We are a professional team, working hard, taking pride in the projects we build, and having fun along the way. This is a fast-paced, but relaxed environment, and we are looking to add a Video Producer & Editor to create compelling stories and visuals that help support our next-gen applications, exhibits, and digital experiences. If you believe in the following, we would like to hear from you!
- Everyone taking ownership and working passionately makes the day more fun, and it’s easier for the team to create innovative, cutting-edge projects.
- Approvals go smoother when the project is kept on track and everyone is confident in the process and direction. It’s better to understand what we are building, be an empathetic creative, and stay focused during production instead of reacting to edits and project fixes later. It’s easier to do it right the first time than to do it twice!
- A good team understands that they impact each other’s well-being and pursuits. The quality of our individual work also affects the rest of the team.
- Not having to backtrack on a project gives us more time to spend on the fun, experimental projects and continued education!
- Winning awards while making an audience smile is fun and incredibly satisfying!
