OIAF Bus Ambassador
Want a subsidized ride? Become an OIAF Bus Ambassador
We are looking for an organized and punctual animation student who would act as a liaison between OIAF and your fellow classmates in Toronto. You would be helping us to make sure the bus pick-up time and location are communicated widely. Then, the Friday morning, you will arrive at the bus before everyone else and act as our “eyes on the ground” in Toronto to ensure everyone finds and makes it onto the bus. You should be willing to provide your cellphone number to all attendees using the bus so they can communicate with you the day of if needed. After arriving in Ottawa you are “off duty” and free to enjoy the Festival. Then, on Sunday at 3 pm, you will make sure everyone on your list is on the bus before departure back to Toronto. In exchange for your services, we will give you a complimentary Toronto Bus Package, including a Weekend Pass to OIAF. The number of ambassadors needed is dependent on the number of animation students who sign up.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in this position.
