  • Research and develop potential story arcs / angles for assigned projects
  • Create shot lists, beat sheets to review with senior video team members
  • Ensure that production protocol is being followed during shoots; obtaining releases when necessary, managing receipts for budget-related expenses, etc
  • Pitch and develop new concepts under the direction of senior video team members
  • Track performance of your videos once published/released and utilize both quantitative and qualitative historical data to influence future edits
  • Mentor junior video team members and help them develop their cinematography skill-sets

 

Who we’re looking for:
