THE VIDEO PRODUCER  WILL:

  • A proven track record of producing well-crafted videos from pitch to publication, with a background in researching ideas, writing scripts, conducting interviews, shooting and editing video
  • Experience creating video content in different formats for different types of platforms and screens

  • Are proactive and like solving problems
  • Are relentlessly curious about the world around them
  • Approach other people and challenging situations with empathy
  • Love helping people discover, engage and feel more connected to where they live

We’re more interested in working with great people than in lists of qualifications. If you want to work with us but don’t check all these boxes, that’s OK. We still want to hear from you.

Bonus points if you can get our attention in a creative way. Please no singing telegrams (they’re creepy) or live animals (we have enough already).
