  • Title: Impactful Parkinson's Disease Course
  • Job Requirements: Job can be performed remotely.

We are seeking a video editor for a Masterclass-like online course that helps people with Parkinson’s Disease better coordinate their walk. In addition to straight forward instruction, the course has a strong narrative component that tracks the life of former professional dancer Pamela Quinn. Quinn had her career cut short by the disease at age 42, but then, in an unprecedented turn of events, made a scientific discovery that allowed her to regain a significant amount of coordination in her stride. Although she has been teaching and speaking locally and internationally for around 15 years, it has only been in the last five or so years that enough research has come out to fully support all the different facets of what she does. This course is an attempt to scale what she has to offer and bring her story to the masses.

The potential impact of this project huge. “Gait disturbances” ranks as the #1 issue affecting patient quality of life, and when people lose their physical independence, the economic burden of the disease quadruples. By teaching people how to better coordinate their gait and fortify it against deterioration, this course will help address both of these pain points. Patients everywhere will gain greater confidence in their bodies and lead more active lives, and the long-term cost of the disease will decline.

Qualifications for the job include:
- 3-5 years of video editing experience overall
- Prior experience with “educational / non-fiction” editing
- Prior experience with composting and green screen
- A basic grasp of motion graphics
- Most important: A clear communicator who can articulate and can demonstrate a solid grasp of the material, and “push back” in a way to offer creative ideas
- Bonus: Some musical background
- Bonus: Advanced motion graphics knowledge (we may hire out for this, but we would not be opposed to one editor doing it all)

Don't stop now... keep hunting!
