The job, during a normal month, consists of shooting and editing video, creating bumpers and lower-thirds, hiring freelance videographers, ideating new series in collaboration with the editors, and designing the look and feel of multiple ongoing series. The goal is to create award-winning videos, while also helping set the strategy for video archiving, distribution, and syndication.
You'll need to have at least four years experience working in video production. Previous employment at a media company is not required, but experience making documentaries or news segments is a big plus. Yes, you have to know how to use Final Cut or After Effects, work with the latest digital camera equipment and lenses, set up a basic lighting package, mic a person across the room, and manage a small crew. Pay is commensurate with the job title and experience, and you will be working with a growing editorial and development team.
Send a resume, three sample clips, and three links to videos that you wish you'd created, to robotron(at)fcmob.com, with the subject line Video Producer.
