About Space Nation

Space Nation is a space media and experiences company who just launched their space lifestyle online magazine http://spacenationorbit.com in November. The Space Nation Astronaut Program app will launch in early 2018.

Space Nation’s goal is to make space relatable for all and inspire, engage and educate people about new space era. Space tourism isn’t quite here yet, but it won’t be long before booking a space flight will be as easy as booking a flight to New York City.

In the meantime, Space Nation is looking for global citizens and travel experts to create content around the theme “Space on Earth”. They’re currently looking for bloggers to write on Space Nation Orbit, and vloggers for their video series.


Videography Opportunity

Are you visiting a destination in the next 3-6 months that could qualify for the “Space on Earth” series? Are you a star both in front of and behind the camera? Would you like to be part of our entourage of hosts traveling and filming their adventures?

If you said yes to all the above, Space Nation’s Space on Earth travel series needs you!  Previous quality video work is a requirement, but you don’t have to have a large online following.

(This is not limited to the destinations listed on this page. Pitching your own destination ideas for places near you, or that you’re planning to visit, is encouraged.)

*This rate is based on a day rate for one day of shooting. While you may spend as much time as you feel necessary creating the content, it should be possible to shoot the necessary footage in one day.

Requirements

  • Your own video and audio equipment capable of shooting minimum 1080p and recording high-quality audio.
  • One video/phone meeting with our Space Nations team or a pre-shoot email exchange in which the Space Nations team will provide instructions about the footage they’d like to get.
