About the Film Challenge

The challenge brings two visual storytellers - filmmakers and architects - together to shine a light on stories of solutions around the country. The teams will submit films by Sunday, Aug. 14, and two weeks later we will enter the judging period. Winning films will be screened at prestigious festivals including Architecture & Design Film Festival in New York City and Los Angeles, and at the SXSW Eco conference in Austin. 

What You Will Do:

You will be responsible for capturing Behind The Scenes content during a one-day shoot of a team film participating in the I Look Up Film Challenge in your area. The final edit need not be complicated - just a clean, engaging, and energetic 15-Second cut of participants in action, that will generate excitement before judging begins. A quick turnaround is necessary, so as to release the reels in ‘real-time’. You will also be responsible for sending our team footage from the shoot to use in our larger Behind The Scenes reel, which will include footage from around the country.

Location / dates:

  • Chicago
  • Dates flexible between 7/25 - 8/12
