent Film Series; the Third DMV International Film Festival in June 2012; and has fostered The Creative Edge Film Studio of Prince Georges County, to aid in its process building educational programs and film opportunities across the County.

Filmmakers who deliver creative work, whether formal or cutting-edge, are invited to submit their Qualifications, along with the supporting material listed in the attached PDF. PDF
