However, with nearly two million Yellow and White Pages landing in letterboxes up and down the country, the directory may still prove more popular than rhetoric would suggest.

All over New Zealand, StarJam inspires young people with disabilities (our Jammers) to express themselves through music, dance, singing and performance.

StarJam Christchurch is looking for a videographer to be a part of our big concert day on Sunday 24th of November. The dress rehearsal will be around 3pm then the young people will have dinner together, get their hair and make-up done, take group photos, and practise their routines. Ideally someone would be able to film and round up many of these moments as well as the ones on stage. The show will go for a couple of hours but the exact times are still yet to be confirmed.

We are looking for someone who can capture amazing footage before, during and after the concert to build a story of what the concert day was like. We need someone who is able to edit it together with music to grasp the atmosphere of the concert day.

This video will be added to our Facebook and YouTube page after the show.

In return, we’ll give you:
- A koha for your time
- A written testimonial for your CV
- Inclusion of your name / logo in the concert material
- Shout out on Facebook
- Review on Facebook or Google Page
- A fun night at the concert!

Please contact Ella van Wijk on 021782766 or christchurch@starjam.org if you are interested
