Here’s what my original job listing:
Hi fellow creatives,
I’m Noah and manage 2 Youtube channels (Hacking Hollywood and Corporate Streams).
I’m looking for an assistant Video Editor to fill out the team. This person will primarily do the first cut (rough cut) and trim the fat of videos. This would involve cutting out long pauses, um’s, repeated words or phrases, and just speeding up the pace of the videos. I have over 90 videos shot, and 45 or already edited. I would love help with the other 45 or so videos.
You’ll download footage from a shared server (similar to Dropbox). You’ll then just upload the project file (or XML) back to me to do the final pass. I’m hoping to establish a long term editing relationship with someone that wants to grow and learn. I’ve been editing for around 15 years, but there’s always something to learn so I hope that you will have the same attitude.
Requirements for a typical video editor or Assistant Editor:
Access to editing software that can export an XML (premiere Pro Preferred)
Basic premiere pro skills
Communicate well in English
Organized and can follow detailed directions
Dedication to meet project deadlines in a timely manner
Experience with After Effects, Photoshop, and other creative programs a plus
Desire to learn about Hollywood, live streaming, or film gear a huge plus
Attention to details
Write â€œI love editingâ€ at the top of your proposal
Willingness to sign an NDA
Ability to edit fast, or willingness to get better and faster
At estimated 10 hours a week to start immediately.
