Title: Request for Quotation (RFQ) for the Provision of Video and Photography Services for Cities Alliance Migration Programme

The Cities Alliance Cities and Migration Programme is concluding the implementation of Phase I (2018-2021). Phase I of the Cities and Migration Programme aimed to enable partner cities, local governments, host communities and migrants to manage challenges and leverage opportunities arising from migration to cities for sustainable and inclusive development. The focus areas covered local migration governance, social cohesion and integration, labour migration, and forced migration, in secondary cities. Part of achieving these objectives meant countering a negative narrative on migration while serving as a local, national, and international coordination platform, knowledge hub, and think tank for advocating new thinking. The Programme is funded by the Swiss Agency for Cooperation and Development (SDC).

Cities Alliance is seeking proposals from suitably-qualified firms and/or consultants for provision of a range of video and photography production to document the progress, results and lessons from Phase I of the Cities and Migration Programme.

The assignment involves extensive travel to remote areas in the Horn of Africa (3-4 weeks) from February to March 2022.

Scope of Work
  • Lot 1: Video documentation and photography on 7 partner cities in the Horn of Africa
  • Lot 2: Video production on knowledge products
  • Lot 3: Interview recordings and photography during the Programme event in Kampala, March 2022
  • Lot 4: Up to five additional short videos based on collected footage
Work required may include, but may not be limited to:

  • All video logging and assembly (includes but not limited to video recordings obtained from Cities Alliance)
  • Advise on technical parameters (e.g. content production workflow and methodology; type of final output format), to ensure fitness for purpose.
  • Shooting and editing traditional video on-location at the Cities Alliance partner cities, or elsewhere based on approved storyboards.
  • Post-production work, e.g. commissioning voiceover narration and music if required, adding title sequence, visual effects, subtitles etc.
  • Configuration of videos for use on different platforms (eg. Cities Alliance website, YouTube, social media, etc.)
Application Closing Date
