West Virginia University seeks Full-Time Video Producer
Here's a great job working for one of the best university communications teams in the country---take a look, and feel free to apply! Following is the link to the job opening (with more details) and the job description.
West Virginia University Seeks a Talented Visual Storyteller
West Virginia University’s Division of University Relations seeks a well-rounded video
producer, photographer, and photography editor to help identify and tell the university’s stories
to a diverse audience. The ideal candidate will be part photojournalist, and part video
producer/editor—with a creative talent for capturing action and emotion, whether in video or in a
single photograph. The ability to develop compelling narratives is important, as is the ability to
think creatively and explore new ways to tell stories—in standalone videos and photo galleries,
and as contributing media within larger transmedia projects.
The producer should be equally at home working alone or in larger creative teams that include
writers, designers, web developers, and other multimedia producers. Individuality is important,
as is teamwork and the ability to find common ground with other creative professionals. Good
communication skills are essential, as the position requires working with people throughout the
university including students, faculty, and administration. Finally, demonstrated ability to adapt
and grow with emerging technologies is an advantage.
Requirements are a Bachelor’s degree in journalism, communication, graphic design, marketing,
public relations, or related field and two years of experience with all aspects of multimedia
(slideshows, videos, etc.), including but not limited to production, project management, creative
direction, two years of experience with shooting and editing photos, and one year preferred
experience with new writing/editing.
Additional technical skills preferred include a solid working knowledge of Canon or Nikon
DSLR’s; experience with leading video editing applications (Premiere Pro preferred but not
essential); experience with leading image editing software (Adobe Creative Suite products
preferred but not essential); knowledge of Apple computers; knowledge of digital media
management techniques; and solid knowledge of audio capture and lighting techniques.
Also preferred is a working knowledge of various digital delivery methods for video and photography—from social media, YouTube, and online news to video walls and large-screen projection.
Interested applicants should send a cover letter and resume to Dave Rogers at:
Stephen.firstname.lastname@example.org. Application must be received by July 20 for consideration.
