    Dear colleagues, 


    Although it has been a long time since the 2008 Beijing Olympics was held, a recent post on Chinese social media refreshed memories of it.  A Chinese teenage boy picked up an SD card lost by a foreign tourist in an Internet Café in the summer of 2008 and has kept the photos on the card for 14 years since then.  He posted these photos on Chinese social media a few days ago hoping to find the man who visited Beijing and took the photos in the Olympic stadium and on the streets of Beijing but may not have been able to prove it! :)


    Chinese netizens launched a search campaign for this man and some have reposted the story and his photos on Twitter


    It would be great if you could help to look for this man and ask him about his experiences in the 2008 Beijing Olympics and follow up on the story and see if the whole thing could turn into an Internet phenomenon like the story of 'Brother Orange'.

  • Open Call For Content Collaboration With Science Teacher Community
    Location: Worldwide Application Deadline: 2022-03-31 Range of Quote: 5-500USD

    Dear colleagues,


    Currently, we are gearing up for a new platform - Scigens.com,  an online community for global science teachers, where they share their experiments and teaching methods through the format of short videos and connect with each other.


    This platform is still in a very early stage and we are looking for cooperations and potential content partners in the following ways:


    1. Science Teacher Recommendation

    We welcome all science educators who are interested in making original content to join our platform. So you can help to recommend anyone in that regard you're familiar with to us. Once he or she is registered to our platform and starts to upload their content, we will reward a $10-50 referral bonus to you. 


    2. Home/Classroom Experiment Video Recordings

    Educational and interesting science experiments, recorded with full demonstration and explanation, are also part of the content we’re hoping to build. You can help to film the teachers' experiments yourself or have teachers film themselves in the experiment. We pursue quality content but it doesn't have to be in the standard of documentaries. It would be good enough to just cover one science knowledge point in a single video. We offer $5-30 for each video like this.


    3. Imitation and Localizations 

    Our Instagram account has some experiments and online campaigns. You can work with someone like a science teacher to make similar experiments in English or your own language, helping us to better spread science-related inspirations to your local community. We offer $5-10 for each video like this.



    4. Science experiments by kids

    We also welcome the content of science experiments done by kids. You can work with them, or let them do the experiment on their own. Please feel free to refer to the examples on Scigens.com. We provide $5-10 for each video like this.


    5. Individual Story Package

    We welcome story packages about individuals that deliver humanity, mission, inspiration from the community of science teachers. Once your pitch is commissioned, we will offer $100-500 for each story that comes in a package of interviews + b-rolls.  


    Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Ao HUANG, our editor at SciGens, and you are more than welcome to refer someone to us by forwarding this email to a friend.

  • Open Call For Story Pitch About Tiger Conservation From Tiger Range Countries
    Location: India, Malaysia, Russia, Bhutan, Nepal, Thailand, Myanmar, Kazakhstan, Cambodia,Bangladesh,Indonesia Application Deadline: 2022-01-30 Range of Quote: 200-600USD

    2022 is the Lunar Year of the Tiger and a critical milestone on the TX2 journey, which stands for 'Tigers times two' signaling a global commitment to double the world's wild tigers by 2022. 


    From a population of perhaps 100,000 a century ago, wild tiger numbers hit an all-time low of as few as 3,200 in 2010. That same year, all 13 tiger range governments came together for the first time at the St Petersburg Summit where they committed to double the number of wild tigers by 2022, the next Lunar Year of the Tiger. Since then, India, home to 60 percent of the world’s tigers, approved 14 new tiger conservation sites, and Russia tripled the tiger population in its Land of the Leopard National Park, etc. 


    As it's drawing close to the deadline for TX2, we'd like to produce a series of tiger conservation-related video features to mark this amazing journey and celebrate exciting achievements from all countries engaged in the project.  It would be great to hear story ideas from you under this topic, whether it's tiger reintroduction in Kazakstan, or tiger recolonizing in former ranges in India.

  • Open call for collaboration on China related content
    Location: Global Application Deadline: 2022-01-01 Range of Quote: negotiable

    Dear colleagues, 


    Pear Video has turned 5 years old this month. We want to extend our gratitude to you for working with us through the years. We really appreciate your efforts in collaborating with us to produce the wonderful content. It’s been an extraordinary journey to have witnessed the great changes in the world for the past 5 years.


    The pandemic did not block our communication and stop the people-to-people exchanges. We will continue to collaborate and co-create valuable content to build bridges between China and the rest the world by telling informed, insightful and engaging stories to a global audience. 


    Moving towards 2022, we’re making this open call for content collaboration on China related stories. We’d like to work with global filmmakers and content creators to tell China related stories from a global perspective. It could be anything from uncommon stories of common people living outside China, to cultural exchange between China and other countries on food, literature, art, pop culture, and a more diverse range of area. 


    We’re planning to work with you on producing quality content in various formats. Not only could it be a 3-20 minutes video feature or short documentary focusing on stories of individual human beings, but also videos of other formats, such as Vlog. Meanwhile we also welcome the format of non-fiction written articles as well. 


    Documenting and telling China-related stories is not something new. But what we’d like to capture is up-close and personal slices of contemporary China and the rest of the world that reflects the zeitgeist and latest global trends.


    We look forward to receiving and discussing your story pitches, and/or any suggestions.
