Audio Visual Production Services
On behalf of all Canadians, Parks Canada protects and presents nationally significant examples of Canada's natural and cultural heritage, and foster public understanding, appreciation and enjoyment in ways that ensure the ecological and commemorative integrity of these places for present and future generations.
Parks Canada has a small in-house video production team. From time to time, this team requires video production support, either for capturing video on-location in national parks, national historic sites and national marine conservation areas, or for post-production using existing media, or both. The resulting videos are posted on Parks Canadas website and social media channels.
Parks Canada requires the services of a contractor to record and/or edit, often on short notice, videos for Parks Canadas website and social media channels. The audience will vary somewhat depending on the topic of each video, however they will be primarily intended for adult Canadians with an interest in the conservation and restoration of national parks, national historic sites and national marine conservation areas or with an interest in visiting these places. The target audience will not necessarily have in-depth scientific knowledge.
The Contractor will be required to record and/or edit videos and deliver the resulting files to Parks Canada. In most cases, Parks Canada will provide a shot list and/or script and will provide necessary direction. Most videos will be shot documentary / ENG style with a one-person crew handling both sound and camera, however some shoots may also include scenes that would require a sound recordist, lighting and/or a teleprompter operator. The resulting videos will be approximately 2-5 minutes long, depending on the content, and will be produced in Canadian English and French for the Parks Canada website and YouTube and Facebook channels.
