We’re looking for a DP/Video Editor who can capture and edit a great story.
The DP/Editor creates compelling video content that helps our clients connect with and influence people. This position requires someone with a strong understanding of shot composition, lighting, camera equipment, talent direction and pre-production planning– but can also work magic in the Edit bay. Our scope of work spans many creative styles and approaches, so versatility is a must. But the common thread is that our content is intended to elicit a specific response, whether that be to communicate information, influence opinion, or drive action.
As a key member of the Between Pixels team, you’ll be a front-line storyteller, working with clients and colleagues to identify what’s important, what’s not, and how to get the right message across. Success is measured by how well your work meets a business goal– it’s creativity with a purpose.
You’re the specialist, but at a company like Between Pixels you’ll need a pretty diverse set of skills and interests. You’ll spend a half your time on set or planning production and the other half in the edit bay doing everything from rough cuts to completely finished edits. You may also find yourself writing, scouting locations, creating project budgets or chipping in to help our producers. Whatever it takes to get the job done.
WHO YOU ARE
Success at Between Pixels requires a high level of competency in your role as well as a personality and character that is well suited for a small, dynamic environment. You can do great things here but it’s not right for everyone. We invite you to do a little reflecting to make sure the following describes you.
You are creative, regularly coming up with new ideas and opportunities as a natural problem solver. You are technically savvy, embracing the ever-changing world of video and culture to stay relevant. You are adaptable and resourceful, comfortable with change and finding ways around a dead-end. You are observant and are able to pick up on cues from your environment, often seeing things others don’t. You love stories, whether telling or hearing them. And you are humble, constantly looking to grow and seeing feedback as an opportunity to get better.
Although the number of years is not an accurate predictor of success in this role, it’s likely the person to fill this role will have between 3 and 7 years of relevant experience. That experience could be as an independent contractor, corporate employee, or on the agency side.
WHAT YOU’LL DO
The DP/Editor serves as the expert in using the camera, lighting and the environment to tell powerful stories. You will work across a range of projects, from the highly inspired to the relatively mundane. But each is an opportunity to do great work. The bulk of your time will be spent on the following activities:
- Audio Acquisition
- Video Graphic Development
- Secondary Tasks
You’ll also find yourself helping out in one or more of these areas on a regular basis. If you’re weak in an area or two, we’ll put a plan together to bring you up to speed quickly.
- Motion Design
- Script Writing
You’ll need basic knowledge of the following programs, apps and hardware. We use most of these on a daily basis, but this list evolves as we test and implement new tools.
- Adobe Premiere
- Adobe Illustrator/Photoshop
- Adobe After Effects
- RED Cinema
- Panasonic GH5
- DJI Phantom
- DJI Mavic Pro
- DJI X5R/Osmo
- Black Magic
- Sony A7sII
- Canon DSLRs
- Quasar Science
- Google Docs
