Award winning TV company RAW TV is making a global crowd-sourced feature documentary about the unfolding Covid-19 pandemic. As the world as we know it changes forever, we want to make an extraordinary film together that tells the story of this humanitarian crisis through the lens of those living and working through it all around the world. We want to harness the power of technology and the creativity of citizen filmmakers to capture unfolding events during this pandemic on their own camera phones.

We are looking for people from all walks of life to film their daily lives, their routines, the places where they live or work, their thoughts and feelings, and the thoughts of those around them, and share their clips with us. We are interested in everyone’s experiences and points of view. You may be part of multi-generational family living in lockdown in a tiny space, an ambulance driver returning home to his pregnant wife everyday, a family that has chosen to live off grid to escape the pandemic, a small business owner worried about the future … whatever your story we would love to hear from you. Are you a teenager flouting lockdown to meet with your boyfriend? A mum trying to keep the children entertained at home? A volunteer or a care-home worker dealing with the crisis first hand? Are you a farmer struggling to get your produce to market? What is your unique story?
