We’re looking for a Video Editor and DP who can create powerful live and virtual events.
The Video Editor and Director of Photography (DP) creates compelling video content that helps our clients connect with and influence people– in particular those attending live and virtual events. You’ll be working on a team of specialists who deliver a video-driven awards show for successful business leaders across 20+ markets in North America.
As a 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 turn raw footage into compelling content. Success is measured by how well your work helps to create a great experience for the attendees– 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 most of your time in Adobe Premiere, working on your own assigned projects and paying close attention to detail — making sure pre-established templates are used properly, files are tidy and your edits are client-ready.
You’ve heard it before, these are unprecedented times. That’s why you need to be able to double as a DP, both for virtual and in-studio sets. This position requires a professional who is comfortable and efficient in the edit bay AND with our full catalog of camera and audio equipment listed below. When things get back to normal, you’ll also have the opportunity to travel throughout the US to film interviews and other content.
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 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 problem solver, regularly coming up with new ideas and alternate paths around roadblocks. You appreciate consistency and find satisfaction in a job well done. You are technically savvy, embracing the ever-changing world of video and culture to stay relevant. You are resourceful, proactive, and rarely miss a detail. 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
As the Video Editor and DP, you’ll serve as a lifeline to your producer for filming and post-production. You’ll help create great content from interviews and stories, even when a narrative doesn’t naturally exist. To ensure we get the right footage and give the client a great experience, you’ll arrive on set prepared and confident that have what you need to get the shot, whether filming in person or remote. Then you’ll take the footage into the edit bay and turn it into a powerful set of stories.
While you’ll work across a range of projects, the bulk of your time will be spent in service of a series of world-class events that are built around great content. Which means you need to thrive in a more consistent and templated video environment (repeatable awards, long-form educational series, orientations, etc).
We’re currently filming in our studio and remotely. But when things get back to normal, you’ll travel to capture interviews and footage from the live event. We expect this position to travel 4-7 days per month.
The bulk of your time will be spent on the following activities:
- Video Editing
- Filming (virtual and studio)
- Media Management
- Lighting Design
- Audio Acquisition
- Video Graphic Development
- Secondary Tasks
While infrequent, you could 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.
- Script Writing
- Motion Design
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
- Black Magic
- DJI Phantom
- DJI Ronin
- Sony A7sII
- Canon DSLRs
- Google Docs
This is a full-time position located in Marietta, GA that requires some travel in and around the United States. However, due to COVID-19, you would find your self working from home on a regular basis. While our office is generally open to employees, you should have a functional set up at home you can rely on.
If this sounds like a good fit, reach out through the form below to start the conversation. We don’t need a fancy application, just a quick note about why you’re interested, a short version of your story, and a link (or links) to the best work you’ve done.
