Video Producer / Editor

Job description

We’re looking for an ambitious, creative, and resourceful video-maker who can output compelling pieces of content ranging from engaging social videos to informative short-form docs featuring innovative tech companies, scientific breakthroughs, and architects of the future. These videos will live on Futurism’s social pages, website, and OTT platforms.

 

We need someone who is native to the digital landscape and adaptable when it comes to our storytelling needs, platforms, and clients.

On top of that, this person should also be able to string it all together in Adobe Premiere, having experience sourcing broll and music. On camera experience is a bonus but not required. Above all, you should enjoy working with a team and welcome guidance from others.
