Text100 is seeking a Producer / Editor to work on-site with our growing content team in the San Francisco office. In this role, you’ll have a chance to do everything involved in producing brilliant video content for our clients and make stories come to life. And have fun doing it. This is a full-time position and reports to the VP/Executive Producer in New York.
You are a social being. And social video oozes from your pores. You see things that are in perpetual motion. Video. Graphics. Text. When you surf the internet, you are equally entertained by a snap from a 12-year old as by a huge branded video.
Watching unscripted (ok… let’s be honest and call it reality) TV is a badge of honor, yet the latest Oscar documentary touches you as well. You can edit. You don’t have to be Thelma Shoonmaker or Walter Murch, but you’ve been editing videos since middle school.
You’ve been on set to know that the editing process starts well before the camera gets to speed. You love to produce and direct a shoot. In fact, you want to do more. You know how to draw out the story of a dud of a subject. Make regular folks feel comfortable in front of the camera. And suck up to the occasional celebrity or C-suite exec.
You recognize a good shot from a bad one and can give direction on how to achieve the latter. You have fun with numbers (or at least pretend to). You’ve built a budget or two and treat the money in it as if it were your own.
Ability to design graphic art such as titles or build a complex and layered sizzle reel is a plus. You are never satisfied with your work but know that sometimes great enough is what’s needed. There isn’t an ounce of “precious creative” in you because you are all about working collaboratively to get to the best creative possible. In short, you’re a production geek, and not only are you ok with that, but you wouldn’t have it any other way.
