UnMEDIAted Videographer

Second Weekend Only

Capture The Forest with Electric Forest’s Official Video Crew! New in 2017, the UnMEDIAted Program is expanding to offer an opportunity to budding videographers. If you are excited by the idea of hands-on learning with the official video team and producing your own special video assignment at Electric Forest, read on!

All who are interested are invited to submit a unique video project that is custom-shot to capture the spirit of The Forest outside of Rothbury, and to propose what they would capture in their special video assignment at Electric Forest 2017. HQ’s favorite video projects will be shared with the Forest Family, with one videographer selected to join the video team!

PLEASE NOTE ALL VIDEOS SUBMITTED MUST BE ORIGINAL CONTENT MADE SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS PROJECT.
