Eco- film seeks translaters

Just Do It is the upcoming feature documentary from acclaimed director Emily James.
Currently in post-production and coming to a cinema near you this Summer, the film
is a behind the scenes portrait of the burgeoning environmental activism movement in
the UK. With unprecedented access, this unique body of footage tells the inside
story on the country's biggest troublemakers. Their adventures will entertain,
illuminate and inspire. Have a watch of the trailer here.

Just Do It is a completely independent, grassroots, crowd-funded project with a
slate of indie film giants on board, including Kurt Engfehr (Michael Moore's
editor), and our Executive Producers Christo Hird and Chris Atkins. Thanks to our
groundbreaking production model and unparalleled access, the film's already been
making quite a splash, with shed loads of mainstream and online press getting
excited about the release.

Our aim is for one million people to see the film in the year after it is released.
With this in mind, and with our extensive cinema and festival release in sight,
we're looking for translators to translate our English transcript so that we can
subtitle the film. We want to make sure as many people as possible - the world over
- get to enjoy it.

We are particularly looking for translators from English to:

Mandarin

Hindi

Arabic

Russian

Japanese

Portuguese

Spanish

French

German

Italian

Greek

Turkish

Bengali

We're looking for people with professional translating experience but if you're a
translator of a language not listed above, please do get in touch, we'd love to hear
from you.

As this is a grassroots, independent project, this is an expenses only
collaboration. But we can offer the opportunity to contribute to a ground-breaking
film, with a team of industry professionals.

Please get in touch with Lauren at action@just-do-it.org.uk to find out more.d
