Television Opportunity for Volunteer Firefighters and Volunteer Fire Departments

2/10/11
For Immediate Release

The Minnesota State Volunteer Firefighters Association (MSVFA) has been contacted by Powderhouse Productions to help them contact interested volunteers in their project.

Powderhouse Productions is developing a new show idea about volunteer firefighters and they'd love to hear from you! We're looking to meet some amazing volunteers with great stories. We're asking for volunteer firefighters and their departments to submit video.

Don't worry about editing - we have an editing team that can put together a final piece. What we'd love to see from you is you introducing yourself and your job (both day job and the work you do as a volunteer); meeting some of the people you work with; interesting, amazing stories of some of your past calls; any news clips from past calls. What works for this type of video is you all interacting with each other, so try to avoid just a static shot of you talking to the camera and get more of you talking with other people. You could perhaps take us on a tour of the firehouse, or out where one of your most crazy calls took place - anything you think would be interesting that we should know about you.

Interesting outside activities and hobbies are great to show, too.

Like I said, we can edit, so send us a few of these ideas so we can get to know YOU.

The best way to submit video is to upload what you have on either youtube.com or vimeo.com and then send me the link - we can pull it off from there. Email the link to arosenberg@powderhouse.net.

We are very excited and are looking to start this project ASAP. I know it's a lot, but it would be great if you could please send me footage as soon as you can - within the next week would be most ideal. Also, if you know of anyone else you think might be good, spread the word.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you!
