how to apply
If you’d like to volunteer with Cat Fly, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know how you can help!
Available roles vary from event to event. Some of our most common ones are below:
General Event Staff
Event staff will help set up the venue on the day of the event: moving tables and chairs, preparing decorations, setting up raffle and merch tables and the step-and-repeat, etc. We need several volunteers to man the merch table, to check in people with tickets, and to sell any extra tickets at the door. Experience working at other events or on film sets preferred, but not required.
Event Photographers & Videographers
Capture the energy and awesomeness of the event. Take photos/video of guests and filmmakers in front of the step-and-repeat as well as major memorable moments throughout the evening. Please send us a link to your portfolio, reel or a few photo samples for this role.
Run around downtown and West Asheville as a team with the giant Cat Fly heads, handing out flyers and handbills, garnering attention and excitement for the upcoming event. Chat with people on the street about what Cat Fly is all about and sell them on the upcoming event.
Video Tech: Be in charge of setting up the projector at the venue for showing a badass sponsors slideshow and operating the screening reel during exhibition. Ability to focus and work off hosts’ verbal queues a must.
Audio Tech: run sound for the event music and screener. Audio tech plays their own DJ set as background music throughout the event. They also set up the speakers so sound plays with video during the screener. Preferably a musician or familiar with running sound on film sets; good taste in party music required.
Reach out to companies or organizations that may be interested in a collaboration with Cat Fly. Present our sponsorship program and coordinate between both parties to confirm a sponsorship deal. Prepare and send them terms of sponsorship and supervise the enactment of the deal.
