  • 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.
