Videographer

New York City

Contract Permanent

Listed 10-Apr-2019


ROLE

We’re looking for an endlessly creative Videographer who thrives in fast-paced environments and loves the challenge of discovering engaging and innovative ways to tell stories. Part director, part sound and lighting guru, and part editor, you’ll be the hands-on visionary with a terrific eye for capturing all the little things (as well as the big and medium things).

You get the technical stuff (like which equipment to use, or how to set up the shots you need). You get the non-technical stuff (people and what moves them, no matter who they may be). And when it comes to creating original content, you’re figuratively bursting with ideas from starting storyboards to putting the final touches on transitions, title cards, and animations.  

We’ll depend on you to fuel our creativity with impactful social, digital, and brand activation campaigns across clients and channels, for video projects ranging from self-shot to directing talent and large crew, on-location or in-studio, together with our in-house editor and larger Creative team.
