About You

You're a filmmaker, shooter, and editor and you're eager to improve your skills at a collaborative video agency. You've shot a diverse portfolio of videos that educate, inspire, and spark action. You play a pivotal role in the production process, preparing the video equipment that allows film crews to do their best work. On set, you're a capable camera operator, AC, grip, and production assistant. You're excited for the chance to spend many of your working days on set, including travel for domestic and international shoots. When you're not shooting, you're editing projects with narrative flair and technical precision. Most importantly, you're solutions-oriented, organized, curious, and relentlessly upbeat amid a fast-paced and challenging work environment.
