Video Production Specialist – Job Posting

The Goulet Pen Company

Onsite: Ashland, VA

Full-Time: 40 hours/week (Hourly, Non-Exempt)

Reports to: Media Team Manager

Overview:

As our Video Production Specialist, you will help us to visually display our fountain pen-related products to better educate our engaged and enthusiastic fans and customers. Content marketing helps us build awareness, drive sales, and engage with our community through a number of online channels. Videos showcasing our products have been an integral part of our branding from beginning. It’s something that our customers value highly as both a way to learn about the products they’re interested in buying as well as seeing the passion our team has for the products.

 

You will be working with our co-founder, Brian Goulet, on a number of different video ideas and shoots as well as with other members of our team. Our style of videos is based heavily on detailed product knowledge, with a lot of macro work shooting fine details of particularly small objects (pens basically!). You’ll get to do a little bit of everything: ideation and collaborating on ideas for new videos, lighting and shooting, editing and publishing. While you’ll be working on a team, the majority of your work will be done independently.

 

Responsibilities:

 

Video Production

  •   Record product reviews, using a multi-cam setup when needed.
  •   Record, edit, export, and upload Quick Look, Goulet Q&A, product reviews, announcements, and special project videos.
  •   Create Q&A Slices from whole Q&A videos for the purpose of providing answers about specific products.
  •   Determine the best cameras, lenses, lighting, audio, and supporting equipment to use for given videos.
  •   Adjust style of video to fit the intended audience.
  •   Create lower-thirds, intros, outros, titles, support graphics, animation, transitions, subtitles, etc.
  •   Create shot lists, storyboards, scripts, and schedules as needed.
  •   Capture, manage, and sync external audio.

Publishing

  •   Export and upload files to remote file server for podcasts.
  •   Link YouTube videos to their proper pages on website using external hyperlinks, annotations, and cards.
  •   Properly name, tag, export, and publish all video and audio podcasts.

Graphic Design

  •   Create web graphics that combine photography and text.
  •   Ensure consistent visual style across our website, newsletter, blog, social media, etc.
  •   Create Goulet Pens branded print materials including cards, posters, etc.

Collaboration and Creativity

  •   Brainstorm in a group setting with other members of the media team.
  •   Provide creative feedback for special projects, such as video projects, posters, postcards, and other media.
  •   Coordinate schedules with any other team members involved in video production for special projects.

File Management

  •   Properly name and organize videos, photos, and music to standard naming conventions.
  •   Keep a record of all video files named for podcasts.
  •   Manage file backups.

Equipment Management

  •   Organize and properly format all memory cards.
  •   Maintain proper care of all batteries, lenses, camera bodies, lights, microphones, tripods, visual accessories, computer equipment, and other aides. You will use Mac computers, Canon DSLRs, and a Sony camcorder.

What type of person are we looking for?

An excellent communicator. Quickly respond to requests by email, chat, or in person.

Incredibly flexible. Deadlines and priorities change daily, and the ability to refocus and prioritize is essential.

Super-duper organized. Hundreds of videos are to be named, saved, and backed up using existing naming conventions and file management.

Detail oriented. “Retail is detail” - our customers notice and appreciate every single little detail about the products we display. Often in video form we’re not able to edit it once it’s been published, so making sure you get it right the first time is key.

Great attitude. Work well with others, stay positive, and strive to live out our company values.

Product knowledge. Understand exactly what our products are, so you can best portray them in videos. No previous pen experience is required, just be ready to learn!

 

Experience Required:

  • Minimum 1 year working in a professional video production environment or role.
  • Bachelor’s Degree or Technical Degree in Video or Graphic Design, or equivalent work experience in a video-related field.
  • Demonstrated proficiency in Adobe Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop, (InDesign optional)
  • Comfortable handling both DSLR and camcorder-style cameras, capturing a variety of close-proximity shots.
  • Experience in taking work through the entire video lifecycle, from ideation to publishing.
