EDITING INTERN/VOLUNTEER

 

We’re seeking an intern to assist with the early phase of the editing process. As the project will be filming for some time, more emphasis at this stage will be placed on transcribing and logging interview footage, for eventual inclusion of text and video into Adobe Premiere Pro.

 

Experience in any phase of editing or color correction, with access to Adobe CC / Adobe Premiere Pro, would be ideal, but are not requirements. This opportunity will allow a candidate to work independently on their own schedule and initiative, off-site and without the need for travel. Instructions and guidance can be conducted via Skype/phone conferences in lieu of in-person meetings, if necessary. There will be considerable direct communication with the film’s director and producers, however.

 

Requirements: Computer & internet access, telephone and/or Skype account.

Preferred, but not required: Experience in Adobe Premiere Pro.

Location: Can work remotely. Ability to travel for occasional in-person meetings preferred, but we can accommodate students who may be unable to travel.

Schedule: Flexible according to intern’s schedule.

Duties will include extensive research into news footage and period photos, as well as stock location footage -- all while being mindful of potential licensing fees vs. royalty free content.
