Spike Island

Video Editors and Camera Operators Sought

Spike Island and artists Jonathan Mosley, Sophie Warren and Can Altay are looking for video editors and camera operators to collaborate on their project, Rogue Game, which runs from 7 to 30 September. This is an exciting opportunity to play a key role in this live exhibition.

Rogue Game brings together three different sports staged simultaneously in the same arena – a gallery converted into a multi-purpose sports hall – with each played according to its own rules. In doing so, it constructs a setting that gives rise to moments of improvisation, subversion, ingenuity and chance.

We are currently looking for editors who are confident at using Final Cut Pro to work with the footage that accumulates during each game, as well as camera operators who would be available during live games on Saturdays. Participants will be based in the gallery, actively shaping and contributing to the exhibition as it takes place. The moving image work will be played back live on HD projectors as it is edited and will also be available online on Spike Island’s Vimeo channel.

Local travel expenses and lunch will be covered, and all editors and camera people will also be credited in the gallery, on the Spike Island website and when the work is shown in the future.

If you’re interested in taking part in one or more shifts, please contact assistant curator Charlotte Hetherington.
