  • Title: Man + River
  • Pay Rate: $30.00 - $35.00 / Hourly - DOE
  • Job Requirements: This is a remote job.
  • Additional Requirements:
    • *MOST IMPORTANT* Do you have a STRONG grasp on storytelling? (there are billions of ways to edit a video, and editor's job is to take the pieces and craft an engaging story)
    • Do others consider you a funny, lighthearted, enthusiastic person?
    • Are you proficient and "quick" with Adobe Premiere Pro? (efficient workflows, hot keys, troubleshooting etc)
    • Do you have experience using Google Drive, or a similar cloud based storage platform in conjunction with editing? If not, could you quickly learn?
    • Are you open to learning new workflows, and following written instructions well?

I'm looking for a rare breed of person who has a combination of:

1. Strong storytelling skills

2. Strong video editing skills

3. *Preferably* somebody who has experience editing for YouTube, which is very different from Television, Film, and corporate video editing styles



Here's a description of the work I need done from start to finish:

1. Have Google Drive for Desktop installed on your machine

2. Make the root folder of the project "available offline" which will download all the files to your desktop

3. The project will be pre assembled, meaning the 3-4 hours of footage has already been distilled down to a 12-20 minute sequence, and the basic story structure is already 80% there. Your job is to find opportunities to squeeze every drop of life from this sequence, making it able to compete with any viral video on YouTube. This includes scoring the video with engaging music. (Ever watch movie clips without the music track? Ability to choose the right music, and have the music reflect the events of the video in real time is the MOST IMPORTANT SKILL! I have a bank of songs to choose from, with 10 different genres/moods.) It also includes re organizing clips into the order that maintain the tension of the story, and keep viewers watching through to the very end.

4. Watch my most recent videos, and match the editing style of pace, music, humor, animations/motion graphics, crops, sfx, tastefully punctuating the video with drone shots and b-roll, captions etc. (Color grading is not required, I'll handle that)

5. Deliver V.1 via Frame.io, and I'll leave notes for changes. Complete changes, and deliver V.2 etc, usually V.4 is the final edit.



If this doesn't describe your experience and abilities, please don't apply. If this sounds like you, there's an exciting future ahead, please apply!

Don't stop now... keep hunting!
