Volunteers are Sawbuck's lifeblood. Unpaid interns working for course credit and volunteers working for the experience make Sawbuck's work come alive. At any one time at least a dozen people can be found donating their energy and expertise to one or another Sawbuck project. Our volunteers come from universities, wealthy neighborhoods, disadvantaged communities, and various professions. A deep-seated desire to make films is the one thing that unites them.
Sawbuck volunteers (a.k.a. "Sawbuckians") perform a huge range of tasks: Camera operation, lighting, grip work, sound design, editing, music composition, interview transcription, equipment management, inventory tracking, public relations, fund-raising, and myriad other activities.
Sawbuckians need not live locally. Our volunteers dwell in various states and could even be living in another country. There's always a way to get work done, no matter where you live.
Here at Sawbuck we don't maintain any semblance of a regular work schedule. Work hours tend to be erratic and schedules flexible. If you've got a spare hour or two in the pre-dawn spell on a Sunday, we can find something substantial for you to work on.
One caveat: You must be 18 years or older to volunteer for Sawbuck. If you're younger than 18, you'll need to do your volunteer work with a parent or legal guardian.
