We’re looking to hire an individual who can serve as a videographer & editor to capture beautiful locations around the world. At this time we are specifically looking for someone to help us capture more of the PNW in the US as well as western Canada and perhaps even Alaska.
As the videographer, you will plan what beautiful locations to film, travel there, and then quickly walk or jog through your chosen locations with a special easy-to-use hand-held camera that we will provide to you, along with training on how to film. As the editor, you will bring that footage together into the final package. Please see a 5-minute clip we filmed in New York here using our camera system. You would film on foot, bike and kayak as the situation calls for.
The ideal candidate is experienced with kayaking and would be open to taking possession of a new specially configured filming kayak. The job would involve traveling with this kayak to various bodies of water to film, in addition to filming content on land on foot, or on a bike.
You can think about compensation as ranging from at $4-5k a month (USD) for a full-time role, or if you want to stay project based we'd price those projects along those lines. We are a US-based company, and if you are Canadian we would need to bring you on as a contractor. If you are in the US, we would start freelance but could eventually make it a normal salaried position.
An example of a filming trip might look like this: You plan a trip to a mountain, which will require a trip by road, and lodging once there. You create a plan for three different areas to film, around and on the mountain itself. You then estimate what the trip will cost, and ask us for approval for the expenses. After approval, you travel there and film over several days. In your hotel (or camper van), you might review the camera footage on a laptop, and use software tools we provide to stabilize and color correct the footage. Or you may return to your home and do that work later. When you’re back at a computer, your job will be to edit the footage together into a coherent and beautiful tour. This involves shot selection, ordering, correction, grading, and audio processing. We find this part of the job takes several times longer than filming, although the more careful you are in the field the easier the work in the editing room is!
We think you will enjoy this role. It gives you a reason to travel and sightsee, and it will allow you to share beautiful facets of the world with people who do not have the time or means to travel there themselves.
