Humanity Stoked in the news:

Humanity Stoked has had some great coverage in the press (www.HumanityStoked.com/press), but we need more…A LOT MORE and it’s all about charity.  Humanity Stoked is giving all it’s revenue to charity to help make a positive difference in children’s lives and to help affect positive social change. The more press coverage we get about the film and around the Official Theatrical Trailer, the better distribution deal we’ll get, and that means more visibility about the social issues in the film and the more money will go to charity.

Of course an ideal volunteer would be a professional PR Agent, but anyone with connections that may help get coverage for Humanity Stoked is of value, so please reach out using the form below.  Examples of what we need include:

A) Posts or stories on social media from anyone with a large following

B) Short pieces about Humanity Stoked or the trailer in any print publication or any website or blog

C) Full stories or interviews with the film’s Producer/Director or crew member.

The volunteer would need to identify print publications, websites, blogs, and podcasts that would be appropriate to provide coverage to Humanity Stoked, and to make contact to arrange that. Must be professional and have good phone, research and letter writing skills.

B-Roll Coordinator (can be remote/done from any location)

For those unfamiliar with the term, B-Roll is supplemental or alternative footage intercut with the main shot. For example, if Tony Hawk is talking about a particular trick,  and while he’s describing it, footage of him doing that trick is shown, THAT footage is called B-Roll.  

The B-Roll coordinator works with the Director and Editor and has  two primary jobs. 1) search the internet for the right B-Roll as needed and 2) reach out to the whomever owns the rights to the B-Roll we choose to get permission for its use in Humanity Stoked.

No experience needed but volunteer must be professional and have good phone, research and letter writing skills.
