Joining the Past Preservers Expert Database
Past Preservers wants to expand our network of experts and specialists who can energetically share their knowledge and enthusiasm for their subjects with the viewing public.
Our expert database includes specialists from over twenty countries with a variety of skill sets and specializations. Our goal is to discover bright new talent for the media, if you have an interest in working on television documentaries as an expert contributor or presenter, we want to hear from you.
How to apply:
You will need to upload your CV, two pictures and send us a short film of no more than 2-3 minutes duration. The film should be very straightforward – and can be as simple as a friend recording you on a smartphone – but try and keep the clip active, fun and interesting.
Making your film:
The film should consist of you talking directly to camera, whilst either walking or atleast standing up.
1) Give your name and job title at the start, explain your job in laymen’s terms and talk briefly about what you do.
2) Relate a story, within your area of expertise, that you want to tell and think the general public would find interesting.
Tips for making your film stand out:
a) We are looking for people who can really bring their subject to life in a way that would appeal to a broad audience.
b) Keep a mainstream audience in mind and avoid complicated terminology.
c) Convey your enthusiasm and passion for your subject.
d) Don’t worry about producing a super slick film; you can even film your answers on a smartphone. Just keep it simple – we aren’t evaluating your camera skills. The most important thing is that we can see and hear you clearly.
e) Take a look at our audition video compilation for a better idea on how to make your video!
Please be aware we may showcase your clip on our Youtube Channel and other Past Preservers social media sites.
