Videographers wanted! The Special Olympics Unified Cup Detroit 2022 media team needs your help! 


This summer, from Sunday, July 31 – Saturday, August 6, Special Olympics athletes from around the world will be competing in football (soccer) at the highest level of competition that Special Olympics offers - the Unified Cup. To showcase this world-class event, we are looking for volunteer videographers to capture 1-2 minutes of footage from each of 60 matches that will take place between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. throughout the week to be used locally, nationally, and around the world!
If you’re an experienced videographer who will be in Detroit on any of those dates with an interest in helping out for a shift or two, please reach out to Bo Parker at bo.parker@somi.org and include a link to a sample of your work.
Know someone who might be a fit? Pass along the opportunity by sharing their name with us.
Desired experience:
    • Sports capture background
    • Experience operating a video camera
    • Some expertise in managing captured data (namely, uploading to a server in a timely fashion.)
