Oh yes, this is the gig of dreams.
Historica Canada, the organization behind those iconic ‘Heritage Minutes’ familiar to everyone in Canada – from the Halifax Explosion to the Underground Railroad – is looking for someone to create two new episodes.
“Historica Canada is seeking a production company or team to develop two new Heritage Minutes … that resonate with the brand and legacy of the celebrated collection while offering a fresh vision to capture new audiences,” reads the job posting.
With Canada’s 150th birthday around the corner, there’s certainly no shortage of inspiration to choose from. Hell, pitch Drake if you must – Historica Canada’s a proven fan.
Some of the suggested themes include:
• Notable women of the 20th century
• Canadian innovation
• Stories of diversity (racial, religious, LGBTQ2S)
Oh, and you’ll be given a $250,000 budget to make it happen. There are plenty of other details, of course, which you can read here.
So if you live and breathe Canada, with the creativity, vision and production talent to match, drop everything immediately and get to work.
This is your chance to become part of our heritage.
