Our Media team captures memories, it captures the fun, the creativity, and the loving spirits that make up what this community is. It is a team that produces something that allows us to look back and remember <3

What we do

We capture images, and sometimes video of all the happenings of Freezer Burn and work to make sure that the right images are released to the public through social media and our Freezer Burn website. Our Media team oversees the Media registration for professional or near-professional photographers that would be using the images on their own social media. We make sure that these registered photographers are sticking within our Media Policy and the important boundaries of consent and respect.

Team Dynamics

Usually we have the 1 lead and multiple registered media members. Our Media members may be tasked with specific objectives by our Media Lead that will help us build our online image catalog (for example taking pictures of the Art grants, fire art, mutant vehicles etc) This team works closely with artists of all kinds, but also works closely with the ARTery to ensure the all Freezer Burn art is captured and submitted. 

Number of Volunteers

A healthy 5-10 media members have been found to effectively cover the event.

Shift Length
